An Englishman returns after nine years abroad and tells strange stories of the tiny people of Lilliput, the giants of Brobdingnang, the flying island Laputa, and the Houyhnhnms, a race of intelligent horses.
A father and daughter are caught in a parallel universe where the great Queens Snow White (Camryn Manheim), Cinderella (Ann-Margret), and Riding Hood III (Kim Thomson) have had their kingdoms fragmented by warring trolls, giants, and goblins.
After a plane crash, two opposing half-brothers find themselves on an amazing lost island where enlightened pacifist humans and intelligent talking dinosaurs have created a utopian medieval society. But imminent disaster approaches.
An American spends his holiday in Ireland, where he is introduced to the world of magical creatures like leprechauns and fairies. In a subplot, a forbidden love story blossoms between leprechaun Mickey and fairy Jessica.
All star adaptation of Jonathan Swift's satirical tale about a normal man who, after returning home following eight years of absence, relates fantastical tales about how he was thought to be giant in the Land of Lilliput, but was only six inches high in the Land of Brobdingnag. He also tells of his visit to the floating island of Laputa populated by scientists who are so obsessed with reason that they act with no common sense. Finally, he tells of his journey to the land where his disturbing likeness to the bestial Yahoos and his inferiority to the intelligent horses there makes him question the very worth of his humanity.Written by

I just watched this Gulliver's Travel TV movie aired by our local TV station here. In the beginning, I thought it is just another movie for kids. I was very very wrong there. Indeed, it is a very excellent movie, thought-provoking and brilliantly 'potrayed' by the actors and actresses. Ted Danson at his best!
