Still puzzles me how Morbius was in more eps than Carnage and Venom and many of the other villians.
said at 4:22 AM on Fri Jul 28 2017
@Darkness Dragon i think it was due to the fact that they were trying to make him popular, he got his comic serires by that timeframe

@Darkness Dragon Because they decided that Morbius would be a prominent supporting character that happened to be relevant than Venom or Carnage, probably.

Frankly, if you have more limitations on how much violence you can depict on-screen than your average saturday morning cartoon, can't have vampires actually use their fangs and can't even utter the word "blood", why do vampires at all? There are plenty of Spider-Man villains born from science messing with people's DNA that they could have used as a contrast of Peter's mutation instead. Would have saved us from all the narmy "I HUNGER for the plasma!" moments.

I'm currently binge-watching Marvel cartoons from 80's and 90's (nice thing is that all of them have Region 2 DVDs) and I'm currently 3 episodes into this show's season 2. I have been very vocal about this show's poor writing and voice acting in the past, but in hindsight, I may have been perhaps bit too harsh. Sure, this show certainly can't hold a candle to some of the other superhero shows and there are plenty of unintentionally hilarious moments ("SHOCKER!"), but it is by no means awful.

Although, I stand by the animation being rather poor. Sure, if you watch a random clip from youtube, it probably looks fine to you, but when you watch multiple episodes in a row, the blatant cutting of corners gets really distracting. The constant recycling of old animation gets especially bad, when you have scenes like Curt Connors looking like he is shouting nervously while calmly teaching a class or The Sinister Six (no, I won't call them "Insidious Six") walking in a alleyway, but then suddenly being in a warehouse when they stop to talk and then being in the alleyway again when they resume walking. C'mon guys! I know you had low-budget, but you could have been more subtle about it.

@spencermalley935 On reflection, I also find this show's version of Mary Jane to be a very flaccid and Poorly Written Character.

Fans like to give Kirsten Dunst a lot of flack but this version honestly isn't much better.

Rewatching this show, it's honestly aged better than I thought it would. Is it perfect? No, but it's a great watch if you're looking for a fun Saturday morning cartoon with loads of action. While some heroic or civilian characters sounded off, the villains were great and memorable in voice and appearance. It may not be a super deep, dark drama, but it can definitely pull off comedy & drama at the right time and pass off as quality entertainment.

Trevor DeVall mentions auditioning for this show as a Canadian teenager.

It's pretty awesome how they managed to get actors from Toronto, Vancouver, & LA.

How exactly did that happen?
Nightmare Crusher
said at 8:30 AM on Fri Apr 8 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed It was mostly done in LA, with Toronto actors being brought in for certain episodes, usually when the X-Men were involved. Vancouver was never involved to my knowledge. Trevor Devall apparently didn't work there until 1998, when production on this show would have been over.
said at 5:16 PM on Fri Apr 8 2016
@Nightmare Crusher It was actually a fumbled early experience for Trevor. He mentions being so green he did not think put on the headphones when he came into the studio.

Needless to say, it put him off directors' lists for a few years.

I suppose I should have mentioned "prior to his main career" in my previous comment.

It would be nice to get editing options for the comments on this site. I'm sure there are reasons for not doing so, but it might keep the comment sections from overloading.

I don't think it's personally fair to blame any TAS actor for what Tony Pastor did. Saratoga had the most lively performance of any MJ and much like CDB she could've been better with better direction. Even though CDB had similar issues his voice gets praised while hers is bashed. I don't mind people thinking she'd be a better Gwen, the voice itself was a pretty natural pick for Mj even if the emotional scenes weren't the best. Jennifer Hale IMO truly nailed Felice as well as Black Cat, and the hissing made the performance even more fun. Aunt Anna is one I don't mind complaints against but they didn't want two Aunt May's.

Even though this is not my favorite Spidey show (my favorites being the 67 show and Spider-Friends), it's a pretty solid show. In fact, I do have a favorite episode, which is odd considering this is not as close to my heart as the ones that are my favorites, and that episode is "The Rocket Racer", because it features Michael Des Barres (the guy in my profile pic) as Jackson Wheele, the villain of the episode, and as you may know, I absolutely loved this guy in MacGyver, and that's one of the main reasons I love his performance in this episode and the episode itself.

