Movie Info

Two years after the release of Gulliver's Travels, the Fleischer brothers produced Hoppity Goes to Town, their second feature-length cartoon. The film is based in Bugtown, an insect community, and the insects that populate the picture are a sort of melting pot of the bug world. There is Hoppity the grasshopper, who is the dreamer of the bunch; Mr. Bumble the bee, who operates the honey shop, and his daughter Honey Bee, who loves Hoppity; C. Bagley Beetle, the ruthless businessman who plots

A bizarre mess that fails at every imaginable level.

Pleasant animated feature, but not up to the Fleischers' best.

Audience Reviews for Bugville

The animation even gives early Disney a run for it's money and still stands up today. Hoppity is a bug who returns from some nondescript adventure/locale, perhaps he was fighting in the great bug wars, I dunno. Bring on a prequel. Anyway he returns and immediately attempts to get laid. Can't blame him since Honey Bumble is super fit. The rest of the plot plays out as the humans desecrate the land and our buggy friends attempt to find a new place to live. Some sweet songs, nice characters and one of the most racist things I've ever seen in a film involving rice and a Chinese impersonation, which is so innocent and out of the blue I was in stitches for hours. It's a very good, if under-appreciated film. Apparently some small conflict affected it's cinema release but hey, catch it now.
