Status: Partially Lost

Anthony Ant is an American/Canadian/British animated series based on a book of the same name that was created by Graham and Lorna Philpot.[1] The series aired on both HBO Family in the United States, and YTV in Canada from February 1st, to April 11th, 1999. The show took place in Antville, an underground metropolis populated with thousands of ants.[2] Anthony and his friends would occasionally go up to the surface where they have to survive, and escape from "bigfeet" (humans) who live on the very surface.[3]

The series is not known to have gotten reruns after HBO Family, and YTV stopped airing the series. HiT Entertainment hasn't announced any sort of plans on putting this on DVD, nor any streaming service, and only 2 VHS tapes of the series were ever released. Currently, while 24 of the show's episodes are available online, only 2 of them are in English, with the remaining 22 being dubbed in Russian and 1 in Greek.
