Episode Summary

Giddy Up Bugs; A Plushy Parable
Giddy Up Bugs: Sawyer, a genuine cowbug, arrives in Sunny Patch with a group of aphids. They're harvesting honeydew and Squirt, Shimmer and Bounce get the go-ahead from Miss Spider to help her out. They agree to live by the cowbug code and work hard to assist her. Ned and Ted, however, on the lookout for an easy snack and decide to rustle Sawyer's aphids for their own purposes.

A Plushy Parable: When Miss Spider and Holley go away for a web-weaving workshop, Pansy has trouble getting to sleep. Grandma Betty tells her a bedtime story about the "pussy willow plushies" -- a type of toy that was popular when Miss Spider was a kid. She then reveals that she still has Miss Spider's one, "Catty," and agrees to lend it to Pansy until Miss Spider returns. Pansy is comforted by the toy, but then devastated when she loses it. Then, when Spiderus finds it and gives it to Ivy as a gift, she faces a dilemma when she learns that it's missing and realizes that it doesn't belong to her.moreless

      • Betty: (to Pansy) I gave a pussy willow plushy to your mom as a hatchday present. She named her doll Catty, and it became her favorite toy, especially when she needed a hug.

      • Pansy: We made you a new plushy. I hope she's special enough.
        Miss Spider: Oh, she's very special! Just like two bugs I know.

      • Ivy: (to Spiderus) I love Daphne and I love you.

      • Spiderus: Ick! A pussy willow plushy. I haven't seen one of these in a bug's age. I never did understand their popularity. Mind you, it is rather... cute. Yes, my dear little Ivy would absolutely love it!

      • Squidge: Dewey, I don't think these ants are real cowbugs.

        Ned: Hoot hoot hoot!
        Dewey: So what do we do?
        Squidge: We make tracks away from these dippy dudes. Don't be scared, Squidge. Sawyer will be looking for us.

        Ted: We may just have to "borrow" those aphids for a while. (snickers)

      • Sawyer: Everybuggy on a round-up works. That's rule number two - "a cowboy is never lazy." Let's get this round-up rolling!

      • Sawyer: (regarding Ned and Ted) Never mind those varmints.

      • Sawyer: How would ya'll like to help me harvest up some of that honeydew?
