Itsy Bitsy Spider is a 1992 American animated science fantasy-comedy short film directed by Matthew O'Callaghan and written by Michael O'Donoghue, loosely based on the homonymous rhyme and released along with the film Bébé's Kids. It stars Frank Welker as the titular spider, Jim Carrey as the Exterminator. It was rated PG by the MPAA for sci-fi cartoon violence.
Country spider Itsy befriends Leslie McGroarty, a 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 destroys the instructor's house with flamethrowers. Itsy reunites with Leslie and head home to the big city with the bicycle.
