Ants in the Plants (film #8 on Disc #12 of 100 Cartoon Classics DVD Megapack (Treeline Films, 2004). Also, film #8 on Disc #3 of 150 Cartoon Classics DVD Megapack (Mill Creek Entertainment, 2006)). [Category: Hollywood]

This Dave Fleischer toon is a typical little-guys-against-the-big-bad-guy toon. In this case, a highly organized ant society battles a big stupid anteater. Unfortunately, the anteater has superior weapons technology in the form of an eyedropper, but the ants have a secret weapon in the form of their potential to make one itch. This is pretty much what you’d expect, but the 3-D forest backgrounds are beautiful.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
