Wilbur enlists the help of several barnyard animals to help him avoid death again and becomes quite a hit at the county fair because of the intricate webs spun by Charlotte the spider.

The review of this Movie prepared by Kathryn N.

Hanna-Barbera, not an entertainment company known for subtlety, put together this passable 1973 dramatization of E.B. White's immortal classic about a pig named Wilbur who fears ending up on the dinner table at the end of the harvest season, and the sweet, intelligent spider named Charlotte who devises a plan to save him. The animation is simple, not at all high tech, and the original songs may not be to every grownup's taste, but this is a nice introduction to the story that should appeal to most little ones. Gibson voices Wilbur to innocent perfection, Reynolds was a solid choice for Charlotte, Moorehead makes a great goose, and Lynde steals the show as Templeton the "what's in it for me?" rat.
