Circus bugs?! How can you be circus bugs?!
~ Flik, finding out that the warrior bugs aren't who he thought they were

The Circus Bugs are a group of bugs who are trained to be circus performers, but mistaken as warrior bugs by Flik in the film A Bug's Life. Flik first sees them in the city doing a Robin Hood act, believing them to be warriors, and then convinces them to come to Ant Island to help him with his "bug problem."


Princess Atta: "You mean you're not warriors?"
P.T. Flea: "Are you kidding? These guys are the lousiest circus bugs you've ever seen, and they're gonna make me rich!"
