Movie Details

With each episode of the Bug City video series, children aged one to six are introduced to the diverse world of one insect species or a group of related species. With the help of hand puppet Bugsy Seagull; Dr. Art Evans, director of the Insect Zoo for Los Angeles' Museum of Natural History; and film star Christina Ricci, the habits, diets, adaptations, and life cycles of our creepy crawly neighbors are revealed in sharp detail. Employing the latest advances in microscopic photography, each episode magnifies the day-to-day lives of these amazing creatures, revealing secrets it would be difficult to learn otherwise. Also included are tips for safely handling insects and techniques for creating habitats for the various species examined. Bug City: Really Gross Bug Stuff examines some of the most distasteful aspects of the behavior of bugs. From maggots feeding on dead animals to wasp larvae eating their caterpillar host from the inside out to the infamous dung beetle dining on its favorite food, this episode captures the stomach-turning habits of insects. ~ Sean Hurley, Rovi
