70s Shrinking Kids movie?

I’ve been trying to find the name of a movie about kids being shrunk that I saw at the saturday matinee, it would’ve been mid to late 70s. Much later on when i first heard about Honey I shrunk the kids, i remember thinking: that’s the same plot as the film i saw as a child.

I did a ton of research but haven’t been able to find it. I did find the TV show Dr Shrinker from that period which does have the same scene of shrunk kids running through the grass, but i strongly recall that the kids were shrunk by some kind of chemical they ate, not a shrinking ray. I think it was green.

I’m wondering if it might’ve been a foreign language movie that was dubbed, perhaps Italian. It feels like it was one of those live action Disney titles from the period but i went through the whole back catalogue and didn’t see it.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated, it’s driving me nuts! Thanks.

  1. Karik and Valya’s Remarkable Adventures ( the American name of a Russian film ) but that was 1987, Which if I remember correctly was based off the same book as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids ( i.e. The Extraordinary Adventures of Karik and Valya, only the Disney movie was very very loosely based on the book whereas the Russian film was closer to the book ).

Got something to say?
