violence
There is some very mild violence, such as when the hero is beaten by an evil grasshopper. However, he recovers quickly and gets his own back. One of the villainous characters is fed to a bird chick.
threat and horror
There are some mild scary scenes, such as when grasshoppers intimidate the ants and when a bird chases the bugs. However, these moments are fairly brief and broken up with comic moments.
language
There is some comic use of very mild bad language, including 'move you ass' and a comic reference to a lightning bug turning off the light in his rear end ("Turn your butt off").
Contains mild language and very mild threat
