Enter the world where you're the size of a penny. In the world of bugs your dangers are far different then they are as a human. With something trying to eat you or squish you at every turn, how do you survive. In "A Bugs Life" Flick (Dave Foley) is the outcast of the colony, always trying to find new ways to make their lives a little easier. Tyring to be helpful he also creates mahem throughout the colony. After losing all of the colonies food offering to the evil grasshoppers he's sent away to find warriors that will save them from the grasshoppers. Finding the ideal warriors he proudly returns to only find out that they're circus performers that pretended to be warriors. Not having the courage to tell the colony he digs himself into a bigger hole with more lies and plans to save the colony from the grasshoppers.
