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 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.
Sprig and Anne have a very strong friendship. Even after a slight misunderstanding at first meeting, they were able to quickly bond with one another due to their similar personalities. They continuously refer to themselves as "Spranne" and even have a catchphrase: "Spranne against the world!" Sprig is very protective of Anne. While he initially viewed her as a pet, their relationship has since changed to that of siblings. Sometimes Sprig will look to Anne for advice and clearly likes to confide in her about things. They have zero romantic attraction with one another, though in Sprig's case it appears to be solely based on age as revealed in "Bizarre Bazaar". ("Yeah, she's way too old for me.").
Hop Pop Plantar
Sprig always challenges Hop Pop's authority and considers him too old fashioned for his more rebellious beliefs. However, he does love and care about him, most likely because he is the only parental figure he has. He simply wants Hop Pop to look at him as an independent person while also cherishing their familial bond such as in "Fishing Trip". Sprig will sometimes try to annoy Hop Pop into doing things for him; usually winning out. While he does take advantage of him, he often comes around to apologizing and understanding why his decisions and authority is important.
Sprig and Polly have a typical sibling rivalry. Sprig hates having to step down for his younger sister, but as revealed in "Civil Wart", he understands why he needs to be accommodating for her. He does care a great deal about her though he does admit that she can be pretty weird at times. Sometimes Sprig will take a commanding role over Polly whenever they are up to their usual schemes. Despite their contrasting personalities, Sprig understands Polly great deal and is very supportive of her endeavors such as in "Girl Time".
Sprig has been friends with Ivy for a long time. Their relationship has been very mutual, but by the end of "Dating Season", he fell in love with her. Since then, he has been nervous about telling her his feelings, but still maintained a friendly and approachable demeanor. They finally confess their feelings in "Anne of the Year" and it is implied that they have have begun dating since.
Sprig was put off by Maddie and her unusual behavior. As a matter of fact, he was outright frightened of her. Nevertheless, he displayed a loyalty to her when they were betrothed. When he broke up with her, he felt guilty about not doing it in front of her. He eventually learns to accept her strange behavior and is glad that they are just friends.
