Storyline

Student Peter Parker is bitten by a spider while witnessing an experiment in radiology and finds that the radiation has transferred the properties of the spider (ability to scale walls and swing on webs) to him with a strength proportional to his body. Peter now has super spider powers and is so preoccupied with their possibilities that he fails to help the police stop a thief, who later robs the house of Peter's guardians, Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and kills Ben. Furious, Peter tracks down the culprit at a warehouse, and, on seeing the man's face, Peter realizes that if he had acted earlier to help stop the crook, Ben would be alive now. So, Peter vows to use his new powers to fight crime, as the super-heroic Spider-Man. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Quotes

[theme song]
Chorus: Spider-Man, Spider-Man, / Does whatever a spider can / Spins a web, any size / Catches thieves just like flies / Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man! / Is he strong? Listen, bud, / He's got radioactive blood / Can he swing from a thread? / Take a look overhead! / Hey there! There goes the Spider-Man! / In the chill of the night, at the scene of the crime, / like a streak of light, he arrives just in time! / Spider-Man, Spider-Man, / Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man / Wealth and fame...

It may have been cheap, but what's changed?
4 December 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

Yeah, ARP were cheap and probably had little regard for their audience - but really, what's changed? Animators like Chuck Jones may have poured their souls into their work, but the execs still treated their work as 'just another product'. One of them (just can't recall his name) sat in throne and would yell "Role the Garbage!" before previewing the cartoons. The Warner brothers, according Jones, didn't even know what cartoons were their's - they thought they had Mickey Mouse! I'll still take the 60's Spidey over any other cartoon version. For all its datedness, for the reused shots and plots, and perposterous story lines it still feels like it has more heart. The other versions just feel stale, less imaginitive. (I know that sounds odd) Plus you not only had an incredible theme song, but an incredible "score" to boot. I have been watching it on Teletoon just to listen to the music - if wish they'd put out a comprehensive CD compilation. If only cartoons were scored like this nowadays! (probably where most of the budget went actually)
