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.

I think I saw a little bit of this show when I was little, it has one of the best voices for Spider man, better Josh Keaton in my book

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.

@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.

@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

@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.

Here's some cool news, the cast has recently reunited for a 20th anniversary panel, and are working on a new project called Rocket Men:

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.

@Nightmare Crusher You know, you described exactly what it felt like for me to watch episodes of Transformers G1.

@PsychicVoiceSpy And by this I mean that it was just too hard for me to keep up with it and stay interested.

I don't like most of the voice acting from this show.

@coolgeek176 I am going to retract that statement. I recently rewatched parts of the show and some of the voice acting I thought was bad is okay.

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.
