In this series, Spider-Man forms a close friendship and alliance with two superheroes, Iceman and Firestar. Together, the group, informally known as "The Spider Friends", battle crime in New York City. Along the way, they not only face Spider-Man's own enemies, but also other major Marvel Comics villians like the Red Skull and Doctor Doom while also meeting other heroes of the Marvel Universe.

In the first season episode "Videoman", the ending was vague as to whether or not the villain of the episode (Electro) died at the end. Being a Saturday morning cartoon, they made up for it by having Electro make a cameo appearance in the third season episode "Attack of the Arachnoid" (in a super-powered jail cell, no less!). Only three villains made return appearances after their first appearance on "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends": Magneto (In a brief flashback in the episode "A Firestar is Born"), Electro (As mentioned above), and Videoman ( Who appeared in "Videoman", "The Origin of Iceman, and "The Education of a Superhero"). Doctor Octopus was the only super-villain to cross over from "The Incredible Hulk" to "Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends" (both cartoons were on NBC on Saturday mornings at the same time). The Human Torch was supposed to be one of the Spider-Friends, but NBC didn't want children to think it was okay to play with fire. That is why Firestar was created, having similar powers, but not having the appearance of being on fire. See more »
Spider Man and his amazing friends has given me the greatest memeories i had when i watched it. I remember this programme when i bought a video which contained some of the episodes, i remember the characters Iceman and the Firestar. I give this programme a great score 10 out of 10 because it is a programme that brings the memories back to you.
