  • Episode Description
  • The Marin Rose: Late one night, Mis Spider's kids ask for a story before bed and Shimmer suggests the tale of The Marin Rose. Miss Spider happily reads the tale, a story of brave knights who are commanded to pick a magnificent rose by their King. After facing fierce obstacles, the knights discover the flower and must make an important decision. The next day, the kids must apply what they've learned when they discover Spiderus about to pick a beautiful rose for Spindella. A Sticky Situation: When Sunny Patch faces a shortage of honey, the bugs turn their attention to the amber treasure --- an abandoned honeycomb that's supposed to have a wealth of honey. When Miss Spider gives the last of the Spider family honey to Ted and Ned, some of the kids decide to go searching for the treasure themselves. Squirt and Bounce discover that Spiderus is searching for the treasure too, but got stuck in pinesap. Though Spiderus is often mean to them, having just scared them a little earlier, Squirt and Bounce recall Miss Spider's advice to be good to bugs, all bugs. They work together to try to save Spiderus before he becomes fossilized.moreless

(Points to Spiderus who's about to pick the flower)

    • (Spiderus tries to get other bugs to help him get unstuck, but nobody will) Spiderus: Why won't anybuggy stop to help me? Squirt: Maybe because you're not so nice sometimes. Spiderus: Me? Not nice? When am I not nice? Squirt: When you tell bugs you're going to eat them and you scare them on purpose. Spiderus: Oh yes. That.
