Synopsis

Spider-Man is an animated television series that ran from September 9, 1967 to June 14, 1970. It was jointly produced in Canada and the United States and was the first animated adaptation of the Spider-Man comic book series, created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. It first aired on the ABC television network in the United States but went into syndication at the start of the third season. Grantray-Lawrence Animation produced the first season. Seasons 2 and 3 were crafted by producer Ralph Bakshi in New York City. In Canada, it is currently airing on Teletoon Retro. An internet meme, commonly known as 1960s Spiderman, regarding the series has received an overwhelming amount of popularity. The meme consists of a screenshot taken at a random part of the series and adding an inappropriate and/or witty text. Since the death of Max Ferguson on March 7 2013, there are only three surviving members from the cast. Those three being Paul Soles the voice of Spider-Man, Chris Wiggins the voice of Mysterio and Carl Banas the voice of the Scorpion.

Intcatinfo A Masterpiece!
AnhartLinkin This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.
Clarissa Mora The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
Brenda The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
Don Gordon The thing that really made this show special was the music. Bachelor pad band leader Ray Ellis composed, and conducted a wide range of dramatic secret-agent-style cues for the first season, and these bits got reused to good effect in the following seasons. Bob Harris and Paul Francis Webster contributed the theme song with its frenetic off-kilter drum riffs. Starting in season 2, the creators began dipping into the KPM music catalogue bringing to light ice-cool jazz gems such as Syd Dale's "The Hell Raisers" and David Lindup's "Stand By." Some of the same cues would later pop up in TV shows such as "Dallas." Paul Kligman's J. Jonah Jameson and Paul Soles' Peter Parker voice work was absolutely wonderful. It's hard not to imagine their voices when reading the comics.The animation art is fairly dynamic, and resembles the work of John Romita who served as a consultant. Comic artist Gray Morrow even worked as one of the animators. Ralph Bakshi who would later become famous for "Lord of the Rings" and "Fire and Ice" took over as director in the second season. The most obvious mark of his influence was the dark multi-coloured clouds that appeared as backgrounds in some of the more psychedelic episodes.Overall one of the more interesting animated series' of its time.
blackarachnia2 I think that today's Spiderman animated series doesn't even come close to being as good as this. My mother says "the animation was bad but at least they had an excuse back then." When you're a little kid like that you tend not to care what other people think. I didn't really care what my mother thought at the time because she wasn't a little kid back then so how could she have possibly known about the animation of these films? I think to get a good enough prospective of it you have to see it through a young child's eyes. Seeing their favourite comic book super heroes coming to life right before their very eyes and wondering how did they do that? That's what this cartoon series has meant to me. I didn't really care one way or the other just how bad the animation was or how corny the jokes were. I just saw it as "it's Spiderman! Shut up and let me enjoy it" (Note that I never would have said that out loud when I was a kid but it was just something that I was thinking at the time.) Spiderman is probably one of my most favourite cartoon superheroes next to Wolverine from the X-Men but that's a different comment all together.
The_Light_Triton Oh yes. your friendly neighborhood spider-man. everyone should know this guy quite well. Peter parker is the school loser. he doesn't have any girlfriends, he doesn't have any parents, he's just a beat down loser, until one day a radioactive spider bites him. the next day, he finds out that he has the strength of a spider (if the spider was his size) and a bunch of other cool features.Spiderman was created by a guy named Stan lee in 1962. originally, lee had been working on a comic strip called "the amazing fantasy", but it was becoming a lame comic, so the 15th one would be the end. Lee decided to make a superhero, that wasn't like any other. a hero that was a teenager. a loser. a superhero that loses more than he can win. And then, spider-man became a hit. so the amazing fantasy was dumped and the amazing spider-man was born.you can catch spider-man on the family channel in the morning, depending on what time zone you're in. check your local listings. it's usually before mad, mad, mornings.10 / 10
EyeDunno I grew up watching this series in the early 1970s, and I'm happy that someone finally placed them onto DVDs. The set of 6 discs is rather deep, with all the episodes filling the DVDs. It's rather thin on extras. But there are what, 3 hours per disc? And the episodes are in chronological order, from the first to the final episode. Some of the episodes weren't digitally remastered, as most seem to have been, but heck, when I compare them to the VHS tapes I used to purchase at comic book shows where the tapes were recorded from UHF stations yielding poor reception, I won't complain. I'm just glad they're here. For the price, it's plenty of bang for the buck.As for the episodes, Ralph Bakshi took over as producer midway through the run of the original episodes (his cartoons can be found about midway through the third DVD). Reading through postings on the net, people have said that Bakshi took over and operations moved from Canada to the US when it was cheaper then to produce the animation in the states... and some staff cutting was done while the episodes were still cranked out at a good pace. Hence, people claim, a good bit of regurgitation of characters and plot lines increased. FYI, the Canadian episodes had Spidey webbing in clear skies, while the Bakshi episodes introduced eerie, watercolored skies. I'm a visual guy, and love the vibrant tones. Plus, it seems as though the music picked up a lot with the change. I just "dig" the way the music sounded. You can even hear a musician yelp every now and then in some jam sessions. So, I can't go Bakshi bashing. Usually, it's the networks that trim budgets, and Bakshi, I feel, had to make due. He did the best he could, I think, and I bet that if the budget had been fat, Bakshi would have had the animators take time and add depth and detail.