Also Christopher Daniel Barnes was a pretty rad Spidey.

Underrated, there's reason this was popular, and was ranked one of the best cartoons, and got fans(including me) into Spidey, complain about accents or voice direction if you must, but the cast had a lot of potential, but various things like writing and voice direction ruined it. We had great VA's like Mark Hamill and Jim Cummings, who were great in their roles, Mark is hard to replace as Hobgoblin. Roscoe's Kingpin is the definitive Kingpin for me. CDB's jokes made him one of the best Spidey's ever. Plenty of homages to the comics too. I think it went downhill when all the Madame Web stuff came up, but it should have been finished, the ending we got didn't do it justice.

@pete Yeah, when I rewatched this I was bugged by the ending. We just got Madame Web telling Spidey that he'd reunite with Mary Jane, but we never got to see it. After the supposed return of her and then what happened, I felt a bit cheated that we didn't get to see their actual reunion and wedding.

This might be out of place, but this series reused that scene of Spidey in the warehouse with the crates exploding so many times. I swear that there were times when he wasn't anywhere near a warehouse during a fight, but that scene would be in there.

@Polyester Funk There was gonna be a Season 6, involving Norman returning and the Carnage Symbiote possessing Jack The Ripper in 1800's London but it got axed for I forget the issue, budget problems I think.

@pete The Carnage symbiote possessing Jack the Ripper, well that sounds interesting and bizarre at the same time. Wonder how they would have handled Jack.
said at 7:51 AM on Sun Nov 23 2014
@pete Depends on what you believe as there are 2 sides to how the series got cancelled.

1. The writers ran out of story lines.

2. The head of FoxKids hated Avi Arad and cancelled the show once the 65 episode contract was up.

I lean more on reason 2 personally as I believe there was potential for episodes to written. Hell I even made a thread in forums on a series 6 idea.

And yes, I also thought the ending was the biggest kick to the face in a cartoon series. Even Spectacular never got a proper ending but at least its road out was better.

@Ross123 I saw your thread a while back, meant to comment on it and never did, from what I remember some stuff like Sandman showing up, Beetle on the other hand, it's weird with him, he was in merchandise for the show but not the show itself. He was in the toyline and game.
said at 12:05 PM on Tue Nov 25 2014
@pete I never heard about Beetle getting merchandise for the show until now. Man, that is weird.
said at 12:49 PM on Tue Nov 25 2014
@Ross123 He's a boss in the game, and his toy's on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Spider-Man-Animated-Series-Spider-Beetle/dp/B001RE5A3U
said at 3:24 AM on Wed Nov 26 2014
@pete Just like in the comics in design. Just under £30, that's a bit steap. Though that's probably because it was made about 20 years ago.

If he had appeared on the show I'm sure John Reilly from the Iron Man cartoons at the time would have voiced him.
said at 6:50 PM on Fri May 1 2015
@Ross123 It seems that, a toyline was eiter made in this show's name even after it was canceled, well later 1998 and in 1999 anyway, cause the reruns apparently still sold toys, or they sold toys that had nothing to do with the show at all it's name, but then there's the point of the game boss again.
said at 9:22 AM on Sat May 2 2015
@Ross123 Since Tony Pastor was the recording director of this show, the possibility of Reilly playing Beetle in the unmade season is pretty high (after all, Pastor kept James Avery as War Machine instead of using Dorian Harewood). It could have been that, or he would have to recast him (just like he did with the Fantastic Four and Dr. Doom on this show).
said at 11:50 AM on Sat May 2 2015
@Starscreamsfan It depends on his opinion of the voicework, he didn't like Fantastic Four's, but I disagree with that. Beetle was joke about, well, The Beatles, Unless john changed the voice, I don't think we'd want to listen to that.
said at 12:30 PM on Sat May 2 2015
@pete Yah. That's just my thought. The reason of the recasting of the Four and Doom is that he did dislike Fantastic Four. However it seems he liked directing Iron Man, so I really think we would have been tortured by "Beatle" (not Beetle) if that had happened.
said at 2:30 PM on Sat May 2 2015
@Starscreamsfan It might have been Tony Pastor as well, but it was actually John Semper Jr. that had John Semper Jr. that had everyone but the Human Torch recasted.
said at 2:37 PM on Sat May 2 2015
@pete So, it was Semper who recast all of Pastor's Fantastic Four choices. Flynn wasn't a Pastor casting choice (he was chosen by Stu Rosen), so that's why they kept him.
said at 12:29 PM on Mon May 4 2015
@pete Never heard or knew about toys based on the show being made after it ended, this is new news to me.

