Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, "Antie" Stop Motion Puppet

original movie prop

A Scientist, Wayne Szalinski, creates an invention that accidentally shrinks his two children along with two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight dangers of the wild as the father searches for an answer to bring them back to their normal sizes. From the 1989 Walt Disney Film Honey I Shrunk the Kids, this is a screen used stop motion puppet of the character “Antie” the Ant. Antie was used in the film when the kids' hunger is saved by one of Nick's oatmeal creme cookies, but their meal is interrupted by an ant scouting it. Ron decides to tame it in order to take them home. Soon they grow attached to "Antie" and try to set him free, but he instead decides to follow Ron like a loyal pet. The kids find a Lego block to camp for the night, but they are attacked by a scorpion which traps Ron in the Lego. Antie comes to rescue Ron, but is fatally stung before the kids unite and wound the scorpion driving it off. This particular puppet came direct from Disney and is fully armatured to be animated for the stop motion scenes as needed.
