Arthur et les Minimoys (Arthur And The Minimoys)


This is Archibald Suchot.

A treasure hurhter.

Explorer. Arhd erhgirheer.

He sperht terh years irh Africa

buildirhg every type of useful thirhg.

By the way. It's irh the heart of Africa

that our story begirhs.

Well. This really isrh't Africa. :

It's Corhrhecticut.

Arhd this is the house

that Archibald lived irh

before he mysteriously disappeared.

But that's a story

that Archibald's grarhdsorh

would be more qualified to tell you.

You'll see that he's quite a charmirhg kid

who arhswers to the rhame of...

- Arthur!

- ... Arthur.

Where's he gone to this time?

And the dog's disappeared too.


Oh, yes, you'll see.

He'll be a great guard dog.


I wonder what exactly it is

he'll be guarding.

If you could at least

answer when I call.



Attack! Men, come to my aid!

- Calm down. It's me, Granny.

- Oh, sorry.

I was in Africa.

I can tell. Did you have

a good trip?

Fantastic. I was in a tribe

with Grandpa. Look.

Grandpa painted a canvas

that he placed in a circle.

That way, the animals pace

round and round it, but can't find us.

It's incredible!

It's all the inventions Grandpa made

for the isolated tribe.

Yes, he was more interested in

African tribes than he was his own.

Look, he dug a super-deep well

and invented a whole irrigation system

out of bamboo pods.

You know, it wasn't Grandpa

who invented that.

It was the Romans.

They called them viaducts.

Romans. I never heard of that tribe.

It's a very old tribe.

The leader was called Caesar.

Like the salad?

( laughs )

Yes, like the salad.

Put that book

back where you got it.

We have to go shopping.

Granny, please,

could I drive on the way back?

I don't know, Arthur.

We'll see.

Oh, please.

Grandpa would always--

Grandpa's not here,

and I'm in charge.

- Did he follow you?

- I don't think so.



There. It's all there.

Perfect. This is wonderful.

Thank you so much.

- What do I owe you?

- Are you crazy?

Nothing. Nothing at all.

Now get going before he catches you.

I'm speechless.

Thanks so much.

I'm counting on you

to let me know how it went.

I will.

I'll call you tomorrow.

Oh, Arthur.

Arthur, it's fine.

You go off and play.

Go off while it's still light.


- Thanks, Granny.

- Sure.

Yes! Yes! World champion!


Watch carefully, Alfred.

You are about to witness

the invention of the largest

irrigation system in the county,

bigger than Grandpa's,

better than Caesar's.

This is Arthur's...



By the grace of God...



It's a remarkable invention.

It'll go down in history, believe me!

Arthur, telephone.

You'll have to excuse me.

Probably the President calling

to congratulate me.


T was rhot the Presiderht orh the lirhe.

But. Rather. Arthur's parerhts

callirhg from the city.

He was thrilled to hear their voices.

One of Grandpa's colleagues.

But I followed Grandpa's blueprints,

and it works really well.

I hope you can get here

before nighttime...

How tough times had gorhe

for his family.

- We're still in the city...

- Though he missed them terribly.

Arthur urhderstood that his parerhts

had gorhe to the city to firhd betterjobs.

No, not exactly, dear.

Jobs are really scarce these days...

Although a boy's terhth birthday

is supposed to be a happy time.

The phorhe call made him very sad.

You're a yourhg marh rhow.

Arhd we gotta all make sacrifices...

He listerhed

as they apologized over arhd over agairh

for rhot beirhg able to be with him.
