Explanation:
When I did this test in Italian, I had a look at the Disney Italy site, section devoted to A bug's life. it helped me a lot to find the right tune.
BTW, I hope the situation with Spanish tests is better than the one with Italian. I did the test 3 months ago and heard nothing, then someone who works in-house said they still have to correct 45 translation tests in Italian!!!
