Day 199 – Wilbur and Charlotte Bots

Wilbur and Charlotte and the epitome of BFF. MOST. HEART WRENCHING. ENDING. EVER.

Wilbur is all like “They are going to eat me! I’m so totally bummed about that!” and then Charlotte is all “I have a clever plan! We can prolong the inevitable!”.

Orwell, are you taking notes here? ‘Cause this pig book is waaay better than your pig book. I’m just sayin’…..

    In the early days of VCRs, we had a recording of the Charlotte’s Web movie. I watched the movie so many times as a kid that I can STILL repeat large sections of it, and could do the whole movie with a little prompting (don’t prompt me!), including many of the commercials… (Sport Chevy Spectrum anyone? Its got 5 speed shifting, so uplifting!) The odd thing is that I still love the story and recently read it to my son.

    Ok, and while I am at it, how on earth did you do that teeny tiny little Charlotte Bot?!

    Wow, that’s dedication, Sarah! I think I only saw the movie once in school, but I read the book many many times.

    I did Charlotte completely by hand- I just cut out the bits for a bot at about 1/8th the normal size, and then sewed it all up with needle and thread by hand. The most annoying part were the legs. She’s about half the size the kitties for crazy cat lady bot are. One of these days I’m going to have to see what the smallest bot I can do is.

    Great Pig!

    (To quote Charlotte)

    Now I’m going to cry, because I love that book.

    Amazing. This was also one of my favorites as I kid, i read it over and over and over. Your commentary made me laugh today as well. good show!

    OHMYGOODNESS. I didn’t think anything could beat Lizzy and Darcy but…this may. Have you seen the cartoon they made in like the 80s? Surprisingly, it’s great too–and the music makes me all sad when I hear it because I watched it so many times as a kid.

    Very cool. :) Maybe I’ll whip this book out and read it to my kiddos as our next book. :)

    I’ve seen the cartoon- but only once or twice, in school. I’m going to have to have a look for an audio book version of this- this literary week is making me want to dust off some of my favourites!

    God, kudos on the Charlotte by hand. Everytime I try to do tough material by hand I end up with a finger full of needle eye.

  11. Robotgod on 26 Mar 2009 at 6:11 pm #

    the secret is very sharp needles, and I also used the thinnest black vinyl I had kicking around. If you can find needles that don’t flare out too much at the eye, and have a nice, slow gradation between the point and the eye (this generally means a fairly long needle), that helps too.

    ………….and, I’m a sewing nerd.

    1. I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, and am absolutely in love with your cleverly witty bots.
    2. I remember reading Charlotte’s Web in 3rd grade and crying when Charlotte died ( hope I’m not ruining it for anyone ), and to this day I still shed at least one single when I see the movie. Btw, and I’m not ashamed of saying this, own and have watched the movie many times.The one with Dakota Fanning of course, who definitely doesn’t let us down playing Fern.

    That’s absolutely splendid… I love all the eyes on the spider. So glad I happened across this site!
