Storyline

The adventures of freelance photographer Peter Parker, who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, discovered he had gained superpowers, such as super-strength and agility and the ability to climb sheer walls and ceilings. After inventing a super-sticky web serum, he donned a red-and-black costume, and began fighting crime as the superhero Spider-Man. During the day, Parker worked for the Daily Bugle and skinflint editor J. Jonah Jameson. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

In this series, it is actually J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson who coin the name "Spider-Man" and give Peter the idea for the costume. Where Peter gets the costume and material to build the web-shooters is never fully explained. See more »

Goofs

When Peter is climbing around his Aunt May's house, it's obvious he's climbing on a giant picture of the house, because in scenes where he climbs down poles, his hands don't grip them. See more »

Available on CED Videodisc
28 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is available on RCA CED Videodisc, RCA's videodisc format from 1981-1986. I am watching it right now with my son on CED. You can find the discs and machines at on the web at CED Central. Was originally made for TV, so it has a lot of actors that appeared mainly in television productions. The 70's standard of special effects may seem dated, but it has it's own charm for younger generations and nostalgia for those from the time period. Actually, I find the low tech special effects easier on the eyes than the computer wizardry of today. I look at the digital effects of today and the imagery seems thin and repulsive. Live action blue screen and low tech crawling up the side of the building when its on the flat simpler, but the imagery is richer and more full. I find that more appealing to suspending my sense of disbelief.
