Public Domain Theater: Gulliver’s Travels (& “Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor”)

Welcome to Public Domain Theater, your home for the wonderful world of films that have (in the United States, at least) fallen into the public domain, and are free for everyone to see!

Today we present to you one of the earliest feature length animated films, created by Fleischer Studios in response to the success of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Based on the satirical novel by Jonathan Swift, it’s Gulliver’s Travels!

And for our opening cartoon, we have another Fleischer produced adaptation of a famous literary sailor, this time crossing paths with a certain other sailor the Fleischer Brothers were fond of. Prepare yourself for a crossover so epic, I’m sure it’ll make everyone forget all about Avengers: Endgame, it’s “Popeye the Sailor Meets Sindbad the Sailor”!

So hoist the sail, man the mizzenmast, sit back, and enjoy!
