  • show Description
  • Set in the fly metropolis of Stickyfeet, Disney's The Buzz on Maggie takes viewers into the daily life of flies, seen from the point of view of Maggie, an unusually creative and expressive tween fly. Maggie is fun-loving, highly energetic and thinks outside the box, but ruffles antennae with her inspired antics in the conventional, hard-working world of upstanding flies. When she is faced with one of the many routines of everyday life, Maggie devises a way to make it fresh and exciting – and before long, she puts her exuberant, can-do attitude to work on translating her inspiration into reality – but her actions inevitably upset the balance of the world around her and have consequences she doesn't anticipate. The voice cast is: Jessica DiCicco ("Bratz") as Maggie, David Kaufman ("Stuart Little") as older brother Aldrin, Thom Adcox ("American Dragon: Jake Long") as younger brother Pupert, Cree Summer ("The Proud Family") as best friend Rayna and Tara Strong ("The Proud Family") as Aldrin's girlfriend Dawn. Dave Polsky ("Scary Movie 2") is the executive producer and Laura Perkins Brittain (Disney Channel's "That's So Raven") is the co-executive producer. The director is executive producer Dave Wasson ("The Ugly Duck-Thing").Disney's The Buzz on Maggie is produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and premieres in June 2005.moreless

    Trivia (30)

    • Yes, flies do indeed vomit on their food. They cannot chew. After it dissolves in a bath of stomach acids, they suck it up with special mouth parts. "Brundlefly" (Jeff Goldblum) demonstrates this in the remake of The Fly.

    • If you have good memory, you'll notice Mr. and Mrs. Pesky's lines during Maggie's hallucinations of the posters are mixed up. Actually, Mr. Pesky said, "You're not old enough to see those kinds of movies." and Mrs. Pesky actaully said, "Because Aldrin's older than you." Aldrin's line is in its place, though.

    • Don't flies only live for 24 hours then die? And since when do ladybugs hang out with flies?

    • In "Funball", before Aldrin shoots and misses, he wears what he wore throughout the whole game. However, when he misses and says "What?!", he wears what he wore before the game.

    • How come we never know the names of Dawn's two friends.The one with pink eye shadow and the one with blue eye shadow? Why don't they say them?

    • In this episode we learn that Fly's keep germs as pets.

    • Maggie's sister Bella is cute and adorable but when you see Maggie at Bella's age she was positively ugly.

    • Why would you carry your baby pictures around?
