Our Famous First for January 2018 is the series premiere of The Adventures of Gulliver.
Set seemingly in more modern times, our story begins with Thomas Gulliver (John Stephenson), son Gary (Jerry Dexter), and their dog, Tagg, on a sailing trip in search of an island that has buried treasure. Captain Leech (Stephenson) wants the treasure for himself, and is pursuing the elder Gulliver to get a map.
As it happens, in the midst of a thunder & lightning storm that runs their ship aground, Thomas sends Gary & Tagg off to safety, entrusting the map to Tagg. Leech comes after the map, but is himself knocked overboard. Of course, you know that Gary & Tagg end up on Lilliput, where the understandable fear of giant visitors upsets King Pomp (Stephenson yet again), but his daughter, Flirtacia (Ginny Tyler, ex-Space Ghost), predictably, has the hots for Gary.
Gary wins them over, and the adventure begins with "Dangerous Journey".
The series turns 50 this year. After a couple of live-action retellings of Jonathan Swift's original tale in the last decade, the last a feature film with Jack Black, would WB or anyone else want to chance bringing this back?
