Fleischer Studios (1936)

The Cobweb Hotel is a 1936 American short film directed by Dave Fleischer and produced by Max Fleischer and is one of the short films that belongs to the Color Classics film series. The setting is said to be one of the Fleischer’s desks, which the spider used to open the hoax hotel.

Mr. Spider runs the Cobweb Hotel (where flies check in, but don’t check out) in an abandoned writing desk. When newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Fly arrive on their honeymoon, they discover that the “hotel” is, in fact, Mr. Spider’s larder. However, Mr. Fly is the flyweight boxing champion, and while he battles the evil spider, Mrs. Fly frees the other “guests” while extracting a terrible revenge on their host.
