Miss Flora Spider is a main character in Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends. She is a yellow-coloured spider.


Miss Spider is the considerate mother of the eight spider children. She often teaches the kids life lessons after they have made mistakes. Miss Spider is also very aware of her children's feelings. Despite being the titular character of the series, she rarely assumes the role of the protagonist and is absent for several episodes. Description

"Miss Spider is the quintessential mom: warm-hearted, open, and extremely generous. Instead of eating other insects like most Spiders, she chooses to carefully prepare vegetarian meals for her family. For Miss Spider, motherhood is serious business. She diligently tries to administer the right balance of discipline and care to her kids. Knowing firsthand how powerful and transforming the gift of kindness can be, she shares this gift with both her natural and adopted children as well as all those around her."


Miss Spider is mostly a yellow color. She has eight green legs, four of which are primarily used as arms. She also has two green eyes with blue-black pupils and red hair. On her back is a black diamond pattern.


Miss Spider appears in nearly every episode of the series. She first appeared in the TV movie, Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Kids. Her first official appearance was in the series premiere, I'll Fly Away, and her last appearance was in the series finale, Cob Fog. She is absent in several episodes; her first absence is in Giddy Up Bug and her final absence is in Master Mantis.
