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.

That poor bird!
7 July 2018 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a predictable cartoon where a bunch of bugs attack a bird after it attempts to eat a bug couple. I thought the attacks were overkill on the poor bird - it never had a chance to defend itself and ended up drinking a bunch of castor oil.

Ruthless bugs, predictable plot, and a typical animal vs. animal story.
