Animation. - It's not easy being Barry. An earthworm gets no respect. He’s at the bottom of the food chain, with a dead-end job at the compost plant. Barry’s lot is a dull, dark existence. But one day an old disco record turns his life upside down. Barry suddenly sees the light: he will star in the world’s greatest disco band, Sunshine Barry & the Disco Worms, and play that funky music to stardom. True, he's got no rhythm, no band and no arms, but, as Barry says, “we’ll do it anyway!”
