Bugs in Love (1932)


Directed by Burt Gillett
Story: Earl Duvall
A Silly Symphony Production


Insects have made a playground/carnival out of the cast-offs on a rubbish dump, including "ice skating" on mirrors.

Two love bugs head off to a more private area. But their fun is interrupted when a crow comes by. He bottles up the male bug and chases the female into her home. The male bug escapes in the nick of time and another bug notices the battle and rallies the rest of the bugs to attack, which they do, using false teeth, an eggbeater, a mousetrap, castor oil and other things.

Director: Burt Gillett
Production: Walt Disney Silly Symphony


A nightclub, staffed and frequented entirely by insects. Lighting provided by fireflies, card games dealt by centipedes. The stage show has a good-girl beetle resisting the advances of a bad-boy spider. Everyone dances, even the snails, as the orchestra plays jazz on their instruments made of flowers.
