Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Kids
Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Kids is a 2003 American-Canadian computer-animated television special from Nelvana that premiered on Treehouse TV and Nick Jr. on March 31, 2003. It was based on David Kirk's book series of the same name and serves as the pilot to the show Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends. Voices included Brooke Shields, Rick Moranis and Tony Jay. The characters are CGI animated insects and arachnids in a relatively natural setting, but with anthropomorphic qualities appropriate for a children's story.
- Directed by Mike Fallows and Kevin McDonagh. (timing director) Written by Nadine Van der Velde.
- We have to be good to bugs. All bugs.
- Squirt: [to Spiderus] Nice bugs don't eat their friends!
- Mr. Mantis: [regarding Miss Spider and Holley] Will you look at these lovebugs? Not a bug in Sunny Patch can tell me that these two don't belong together. I guess that's just nature's way.
- Betty Beetle': I didn't know a thing about having a baby spider either. I had to make it all up too. But it doesn't matter if it's baby spiders, beetles, bedbugs or grubs... everything they need, you have already got right there in your heart, Flora.
- Holley: I always did want a big family.
- Miss Spider: Eight is a perfect number.
- Squirt: Yeah! We've got eight legs.
