When Hoppity the Grasshopper returns to Bugville, he finds that all is not well – humans threaten the survival of his town. The residents of Bugville move to a beautiful garden not far away, owned by the kind-hearted songwriters Dick and Mary. Then tragedy strikes and they must return to the lowlands. All can be saved if Dick and Mary can get the money to save their home – but the evil C. Bagley Beetle hatches a destructive and selfish scheme with his bungling henchmen. Can Hoppity save his friends and his girl from the evil Beetle? Max Fleischer’s brilliantly animated movie takes you on a journey inside the amazing world of Bugville – a heartwarming story presented in classic vintage animation that will delight kids and fans of all ages.
In 1947 Max Fleischer created this animated movie of “Bugville.” Times were different and so was animation. This quaint feature film relays the story of the little insects, their community, and the hard times they go through. The bugs’ troubles are caused by humans who unknowingly destroy the little village.
Filled with adventure, comedy, drama and romance all rolled into a single story, this classic tale was appropriate for any age in its time and still is. Many lessons can be taught from this delightful animated cartoon of the ages. I must warn you that very young children might be frightened by a few scenes regarding a fire.
