Bug Bites: An Ant's Life is a 3D animated movie made in 1998. It was the first 3D mockbuster and also the first made by Michael Schelp. It is criticized for capitalizing on A Bug's Life and Antz due to its title. It was released on VHS in 1998 and later re-released on DVD in 2006.

The original 1998 VHS version of this movie had the 1971 Aesop's Fables special as filler. This was replaced on the 2006 DVD with four additional public domain cartoons for the same reason. The cartoons that were included are Doggone Tired, To Spring, Teacher's Pest, and Farm Frolics.
