by December 27, 2016 General

SINGAPORE, Dec 27 — Insectibles is an animation TV series created by One Animation that features the adventures of Zak and his grandfather, simply known as Grandpa, when the latter’s invention accidentally shrinks them both down to the size of insects.

With the aid of one bionic arm and three ‘enhanced’ insect friends — Syd, Chowser and Willow, they are the Insectibles, and find themselves facing challenges beyond their wildest dreams. They bravely trek through grass blade forests and fight the evil mecha-mosquito Adilla with her daughter, Lidia, her faithful servant Gnat and a whole platoon of bodybuilding cockroaches.
