-Bug Bites: An Ant's Life tagline
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 Spark Plug Entertainment and Michael Schelp. It is criticized for being a rip-off of A Bug's Life and Antz. It waa released in 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.
