What do you remember about the show?

By bike do you mean motor or pedal?

I wonder if it's some sort of Kamen Rider parody

By pedal. Again, it FELT like it was set in either the late 1800s and early 1900s judging by the fashion.

Been searching around a bit and the closest I can find is Thumbelina: A Magical Story. It seems to have a few bug characters that fit the description. There is both a movie and a television series, and they came out in the early 90's. Another possibility, but maybe less likely, is Cricket on the Hearth (1967). Both are on youtube. If it's neither of those, I recommend looking into any of the other millon Thumbelina movies (almost all have anthropomorphic crickets). The only thing I found involving both crickets and bicycles is "I'm No Fool With a Bicycle"(1955), where Jiminy Cricket talks about bike safety. I hope this helps.

Hello Italiaandnostalgia. I have seen Thumbelina: A Magical Story (I grew up with it, so glad to know someone else knows about it to) but NO, it has NOTHING to do with it. If I can make this any easier, the Grasshopper/Cricket Character - again - is just a human with SOME cricket parts. Unless my memory is bad, I remember him looking like Lupid the 3rd with ORANGE HAIR and glasses. Does that make things easier?

Around what year did you see the movie?

Also, do you remember any plot points or the genre?

It was around 2005 when I saw it. I remember that year vividly because someone fell on my head HARD, cracked it open, and had to get stitches (long story). It wasn't a movie. Again, it looked like an episode of a TV Show, and I believe they were delivering maybe a book or some kind of MacGuffin, being chased by a shadowy organization, and at one point they fight back. Mind you I was 9 when I saw this (I'm 23) so maybe this is a Mandela Effect where I'm remembering things wrong, but you asked for any plot points, and this is the best I could do. Also, even though it clearly had SOME kind of conflict, it kind of reminded me of lighthearted 90's Slice of Life shows like Little Bear; it had a comforting aesthetic with soft watercolour backgrounds and soothing music.

Hope that helps to whoever reads this, be it Italiaandnostalgia or someone else.
