The Adventures of Gulliver is an animated American television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for ABC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1968 to 1969, airing 17 episodes that spanned one season.

The series is loosely based on the 1726 novel, Gulliver's Travels.

The series follows the ever lasting adventures of a young man named Gary Gulliver, and his dog Tagg after ending up shipwrecked and on an island that is also the kingdom of Lilliput, which inhabits small people-like creatures called lilliputians, who Gulliver befriends. Some recurring elements include Gulliver trying to find his long-lost father, who is also believed to have ended up on the island, and the main antagonist Captain John Leech attempting to get a treasure map from Gulliver.




The music was composed by Ted Nichols.
