Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends (sometimes shortened to Sunny Patch) is a Canadian children's television series based on the children's books by David Kirk. The series originally aired on Teletoon in Canada and Nickelodeon in the United States.[3]


The series is set in "Sunny Patch" (a miniature town made of common forest items), populated by anthropomorphic bugs, and primarily centers around the Spider family. The episodes follow the children's adventures playing in Sunny Patch and learning life lessons, such as being kind to others, being imaginative, having responsibility, and being curious about the world around them.

The series was first announced on February 17, 2004 as part of a Callaway Arts & Entertainment press release.[4] On March 19 of the same year, it was reported that the show was slated to premiere in August 2004 and that Canadian animation studio Nelvana was currently producing it.[5] The series premiered in August 2004 on Teletoon in Canada and in September 2004 on Nickelodeon in the United States.

On June 20, 2005, Nickelodeon ordered a twenty-five-episode second season of the series.[6] The second season premiered on March 13, 2006, with the episode "Captain Sunny Patch."[7] A third season followed and Teletoon aired the show's last episode in June 2007.
