The Adventures of Gulliver is a television cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1968. The show is based on the novel Gulliver's Travels. The show originally aired Saturday mornings on ABC between 14 September 1968 and 5 September 1970. Seventeen episodes were produced, which were syndicated as part of The Banana Splits and Friends Show in the early 1970s.


While searching for his father, Gary Gulliver and his dog, Tagg, end up shipwrecked on an island. On this island is the kingdom of Lilliput, where its inhabitants have a height of only a few centimeters. Gulliver and his dog are caught by the Lilliputian people, while they're recovering from the shipwreck, but afterward they become great friends. With the help of the Lilliputian people, Gulliver continues searching for his father and the treasure using a map his father gave to him. Also in search of the treasure is the evil Captain Leech, who is always attempting to steal the map from Gulliver.


  • This is Hanna-Barbera's first adaptation of the book. A second one, simply titled "Gulliver's Travels", was featured as a 1979 episode that was part of CBS's Famous Classic Tales and was produced by Hanna-Barbara Australia.
  • This is Jerry Dexter's second acting credit with Hanna-Barbera, the first being in Shazzan with Josie and the Pussy Cats co-star Janet Waldo.
