Relationships

Anne

Main article: Anne and Sprig's Relationship

At first, Sprig sees Anne as the so-called "beast," but they later settle to be friends after she saved him from a giant Red Mantis and introducing herself to him. Spited, finding out she is friendly, becomes good friends with her. Throughout the show, Sprig learns about Anne's past, and tries to be a friend that she can compare to her old "friends."

Ivy

Sprig and Ivy are known to be close friends with one another. They are occasional sparring partners, and often tease each other by attempting to ambush the other frog and successfully tackle them to the ground. When their guardians Hop Pop and Felicia attempted to set them up on a date involving a ritual dance that would allow them to be wedded, they instead chose to discard it and run off into the forest to have fun together as friends. But after dealing with killer Love Doves and saving their families, Sprig then came to realize he actually fell in love with Ivy.

Hop Pop Plantar

Sprig is shown to be caring and loves his grandparent but sometimes his views contradicts with Hop Pop's which lead to occasional arguments. In "Sprig Vs. Hop Pop," Sprig is angered by Hop Pop not reading his suggestions and rather burning them which lead them to compete in the Plantar Family Challenge over who gets to run the farm.

Role in the series

From the start of the series, Sprig starts off as being considered something of a strange kid in the town of Wartwood. Over the course of the first season, however, this begins to change through the influence of Anne Boonchuy while also changing her perspective as well. Along with the rest of the Plantars, they slowly begin to gain some respect from the town with many people looking at Sprig as the "fun Plantar."

One of the story arcs in season one involves Sprig's personal relationships. In "Hop Luck," he ends up getting engaged to Maddie Flour, albeit forcibly by Anne in an effort to get a bit of dough. Later on in "Dating Season," Sprig is revealed to be friends with Ivy Sundew, an old acquaintance. At the end of the episode, Sprig suddenly realizes that he is in love with Ivy and makes it his goal, through the encouragement of Anne, to admit his feelings to her. While Maddie makes spare appearances, Sprig still brings her up in a resigned manner. While he likes her, he considers her too weird and creepy. It is not until the episode "Cursed!" when he finally breaks up with her and learns that despite her weirdness, she simply wants to be friends with him and he accepts her. In "Anne of the Year," he and Ivy are finally able to admit their feelings for one another.

Sprig also spends numerous amounts of time learning from his mistakes and maturing somewhat. In "Sprig Vs. Hop Pop", he learns to be more accepting of rules and in "Trip to the Archives" he realizes that even though he would rather have fun, he should be more concerned with helping Anne with her problems instead.
