Supervising Producer Bob Richardson said that of all the show's seasons, season five was the most problematic. The mistakes in those episodes, as well as the animation's poor quality and overtly-repeated scenes for season five, were a result in a three-month delay in writing the season five scripts. When the scripts did finally arrive, most of which were written by John Semper, the season five stories were the most complex scripts the "Spider-Man" animated series had. Richardson said the season five scripts "went against everything we were trying to do in an effort to keep the workload on all of the production at a reasonable level", due to the new characters, locations and guest hero and villain powers included. Semper wrote most of the stories in season five himself due to several writers, including Brooks Wachtel and Stan Berkowitz, leaving the series during the three-month delay for season five.

The episodes shown in syndication of the Jetix line-up feature a shortened opening credit sequence that shows clips from all 5 seasons. However, Season Two episodes have their original intro. See more »
Alot of people complain about the animation in this show. While it was rather poor in spots, it had some good CGI backgrounds of cityscapes, which looked neat. And then there's the story: AWESOME!! So what is the animation is spotty, people read Lord of the Rings even if the edition is 25 years old, water stained, and smells of dank basement. I loved the stories about Venom, they showed real moral dilemmas. It was on par with the spectacular X-Men show of about the same time. Fox should put a definitive DVD collection out of this, X-Men, and maybe EEEKstravaganza.
