A misfit ant, looking for "warriors" to save his colony from greedy grasshoppers, recruits a group of bugs that turn out to be an inept circus troupe.
The speechless grasshopper Thumper is named after Thumper from Bambi (1942), who is also one of John Lasseter's favorite characters.
No, no, no, Oh, no. Oh, no.
Ant #1: I'm lost! Where's the line? It just went away. What do I do?
Ant #2: Help!
Ant: We'll be stuck here forever!
Mr. Soil: Do not panic, do not panic. We are trained professionals. Now, stay calm. We are going around the leaf.

The film never explains why the ants must serve and do whatever the grasshoppers want with no mention of them making a deal, or an ant causing a major offense, or anything that is the cause for their devoted and manifest servitude.
During the outtakes Woody from Toy Story (1995) makes a brief cameo appearance with a clapperboard.
