Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Eight years before Tobey Maguire was born, the animated Spider-Man spun his first web across America's television screens. The program ran from 1967 through 1970 on ABC, and imprinted its theme song, "Spider-Man, Spider-Man/ Does whatever a spider can / Spins a web, any size / Catches thieves--just like flies" on a generation of viewers.

The comic book Spider-Man, who debuted in Marvel's Amazing Fantasy in 1962, epitomized the superhero as antihero. During his battles with bizarre villains, Peter Parker was beset by self-doubts and personal problems. The animated Spider-Man was a straightforward action superhero who was too busy performing weird stunts like fashioning a boat and motor out of spider webs to worry or agonize.

From the opening titles that announce the program is "in COLOR," Spider-Man feels dated. When he fights Electro, Spidey can fend off blasts of electricity because he's added "just a little asbestos to my web liquid"; when he discovers the extent of his new powers, Peter dreams of a spot on The Ed Sullivan Show. Although the directors include Ralph Bakshi and former Disney artist Clyde Geronimi, the animation is extremely limited. The same shots of Spiderman swinging over New York appear again and again. But these limits probably won't trouble nostalgic adults who grew up watching Spider-Man on Saturday mornings: "Wherever there's a hang-up / You'll find the Spider-Man!" (Unrated, suitable for ages 7 and older: cartoon violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 Episodes Were Not Remastered!! July 9, 2004
Like most of us who grew up watching this series, either in it's original first run on TV from 1967-70 or later in syndication, it left an indelible impact. Remember, this was the very first time Spider-Man had ever been made into a cartoon, and so the idea of actually getting to see him swinging from building to building instead of just looking at freeze-frame shots in a comic strip was really a big deal.
The first season of episodes (20 shows, 38 individual stories total), I think, are still the most remembered and most cherished of the series, with Spidey taking on famous villains like The Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Electro, The Vulture, ect. While the later seasons, which were exec. produced, directed, as well as story supervised by Ralph "Lord of The Rings - The Animated Motion Picture" Bakshi, are a mixed bag of strange trippy imagery, with some plot points in them that just make you scratch your head in bewilderment. There are some gems in there though. Besides the "Origin" Episode (#21), which is definitely a standout, other highlights by Bakshi include, "Home" (#34), a story about a woman who also has spider powers (no, it's not Spider-Woman), "Criminals In The Clouds" (#24) which involves the kidnapping of a high school student by the villainous Sky Master, "The Madness of Mysterio" (#48), a rare original Season Three episode involving the famous villain, only looking completely different and having green skin. And speaking of green skin, what was Bakshi's fetish with green skinned villains anyway? Just about all of them were green with a few exceptions. And the irony is that he never once used The Green Goblin in any of his episodes.
Most of the last season was just a rehash of earlier episodes, remixed and redubbed to seem like new episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Appreciating Old School Spidey, not for Everyone March 11, 2005
I'm old school to the hilt. Spider- Man, the original... I've hunted VHS tapes for years to only find those taped in EP (or SLP) directly from a UHF station in Philadelphia, and I was charged a premium at a comics show years ago. Now, original Spidey's on DVD! All of the original episodes, finally. Several episodes aren't cleaned up as well as others, but after watching the old VHS tape that was probably a 4th generation copy, why be so picky. Spiderman fans from the 60s will love this. Revisit it.

The DVDs are numbered one to 6, and the episodes burned on each disk are in the same order as they were broadcast. Because the first 2 disks and the first half of the third were done by another company, I'm not as fond of the artwork or music that accompanied those episodes as the ones when Ralph Bakshi took over. I understand that he caught some heat from people who felt that he oversaw alot of regurgitating scenes and even whole episodes as the series continued. But he took over when budget cutbacks forced the producers to step away from the previous animation group. Bakshi did what he could with the budget he was given and the time to produce them in. Some even slammed Bakshi for not following the comics for the stories. But to me, Baksi's episodes are the most fun! Look at the color and the types of creatures Krantz animation produced, and how sinister the episodes seemed. Before I knew what other said about these, I felt like I was on some kind of mental trip with the colors and music. All the arch rivals wind up wanting to rule the world (or swamps and even an island) and talk about making slaves of the people. And check how many times Spidey talks about hallucinations in the Bakshi cartoons. Spidey even falls into a bed of mushrooms in at least one toon!

With all the classic tv shows or movies being digitally restored, who would think that the 1967 SPIDER-MAN cartoon series would get the restoration/DVD treatment. Most people remember the cartoon series based on the theme song alone and some may see this nothing less than nostalgic. Once one sees that the animation is repetitive and at times inconsistant, one might find it hard to watch. However, this is a very minor complaint and the repeat scenes of Spider-Man swinging through the streets of NYC captured the character's essence of his super powers and probably served as the background for what is seen in the Sam Raimi/Tobey Mcguire films. Also,this is is a pretty good DVD package (a 6 volume DVD package of all 52 episodes restored by Buena Vista Television...a Disney Company). Over the years since the show ended its Saturday morning network run on ABC in 1970, it was shown sporadically on syndicated tv markets. Then, bootleg tapes of this series can be bought at various sci-fi and comic book conventions (most likely taped from those syndicated airings). However, only a few shows could only be obtained. Now the complete series is available because of the advent of DVD and the digital restoration craze. The print and sound are extraordinary making up for the limited and repetitive animation. Also, the segments are just plain fun, straight foward, self-contained adventure stories without any melodrama or soap opera-type continuation storylines that bog down so many superhero comics today.

I love this! It is the one I remember watching as a kid. Electro, Doc Ock, Rhino, Kingpin, Mysterio. This is when they made cartoons by drawing each frame on paper. No CGI here!
