  • Episode Description
  • What a Tangled Web: One morning, the kids are all finishing breakfast and Squirt, Shimmer, Dragon and Bounce are in a hurry to leave. They've decided to try to have the most fun in one day, but Squirt's been having a problem lately when it comes to cleaning up his old webs. The kids get on their way and have lots of fun, but Squirt leaves a big mess in the process. When Roxie of the Flying Aces comes to town, Squirt worries that he won't get to ride --- as he's going to need eighty legs to clean up the mess he made. Cry Buggie: The kids have been practicing hard for the big Soccerberry Tournament and Squirt seems to be really good. While he delights in his skills, Wiggle cries over missing a goal and Dragon tells Squirt that he's a "cry buggie." He tells Squirt that big bugs never cry. In practice later, Squirt sprains one of his legs and has to miss the tournament. He's very sad, but is determined not to cry. He learns that crying is natural and discovers the beauty and happiness that can emerge after a good cry.moreless

    • Squirt: (singing) So what do you do when you feel so bad? / You just can't smile cause you feel so sad / There must be something else that I can try / Cause I'm not gonna / Sure don't wanna / No siree, not I / Cause big bugs they don't cry.

    • Squirt: Wow, Wiggle was pretty upset when I scored that goal. Dragon: Ah, he's just a cry buggie.

    • Squirt: (seeing the others in the Cozy Hole) What are you guys doing here? Shimmer: They canceled the rest of the tournament. Pansy: And someone took it a lot harder then anyone else. Dragon: (in tears) I really, really, wanted to play today. I almost scored. It's just not fair! (continues crying)

    • Dragon: (trying to hide his tears) I'm not really crying. They're just raindrops. Squirt: Don't be embarrassed. Big bugs do cry. When they need to.

    • Squirt: (observing a beautiful rainbow) Mom, Dad. That's what I feel like inside me right now --- a rainbow.

    Allusions (2)

    • The scene where Miss Spider and Holley slurp up the one strand of web and they end up kissing each other is a spoof to the famous scene in the film Lady and the Tramp.

    • In "Cry Buggie", Dragon claims that he never cries, but when the soccerberry tournament is cancelled due to rain, he bursts into tears. This is similar to the past episode, "The Listening Walk," where Dragon claims that nothing scares him, but when Wiggle blows a horn at the end, Dragon gets scared half to death.
