Trivia: In the movie A Bug's Life, when Flik enters the city, a code on one for the old boxes he passes reads A113-1195. When John, the creator of the movie was in the first year of the Character Animation Program at California Institute of the Arts, the classroom was numbered A113. That number is also on the license plate of Andy's van in Toy Story. John says it will probably be in all his movies. He added 11/95 because that was when Toy Story opened in theaters.

Mistakes

As Flik is just leaving the island to go find the "tough bugs", he's followed by two young male ants. The two young ants look quite different, one being blue and the other more purple.
