Bee: Oh dear me! You look like you're really in trouble.
Fred: All my life I've been hauling flowersacks - thousands! Day in and day out - and now this? I don't even want to think about it.
Bee: Maybe I can help? Pull yourself together, all right?
Fred: You're the one to talk - what do you know? You can just buzz off when things get rough.

Excellent! One of the best animated movies I've ever seen! I've only seen the french version, but I'm sure the English and German version is great too! If it was possible, then I'll vote it 100! That looks like a Disney movie, but it's still so cool and I keep watching and watching it over and over again and I never get bored! I hope they'll make a sequel to it, because it's worth of it! But at the ending, I didn't understand if the bad guys were killed in the explosion, or were they saved? That could be a cool sequel idea where the bad guys come back and try to revenge! Who's your favorite character? I like the cat! And the voice actors are excellent! I recommend it to everybody! Bye!
