''The Buzz on Maggie'' (2005-2006) was a [[ShortRunners short-lived]] [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash Flash]] animated series that aired on the Disney Channel, aimed for tween girls, about talking flies and other insects living in the city of Stickyfeet (yes, that's the name). Created by Dave Polsky, the show centered on Maggie Pesky, an energetic pink-haired fly girl who loves music, fashion, hanging with her gal pal Rayna and pretty much everything else typical tween girls like. The series came with an upbeat theme song performed by Skye Sweetnam.

!!Contains examples of:
* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: Lampshaded in "Pieface" after Pupert's friends go after Maggie in a helicopter.
-->"No wonder they cut our arts program. The defense budget's through the roof!"
%%* AlphaBitch: Dawn, Maggie's arch-nemesis.
* AmbiguousDisorder:
** Maria Monarch ticks off a lot of boxes for UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome: she's generally very quiet and introverted, doesn't care much about her appearance (at least before [[SheCleansUpNicely her makeover]]), has strange vocal patterns, isn't good at speaking publicly, is clumsy and awkward, has [[SensoryOverload sensitive hearing]], behaves dramatically when under pressure, and tends to shake or jump when excited. However, we never see any of her obsessions, which is a major part of what defines Asperger's, although this could be because Aspie girls' interests generally aren't quite as unusual as those of their male counterparts. [[note]]Usually, girls with Asperger's have "typical" girly interests, such as horses, classical literature or keeping things neat and tidy, while boys will have more "nerdy" interests, such as geography, anatomy, zoology, palaeontology, science fiction etc. There are exceptions to the rule, of course, but this is more of a general rule of thumb. [[/note]]
** In "Sick Days, Inc.", Maggie and Rayna's first customer appears to have Down Syndrome. Needless to say, the joke that he doesn't get basic maths [[ValuesDissonance would not]] [[IncrediblyLamePun "fly"]] [[ValuesDissonance today]].
%%* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Pupert Pesky and sometimes Bella.
%%** Aldrin views Maggie as one.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Maggie and Aldrin do clash a lot, but deep down, they love each other.
* BeautifulAllAlong: Maria Monarch in "The Candidate". Even before the makeover she appears stunningly beautiful after taking off her glasses. Her acne clears up and even her hairstyle changes.
%%* BigBrotherBully: Aldrin
* BigBrotherInstinct: Aldrin, but only to Bella. He is noticably upset when he hears Maggie left her at the carnival, that she "could be anywhere by now!" and is the only sibling who wins his game when the Pesky family compete for the right to keep Bella. She is also the only sibling he never, ever teases.
%%* BlackAndNerdy: Rayna
%%* BlackBestFriend: Rayna
* BrokenAesop: At the end of "The Candidate" Maggie gives a speech about how you shouldn't judge people by their appearance, but Maria wouldn't have a boyfriend if it wasn't for her makeover and she never goes back to looking the way she did before.
* BuffySpeak: Maggie was fond of adding 'tacious' to certain words to make new ones. This was most frequently done with 'fan-tacious' (as a stand-in for fantastic) but there were other examples.

* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: Rayna in kindergarten in a flashback.

* FurryConfusion: There's one kid at Buzzdale that looks more like a real fly.

** In "Honey Stripers", Maggie talks about getting a band member to sign her thorax. That is, the insect equivalent of her chest.
** In "Best Best Friends", Maggie tries to bribe a boy to become her friend, referring to the cash as her "boys". This could possibly be a reference to "girls", a slang term for breasts.
** In "Scout of Order", when Brad notices Maggie for the first time, his antennae stand on end. 'Nuff said.
** Also, in "Faking History", Maggie gives us this little gem: [[ItMakesSenseInContext "Hands off my booty!"]]

* KidsShouldntWatchHorrorFilms: Maggie and Rayna sneak into a scary R-rated movie. Rayna ends up so traumatized she'd rather watch the baby movie that's playing on another screen. Maggie plays it cool at first, but eventually starts hallucinating the movie's monster everywhere until she confesses to her parents. They decide her trauma from watching the movie was punishment enough.

One episode reveals that his Uncle views him only as free labor on the farm, and that he has consistently been ignored in favor of his younger, cuter siblings during family vacations there (first Maggie, then Pupert is given the "Favorite Hat" to signify their status above him). He never even fights this until Maggie starts receiving the same treatment and he helps her rebel. Even then, Maggie takes all the credit for their scheme in order to shove him back into the background. At least he's still a Big Shot on Campus.
