Itsy Bitsy Spider - Wisecracking spider on the animated cartoon series THE ITSY BITSY SPIDER/USA/1993-96.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

I.B. Spider's best friend is a little girl named Leslie. Her mother unfortunately befriended the local Exterminator whose passion for his job puts the Itsy Bitsy Spider in constant peril.

The series is based on the 1992 Hyperion Pictures theatrical cartoon short of the same name.

Jim Carrey provided the voice in the theatrical version spouting such lines as ("I'm the Exterminator, here to de-skwirminate, anti-verminate and totally obscurminate your household pest" and "Try this you fly-eaten son of an egg sac!"

The Classic Rhyme

The itsy bitsy spider
Crawled up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider
Crawled up the spout again.

TRIVIA NOTE: A variation of the classic children's rhyme appeared on the sitcom PERFECT STRANGERS when Bronson Pinchot as Myposian immigrant Balki Bartokomous recited the following:

The itsy bitsy scorpion crawled up inside my shirt.
I smashed his little head in and threw him in the dirt.
When his legs stopped wiggling I threw him in my stew.
Cuz I like crunchy insects with pinchers Oh, don't you?
[sung to the tune of 'The Itsy Bitsy Spider']
