Ten-year-old Arthur, in a bid to save his grandfather's house from being demolished, goes looking for some much-fabled hidden treasure in the land of the Minimoys, tiny people living in harmony with nature.
When being threatened by the Saides for shining the spotlight on the ruby throne instead of Malthazar, Mino, Miro's son, warns, "You won't like it when I get angry". This is a take on The Incredible Hulk (1978), before Dr. Bruce Banner (Bill Bixby) transforms into the Hulk, he warns his instigators by saying, "You won't like me when I'm angry."
This is Archibald Suchot, a treasure hunter, explorer, and engineer. He spent 10 years in Africa building every type of useful thing. Oh, by the way, it's in the heart of Africa that our story begins.
Narrator: Well, this really isn't Africa, it's Connecticut...
(at around 50 mins) When Arthur needs a rope and asks if Betameche would have one, Betameche says that he hasn't got any rope. In the next scene, when Selenia takes Betameche's Swiss army knife to pull down the poppy blossom, his knife has a rope that she uses for a grappling hook.
At the beginning of the end credits, the main actors, actresses, and director come out on screen to take their final bows. If they did a voice in the film, they are presented as the character they voiced in the film. If their role was strictly live action, they are presented as a Minimoy version of their character.
The theatrical release has the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer opening and closing logos, but on home video releases, all MGM references are removed.
