Cartoon Summary:

Seven small boys take a walk in the forest. Johnny, the smallest, decides to go to fight a giant so that it can't eat small children any more! The boys discover the giant's castle, get captured and shrunk to miniature size, and are then imprisoned (Johnny's put in a cage after being reduced to the size of an insect). A thieving magpie seizes the cage and takes it (with Johnny inside) to Insectville. Johnny is ambushed by spiders, but is saved thanks to the intervention of a kingdom of bees who give him refuge. A big celebration takes place in his honor. However, wasps take advantage of the general euphoria to attack. Johnny leads the counterattack and is victorious. Nevertheless, he doesn't forget his friends, who are still the giant's prisoners. Johnny leads an insect invasion of the giant's castle, and the bees help him get his revenge: they thrust their stingers in the giant's body. Johnny falls in the giant's boot. While the latter becomes tiny, our hero returns to his normal size. This time, it's the giant's turn to be confined in the cage.
