Gulliver's Travels is a 1977 film based on the novel of the same name by Jonathan Swift. It mixed live action and animation, and starred Richard Harris in the title role.

The opening sequence in live action shows Gulliver announcing his intention to go to sea as a ship's surgeon, followed by scenes of a shipwreck. The remainder of the film has Harris on Lilliput and Blefuscu, with the tiny inhabitants created by animation.

At the very end of the film, having escaped by boat from Lilliput, Gulliver encounters one of the giant inhabitants of Brobdingnag, but there is nothing more about his adventures there or in the other lands mentioned in the novel.
