According to an on-line interview with John Semper, the reason that the Hobgoblin was added to the show in Season One before the Green Goblin was that plans for the character were being done before he arrived by writers and crew members that were no longer involved. By that time, the Hobgoblin had been made into an action figure for the animated series that was going to be released, so Semper admitted they had to let him stay on the series. See more »

I've seen all those other Spidey cartoons, and as hilariously bad as they are, they're painful to watch; however, this version of Spider-Man has the most accurate representation of the character Peter Parker/Spider-Man and all his friends and enemies.
The animation is interesting to look at, the story is quick-paced and exciting, and the dialogue has corny jokes and puns which are hilarious. They've even used the lesser-known villains, such as the Spot! Now THERE's an indication of a really good cartoon show.
It's a shame they had to end it due to legal problems. Will the world ever learn?
