Special Delivery - Gulliver's Travels - Update

My apologies, I meant to post this yesterday but time got away from me.

Gulliver's Travels

I would like to extend a very special thank you to Christopher Sobieniak for sending me the correct link to this Classic Nickelodeon Special Delivery.  

Gulliver's Travels 1977 

Mix of live action and animation, telling Jonathan Swift's classic story., with Richard Harris in the lead role of Lemuel Gulliver.


  1. Although you bring up the familiar Max Fleischer version most of us would know by heart, I remember Nickelodeon playing this instead, which was a British-Belgian co-production from the 70's.

  2. Actually all I have are the titles not the dates so I just found what I could but thank you SOOO much for posting this for me so that I will have the correct link for next year. I’m going to change it over right now. I have a whole list of titles but could find very little of them to post so any and all help the fans can give me is very much appreciated.

    1. Glad to help out here. It wasn't until years later I came across a tape of it at a video store and saw it was the same version I saw as a kid because I remember it ending this way with Gulliver being stuck in a new situation that ends without resolving that plot.

      Another movie I recall Nick airing (I think it was them) that also used live-action combined with animation was "The Water Babies".

    2. Oh yes, Water Babies was a Special Delivery and that will be coming up eventually. The way I'm posting these is that I post them in alphabetical order and I've added a few extra shows in there just b/c I can. I can't tell you exactly which month it will be airing b/c if I keep posting every second and forth Sunday at this rate Water Babies won't be up until next January. But my b-day is in June so I may post every Sunday so I'll have to see.

    3. That's OK. I guess you already covered the "A's" already (thought of "Abra Cadabra" just now, such a forgotten film). Since it'll take you a while to get to the "R's", might I suggest "Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure"?

    4. I have a list of as many shows as I could find from old TV guides however if it was shown after '86 it was after my time so I wouldn't have added it to my list.And yes I am planning to show Raggedy Ann & Andy Musical Adventure, it should be coming up in July.
