Itsy Bitsy Spider is a 1992 American animated short directed by Matthew O'Callaghan and written by Michael O'Donoghue, loosely based on the homonymous rhyme and released with the movie Bébé's Kids. It features Frank Welker as the title character, and Jim Carrey as the Exterminator. It was Carrey's 15th film role. It was rated PG by the MPAA for sci-fi cartoon violence.
A spider is the friend of a young girl named Leslie (voiced by Thora Birch) who is taking piano lessons from a very strict instructor (voiced by Andrea Martin) (incidentally, she's learning to play the actual rhyme). When the instructor is frightened by Itsy, she calls an Exterminator, that uses more and more extreme measures to try to kill Itsy, most of which end up causing pain and destruction to the instructor's home, cat and the Exterminator himself, which turns out to be a heavily-armed android (voiced by Phil Hayes). The Exterminator's methods begin to get even more extreme, escalating from poison and vacuums to guns and explosives, until the instructor's house is eventually blown up. Itsy is finally reunited with the girl (who had the sense to get out of the house before the flamethrowers came out), and they go home.
