Larva (also known as Larvae) is a computer-animated franchise made by TUBA Entertainment in Seoul, South Korea.
- Yellow – is a dimwitted and happy-go-lucky yellow-colored caterpillar with an antenna. Yellow is often abused by Red, but that never endangers their friendship. Although usually he obeys Red, he loses his mind in front of food. Yellow is bad with Red because he take all things that are for Red and Red always fights him. He changes color from yellow to brown and he grows green shades around his mouth when feeling extreme emotions.
- Red – a mostly hot-tempered and greedy red-colored caterpillar. Arrogant and often seen abusing Yellow, Red usually ends up hurting himself instead. He usually shouts like Bruce Lee when afraid or angered.
- Violet – an oversized ghost slug. He is sometimes shown with his lower half buried in the ground. When he is threatened, he exposes his whole body and roars, showing his sharp teeth.
- Brown – a dung beetle that gathers poop. To him, poop is either his food or his treasure. He hates it when other insects touch his prized poop. He has a long strand of hair on his right cheek.
- Black – a horned Atlas beetle that has great strength and is usually punching a cocoon (which he uses as punching bag). He's aggressive and will beat up whoever he thinks is messing with him. In "Black’s Back" he turns out to be a slug wearing beetle armor.
- Rainbow – a snail with a red and green shell. When in his shell, he moves slowly, but under that he has a muscular human-like body and can function like humans do.
- Pink – a pink larva with two antennae. She loves Yellow and Yellow loves her as well. She hides a great strength behind her cute, beautiful face.
- Ivory - a stick bug with a brown skin, Ivory has a very thin body with a brown skin color. He black eyes and darker colored areas by his eyelids. He has 2 antennae and a little pink studs on. His girlfriend is Cocoa.
Larva was launched by TUBA Entertainment in 2011, with adult viewers in mind. The producers aimed to create a franchise that could appeal to an audience of a wide age scale. It debuted on the national channel, KBS and on cable television with short, 90-second episodes. The series quickly became popular, and as of September 2015 was sold to more than 40 countries, including Canal Plus in France, as well as merchandising contracts taking place in Taiwan, Germany, Turkey and Chile, among others. The creators earned 1 million dollars in royalties in the first three months of launching related merchandise, including toys and stationery products.
Originally created with the intentions to "come up with a good, marketable character", the franchise has spawned merchandise earning $750 million to $1 billion annually. In addition to the various merchandise and commercial tie-ins, the franchise has spawned two books.
