The "novelty" was based largely on the results of the " Rotoscope ", invented by Fleischer to produce realistic animation. InThe Bray Studio ran afoul with legal issues, having contracted for more films than it could deliver to its distributor, The Goldwyn Company.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs had had just one nomination for its score at the tenth ceremony, but was then given an honorary award at the eleventh. The pressure was on. Yet more troublesome than any plot or casting details was the intense, eighteen-month schedule that the filmmakers were working to, made worse by the fact that the studio was then in the process of relocating to Miami in Florida.
Why not just treat the artists fairly instead of hustling them off to some place where the laws are laxer? At times, the pressure to deliver the film on time took its toll on the team, with everybody having to put in a lot of overtime to get it done. As was the usual practice at the time, each individual sequence of the film had its own director.
Pencil tests were then unheard of in New York studios, but while some animators struggled to adapt to this new way of doing things, they soon embraced the changes for the increased efficiency they allowed. For Gulliver in particular, live-action reference footage was shot of his voice actor, Sam Parker, to aid the animators in their work.
In addition to Parker as Gulliver, we also have the wonderful Pinto Colvig — a Disney stalwart — as Gabby, easily one of the most famous names here. Unfortunately, all four of them are rather wasted, particularly Howard and Warren, as these two characters are given very little to do.
On the music side, we have a collection of pretty, if rather sentimental little songs written by a total of five different songwriters rather surprising, given how simple they all are. They are as follows: The animation is perhaps the weakest aspect, which is unsurprising given the tight deadline it was forced to comply with.
Every character is either a heavily-rotoscoped cardboard cut-out so unnerving that they often slip into the Uncanny Valley especially Gulliver… brrror a noodle-armed slapstick-prone caricature more typically seen in animated shorts of the day. The comic, cartoony characters like Gabby and the two kings are handled with infinitely more confidence than Gulliver himself, and certainly more so than the utterly dull prince and princess.
I also loved the two wacky kings, who are hilarious in their exaggerated politeness to one another at the start and have distinct personalities that make them hugely entertaining to watch.
And to be fair, he is equally boring. Plot-wise, he helps to resolve the dispute about the wedding songs by mushing them both together, after which he leaves — it seems that once the physically gaggery of his size was exhausted, there was nothing else to be done with him.
Against all the odds, the film was completed on time and made its debut on December 18th, at the Sheridan Theatre in Miami Beach due to the convenient location. It then had a trade-showing premiere in New York City two days later, followed by its national release by Paramount on the 22nd.
Walt Disney saw it, undoubtedly checking out the competition, and apparently made this catty comment: Although the film had gone over budget, Paramount still managed to make a profit of around a million dollars domestically and this at the tail-end of the Depressioneven with the film limited to just fifty theatres in its original Christmas run.
Thanks to this success, they ordered a second film from Fleischer Studios, which would become the Christmas release Mr. Bug Goes to Town. Eventually, the Fleischer Studios were fully absorbed into Paramount and their film library was sold to television in It was fascinating for me to take a peek into this long-ago era of animation and see what the rare non-Disney output of the day was like.
