Simple but effective.
22 June 2007 | by (Minnesota, USA) – See all my reviews

Two kids who torture ants find themselves shrunken down to insect size in a great take on the classic story of what goes around comes around.

There's a couple problems. The characters and dialogue are a little childish, at times feeling like an episode of the Magical School Bus. And one of the kids just happens to have a book on ants that he constantly refers to which, to be honest, is a necessary plot device but gets annoying quick. These aside, though, the episode works.

What I really like is that they don't shy away from having the kids face real danger. A key scene involves the kids fighting off a giant spider. Like any person, they've killed insects before, but never a looming thing that stares them in the face while in its death throes. This is rare stuff for Saturday morning fare and I appreciate the honesty. And the little sister imitating her brothers, not realizing it is they, not just random insects, that she is attacking. Brilliant stuff.

All in all, a simple story that benefits from strong execution.
