Animanimals: Ant

This team of leafcutter ants seems to be working well together, staying in step and following orders. But one ant is marching, bouncing, floating, and playing to its own beat. Can this team have fun and get the job done at the same time? From the animated Animanimals series by writer/director Julia Ocker and Studio Film Bilder, this is Ant.

Next, watch Whistleless, Avocado Man, The Scaredy Swan, Acorn, The Bear Who Never Breaks the Rules, and The Goat Herder and his Lots and Lots and Lots of Goats. Also: Why do Leafcutter Ants cut leaves and carry them away?
