Bug is much better attraction than O'Canada. If for no other reason but you can sit down during Bug. After a long day of walking around a theme park, it is nice to be able to sit down and enjoy an attraction.

For the remainder of this thread, I shall sulk in a corner, eating a chocolate croissant and muttering that Impressions de France is better than both of these shows.... :-(

I do enjoy all the theming in the queue. I like trying to find all the different animals in the tree roots.

O Canada might just need the Heimlich manoeuvre as it chokes on this heavy beating from the Bugs.
It's tough to be a bug but , it seems, even tougher to be Canadian in this particular competition.
Have to say that I do like O Canada. Just not as much as ITTBAB.

I may be biased here, since I have a mild bug phobia. Still, while 3D/4D shows are dime-a-dozen at theme parks, Circlevision is still kinda unique. I love Canadians, and I find O Canada to be funny and entertaining.

If you beat out Carousel of Progress like Tough to be a Bug did then you better keep winning. No contest here.

Again no contest here. Totally entaining show in a sit down theator. Standing up watching a travel movie, even if is in circle vision. Is not entaining.

Its tough to be a bug gives you a nice seated show, but don't sit too long :)

Nothing wrong with O Canada, but I like my seats!

Going to drop my Canadian pride here and vote for the superior show: Bug.

It's tough for a 3D show to seem original after over a decade of operation (see: Honey, I Shrunk the Audience), and yet I always make a stop at this attraction in the afternoon on an AK visit. The queue is beautiful, the theater is comfortable, the effects are terrific, the gags are hilarious, and the experience is rejuvenating. I always leave this attraction beaming, and everyone I experience with loves it, too.

This might have been close with the old Canada movie, but the Martin Short additions (which don't use the 360 view) make it a forgettable show. I say Bugs all the way.

It's Tough to be a Bug has it all. No match for canada as it moves ahead.

I'm Canadian, so maybe it was unpatriotic of me to vote for Bug...but this is the second best Disney 3D movie (PhilharMagic is the best, of course). Plus I love the bonus Hopper AA!
