The Happy Cricket (Portuguese: O Grilo Feliz) is a 2001 animated children's fantasy film directed by Walbercy Ribas. The film is about a singing cricket who must rescue his friends from the lizard, Wartlord, and save Linda the Night Star from that villain's grasp.



The title character was first seen in local commercials for Sharp Electronics in the 1980s.[1] The film spent over 20 years in development,[1] and 30 months in production.[2]

The English-language dub is dedicated to one of its voice actors, Bob Papenbrook.


In early 2009, 20th Century Fox released a CGI sequel, O Grilo Feliz e os Insetos Gigantes.
