A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
This is the story of a ten-year-old boy named Lucas Nickle, who has just moved to a new neighborhood, has no friends, and is the target for the local bully and his gang. His parents are leaving for a honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, so they are too busy to attend to his problems.

The part of Mommo, Lucas' grandmother, was originally voiced by Shirley MacLaine. During production, the part was recast with Lily Tomlin in the role, and some Mommo shots had to be re-animated once Mommo's dialogue was re-recorded. Similarly, some of the shots with Fugax had to re-animated when Alan Cumming was replaced with Bruce Campbell. See more »
A glow worm was inside the frog with the beetle and the fly. A glow worm is not like a worm; but rather a species of a beetle. See more »

I think I know why his name is 'Peanut',

Because his brain is the size of a peanut!

'Ant Bully' is another cute animated film with ants. Many might compare it to Dreamworks's 'Antz' and if I'm told to pick one, then 'Ant Bully' is the better one. Of course the story isn't anything new per se but it moves at a steady pace and the characters are very likable. Besides, there's no harm in enjoying some laugh-out-loud moments. For me it was a good 90 minutes spent laughing as I was watching it with my mom and little sister (who enjoyed it too). Voice talents include names like Nicolas Cage, Lily Tomlin, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Paul Giamatti and many more. All of them do fairly well, though Cage appears to sound a little theatrical urban. The animation is brilliant. I especially like how the aunt 'colonization' was created with vibrant colours and attention to detail. Watch out for some cute shorts of the ants. All in all, this is a cute film to enjoy with the family.
