* FriendlyNeighborhoodSpider: There is a friendly spider appropriately named "Miss Spider". In the book, she is more of a grandmother-like figure, while in the film she is darker and more gothic, but still all around good.

*** Not sure how class-conscious Mr. Grasshopper is--Centipede aside, he seems to interact just fine with the other insects, especially Mrs. Ladybug, who appears to be middle-class at most. It might be more accurate to say he has a serious suspicion of Centipede's claims (which ends up being justified) but comes to appreciate the lengths to which Centipede is willing to go to save them. Based on his honest, obvious dismay at Centipede's "pesticide" and the violin performance on the peach, it almost looks like Mr. Grasshopper goes through the biggest change in terms of one-on-one relationships.
