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.Written by

The character Videoman was created exclusively for this series. Initially, Videoman was a villain, but with the video game craze of the 1980's, Marvel thought the character had more potential as a hero instead of a villain and set him up to be included in the X-Men for their own series pilot.

When aired on ABC Family, some scenes are removed. These include an Iron Man scene from the origin episode, a line Firestar saying "See, Spidey, he's smarter than he looks," and a Spider-Man scene from the episode "A Firestar is Born." He falls through a grate after the Juggernaut buries him. He lands in the subway tunnel and sticks to an incoming train. See more »
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.
