Spooktober: Growing Up Creepie (2006)

With The Hub changing formats to Discovery Family later this month, it would be appropriate to bring back one of Discovery Kids' oddest cartoons.

Growing Up Creepie tells the story of the titular orphan, raised by insects in an abandoned mansion. She can't reveal that she has no human parents per se, otherwise, she's likely to end up in an orphanage or foster care, it would appear.

Producer Mike Young nowadays is working with the French studio, Moonscoop, and at last check, Creepie's current home is the online network, Kabillion, which has an On Demand channel on Time Warner Cable (check your cable systems). Since a lot of shows have more than one cable home these days (i.e. Family Feud), why not have DF welcome Creepie home in time for Halloween?

Anyway, here's the episode, "Attack of the Wasp Zombies":

Rating: C.

I thought it was an interesting premise, but Creepie seemed more like a lost cousin of the Addams Family than a bug child.

Or more like a soul sister to Lydia from Beetlejuice.
