A colorful program with a gentle touch
21 October 2019 | by cshorton95See all my reviews

To me, 'Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends' is one of the best animated children's television programs. Based on David Kirk's children's book character Miss Spider, it centers around her and her family living in Hollow Tree. Miss Spider teaches her eight children important values such as friendship, expressing one's feelings, telling the truth, and being kind to one another. The intro theme and background music are sweet and beautifully orchestrated, and the CG animation is nice with the vibrant colors especially popping out. The characters are all fantastic, there is a lot to like about them. Children will be drawn to Miss Spider's motherly love and warmth, her musician husband Holley, and of course her eight lively and endearing children.

This is also an educational program that teaches children about insects as well as the natural world around them. And as someone who loves nature and the outdoors, I appreciate the emphasis of the importance of taking care of the earth and its creatures. The stories are all interesting and unique, and children will relate to them and the characters easily. None of the characters are pointless or annoying, and obnoxiousness is never present here. The program is very pleasant and each story is told in a respectful, gentle manner.

'Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends' is a program that children, especially ones who love bugs, nature, and the outdoors, will love. It will never fail to entertain and make one smile.
