Johnny in the Valley of the Giants(1973)
(French: JoÃƒÂ« chez les Abeilles / JoÃƒÂ« petit boum-boum) was an animated television series first produced between 1960 to 1963 and later remade into an animated feature film in 1973 (the English title for the film was Johnny in the Valley of the Giants).
The show and the film were created by Jean Image, one of the leading French animators of his time.
In the 60-minute-long film, a group of boys encounter a spooky castle during a camping trip. The boys discover a very large man living there. The man traps the boys in a shrinking machine and reduces them to the size of flies. One boy, Joe, escapes and has an adventure in a beehive. When he gallantly saves the hive, the Queen Bee, Reine Fleur de Miel 145 (Queen Honey Flower 145) knights him. Eventually, they organize the bees and other woodland animals to attack the castle and rescue (and restore) his trapped friends.
