Tuck and Roll are the pillbugs from the "Bug's Life" film. It may be a bit of a stretch, but they somehow inspired this bumper car ride.

They also complained that the cars got into jams and it was hard to get out. In fact, the best thing about the ride may have been the cute design of the cars, which looked like the pillbugs it was named for.

Tuck 'n' Roll are pillbugs. You know, those little creepy-crawly critters that roll up into a ball for protection. In the "Bug's Life" film, their constant fighting and arguing gets them fired.

They talk all the time, but no matter how many languages you speak you wouldn't understand. That's becuase it's not a real language, just a bunch of sounds strung together to sound vaguely Slavic. The only English words they know are "Hey!", "Tweet-tweet! Tweet-tweet!", "You fired!" and "Charge-a!".

Tuck 'n' Roll's ride was unique to the Disneyland Resort in California.
