Kids fight giant spider in cave

I'd estimate this was probably a 70s-80s adventure film, and the story follows a family who ends up getting separated in a cave.

The kids are with some furry animals I think (like an Ewok?) and a giant spider comes after them. Some of the kid(s) get stuck in its web and they have to fight it off.

Sorry for the vagueness!

Maybe the two-part episode "The Perils of Punky" of the TV show "Punky Brewster"?

"As the group heads deeper into the cave, the come across a giant spider web. All the kids except Punky become trapped in the web; they were the lucky ones; Punky gets attacked and taken down by a giant spider."
