Kumo to Tulip (くもとちゅうりっぷ, Kumo to Chūrippu, lit. "Spider and Tulip") is a short animated Japanese film made in 1943 by Kenzo Masaoka. It is a story about a ladybug being chased by a black-faced spider. The spider catches the ladybug, but then it rains, the spider drowns, and the ladybug is freed by a friendly fly.

In 2001, the Japanese magazine Animage elected Kumo to Tulip one of the greatest anime productions of all time.[1]

The short-film was screened at Locarno Film Festival and at Barbican Centre's Barbican Animation Show.[2][3]
