WELCOME TO BUGTROPOLIS
(Opens to a human house in a cul-de-sac.)
Announcer on TV: Are YOU tired of constantly having to reach for the TV remote? Well say hello to the AUTO TELEPORT-REMOTE-TO-ME-THING!
(cuts to a fat ant sitting in an ant farm watching the television while eating a leaf.)
(Antonio walks over to the fat ant and stares at him for a few seconds, then stares at the TV.)
(The fat ant looks at Antonio then looks back at the TV.)
Antonio: Is this REALLY how you want to spend your life? Just sitting behind a screen LOOKING at a screen? Don’t you think that maybe there’s more in this world? Like….like..that! *points to the TV screen, which is showing a decent looking nature documentary*
Fat Ant: Eh…
Antonio: We could be out there…in the outside world…where things are better. Think about it, we could do anything we want, see the sights! Smell the smells! TASTE THE-
Ant #1: Hey! Shut up already! Some of us have absolutely NOTHING to do tomorrow!
Ant #2: Yeah, give it up already Antonio!
Scottish Ant: Oi! Shut your yap you bamstick bauchle before I shut it for you!
(Antonio sighs, then walks away)
Antonio: Fine, guess I’ll just go back to living my life of misery.
(As Antonio is waking back to his tunnel, he is stopped by Dr. Gaster, the ant farm’s smartest yet craziest ant. He also considers himself a scientist.)
Dr. Gaster: Hey! Antooooonio!
(Antonio turns around)
Antonio: Oh…Dr. Gaster. What’s up?
Dr. Gaster: Antonio! I have something to show you! Follow me boy!
(Dr. Gaster takes Antonio to his lab, and leads him to something under a dust cover.)
Dr. Gaster: Say hello….to my newest invention…
Antonio: It’s…a peanut. Uhhh….Doctor? You DO know that you didn’t invent the peanut?
Dr. Gaster: Silly boy! It may LOOK like a peanut….but inside the shell is stiny stinkiness of STINKINESS!
Antonio: So….it’s like a stink bomb?
Dr. Gaster: EXACTLY!
Antonio: yeah….you didn’t exactly invent the stink bomb either you know…
Dr. Gaster: Come on…can you just give me this?...please? I worked hard.
Antonio: Fine, fine. *gasp* OH MY GOSH A STINK PEANUT WHATEVER WILL YOU USE IT FOR?
Dr. Gaster: Glad you asked, son. I’m going to use it on that FURRY FELINE DEMON!
Dr. Gaster: HIM! *points at the human boy’s pet cat, who is watching the them right outside the ant farm*
Antonio: You mean Fluffles?....the cat, doctor?
Dr. Gaster: Yes! That cat is ALWAYS disturbing the ants! This stink bomb peanut will stop him from EVER doing that again! As soon as the human child opens up the ant farm to feed us, I will use my catapult to launch stink peanut up above so it can land on the cat, causing it to-
Antonio: Uhhh….yeah. Go ahead I mean, the cat never bothered me so..
Child’s mother: JOHNNY!!! HAVE YOU FED YOUR ANTS TODAY?!
Johnny: Oh, I’ll do it right now mom! *runs to his bedroom*
Dr. Gaster: NOW! IT’S TIME!
Dr. Gaster: HURRY UP BOY, GRAB MY CATAPULT! IT’S NOW OR NEVER!
Antonio: I doubt this will be the last time he feeds us, but fine…
the boy opens the ant farm, and the cat jumps onto the table where the ant farm rests.*
Dr. Gaster runs over to the catapult, and places the stink peanut on it.*
Dr. Gaster: Wait for it….wait for it…
(Antonio is reading a magazine, completely uninterested in what is going on.)
Dr. Gaster: NOW! *launches the stink peanut*
(we see the stink peanut being launched out of the ant farm in slow motion.)
Peanut misses the cat*
Dr. Gaster: DANG IT!
peanut lands on the floor, it breaks open and a stink cloud immediately fills the entire room*
(Johnny screams, and Fluffles freaks out.)
(mother hears Johnny screaming)
Mother: WHAT IS GOING ON IN HERE?! UGH, WHAT IS THAT SMELL?!?! *opens up the window that is right next to the ant farm*
(Fluffles is still freaking out, he runs right into the ant farm, knocking it outside the window.)
Antonio: What the-
ant farm falls on a large rock outside and breaks, all the ants fall out.*
Antonio is picking himself up off the ground.*
Antonio: What….just happened?
cuts to theme song*
Dr. Gaster: HA HA! YES! WE DID IT!
Antonio: yeah, great….just one problem…
Dr. Gaster: What’s that, boy?
Antonio: WE WERE PUSHED OUT THE WINDOW!
(all the ants scream)
Antonio: Okay okay, Everyone calm down! We’ll get back….wait a minute *looks around*…..this is….THIS IS PERFECT!
