Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978

Nick Jr.: Ants, Ants, Ants

1999 Television
Ages: All Ages
Producer: Nickelodeon
This segment teaches us about trying and trying until you get it right. In an anthill that’s on a children’s playground, we see an ant that has found the aluminum tab of a soft drink can. With a little imagination it becomes a hoola-hoop, and with a little practice the ant becomes quite the showman…uhhhhh…showant. When his fellow ants have a bit of trouble getting the hoola-hoop hip action down, the more accomplished ant, with care and gentle encouragement, gets everybody, finally, into the swing. It’s all done without dialogue, but words aren’t necessary. The wonderful animation and jazzy soundtrack make it all work splendidly.
