The Week contest: Love bug

This week's question: Having spent 17 years growing underground, trillions of cicadas are starting to hatch across the East Coast and Midwest. The members of Brood X will spend four to six weeks chirping and mating before dying. If Disney were to make an animated movie about a cicada's brief and noisy hunt for love, what rated-PG title could it have?
