The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Animated Film


The Very Hungry Caterpillar In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and… Pop! Out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar. He started to look for some food. On Monday he ate through one apple. But he was still hungry. On Tuesday he ate through two pears. But he was still hungry. On Wednesday he ate through three plums. But he was still hungry. On Thursday he ate through four strawberries. But he was still hungry. On Friday he ate through five oranges. But he was still hungry. On Saturday he ate through… one piece of chocolate cake… one ice-cream cone… one pickle… one slice of Swiss cheese… one slice of salami… one lollipop… one piece of cherry pie… one sausage… one cupcake… and one slice of watermelon. That night he had a stomach-ache! The next day was Sunday again. The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf and after that he felt much better. Now he wasn’t hungry any more and he wasn’t a little caterpillar any more. He was a BIG, fat caterpillar. He built a small house, called a cocoon, around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks. Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon pushed his way out and… he was a beautiful butterfly!

    The Hungry Caterpillar has always been a favourite in every class in all my years of teaching. It is so much more than a story too. It teaches life cycles, days of the week, sequencing, counting and colours! Fabulous!

    Thank you so much for uploading this! I remember back then when I was like 5 years old, at my Great Grandmother’s house, I used to remember ordering the Disney DVD on this! I was watching these cute shorts! My favorites were This, and I see a song! While eating some delicious raviolis with my family! Sadly, I lost the DVD, and even worse, My Great Grandmother died in Very early 2016. However, 3 days ago, Me and my mom ordered this at We waited 2 more days. So yesterday, I got my love back! Thank you so much! Love this DVD! Definitely Recommend it!

    It took us solely 3 months and three weeks to complete Stage One of this reading tutorial “Wamzοzο Loli” (Gοοgle it). The learning skills of my very own girl have drastically improved. I keep plenty of cash and don`t have to register my daughter in a few of the high-priced reading course for young ones…

    I LO VE

  80. wileyk209zback says:

    I'm surprised the caterpillar didn't eat the empty eggshell after hatching. Real-life caterpillars typically do that, as the shell contains nutrients that help them grow. Some times of caterpillars, after shedding when they grow, will eat their old molted skin as well, such as the Monarch caterpillar!

    Best book ever and green eggs and ham. Or 1 fish 2 fish.. Lots of good kids books c: i tought myself to read as a kid and i had a big book with all kinds of poems and stories like jack and jill even cinderella. Aesops fables i think it is. I still have it too and now read it to my kids. I think i enjoy it more than them! reading is very good. You can barely even enjoy searching the web without reading!

  89. Carbonated Water says:

  93. ガチャものSimplified Addiction says:

    This brings back all my memories, this was rn the first book I actually wanted to read as a kid and is what inspired me for animating stories. Well, at least when I get my apple pen so I can. But still, this is probably the root of my memories and probably for many others as well.
