*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends: The Prince, The Princess and the Bee" is the newest direct-to-video feature from this wonderful, brilliantly animated series featuring Miss Spider, Holley and their buggy charges.

"The Prince, The Princess and the Bee" focuses largely on the character of Shimmer. Fans of the series know that Shimmer is a jewel beetle that was adopted by the Spider family along with Bounce and Dragon. All of these children have lost their original family, but in this one --- Shimmer has a chance to find hers --- and it may just turn out to be royal. Sunny Patch is having its own royal event, with the birthday of Princess Honey of the bees. And when the Beetle Brigade flies by and pays their respects while on their way back to Mushroom Glen, Shimmer hears the tale of the Glen's lost jewel beetle princess. She also learns that there's a big ball soon being held there and she resolves to get to Mushroom Glen to see if she can find out her true history. When travel becomes an issue, she gets some help from an old friend from the first "Miss Spider" film --- Stinky the stinkbug! TPTP&TB is filled with wonderful lessons about bravery, respect, true courage and appreciation for one what has. None of the lessons are overbearing and the plot is quite fun to follow and enjoy.

Everything about this production is top-notch. The CGI animation is very well-formed and they don't skimp on the background artwork either --- with wonderful color textures and scenes. The film features three songs and a great audio and instrumental track to match. The characters are all generally quite likable, or at least amusing/interesting.
