EP17 Canon Of Doom Jan 02, 1982

In Latveria, Johan's father and many other countrymen continue to be forced to work as slaves. Boris, Dr. Doom's assistant tries to convince Doom that his people should have more rights. Doom dismisses this, and continues to have his people construct a satellite tracking station and connect it to the guidance system teleported to him by Goron, before the U.S. launches a space platform. By causing two large explosions in Greenland and the Mexican jungle, Doom creates a new fault line that crosses New York, putting the city in extreme jeopardy. Doom is allowed to journey to New York by invitation from Jameson, over the objections of the government, and he takes a large laser cannon with him. Doom claims that his laser will drill a hole deep enough into the Earth that the resulting heat can be sold by Jameson from his estate. Peter goes to Jameson's mansion, and discovers that the new fault line lies directly below the estate. As Spider-Man, he then fights with Doom but is unable to prevent the first earthquakes from occurring. Back in Latveria, Johan escapes from Doom's forces with the help of Boris. While on the run, Boris tells Johan of how Doom came to power, with his father being killed by a tyrant's soldiers. Doom continued to fight injustice in Europe with his scientific knowledge until he gained a scholarship in America. There, he conducted forbidden and dangerous experiments that scarred his face. He then took refuge with a mysterious order of monks and became Dr. Doom. Doom's tale told, Boris then gives Johan the address of a Latverian resistance base in New York. With the earthquakes continuing, and an air strike on Jameson's estate imminent, Spidey must shut down Doom's laser canon.

EP19 The Doom Report Jan 16, 1982

The Latverian peasant Johan has managed to escape thanks to help from Dr. Doom's assistant Boris. Doom punishes Boris by imprisoning him in his dungeon. Johan meanwhile, has made it to New York, where he meets a group of underground Latverian resistance fighters. Afterwards, he wishes to tell the world about the terrible conditions for the people of Latveria thanks to Doom. The resistance leader tells Johan to go specifically to the Daily Bugle, but when he gets there, his story is immediately dismissed by Jameson, who still thinks that Doom is a great man. However, Peter and Betty overhear Johan's accusations, and Peter decides to record his story. As Betty types up the story for publication, she is kidnapped by the freedom fighters, who are in reality working for Doom. Spider-Man turns up quickly and rescues Betty, but the transcript of Johan's story is stolen. However, since she still has Peter's tape, the story ends up being printed by every newspaper (except the Bugle) in the city after copies are sent out. Thanks to the publicity against Doom, the revolution in Latveria begins and Johan returns to Latveria. Spider-Man decides to join him on his journey back, but Doom is remote-controlling their plane. Doom issues the U.N. with another ultimatum to make him the leader of the world or his will use his giant Tesla coils to produce torrents of rain all over the Earth. When Spidey and Johan get to Latveria after escaping from the remote-plane, they meet up with the true resistance, and Spidey sneaks into Doom's castle, while the resistance attempt to destroy the satellite tracking station. Spidey has to face Doom yet again, and save the Earth by destroying the giant Tesla coils.

EP20 The Web of Nephilia Jan 23, 1982

EP21 Countdown To Doom Jan 30, 1982

As N.A.S.A. prepares to launch a space platform containing a canon created by Dr. Doom, there is an accident with a liquid nitrogen leak, trapping some gantry workers. Spidey quickly intervenes and saves both the workers, and the rocket, little realizing that he has ensured that Dr. Doom's final master plan can go ahead. Doom watches the rocket's launch from his new castle, unaware of Johan and his comrade's escape from the dungeons. Doom takes control of the rocket using his satellite tracking station, and help from Dr. Zoltan at N.A.S.A. Doom uses the laser canon on board the space platform to ignite all the volcanoes around the Pacific rim of fire. The resulting simultaneous eruptions move the Earth from its orbit, sending it away from the Sun and plunging it into a new ice age. Spidey discovers that the only opportunity to return the Earth to its original orbit it at midnight, when the volcanoes are on the other side of the Earth, facing away from the Sun. Doom issues his final ultimatum to the U.N., and with no choice, they declare him absolute ruler of the world. Spidey meanwhile, has hitched a lift to Latveria thanks to the French ambassador, and meets up with Johan's resistance. With Doom now master of the world, he sends out robot duplicates of himself to take their place at the head of all the world's governments, and dissolves the U.N. As Spider-Man and the Latverian resistance converge on Dr. Doom's castle, the stage is set for the final battle to save the Earth.

