Itsy Bitsy Spider is a 1992 American animated fantasy-comedy short film directed by Matthew O'Callaghan, written by Michael O'Donoghue and stars Frank Welker as the titular spider. Based on the homonymous rhyme, the short film was released along with the film Bébé's Kids. It was rated PG by the MPAA for sci-fi cartoon violence.
A young country spider Itsy befriends Leslie McGroarty, a perky young city girl who takes piano lessons from the music teacher (incidentally, she learns to play the real rhyme) and her cat, Langston. When Itsy frightens the teacher, she calls the Exterminator, who tries to kill Itsy with the toxic machine blower, but it causes pain and destruction to the instructor's house, and the Exterminator turns out to be a heavily armed android. The Exterminator's method uses more extreme weapons, escalating from poison and vacuums to guns and explosives, that eventually destroys the instructor's house. Itsy finally reunites with Leslie (who senses to leave the house when the Exterminator uses his deadly weapons) and head home to the big city with the bicycle.
