  • Episode Description
  • Pitch and Itch: When a dry spell comes to Sunny Patch, the bugs face a shortage of seeds, one of their prime food sources. Hungry, but not wanting to work, Ted and Ned stumble into a tricky plan to get some seeds. As they sell supposedly "magic" leaf carpets, many bugs in Sunny Patch start coming down with terrible itching. Bounce and Squirt, meanwhile, beg their parents for a carpet, but are warned that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.Bounce Back: Bounce is rarely seen without his cheerful grin, but now it seems to have deserted him. Trying to help him out, Shimmer tells him a tale of brave knights on a quest. The knights make a discovery that seems to apply to Bounce's situation.moreless

    • Miss Spider: Sometimes a thoughtless remark can be like casting a spell. Bounce: I'm not a baby. Squirt: I'm really sorry I called you one, Bounce.

    • Holley: Smiles have a funny way of finding their way back onto your face. Miss Spider: You just have to figure out how you lost it in the first place.

    • Holley: Goodness. You all look sadder than junebugs in December.

    • Jester Stinky: Just leave it up to the old Stinky Meister. Knight Dragon: (covering his nose) Would you please make it snappy, forsooth?

    • Jester Stinky: Hmm? A smiling potion? Dame Shimmer: Indeed. We fear that Sir Bounce-a-Lot has fallen under a smell... I mean spell.

    Notes (2)

    • Alice Prodanou is the writer for the first story and Lynn Reist is the director. Nadine van der Velde is the writer for "Bounce Back" and Neil Affleck is the director.

    • Pansy reads the title displays for both "Pitch and Itch" and "Bounce Back."

    Trivia (1)

    • "Pitch and itch" features the earliest appearance of Spiderus's daughter, Bella. Spiderus's children weren't born until "Lulla-Bug," suggesting this story was aired well out of production order.

    Allusions (2)

    • Holley saying "Seeds don't grow on trees" is a parody to the phrase, "Money doesn't grow on trees".

    • Shimmer: So the brave knights trekked to the pond on their way to seek help from the Wondrous Wizard of Bog. A reference to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a powerful wizard featured in a book by the same name written by L. Frank Baum and first published in 1900, later popularized by a feature film in 1939 starring Judy Garland as the story's heroine, Dorothy.
