Slim
You always cast me as the broom, the pole! The stick! A splinter!
~ Slim's complaint to P.T. about being casted as inanimate objects instead of a real character.

Slim is a character in the 1998 Pixar film A Bug's Life. He is tan stick insect and a clown in P.T. Flea's circus troupe. It appears that he is unhappy with his position at the circus troupe, as his boss constantly casts him as a prop instead of a character, with such castings such as "the broom, the pole, the stick, and the splinter".

He is voiced by David Hyde Pierce, who would later voice Drix.

Personality

Slim is very nervous and erratic, and is usually reprimanded by P.T. Flea. Apparently, he is unhappy with his position at the circus troupe, as his boss constantly casts him as a prop instead of an actual character. He is best friends with Heimlich and Francis, and seems to be tolerant of Francis' aggressive nature.

Role

Slim is a cinnamon brown stick insect and a clown in P.T. Flea's circus troupe. It appears that he is unhappy with his position at the circus troupe, as his boss constantly casts him as a prop instead of a character, with such castings as a broom, a pole, a stick and a splinter. He is shown to be best friends with Heimlich and Francis, and often treats other bugs with more respect in contrast to Francis' aggressive nature. However, he seems to tolerate it, as seen when he calmly broke up a fight between Francis and a couple of flies during a performance.

Unlike most stick insects, Slim does not have wings and cannot fly. Because of this, Francis usually carries him for transport. At one point, Francis, while chasing after Hopper who kidnapped Flik in retribution for the ant rebellion, accidentally loses Slim in a branch group. At the end of the film, when the circus bugs leave Ant Island, Slim rides on the back of the circus wagon since Francis helps Manny carry Heimlich.