(ants stare at him confused.)
Antonio: THIS IS JUST WHAT WE NEED! EVERYONE GO, BE FREE!
(Antonio runs away, the ants just looks at each other awkwardly.)
Antonio: (running)YES! THIS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
(3 hours later)
Antonio: (walking slowly)Wish….I stayed….home… so tired….so hungry….so…so…
(a grasshopper with a large backpack walks by.)
Antonio: Hey, buddy! Ya got anything to eat…?
(grasshopper ignores him, continues walking.)
Antonio: Hey! I’m talking to you!
(grasshopper ignores him, again.)
Antonio: Dude, hey! *runs over to the grasshopper*
Grasshopper: Can’t talk right now, gotta deliver a package to a friend in Bugtropolis….
Grasshopper: Yeah, it’s a real nice little city.
Antonio: Mind taking me there?
Grasshopper: Fine, but keep up. This package has to arrive in a few minutes or I’m squashed.
Antonio: Eesh…they sure have strict way of doing things.
Grasshopper: Nah, it’s just that I screw up a lot.
Antonio: Oh…well. Okay then. Hey, mind if I help you out with that backpack? It looks pretty heavy. Ya know, ants can lift 50 times their own body weight! *reaches for the backpack*
Grasshopper: *slaps Antonio’s hand* Hey! Hands off!
Antonio: Alright, sorry. Jeez….so are you like a traveling merchant….or a tourist…or some kind of delivery bug?
Grasshopper: You sure ask a lot of questions…
Antonio: Well I…
Grasshopper: Oh hey! We’re here! You can leave me alone now bye! *jumps away*
(Antonio walks forward, and sees a sign that reads “Welcome to Bugtropolis”
Antonio: hmmm…Bugtropolis…*Antonio continues walking and sees the city.*
Antonio: Wowww…nice place!
(Latie the lady bug and Krikkett the cricket run by)
Krikkett (to Latie): Hey! Wait up haha!
Antonio: Well…this looks like a nice place. Yes, some of these bugs look friendly indeed.
(Antonio looks up and sees a bee flying right towards him)
Phoebee: LOOK OUT!!!
Antonio: AAAAAAHHH!!! *covers his face with his arms*
(Phoebee stops and lands on her feet right in front of him.
Phoebee: Haha! You should have seen the look on your face, you totally thought I was gonna fly right into you! Fortunately this bee knows how to control herself in flight. So…are you new? Don’t think I’ve seen your face around her before.
Antonio: Uhhh…yeah I am actually.
Phoebee: Nice, welcome to Bugtropolis.
Phoebee: I just know you’ll like it here. Why not have a look around town?
Antonio: I sure will.
Phoebee: Oh but where’s my manners? My name’s Phoebee by the way. That’s Phoebee, with two e’s and the end.
Antonio: I’m Antonio.
Phoebee: Nice to meet you Antonio, well I better get going. I’m a pretty busy bee ya know, and I’ve got a lot to do. See ya around Antonio!
Antonio: Uhh..yeah! See ya! Haha bye!
Phoebee flies off*
Antonio’s stomach grumbles*
Antonio: Boy, I sure am hungry. Wonder if there’s anything around here to eat…
Hot dog salesbug: HOT DOGS! GET YOUR HOT DOGS HERE!
Antonio: Oooh…hot dogs!
goes over to the hot dog stand*
Hot dog salesbug: Yes, how can I help you today sir?
Antonio: I’d like ONE hot dog please!
Hot dog salesbug: Coming right up! (goes over to a pot and pulls out a lump of nasty steaming dark green sludge, he rolls it up and puts it in a bun, then serves it to Antonio. The bug sitting next to Antonio sniffs it, then faints.)
Antonio: Uhhh…yeah, no thanks. I think I’ll eat somewhere else…
Hot dog salesbug: Hey! Where ya going? Don’t you want to try our nachos? (peels off pieces of his own skin, places them in a bowl then drenches them with the green sludge.)
Antonio: There’s gotta be somewhere decent to eat…*sees a restraunt called “Webster’s”*
Antonio: A fancy restaurant huh? Guess I’ll give it a try.
(walks into the restaurant, the place is full of spider webs, and there’s tables and chairs stuck to some of the spider webs, where the customers eat. Antonio sees a waiter.)
Waiter: Hello, and how may I help you?
Antonio: Table for one please!
Waiter: Very well, come with me.
leads Antonio to a table*
Waiter: And what would you like this evening?
Antonio: I’ll have….know what? Just give me the best thing you’ve got. Surprise me.
Waiter: Very well then.
(After an hour and a half, Antonio finally gets his food.)
Antonio: Mmm…looks yummy. *inhales the entire meal*
Antonio: Ugh, that was HORRIBLE! But I was starving and it was better than nothing so see ya!
