Max Fleischer's first TechniColor animated feature.
Reportedly, the success of Walt Disney's 1937 film "Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs" spurred the Fleischer Studios into producing this film at a budget of $700,000.
Actor Sam Parker's movements were rotoscoped from live-action film to become the figure of Gulliver. The other characters were shown through animation.
Some 12 tons of paint and 500,000 celluloids were used for the 115,700 composite scenes in the film.
The world premiere took place in Miami, Florida on December 18, 1939.
Songs: "It's a Hap Hap Happy Day," music and lyrics by Sammy Timberg, Al Neiburg and Winston Sharples; "Faithful Forever," music and lyrics by Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin.
The first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for best original song.
