The Kid Should See This

Minuscule, French-made animations about the lives of insects

Minuscule – Compilation #1 features four shorts from Minuscule, a delightful French-made series written and directed by Hélène Giraud and Thomas Szabo. Minuscule is about the private lives of ants, snails, bees, caterpillars, wasps, spiders and other tiny creatures, all told without any speaking at all.

This video shares four stories: Beehive on a Troll, Away All Borders, Ants on the Train, and Go, Blue, Go!
