* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation - Why should we listen to the Houyhnhnm? They're horses, who gives a crap?
** Gulliver's misfortunes are intentional and he prefers being InHarmsWay. He secretly loves his arduous trips, hence why he spends very little time at home before he leaves for sea, intending to be shipwrecked ''again''.
*** [[HenpeckedHusband Or maybe he just hates the missus.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Part two describes Brobdingnag as being located in a part of the world which was not known to Europe at the time. Now we call it Alaska. It's certainly big enough...
** Also, the invention from the MonkeysOnATypewriter entry - again, a device that randomly combines words so that "the most ignorant person, at a reasonable charge, and with a little bodily labour, might write books in philosophy, poetry, politics, laws, mathematics, and theology, without the least assistance from genius or study". Today, we call this [[TheOtherWiki Wikipedia]].

* AwesomeMusic: The whole [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr11nLTG4qc&list=PLBD77608132774F86 Soundtrack]] is beautiful and quite catchy.
** ''Faithful Forever'', enough to where the song even got an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination!
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEqawMf7fKo I Hear A Dream'' ]]is also a very well done, solemn piece.
* CultClassic: For all of it's faults, the film was popular in it's heydey and still an enjoyable cartoon romp today, and it's remembered fondly enough to be considered a legitimate classic. It helps that the film is one of the very few animated features to be in the PublicDomain, thus making it an easily accessible staple of classic animation.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Everyone's heard of Lilliput, few of Brobdingnag, [[CastleInTheSky only anime fans]] of Laputa, and almost no-one of the Houyhnhnms (the [[{{Neologism}} coinage]] ''yahoo'', meaning "ill-mannered cretin", comes from the fourth voyage).

Added DiffLines:

** Whether the Houyhnhnms are meant to satire the Enlightenment of the 18th-century or they really are Swift's idea of the perfect society has been debated by scholars for years. Given the theme of the rest of the book, it's most likely the first one.

** The surreal events of the book combined with Gulliver's increasing misanthropy raises many questions about his mental health and how reliable he is as a narrator. There have been some speculation regarding how much of the story actually happened and how much is just in his head.
