YMMV: Mr. Bug Goes to Town

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene where Hoppity is electrocuted.
  • Creator Backlash: According to "The Fleischer Story", Max Fleischer considered the film a failure, even compared to Gulliver, and refused to even consider the film one of his achievements when he was interviewed in the 1950's.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The ending, where the musician gets his long belated check for his song, which allows him and his wife to live on top of the newly constructed skyscraper (complete with a garden on top), which Hoppity and co., after all the hell they went through in the film, end up happily residing in at the very end.
  • Cult Classic
  • Ugly Cute: The characters, arguably. As one Fleischer animator named Howard attests:
    "You can draw a bug and make it cute as hell—as cute as a bug's ear, in fact, but i though those characters designs were gruesome. Hoppity has a big, bloated head stuck on a skinny body."
