Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale is a 2006 American direct-to-DVD computer-animated comedy-drama film written and directed by Michael Schelp and produced by his company Spark Plug Entertainment. It was released on November 21, 2006.


The story follows the adventures of Walter Pembroke III (Walt for short), a young and native piglet who constantly tells lies in attempts to get himself out of trouble. His best friend is Tiffany, a spider who believes that honesty is the best policy. Walt soon meets Noiman Ja Rahr, a tricky and hypocritical snake who claims to have big plans for the pig. But when Walt follows Ja Rahr to a place called Viperwood, he soon learns that Ja Rahr is not what he seems.

Why It Sucks

  1. This movie is a rip-off of the children's novel Charlotte's Web by E. B. White, which had been adapted into an animated movie in 1973 and was being made into a live-action film around the exact same time that this movie came out. Walt is a rip-off of Wilbur and Tiffany is a rip-off of Charlotte.
  2. Atrocious, horrifying CGI animation with many jerky movements.
  3. Terrible character designs. The horses have no manes or tails, the chickens look more like ducks, and the textures are poorly made overall.
  4. The spiders are stereotypes: Tiffany speaks in a stereotypical Scottish/Jamaican accent, and her friend Crystal is a sassy black woman stereotype. The horses are also racist snobs who hate the spiders, and Noiman Ja Rahr's friend Venom is a valley girl stereotype.
  5. Some things don't make sense (for example, like, why would the TV come to life and try to eat Walt and his friends all of the sudden?)
  6. Inadequate editing.
  7. The vehicles that look very identical to Sparky, Gracie, Speedy, Diesel, and Fender from A Car's Life: Sparky's Big Adventure are just very recently reused models from that movie. The desert roads, and Norbert the gas pump is also stolen from it. Furthermore, both movies were released the same date, which could explain the stolen elements.
  8. Terrible and annoying voice acting, especially from characters like Walt.
  9. Lame pop-culture references ("My spidey senses are tingling!" and "I see dead chickens...") and puns ("Let the bee be!").
  10. Mismatched lip-syncing, most likely due to the atrocious CGI animation.
  11. Many of the scenes can be very boring.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The plot is so bizarre that it's unpredictable. Sound familiar?
  2. Tiffany is a likable heroine because she wants to protect Walt from danger and warns him of the consequences of lying.
  3. The Japanese director of the movie that Walt stars in actually speaks fluent Japanese.
  4. Even though Walter is annoying and unlikable, he at least learns his lesson in the end that being honest and telling the truth is important because it's the right thing to do.
  5. The scene where Walt gets blown away is pretty funny.


  • During the production time before release, Larry Robinson, an American voice actor for dubbing Japanese live-action and anime television series, died after an unknown cause at age 76 on October 1, 2006.
