Gulliver Mickey is a black and white Mickey Mouse short, produced by Walt Disney and released by United Artists in 1934.

Plot[edit]

Mickey is first seen reading Gulliver's Travels while the mice orphan children are pretending to be sailors. After ruining their game Mickey tries to make it up to them by retelling the Liliput sequences of Gulliver's Travels, pretending it was a real event that happened to him by portraying the role of Gulliver. The story ends with Mickey saving the town from a giant spider (Pete). However after telling the story, one of the children dangles a fake spider attached to a fishing rod, which scares Mickey out of his wits.

Censorship[edit]

While the people of Liliput are searching Mickey's belongings one of the numerous gags featured in this sequence is two men searching a pen (one at the tip of the pen one at the other end). One of them accidentally squirts ink onto the other's face, which causes him to appear in blackface.

Legacy[edit]

This short would later be adapted as part of the Timeless River world in Kingdom Hearts II as a mission where Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy protect the town from the Heartless, led by one attacking from an airplane.
