Storyline

Student Peter Parker is bitten by a spider while witnessing an experiment in radiology and finds that the radiation has transferred the properties of the spider (ability to scale walls and swing on webs) to him with a strength proportional to his body. Peter now has super spider powers and is so preoccupied with their possibilities that he fails to help the police stop a thief, who later robs the house of Peter's guardians, Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and kills Ben. Furious, Peter tracks down the culprit at a warehouse, and, on seeing the man's face, Peter realizes that if he had acted earlier to help stop the crook, Ben would be alive now. So, Peter vows to use his new powers to fight crime, as the super-heroic Spider-Man. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Trivia

After Season 2 ended, the series continued to air on ABC's Saturday morning line up until August 30, 1969 when it was dropped by the network after 39 episodes aired. For the show to have a successful run in syndicated reruns, a minimum of 52 episodes was needed. After a year hiatus, a 3rd Season of 13 episodes was commissioned for production and slated to air in first run syndication, but Krantz films was running low on money and had the budget slashed even more than in was in Season 2. As a result, many of the episodes in Season 3 had heavily recycled animation footage from Season 1 & 2 episodes and just added new dialogue to make a new episode. See more »

Goofs

Through out the series the Spider emblem on Spider-Man's suit switches between having 6 legs to having the correct 8. Noticable from season 2 onwards when the episodes start reusing more footage. See more »

Quotes

[theme song]
Chorus: Spider-Man, Spider-Man, / Does whatever a spider can / Spins a web, any size / Catches thieves just like flies / Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man! / Is he strong? Listen, bud, / He's got radioactive blood / Can he swing from a thread? / Take a look overhead! / Hey there! There goes the Spider-Man! / In the chill of the night, at the scene of the crime, / like a streak of light, he arrives just in time! / Spider-Man, Spider-Man, / Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man / Wealth and fame...

Great great show
22 May 2003 | by ron_72180See all my reviews

Hell I wasnt even really thought of when this show first came out. I use to watch it on Fox 5 in NYC with my dad when I was 3....that was about 20 years ago. This was definetly the best of the 60s Marvel cartoons. I preferred the first ones, I liked the Bakshi ones, but I liked the shorts because they mostly used the comic villains. The Bakshi ones didnt start using real comic villains towards the end. Fox Family occasionally shows it, but rarely. If you can find videos of this series at comic stores pick them up. This was a great show.
