Is It Any Good?

By today's standards, both the animation and the plotting of Young Gulliver are pretty lame. Characters are wooden and two-dimensional, and there's no real back story or sense of growth or relationships. It's classic three-commercial-break fare: The set up, the chase, the rescue/escape, the brief humorous moment followed by all of the characters laughing merrily together before the credits roll.

That said, young kids will accept the simplicity of it all, and for some it could be a welcome break from some of today's frenetic cartoons. Still, when all is said and done, Young Gulliver is devoid of any educational, social, or emotional value, making it nothing but a couch potato moment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
