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 season were originally commissioned by ABC, previous animated Marvel ventures were little more than basic animation of static images but ABC invested a lot of money in this series, the idea being that this would be akin to Johnny Quest in terms of limited animation. This proved to be too much to cope with as after making just one season the original animation studio, Grantray-Lawrence Animation, filed for bankruptcy. Krantz Films, the company who at the time was acting as distributor, fulfilled the rest of the contract by taking on the animation of the second season themselves, as cheaply as possible, using as many of the assets from their other animated show, rocket robin hood, as possible. A third season was then commissioned to bring the number of episodes up to the syndication standard of 52 episodes and get some of the lost money back from rerun packages. See more »

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 »

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)
