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.

The character "Firestar," created for this show, proved so popular that she was inserted into the main-line comic-book continuity as part of the super-villain team "The Hellions" in "The Uncanny X-Men" in 1984. She soon got her own mini-series, and as of 2002, is still a main character in "The Mighty Avengers." See more »
So much for his plan to turn the town into Goblin City.
Wrong again, insect. There's more than enough formula here for New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington...
Mona, I'd better stop him before he reaches Anaheim, Azuza, and Cucamonga.

Spider-Man cartoons have always been great and I think this series was probably the best.
Spider-Man teamed up with Iceman and Firestar every week to battle all kinds of villains. It was great fun watching the three superheroes battling the likes of Dracula. The voice artists responsible for the cartoon characters really seemed to put some emotion into the characters.
To the best of my knowledge this show hasn't been repeated in the UK that often since it first aired. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Spider-Man cartoons. And what can I say about Iceman? Wow!
Try and hunt down some videos of this show if you can.
