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>

Trivia

Two episodes of the series ("Phantom from the Depths of Time" and "Revolt in the Fifth Dimension") heavily recycle animation from episodes "From Menace to Menace" and "Dimentia Five" of the earlier series Rocket Robin Hood (1966) by simply substituting Spider-Man for Rocket Robin Hood on the animated cels.

Goofs

In the opening title sequence of the show, Spider-Man is shown, "in the chill of night", looking out of a window at a jewelry store. The store's sign displays the words "FINE JEWLERY". When Spider-Man swings down and kicks the door open, the sign has become "FINE JEWELRY". See more »

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...

I loved this show when I was little...
4 January 2002 | by (Storrs, CT) – See all my reviews

The problem with comic books today, is that they are waaayy too sophisticated for most kids to comprehend... I read Spiderman when I was 6 and 7 years old (I read it when I was older as well, but I will get to that) and I could follow the stories to some exent, but mostly I read it because the cartoon was soooo cool (much cooler than any later Spiderman incarnations)... the animation was quirky, the voices were very Shatnerian (I think I just invented a word, and I will now use it frequently), but it was fun and it made sense to a young mind.

Now, don't get me wrong about comic books, I really appreciated the more sophisticated stories when I was a teenager, but I have no idea how the medium will gain new fans when you cannot hope to get involved with them until you are at least a teenager (when such things are uncool)... and a lot of the material is too intense for young eyes anyway... maybe a line of comics for younger fans would be good. I dunno, but I feel bad that my kid will likely not have comic book heroes in his life to any meaningful degree... I just wish that cool shows like Bakshi's Spiderman were still on the air to fill in the gaps.
