Released in America by Lippert, Johnny the Giant Killer is a feature-length animated cartoon, produced in France by Jean Image Films. The titular hero leads his young companions to the castle of a fearsome giant. Intending to slay the huge antagonist, Johnny ends up the giant's prisoner. He and his buddies are magically miniaturized, leading to no end of hair-raising adventures. With the help of a friendly bird, Johnny is able to briefly escape his plight, only to fall into the clutches of a spider. He is then rescued by an amorous queen bee and so it goes, for 70 minutes (or 60 minutes, depending upon which print one sees).
