Episode Summary

The Bug Flu; A Time Telling Tale
The Bug Flu: While Miss Spider's buglets are out playing, Spiderus and Spindella are busy doing some gathering. Spiderus is getting bored and when he takes a tumble, he pretends that he has sprained his left third leg. The kids spring to help, but soon catch wind of Spiderus's trick. Spindella is wise to it too and decides to invite the kids for a small party to thank them for their help. The kids are convinced that the party will be boring and Dragon gets the idea of faking sick to get out of going. He pretends to have the bug flu, but his parents soon figure out the trick. While the others enjoy the party, Dragon is stuck at home pretending to be sick. He soon finds that his plan is beginning to backfire.

A Time Telling Tale: Squirt's a very busy bug with a lot of friends, but has trouble keeping track of time. He gets so busy that he's not on time for bedtime or dinner and is often late to school. Miss Spider and Holley decide to help him by building a sundial in the Village Square, which will help the entire community. Yet when it comes time for his friend Eddy's hatchday, Squirt is late again when the sun goes behind a cloud.moreless
