Storyline

After being bitten by a radioactive spider, young Peter Parker finds that he now has spider-like super powers. Hoping to use his new-found abiilties for wealth and fame, he lets his ego blind him to the needs of others, and indirectly causes the death of his uncle Ben when he refuses to help a police officer catch a fleeing criminal. Humbled by his failure, he resolves to use his talents for fighting crime, and becomes the superhero Spider-Man. While he fights assorted super-villains, Peter also must balance his personal life, including his girlfriend Mary Jane, his job as a photographer at the Daily Bugle, and a an editor who has convinced himself that Spider-man is a criminal that has to be brought down.

Trivia

Peter Parker's character design was originally intended to resemble the one seen in the comics. However, the design was switched towards the final production of the show after Stan Lee wanted Peter Parker to look more contemporary. Stan Lee described how he wanted Peter Parker to look and Bob Richardson drew what Stan was describing to him. See more »

Quotes

Spider-Man: [talking about the bomb strapped to his wrist] No, no take it back. It clashes with the color of my costume.

Alternate Versions

After the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001, ABCFamily heavily edited the episode "Day of the Chameleon" to remove the World Trade Center, buildings, parts of the NY skyline, a helicopter crashing into a building, as well as exploding and falling to the ground below, among other shots... making the first scene virtually implausible to comprehend as it was originally intended. Dialogue was re-looped to match the new, shorter, version. Also, some production credits from the episode are missing as well, due to their being on screen during the omitted footage. See more »

Best Spidey Ever!
31 July 2017 | by Animany94See all my reviews

I have watched a lot of animated renditions of Spider-Man and this is the only one which still holds up to this day. The Spectacular Spider- Man (2008), which is a great show too, captures a lot of this show's strengths, but not all of them. The voice acting, the animation, the characters, everything is well executed. Perhaps you can point out some flaws yourself, but I can't find any. Okay, honestly, the frequently occurring CG backgrounds can be distracting at times, but aside from that nothing sticks out.
