The protagonist is a worker ant named Z 4195-- simply known as "Z" (voiced by Creator/WoodyAllen). He is somewhat neurotic and maladjusted to life in an ant colony, where each individual is treated as an insignificant part of a greater society. One day, he hears a drunk veteran soldier ant rant about some place called Insectopia, where food is plentiful, there are no rules, and everyone lives in peace. Z and his soldier friend Weaver (Creator/SylvesterStallone) snicker at the old ant behind his back and think the idea of an "Insectopia" is hilarious.

Meanwhile, the lovely Princess Bala (voiced by Creator/SharonStone) is living in the palace, but finds it dull and does not happily anticipate her upcoming marriage to General Mandible (voiced by Creator/GeneHackman), or the idea of giving birth every ten seconds as Queen. She drags two ladies-in-waiting down to the workers' bar, where she dances with Z, who falls for her instantly. Z soon realizes however that he'll never see her again, so he convinces his friend Weaver to switch places with him for a day, just to see Princess Bala at a royal inspection, while Weaver gets to interact with some of the worker girls.

When Z meets the Queen (voiced by Creator/AnneBancroft) and Bala again, she recognises him as the worker from the bar, unknowingly blowing his cover. Mandible is furious that a worker danced with his fiancée, and the nervous Z hides behind Bala, but it is assumed that he is taking her hostage. She beats him off quite easily, but in doing so they fall down a garbage chute.

* GaussianGirl: PlayedForLaughs during Z and Bala's romantic moment at Insectopia; Bala's face is blurred as Z goes in for a kiss, before he is rudely interrupted by the other insects around the fire.

** Cutter is depicted as having wings. In an actual ant colony, the only winged ants are the princess and one or more rather wasp-like drones. When the time comes to establish a new colony, the princess takes flight accompanied by her flying drones. It would make more sense for Mandible to have wings, given he's the princess' fiance.

Meanwhile, Weaver, who has fallen for the career girl (and Z's work friend) Azteca (voiced by Creator/JenniferLopez), feels terrible about switching places, even though he too had no idea the army was about to go to war.
