Beetleworx

A Spinner without its toon shell

Spinners are a variety of Beetleworx. They are spider-like robots with shells covering their torso and they are equipped with buzz saws among other weapons. They can be found in Tomorrow City and Lonesome Manor. In Tomorrow City, they look like the instrument from Treasure Planet, while in Lonesome Manor, their shells are loosely based off of the spiders that appeared in the 1933 short The Mad Doctor.

StrategiesEdit

Spinners are a little more aggressive than Hoppers in Epic Mickey. An easy way to defeat a Spinner is to thin out its shell, then attack its weak point with a Spin once it falls over. This must be done twice to defeat it. Alternatively, it is possible to slowly sneak up behind one and Spin its weak point before it even paints in its shell, but it can be difficult, especially when it's not alone.

These, Bashers, and Tankers are dangerous during the battle with the Mad Doctor, where it is a good idea to have enough TV or Watch Sketches to distract them and erase the red toon eye on the Beetleworx Generator. It is advised to avoid them at all costs.

The scrapped Tea Cup variant that was going to be used in the first game appears in the Train Tunnels (only in the Wii version) after beating Prescott's Mech. An unused variant appears in the credits, based on Toad of The Wind in the Willows.
