From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Santo Bugito was a 1995 animated cartoon series developed by Klasky-Csupo for CBS. It ran for thirteen episodes and revolved around the goings on in a fictional community of insects. Notable achievements of this series included a revival of the insect-community genre (little of which had been seen since Mr. Bug Goes to Town) well before Antz or A Bug's Life, and voice cameos from well known performers such as James Belushi and Johnny Cash. The regular cast included Hollywood veterans such as Henry Gibson, George Kennedy, Cheech Marin, and Joan Van Ark.

Synopsis

Set in a bustling Texas insect border town of the same name, Santo Bugito was the brainchild of animation mavens Klasky-Csupo, creators of Rugrats and Stressed Eric, among others. With its quirky illustrations and funny double entendres, the series showed the insect inhabitants of Santo Bugito solving daily problems common to all beetles, crickets and roaches.

At the center of Santo Bugito were Carmen De La Antchez and her husband Paco, two savvy ants running a thriving Mexican restaurant for bugs. Inside Carmen's Cocina, Carmen and Paco served up platters of caterpillar fries, spider sandwiches and insect burritos.

Other memorable characters included the two fly buddies Clem and Burt, lawyer Emma Squito, caterpillar urban artist Eaton Woode, a brilliant Praying Mantis named Professor, flamenco spider Lolita Larachnid, the Wolf Spider family, Donald the Dragonfly, Ralph the Ladybug, the Roachmuller family and Lencho the Flea.
