Headscratchers: Growing Up Creepie
  • Okay, the more I watch this, the more it bugs me, since the whole show hinges on it and yet it doesn't seem to hold together. In the interest of fairness, I just wanted to ask: 1. All of the insects we see appear to be sentient, and behave accordingly in increasingly obvious ways, yet 2. Only Creepie (and Budge, to a certain extent) seem to be aware of this, meaning 3. Everyone else behaves as if they were, well, bugs. Is there any explanation for this? MST3k Mantra notwithstanding, most if not all of the plots fall apart if I think about this at all. (As of the last episode I saw, "Mom Under Glass", it's my pet theory that Creepie is crazy, but something tells me that that's not supposed to be the answer.)
    • My personal working theory is only a few of the bugs (those shown being understood by humans other than Budge or Creepie, like Creepie's family) are actually speaking english the vast majority are in fact conversing in an insect language Creepie at some point taught to Budge.
  • Um could someone that knows a bit more about insects help me out...shouldn't have a lot of Creepie's "siblings" died years ago due to having short life spans? Especially Nat. A quick google search said Nats live for about 4 months, honestly longer than I thought it was.
  • Caroleena is always threatening to eat her kids to make them stop misbehaving. In the show, Creepie said her mom's diet excludes family members, but Caroleena's bio on the official site says she has eaten family members. So which is it?
    • Forgive me for asking, as I don't remember where it says that, but was it specific about how long she had not been eating family members? It could have meant she isn't anymore, but used to.
  • How could Chris-Alice not notice Mr. Biggles wasn't a cat? Wouldn't she have been tipped off as soon as she touched his scaly skin?
    • Well, let's just say Chris-Alice ain't the most bright blub on the christmas tree...
