It was released by by Creator/HannaBarbera and Sagittarius Productions and featured a screenplay by Earl Hamner, Jr. (''Series/TheWaltons'') and music by Music/TheShermanBrothers (''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', ''Film/MaryPoppins''). The film was reasonably well-reviewed by critics (74% fresh on RottenTomatoes), though endured some complaints regarding the quality of the animation and the music. [[CreatorBacklash Notably, E.B. White himself was disappointed by the film.]] This did not stop it from becoming a popular success, enjoying strong popularity on VHS and television.

* DeadpanSnarker: Templeton. It helps that he's voiced by Paul Lynde in the 1973 film and by Creator/SteveBuscemi in the 2006 live action film.

* InkSuitActor: Charlotte's facial features seem to vaguely resemble those of Debbie Reynolds, who provided her voice. The same can be said for Templeton and his voice actor Paul Lynde.

In 2006, a live-action adaptation was released. This one was Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, thanks in part to remaining largely faithful to the source material and also, in part, due to a moving score by Music/DannyElfman. A video game based on this film was released for computer, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS and was reasonably well-reviewed, avoiding TheProblemWithLicensedGames.

** In the live action film there's this moment where Charlotte is trying to get Ike the horse involved in a meeting involving Wilbur:
--->'''Charlotte''': Ike, this meeting involves every one of us.\\
'''Ike''': I just have...trouble looking at you. That's all.\\
'''Charlotte''': Well, this isn't about me, this is about Wilbur. And for the record, my view of you isn't exactly a treat, either.

Wilbur. Ike tells Charlotte that he has difficulty looking at you. That's all.\\
'''Charlotte''': Well, this isn't about me, this is about Wilbur. And for
her straight in the eyes. Charlotte retorts "For the record, my view of you isn't exactly a treat, treat either."

* WhatsInItForMe: It's a continued theme in at least the animated movie that Templeton repeatedly asks this question, and is repeatedly answered with ''very'' strong incentives. One has to wonder why Templeton hasn't learned to expect it. Only once is Templeton ''not'' threatened - and that's the final time with promises of miles of food at the fair.

** It's less out-of-nowhere in the book, where the {{Omniscient Narrator}} tells us early on that "the rat had no morals, no decency, no milk of rodent kindness, no compunctions, no higher feeling, no friendliness, no anything." But in the adaptations, without that passage, it's slightly jarring.
