16 of The Best Bugs In Popular Culture

Pixar, Toho

They’re creepy, crawly, icky, sticky, and odd. They’re bugs and they’re weird. Bugs are very unique compared to other animals, given their distinct looks and the fact that not many other types of creatures rock a skeleton that operates outside of their body (for some, at least). They have become great fodder for various pop culture characters.

For whatever reason, we have a ton of different characters in television, film, cartoons, video games, and comics that are insectoid or arachnid in nature, whether it is inspirational, a mutated human-bug person, or just a bug who can talk. We imprint personalities onto bugs to create such unique characters, some of which are cooler than others.