Waiter: Hold on a second.
Waiter: You didn’t pay, sir.
Antonio: Pay? Pay?....uh oh…ummm heh heh here’s the thing….I’m….kinda….uhhhhh….broke.
Waiter: Oh, I see. *rings a bell*
(Antonio looks up and sees a scary dark figure in the spider web above him, it walks into the light and it is revealed to be Webster.)
Antonio: Uhhhh…heh heh…hi there.
(Webster grabs Antonio by his neck)
Webster: Do you know what we DO to non-payers?...
Antonio: Uhhh…let them off with a warning? Heh heh…no?
(Just then, another customer comes in and shouts “HELLO MY FELLOW BUGTROPOLIANS!”)
(It is Mayor Monarch.)
Webster: MAYOR MONARCH! *drops Antonio* Hello sir! Pleasure to have you here!
Monarch: I have come to this establishment to have a delicious filling meal, not to chitchat.
Webster: Of course! Sit right here sir! *points at a table* So, what will you like to eat this fine evening?
Monarch: Hmm…that ant fellow over there looks satisfied…give me whatever he had.
Webster: Ah, yes haha of course. *runs to the kitchen, panicked.*
(Antonio follows him)
Antonio: Hey, you alright?
Webster: No, I am not alright….we haven’t served a decent meal in months….our last good chef quit, and ever since then everything we have served to customers has been terrible. THIS IS NOT GOOD, NOT GOOD I TELL YOU! *throws himself to the floor, rocks back and forth and sucks his thumb*
Antonio: Well…I used to be a pretty good chef back at the ant farm…maybe I could help?
(Webster continues rocking back and forth and sucking his thumb.)
Antonio: Right…well, it looks like I got everything I need to make a good meal all here. This will only take a while!
(2 hours later)
(Mayor Monarch is asleep at his table)
Antonio: YOUR MEAL SIR!
Monarch: *wakes up*WHOA? WHAT? Oh…..well, it’s about time! *takes a bite of his food* Why, this….this is absolutely….
Antonio: Great? Fantastic?! AMAZING?!?!
Antonio: What?...but I…
Monarch: Ha ha! I’m kidding my boy I’m kidding! It’s delicious! I love it! Best meal I’ve ever had! Thank you for this, I will come here regularly!
Monarch walks out*
Webster walks over to Antonio*
Webster: Wow….not bad, kid.
Antonio: Oh…well I….
Webster: Ya know, forget about paying for your food. It’s free, thank you for doing what you did.
Webster: Also, HOW’D YOU LIKE A JOB?!
Webster: Yeah, you’re a great chef! You officially start tomorrow. *puts a hat on him*
Antonio walks out of the restaurant confidently*
Antonio: Well, this day has actually been going pretty good so far! *trips*
Antonio: What the….looks like I tripped over some weird….rock thing…with….a satellite dish….and….a…mailbox?
(Snelson comes out of his shell)
Snelson: Hey hey! What’s up pal?
Snelson: Duuuuude, I saw the whole thing! You got grumpy old Webster to give you a job! HE MUST REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLY like you!
Webster walks outside, and locks the door, as it is closing time*
Webster: Excuse me? Grumpy old who?
Snelson: Oh hi! Nice bowtie! Mind if I try it on? *grabs Webster’s bowtie and puts it on with his eye* Do I look good or do I look good?
Webster: Hey! Give me that back…*tries to grab his bowtie back, but it is now stuck to Snelson’s slime and completely sticky.* uhhh….oh second though…..keep it. It’s yours now.
(Webster walks off)
Snelson: YAAAAAAAY! Thank you grumpy old Webster!
(Snelson looks at Antonio)
Snelson: Hey! Mister….uhhhhhhhhhh what’s your name?
Snelson: Antonio! I can tell we’re gonna be BEST BUDDIES Antonio! *hugs Antonio with his eyes*
Antonio: Uhhhhh…right well it’s getting late and it’s kinda dark out so I should probably get going….BYE! *runs off*
(It is now night time, Antonio is walking the streets alone. Phoebee flies over him and notices him.)
Antonio: Oh, hi.
Phoebee: Antonio, right?
Phoebee: It’s pretty cold out tonight, wanna spend the night over at my hive?
Phoebee: Cool, come on.
(Phoebee takes Antonio to her hive.)
Phoebee: Sorry about the mess, my little sister came over today, you can sleep here. *points to the couch*.
(Antonio lies down on the couch, Phoebee throws him a blanket and a pillow.)
Phoebee: You need anything else just let me know, okay?
(Phoebee begins walking to her bedroom)
(Phoebee turns around)
Antonio: Umm..thank you.
Phoebee: No problem. *smiles*
(Phoebee walks to her bedroom)
Antonio (to himself): Bugtropolis….this place is perfect. *closes his eyes.*
