Storyline

Insects have made a playground/carnival out of castoffs, featuring "ice skating" on mirrors. Two love bugs head off to a more private area. But their fun is interrupted when a crow comes by. He bottles up the male bug and chases the female into her home. The male bug escapes in the nick of time, and another bug notices the battle and rallies the rest of the bugs to attack, which they do, using false teeth, an eggbeater, a mousetrap, castor oil, and other things.

The Spider and the Fly but with bugs and a crow
22 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of the Disney Silly Symphonies. While Bugs in Love is not one of the finest of the series, it is very good regardless. While not making the mistake of being routine or predictable, Bugs in Love is not very original story-wise. If anything, there is definitely an influence on the superior Silly Symphony The Spider and the Fly, except with bugs instead of flies and a crow instead of a spider for the menace. I also felt that the battle between the bugs and the crow underwhelmed me a bit, it is certainly not bad, just that it lacks intensity here. However, the animation is really beautifully done, always crisp and interesting to look at with the characters well drawn(a vast improvement on the most recent cartoon I saw The Bird Store). The music has much character and energy like a cartoon should do and the gags are always sweet and entertaining. But other than the animation, I found the characters to be the strongest asset of Bugs in Love. I did like that in defeating the crow it was sort of a work-together rather than the male bug dominating like in other cartoons I've seen, and you really feel the affection and personalities of the male and female bugs even without either of them saying a word. The crow is a great villain, you do recognise straight-away that he is the villain of the piece, but it didn't feel overly-obvious. The ending resolves things very nicely, very emotional and consistent with what has happened before it. Overall, I was satisfied. 8/10 Bethany Cox
