Episode Summary

Fungus Among Us; Ground Bound
Fungus Among Us: Heavy rains have come to Sunny Patch, bringing both sniffles and sneezes as well as an infestation of mushrooms. When Wiggle spots one of these mushrooms while out gathering ingredients for Miss Spider's special soup, he asks to take it home. It's a cute little mushroom, but Holley warns against bringing into the Hollow Tree, as the spores will spread and get everywhere. Figuring that such a small mushroom could cause no more, Wiggle takes it anyway and soon the Hollow Tree starts filling up with mushrooms. As Wiggle withholds the truth, he is tormented by a nightmare of mushrooms taking over all over Sunny Patch and become a mushroom himself.

Ground Bound: Berry, a crane fly, has always done a great job as the lifeguard at the Taddy Puddle, but fears his days on duty are over when he injures his wings. Dr. Bee-Better tells him he'll no longer able to fly. Miss Spider and the others agree to let him recuperate in the Cozy Hole, but can't help noticing how sad he is. The kids all band together to try help him find a new way to take flight.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • "Fungus Among Us" is a rare Miss Spider story in which Wiggle can be seen without his cap on.

      • Berry, the crane fly who serves at the lifeguard at the Taddy Puddle, appears for the first time in "Ground Bound." He speaks with a bit of an Australian accent and uses several Australian phrases, including "wonky" (wobbly or loppsided), "mates" (friends) and "ripper" (fantastic). He also sometimes refers to the kids as little "bities," apparently in jest, as "bities" generally refers only to biting insects such as mosquitoes. Additionally, Bounce uses the phrase "good on ya'" (well done), when talking to Berry.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Michael Stokes is the writer for both stories and Kathy Paulin-Lougheed is the storyboard artist. Lynn Reist the director for the first story and Neil Affleck is the director for the second.

      • This marks the first time someone says the titles for the episodes. Also with this episode comes a change in the format for the closing credits. They now run a bit longer and in a smaller font. Additionally, storyboard artists are credited individually for stories and guest characters are credited on a separate screen by both voice actor and character name.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Bounce: Hey, Wiggle. Watch this! (He bounces on some mushrooms.) I'm a fun guy too!
        Wiggle: This isn't funny, Bounce.

        Bounce reprises a joke first made by Dragon in "Stumped!," when Dragon, Pansy, Holley and Miss Spider were out on a mushroom safari.
