** Is Maggie really an unreasonably selfish, boastfal {{Jerkass}}, or are her rude ways a retaliation against Aldrin--who is rather boastful about his popularity as his football team's athlete--being a braggadocios BigBrotherBully to her?
** Does the amount of effort Aldrin took to achieve his goals give him a reason to brag to his unsuccessful sister who cuts corners, or is he only trying to succeed in an attempt to belittle Maggie and remind her of what she doesn't have (which leads her to cut corners to become an even more successful person than Aldrin)?

** Is Maggie really an unreasonably selfish, boastfal {{Jerkass}}, boastful {{Jerkass}} [[AssholeVictim who deserves all the bad things that happen to her]], or are her rude ways is she a [[TheWoobie sympathetic]] ButtMonkey whose rudeness is a retaliation against Aldrin--who the world conspiring against her? What makes this curious is rather boastful that in some episodes, she's shown as a normal, civilized person just wanting to have a good day, while in others she's a selfish, pompous bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else.
** Does Aldrin brag
about his popularity success as his football team's athlete--being a braggadocios BigBrotherBully to her?
** Does the amount of effort Aldrin took to achieve his goals give him a reason to brag to his unsuccessful sister who cuts corners, or is he only
an athlete simply because he's an [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]] trying to succeed in an attempt to belittle Maggie and remind her Maggie, or does he do it as a retaliation against Maggie's [[LoopholeAbuse loophole-abusing]] methods of what she doesn't have (which leads her becoming famous herself? It's made more curious by the fact that Aldrin actually worked really hard to cut get where he is now, rather than cutting corners to become an even more successful person than Aldrin)?like Maggie does.



** Some fans (mainly girls) can relate to Maggie in the case of having dreams to become famous that are often sabatoged by school, friends, and family, getting blamed for others' faults, having AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents, a BigBrotherBully, and AnnoyingYoungerSibling, and her typical "gal pal" activities. On the hand, though, she's viewed a [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]], [[ManipulativeBitch manipulative]], [[ApatheticCitizens apathetic]] {{Jerkass}} who [[LoopholeAbuse loopholes all her obstacles]] and [[AssholeVictim deserves all the]] [[LaserGuidedKarma bad things that happen to her]].

* MisaimedMarketing: {{Downplayed|Trope}}. The show is aimed at pre-teen girls and showcases that through having one as TheProtagonist who is a stereotypical GirlyGirl, but in general centers around the lives of house flies living in a dump and [[GrossOutShow uses some occasional gross-out elements]], which are [[JustifiedTrope justified]] due to them being flies.

* {{Moe}}:{{Moe}}: For a show about bugs, the animators really know how to [[UglyCute make them look cute]].



** Rayna is one of the BlackAndNerdy variety.
** Maria Monarch, both before and after her makeover.



** Aldrin at least has a potential FreudianExcuse when you see how his Uncle views him as DumbMuscle while lavishing praise on Maggie (and later Pupert) simply for being younger and cuter.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: The ending of "The Hangout" suggests that boys and girls don't deserve privacy from each other, as Maggie's mother makes her and her friends share a treehouse as the hangout space with Aldrin, Pupert, and their respective friends. The opposite genders ''do'' often need isolation from each other, for each have differing interests and personal gender-exclusive problems that are best addressed between the same genders.

* TheWoobie: Pupert whenever he's belittled by his older siblings or is the ButtMonkey. Due to being TheBabyOfTheBunch, he has a reason to be spoiled since he probably doesn't know any better. It becomes a plot device of the episode "Funball", where he is used as a basketball by Aldrin, and thus he gets physical pain inflicted upon him.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Aldrin in Le Termite exposes Maggie's lies, getting her in trouble with her boss. When asked why he did it, Aldrin points out that he works hard at his BurgerFool job and earned his family's praise while Maggie lied to make herself look better than him.
** He also has a point in Training Day- Maggie did nothing to earn her scooter, relying on Aldrin's athleticism to net her the prize. (And she belittles his skills as being "easy for him" and implies all he has to do to win is show up and "do his little running thing.") While it was wrong of Aldrin to fake an injury, Maggie had already agreed to do his chores for him anyway and by doing the work she should have more appreciation for Aldrin's efforts. Of course, when Aldrin points out that he did what he did to teach her a lesson, she decides that she doesn't like the lesson, and refuses to learn a thing.
