This film vividly shows Dr. Gulliver's travels among the Lilliputians, the Brobdingnagians, the Houynhynms, and others. Made for television, the film successfully conveys many of Swift's criticisms of Western Society.
Gulliver's Travels is a gripping and effective update of the classic. This version is especially noteworthy for its effective portrayal of the later portions of the book, which are not usually presented to children.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph contained in the Learning Guide to Gulliver's Travels.
A bitter satire of the society of the day, the novel was immediately popular. Unfortunately, a strong argument can be made that the failings of mankind and the ills of society to which Swift objected have improved only slightly during the 250 years since the book was written.
The Learning Guide to the film Gulliver's Travels contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
