Growing Up Creepie (2006-2008) is an animated television series made by Mike Young Productions and produced by Discovery Kids. In other countries the series is simply titled Creepie.As told in opening introduction and in the episode "Creepie Crawling", Creepie was an orphan left on doorstep of the Dweezwold Mansion, which is home to a family of various insects. The family take her in and raise her as one of their own. However, she must now adjust to a life surrounded by a society of entemophobic humans as she attends Middlington Middle School and keeps her home life secret in order to protect both herself and her family.
This gets kind of weird when mistreatment of bugs (and their reaction) becomes an issue, ranging from offhand comments to becoming the basis of a plot. Raised by bugs or not, you'd think someone other than Creepie would notice.
Extreme Omnivore: Said frog was a previously dead frog reanimated as a cyborg. She either didn't notice or didn't care and ate the mechanical parts too, as is evident when she burps and light shines out of her eyes.
Most, if not all of them are a very diverse array of insects, so they're adopted at best. Plus, he's a mosquito and she's a Praying Mantis...
Fake Band: In Season 2, Episode 8: "Going For Brogue", The 3 Goth Kids formed their own rockband calling themselves "Plaid Vapors", with Raven the guitarist, Misery the pianist, & Morpheus the drummer. Their chance to play at the school dance may have got canceled due to it's bagpipers gone batty, but believe it or not their 1st gig was a huge success. This was in large part in their friend Creepie Creecher & her mastery of the bagpipes, Raven Mcfadden herself was so proud of her that night. What she also told Creepie that the bagpipes itself contain the ghost of her great great great great great grandfather Angus Mcfadden, born in Scotland no doubt.
In One Ear, Out The Other: In "Night of Fright" Gnat is buzzing around Creepie trying to aggravate her. He finally succeeds when he flies into her right ear and emerges out her left ear seconds later cackling "Anybody home?".
Instant Fan Club: "The Return of Tarantula Boy", when Melanie, Carla, and several other kids know of Creepie's date with Tarantula Boy.
No Social Skills: Chris-Alice was shocked after Creepie admitted the truth behind her talking to inanimate objects excuse, unfortunately Ms. Monseratte didn't believe in her story and she had to visit the principal's office for therapy.
This is never brought up again. Chris-Alice must be convinced it was due to her stress over the school event.
Odd Friendship: It's unknown why Creepie and Chris-Alice are friends, having clashing personalities and hardly anything in common.
Not to mention Chris-Alice hates bugs and her dad is the local bug exterminator.
You know what they say about keeping your enemies close.
Satellite Love Interest: Skipper for Creepie. At first she was only interested in him because she thought he was a half-spider hybrid and she lost all interest in him once she found out he wasn't. Then later she became interested in him again only because his adoptive mother is a spider.
They have something in common after all, since they're both raised by bugs. Even before she found out, she had fun on their second date.
Scary Black Man: When Budge is introduced in the first episode, he appears to be this, but is quickly subverted.
Stern Teacher: Ms. Monseratte, She's always spying on Creepie and the other students at Middlington Middle School and is a stickler for rules. She's obsessed with cleanliness. She will usually hand out a detention slip if a student even so much as accidentally bump into her. Creepie's homeroom teacher, Dr. Pappas like Ms. Monseratte is stern too.
Strong Ants: The Red Fire Ants, led by Creepie's Uncle Jerry.
The Worm That Walks: In one episode, the principal Ms. Monseratte had to visit Creepie's home. In an attempt to appear "normal", Creepie's bug family crammed into a bathrobe, with a speaker attatched, and called themselves her "mom".
