Episode Summary

What a Tangled Web; Cry Buggie
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

        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.

      • Miss Spider: Eventually, the cloud gets so full that it has to let everything out as
        Squirt: Rain.
        Miss Spider: rain. That's what we call it when a cloud cries. Isn't it, Holley?

        Dragon: Well, I guess it's okay if you're little. But big bugs like me, we don't ever cry.

      • Shimmer: Wow! That was great!
        Dragon: We had fun in every corner of Sunny Patch!

        Squirt: We're going to set the record for having the most fun in one day!
        Bounce: Fun!

      • Pansy: Sorry, Snowdrop. Somebuggy left their old web on the table.

    • NOTES (3)

    • 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.
