While transporting from world to world, under the control of the Maniacal Scientist, Gulliver discovers fighting aliens, arrogant Horse Leaders of the foolish Yahoos, larger-than-life royalty (in more ways than one) and robots – all who need just as much help from Gulliver as Gulliver needs from them! Watch as this sci-fi spin of the timeless tale of Gulliver's Travels will take you out-of-this world.
