Synopsis by Karla Baker
This half hour length animated special tells the "real" story behind the famous children's song "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." I.B. Spider (voiced by Malcolm-Jamal Warner) is sick and tired of being called Itsy Bitsy just because he is so small. He shows everyone that he isn't short on bravery when he climbs up a water spout to save his friends who have been caught in a glass jar. Patti Labelle sings the title song and Jim Carrey is the voice of the exterminator. This video is from the Real Story Collection and is the winner of the Golden Sheaf Award for Best Animation 1991 at the Yorktown Short Film and Video Festival.