Pluskylang Great Film overall
AutCuddly Great movie! If you want to be entertained and have a few good laughs, see this movie. The music is also very good,
Philippa All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Curt Watching it is like watching the spectacle of a class clown at their best: you laugh at their jokes, instigate their defiance, and "ooooh" when they get in trouble.
alexanderdavies-99382 I still retain vague memories of watching this "Spiderman" cartoon show from the early 1980s. To me, it was like watching the comics come to life. Bearing in mind how long ago this was made, the animation still holds up very well. The plots in themselves may not be as detailed or as mature as the "Spiderman" show from the 1990s but it doesn't matter to me. There is a whole gallery of villains to watch: The Green Goblin, Dr. Doom, Dr. Octopus, Kingpin, The Red Skull, The Lizard, Mysterio, The Black Cat and other more obscure adversaries. It was slightly unexpected to see Dr. Doom in so many episodes from this show - a total of 6. After all, he has never been a regular "Spiderman" villain. The reason why he was included in so many episodes, was due to the huge following of the "Star Wars" character Darth Vader. There are so many great episodes here to choose from. There are 26 altogether and I would rate 19 from being excellent to very good. The music from this "Spiderman" show is very good as it suits the style and the tone. I was glad when all the episodes were released on DVD, as video releases were fairly seldom. I shall always rate the 1981 "Spiderman" cartoon show as the definitive one.
Vivekmaru45 When I was young, I used to wait for this show on TV, after I came home for school. In my opinion, this is among the finest Spiderman shows I have ever watched. In this series, Peter Parker having to balance his alter ego crime-fighting with his responsibilities as a university student, a part-time photographer for the Daily Bugle and caring for his elderly Aunt May Parker.The show features Spiderman battling villains such as Chameleon, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, The Kingpin, The Lizard, Sandman, Silvermane, Vulture, Mysterio, Magneto, Red Skull, Kraven the Hunter, Wizard, Sub-Mariner, Black Cat, Medusa, and the Green Goblin. Thus providing the viewer with plenty of comic book villains.This series spawned a spin-off Spiderman And His Amazing Friends.Other recommendations: Spider-man unlimited (1999-2001 13 Episodes), Spiderman The New Animated Series(2003-13 Episodes), The Spectacular Spiderman(2008-09 26 Episodes).
fish4spider-1 this cartoon was one of my favorite's in the 80's and still is now i know the show only had 26 shows and should have lasted longer i thought ted swartz was great as spider-man. Dan Gilvezan was'nt that good as spider-man, ted should have been in spider-man and his amazing friends this show had peter working at the daily bugle most of the characters from the comic are in this show. this show had a six part story that had doctor doom being the main villain spider-man teaming up with captain America vs the red skull was a great episode this show has hardly any credit ted gets no credit for being great as a spider-man voice spider-man and his amazing friends was made as a rival for marval against dc comics superfriends spiderman teams up with prince namor captain America and others
Big Movie Fan My favourite Spider-Man shows were the late 1960's series and also Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. However, this was a decent show as well.The animation techniques had evolved since the late 1960's series and there were some exciting villains in it as well. My favourite episode was where Spidey was shrunk by a villain called the Gadgateer. All the top Spidey villains were here-the Kingpin, Green Goblin, Doctor Doom etc.This had the best written episodes of any Marvel series in my opinion and the animation was top notch for it's time.Highly recommended.Just one more point; Why do great shows such as this never get released onto video whilst other rubbish gets every episode released onto video?
