This has been driving me crazy for years. In the early '90s, I remember seeing a CGI short film. It’s about a kid who gets a computer game, but when he starts playing, something goes wrong and the game crashes the computer. The kid throws it out and then we are focusing on the story of what’s going on inside the computer.
Apparently it is inhabited by digital “bugs”. I remember a spider is the main one, with some other bugs (grasshopper, fly, etc). They are upset that their home is being thrown out and look to save the computer. They do, and the kid takes it back inside and happy ending.
Sadly I can’t remember anything else, like dialogue, but this is stuck in my head and I desperately need a title to ease my mind. All I remember about it specifically is seeing a commercial about a “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” theme park attraction about the same time. Which would place it late '80s or early '90s. Please help if you can. Thank you!
