Lucas the Spider Creator Set to Become a Millionaire

Joshua Slice makes a fortune selling a plush toy.

3D animation artist Joshua Slice landed a huge Youtube hit with is cute Lucas the Spider videos. Now he is a millionaire, but not through Youtube ads. As reported, Mr. Slice created a talking Lucas the Spider plush toy up for pre-sale since late May.

The plushie as the Lucas the Spider toy is affectionately called has sold 40,000 units in 10 days. Teespring, the online marketplace the plushie is on offer, projects a revenue for Joshua Slice of $1.2 million in the 30-day pre-sale period.

Joshua Slice's background includes work on Pixar and Disney’s Zootopia and Big Hero 6. He has seen his cute little spider rack up over 2 million followers and more than 100 million views in just six months.

Joshua plans to use the returns to pay for a college fund for his nephew and character namesake, Lucas, who also provides the voice for the beloved character. Proceeds will also be made to charities which provide no-cost legal representation to survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault, as well as going towards further animations of the internet’s new favorite character.

Joshua says, “Lucas the Spider started as a curiosity for whether spiders could, in fact, be cute. To bring Lucas to life by way of a soft lovable plushie that contains the voice of Lucas has been an exciting part of a very unexpected journey. We’re very thankful that so many people could come together over the unexpected love for a spider. The fact that Lucas can also provide a future for my nephew, the original Lucas, as well as charities we support is really rewarding.”
