Editorial Reviews

Creepie is a girl growing up in Dweezwold Mansion after she was left on the doorstep. Her adopted parents are a praying mantis and mosquito named Caroleena and Vinnie. They send Creepie to middle school, where she interacts with humans for the first time and must learn how to survive with these new "specimens," while still staying true to her buggy upbringing. She must keep her bug family a secret, or she will be forced to live somewhere else and Dweezwold Mansion will be fumigated.

Growing up Creepie is a wonderful program. The previous reviewer did a good job telling you about Creepie and her family, so I'll just say that Creepie is a wonderful role model. She is proud of her family even though they are different and she enjoys being herself without having to follow the crowd.
Creepie's mother is the coolest character of all...a praying mantis! Never fear, though...Caroleena has a strict policy and NO LONGER eats friends or family.
Love this show!

"Growing Up Creepie" is without a doubt the craziest idea for a children's show sold as "educational television" since producer Jean Chalopin managed to sell a 39-episode animated adventure serial involving all of the wildest and most radical theories regarding the mysteries of pre-Columbian South and Central America, including lost civilizations, highly advanced technology, and the lost continent of Mu (Hiva), as an educational program by concluding each episode with a short live action documentary segment explaining the facts or in some cases the theories behind the plot devices used in that episode: the Nazca lines, the lost continent of Mu (Hiva in this show), the Amazons, etc.: The Mysterious Cities of Gold.

"Growing Up Creepie" is no less crazy: a cartoon about the trials and tribulations of a girl raised by bugs (you read that right, "bugs") as she tries to fit in at middle school with students and faculty who've experienced more conventional upbringings, trials such as a reanimated frog corpse on the rampage, a ghost moth, a possessed doll, giant moth creatures preying on campers, a vengeful waterbug, a plague of locusts, Bugfoot, getting sucked into a video game about battling giant mutant millipedes, a half tarantula/half human boy, etc.,...

you know, "the usual".

The "educational" bit comes in at the end when Creepie narrates a short live action documentary segment about the bug or bug-related subject of the just seen "half" episode.

Given the source material, this should have been a five star review, but I had to take off a star for it being one of the worst DVD packagings of a TV show I've ever seen, and I'm being generous at that!

This is a show about a girl who is learning to live in a world full of humans. Why? Because Creepie was raised by her loving family of bugs and arachnids (spiders). This show is entertaining and certainly interesting. There is always a short segment at the end, narrated by Creepie herself, on bugs and how fascinating they can be. She discusses how some bugs can paralyze their victims before swallowing them whole, and the way some can catch other bugs alive and stick them in their nest so that their children can eat them.
And if that creeps you out, you may or may not like this show.
Another thing you might want to know is there is really more to it than meets the eye... for instance, it looks like it might be for younger kids but it could be for younger teens, as well.
The DVD itself does not have as many episodes as a fan would have hoped for. As of now, it looks like the show has been canceled, and the remaining episodes may or may not be released on DVD, which is bad news for everybody. The special features are actually pretty good, and I think that it'd be worth it to buy the DVD for sure.

We saw this once on TV and my daughter just had to have it. This is where we got the best price for it.

This is a great cartoon for kids...not only is it entertaining but there is a subtle message that the kids can learn from. They learn about bugs...and a lesson in morality. (Again the lessons are subtle) My kids love it and unlike some other programs it makes learning fun.

Definitely not a comprehensive compilation of the entire series or even a season but it is still a good collection of select episodes from a good show. Got it for my nieces and nephews. They enjoyed the show when it was on the air and now that it is no longer available on television I think they appreciate having at least a few episodes they can watch whenever they want.

Our daughter discovered this little gem of a series by mistake, and she loved it immediately. We also liked it because it also includes real-world educational information at the end of each episode... which our daughter then tells us about. Great product.

This is a great cartoon for kids as well as adults. My wife is a kid at heart and loves it! I hope that Amazon is able to sell this again very soon!! She was very sad when we could no longer purchase. :(
