Flik: Welcome to our show! You know, we've been doing this act for over three hundred million years. And with bugs making up more than 80% of the animal world, we're the biggest cast of them all. Still, you guys just don't seem to see us so that's why we gave you those special bug eyes. Go ahead, put them on. Neat, huh? So, on with the show.

User Reviews

Only if you're a big fan of the movie.
14 May 2006 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

This 3-D show is pretty good to see. Has the same character designs and look from the 1998 Hit "A Bug's Life". It doesn't follow the movie but it does have the same dude who portrayed Hopper and Flick.

The whole show is done in Computer animation just like the movie it self.

Flick is your host, who'll show you that it's tough to be a bug.

Throughout the show you get to see Stinkbugs, Spiders, Hornets, and a giant Chameleon.

You're able to see this show at Disney's California Adventure or Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Just to let you know that it might frighten the little kids due to a part where it look like your getting stung by hornets.
