A collection of 13 musical tales about a spider and a boy. When a boy first meets a spider in the bath, he is scared, but eventually they become true friends.
Shown on BBC and Nick Junior, this has become a children's classic. A series of thirteen charming animated songs about a boy who discovers a spider in the bath. Once he overcomes his fear of the eight legged hairy creature, the two of them become inseparable friends and have hilariously mad adventures together.
I originally had this on video for my daughter who loved it, and was thrilled to now see it on dvd, and bought it for my grandaughter. It fun and refreshing, and makes a great change to some of the childrens t.v currently being shown. My grandaughter is only 1, but is dancing to the songs, a hit yet again!!!
I only vaguely remember this animation from its original release but my better-half remembers it far too clearly, & she uses it as her DVD of choice to entertain the little ones. The songs are lovely and animation is brilliant (old school pen & ink animation). The characters have a scribbled nature to them but that only adds to the charm.
If your little ones aren't a fan of spiders, they might some of the episodes a little creepy but most of the series are great to watch, listen to and sing along to whether you like spiders or not.
Even I have to admit to missing animation such as this.
Only problem I have with the DVD (and I'm assuming this is due to the re-mastering process) is that the sound is pretty low.
Like so many other reviewers, I bought this many years ago in VHS format. I also bought the DVD a few years ago, but gave it away. I now have another young daughter and couldn't wait to buy yet another copy of this lovely set of cartoons.
The songs are excellently written and performed. They sort of lull you into the stories. The animation is just so cute and the way the spider is depicted is very well thought out. Even kids who hate spiders would love this...unless they have a massively uncontrollable phobia. It's very captivating and there's a lot of humour mixed in with the charm.
I'd recommend this to anyone with small children. You'll soon be singing all the little songs. ''Spider in the bath, spider in the bath. Creepy crawly, creepy crawly spider in the bath. You know he's only there because he wants to have a laugh....'' Yes, we love it!!
Received this item within the delivery time specified for the option I chose (in fact, I believe it was slightly earlier). It was shrink wrapped, brand new and the packaging was in excellent condition. The DVD contains all 13 episodes of the "Spider - I'm Only Scary 'cos I'm Hairy" series (I believe there was only one). The DVD is of very good quality as is the sound. I bought this to remind my 22-year-old daughter of what she used to watch when she was 2! And it's STILL a pleasure to watch. A definite must-buy for fans.
This is a fabulous, short series from the early 90's. Packed with fun, charm, innocence and beautiful songs played on an acoustic guitar, it is simply what childhood is about, there is no silliness, farfetched or nauseating entertainment that you currently find in some of today's programs for children.
I bought this DVD simply for nostalgia as I loved it as a child and I found that it has lost none of it's entertainment value or charm. It certainly has not "dated" and I will look forward to one day sitting down with my own children to watch this DVD.
