Has anyone seen my glass eye? The darn thing keeps popping out.

–Miss Crawly

INFO


Miss Crawly is a female iguana and supporting protagonist of the movie Sing. She also stars in the Sing home release-exclusive short Love At First Sight.

She is voiced by director Garth Jennings.

Appearance

Miss Crawly is an anthropomorphic iguana with spines from her head to her long tail. She is predominantly green scaled, with white scales on her wrinkly throat. Miss Crawly's left eye is green, while her right eye is made of brown-colored glass and often falls out. She wears a green cap, a yellow dress with dark yellow flowers, and white shoes. When dating the bull in Love At First Sight, Miss Crawly wears a white and pink dress hat with dark pink feathers and brim, a matching pink feathered boa, and an iridescent purple dress.

In Christmas-themed TV Spots, Miss Crawly wears a Santa hat, a plaid dress that resembles wrapping paper, and a red present bow.

Personality

Miss Crawly is a caring person who enjoys working for Buster Moon as best she can. She is intensely loyal to her employer and sticks by him even after the destruction of the Moon Theater. She is also a capable music teacher, as demonstrated by her successful tutoring of Johnny after Buster insists that he play the piano. However, Miss Crawly often makes mistakes, either due to her age or because her glass eye pops out at the worst times. She also reacts badly when she gets something wrong, worrying about being fired despite Buster's obvious reluctance to do so.

Biography

Sing

Miss Crawly served Buster Moon for an unknown number of years, and was notably present when a younger Buster inherited and opened the Moon Theater. Even as the theater fell into hard times, she happily worked for him as other employees complained about bounced checks. When Buster decided to host a singing competition in a last-ditch effort to save his theater, Miss Crawly designed the flyers advertising the event. However, her glass eye popped out and bounced on the keyboard twice, adding two extra zeroes to the promised $1,000 prize. Distracted with grabbing her eye, Miss Crawly failed to notice the printed flyers had a typo. While she intended to distribute them throughout the city, a sudden gust of wind did Miss Crawly's work for her.

The next day, Miss Crawly notified Buster that a huge line of hopeful contestants formed outside the Moon Theater. Together, the two judged each audition, and after Buster selected his finalists, Miss Crawly managed backstage affairs along with Meena, a failed contestant. In addition, Miss Crawly would provide piano lessons for Johnny at Buster's request. However, Buster's friend Eddie finally pointed out how the original fliers promised a larger prize than intended. Miss Crawly was horrified at her mistake and terrified of being fired, but Buster instead planned to gather $100,000, eventually settling on persuading Eddie's grandmother Nana Noodleman to donate some of her wealth to the competition. In addition, another mishap with Miss Crawly's glass eye resulted in the contestant Pete becoming badly injured, requiring his hospitalization. Eventually, Buster decided to replace him with Meena.

Though Nana Noodleman had no respect for Buster or Eddie, she agreed to provide more prize money if she was impressed by Buster's planned rehearsal. However, a trio of gangster bears, previously swindled by the contestant Mike, trespassed in the theater and demanded the prize money in exchange for Mike's life. The bears' arrival began a disastrous chain of events that culminated in the Moon Theater's destruction. His spirit crushed, Buster resigned himself to a life of car washing, Miss Crawly remaining his dutiful employee. However, Meena's beautiful singing inspired Buster to take one last shot, and Miss Crawly helped him and his performers construct a stage in the theater's ruins. As each singer carried out a show stopping performance, Miss Crawly looked upon them with pride, particularly Johnny. Among the ecstatic audience was a pleased Nana Noodleman, who funded the reconstruction of the Moon Theater and returned the property to Buster. Miss Crawly was present among those who attended the grand opening of the New Moon Theater.
