5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest childrens cartoons ever 7 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Spider in the Bath is in the same category as "Wallace and Gromit" and "Tom and Jerry". It is a superbly crafted, timeless classic that works on many levels.
THE MUSIC
Highly melodic and folksy. Comforting, humorous and catchy and is appealing to children very young children(18 months + onwards).

* Accoustic guitar,
* trumpets (reminiscent of brass bands and Dvorak's New World Symphony),
* electric guitars,
* the gentle vocals of the male singer
and
* the additional vocals provided by his children
all contribute to a wonderful soundtrack worth buying in itself.
THE LYRICS
Display humour, pathos and delight. They make good children's poetry in their own right. A child's eye perspective is maintained throughout.
THE CARTOONS
These appear to be designed specifically for the songs. Simple ink and watercolour. Easy for young children to follow and enjoy.
ARACHNOPHOBIA
My daughter has been afraid of spiders. But "Spider in the Bath" was never frightening. She loved spider - the title character (but was still scared of real spiders). [She is now 12 and the video "Eight Legged Freaks" has helped her with her arachnophobia - huge scary man eating spiders that could be cute was a revelation for her}.
ADULTS VIEWPOINT
Good music. The scenes from school appeal to the older parent and grandparents. Many schools have changed(who wears caps these days?).
EDUCATIONAL PERSPECTIVE
The lyrics are repetititive as are parts of the cartoon. Every one of the 13 episodes are visual poems. Children are can easily understand what is going one, anticipate, the next refrain and benefit from the clearly structure way in which every episode is organised.
FAVOURITE EPISODES
1, 2, 11 and 13.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Amazing!!! 4 Jan 2007
I remember when these came out. I was probably four or five then, but I can remember how much I loved them. The music, lyrics and animation are great and still make me smile. I recently dug them out for some younger relatives and found I enjoyed watching them again. I remembered the lyrics even now, and found myself laughing along with the kids. I throughly recommend Spider to all kids and parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 8 Sep 2005
By A Customer
This is utterly charming! I did not watch it as a child (I am 25 now) but I defy any four year old not to love it! It is completely captivating and absolutely enchanting. I can't stop watching it. I think it can teach us all something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spider dvd 2 Nov 2008
No child should be without this dvd. My son LOVED the songs as a toddler and even granny can still sing the songs by heart ten years later. When my other son get to two years we'll be buying him a copy - the other ones worn out! Spider [1992]
