The Grumpy Bug, by Robert Scull, is a story of a young grumpy bug who goes around asking other bugs to "Play with me!" The story has been made into a short cartoon on TV for Nick Jr., the division of Nickelodeon aimed at younger children. They also made a faithful, but interactive, Flash version of the story on their web site.  Don’t be turned off by the fact that it is narrated by Sandra Bernhard. She does a great job with it. Below is a scene from the Flash version. When you watch the story, make sure you move your mouse to each of the characters — most of the time they’ll do something.
