Gulliver's Travels (also known as Gulliver's Travels: Adventures In Lilliput) is an American animated television series developed by Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust, based off the 1939 Paramount/Fleischer feature film of the same name. The show was produced by Paramount Television Animation, in association with NTA/Republic Pictures and Fleischer Studios. The show premiered April 1, 2017 on Nickelodeon.
The show follows exactly the same as in the 1985 original, but with redesigned characters and background settings.
It mainly focuses on the Lilliputians and Blefascunians, most notably the Lilliput town crier Gabby. Gulliver himself is only shown in flashbacks. Events after the original film, both David and Glory have been officially married after combining 'Faithful' and 'Forever' as one song together at their wedding.
Most of the characters have returned from the original 1985 series, with a few new ones created for the reboot.

- King Little (voiced by Tom Kenny) - TBA.
- King Bombo (voiced by Jeffrey Tambor) - TBA.

While Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust became the main writers for the reboot, the series also returned the original characterizations of the characters from the 1939 feature film.