Could've been made for Spiderman Unlimited as I have an action figure of Spiderman from that show.
said at 12:32 PM on Mon May 4 2015
@Starscreamsfan Wish John Semper hadn't recast the FF because I thought they sounded worse than the original cast from the show.

Granted I enjoyed some the 90s FF voices but I didn't like the VAs they got for this.
said at 12:37 PM on Mon May 4 2015
@Ross123 Yeah, the 90s FF cartoon had some good voices (particularly during season 2), but yeah, the new choices weren't that good. Quinton Flynn was pretty good (he was the only one who played the character in the FF cartoon), Pat Pinney was pretty decent, but Cam Clarke and Gail Matthius feel kinda odd.

@Ross123 They have a TAS type logo on them, I don't remember where I got this from though

Mysterious TAS toys is what they should be called, created by Mysterio himself. LOL!!!
said at 8:19 PM on Tue May 5 2015
@Ross123 Lol, though I did forget Unlimited was meant to be a sequel to TAS this may have been an attempt to make money off it, since they assumed TAS was still going and/or the line was more than popular enough to sell, or could have been before anything was known about Unlimited besides that.

Such a classic show.

The stories and the pacing were quite a mess, but I still enjoyed the show. It had a lot of memorable heroes and villains and a good episode count.

Best opening theme too, at least in my opinion.

My favourite Spiderman tv series of all time. Sure the voice acting might not be brilliant but this was the longest running 1. Not 2 mention the great story lines. Never got a good chance 2 watch it when I was young but when it used 2 be on Disney XD I recorded it almost all the time but Disney never showed very many of the episodes because they missed a lot of them out. It started 2 bug me a little bit so I wanted the set for Christmas (2012). I watched all the episodes within a week, in fact I watched the entire final season in 1 day (didn't get bored somehow). So 2 me, Seasons 1-3 were brilliant while Season 4 & Episodes 1-6 of Season 5 were ok but the remainder of Season 5 sucked so bad, mainly because of the ending in "Return of Hydroman: Part 1" & I thought all the Spidermen from different dimensions ruined it. My favourite voice in the series has 2 be Roscoe Lee Browne as the Kingpin but I also think that character got stupid as each season went on as he started off as pretty smart but kept on getting tricked a lot & I couldn't believe he tried 2 grab Electro.

I have to agree with some of the complaints, but even though this show is messy, it's still solid entertainment from what I've seen of it. The writing, as far as just coming up with scenarios for an episode, is fine and usually exciting enough. The animation is a little cheap looking at times but it certainly gets the job done and is by no means unwatchable. The music is pretty decent, the theme song is fairly cool, and the voice acting is alright. It may be corny, but at least it's more than competent.

Christopher Daniel Barnes is neither bad, or amazing as Spider-Man, but to be fair, the dialogue he has in the show, especially in most scenes involving the romance, is pretty darn bad. He's a bit inconsistent, but I didn't find anything about his acting to be that bad at all.

It's not a great show, but it's solid entertainment in a lot of episodes and I don't see what some people find so cringe-worthy about it. Plus, some of the sound effects, especially the web-shooters, are pretty memorable and cool.

In hindsight I think the big problem with this show is the pacing. Way too much happens way too fast. You know how when you wake up music can sound faster, that's exactly what this show is like.

I loved this show as a kid and I was ecstatic to see it on Netflix Instant Queue.

After watching it, though, I found that the show wasn't quite as good as I remembered. It's definitely a show that hasn't aged especially well. The dialogue is lame, it throws a lot at you and expects you to catch it all, and the storyline is just plain confusing.

While it is a pleasant throwback to my childhood, my mind has accepted that this is a mediocre show. Spectacular Spider-Man is the strongest Spidey cartoon to me.
