Product Description

Get ready for hours of nonstop, super Spidey excitement as the world’s most famous web-slinging Super Hero returns in all 13 action-packed episodes from the hit first season of “The Spectacular Spider-ManTM!” The line of Super Villains determined to take down Spidey seems never ending. There’s Venom, Electro, Dr. Octopus, Sandman and Rhino - just to name a few. These criminals are almost more than he can handle and the stress would be enough to send a lesser Super Hero over the edge, but it’s all in a day's work for The Spectacular Spider-Man !

Amazon.com

The exciting first season of Victor Cook and Greg (Gargoyles) Weisman's stellar animated Spider-Man series is included, uncut, in this two-disc set. Spectacular, which follows both the high-energy adventures of the web-slinger and the social struggles of his alter ego, teenage Peter Parker, is perhaps the most satisfying television adaptation of the legendary Marvel Comics series to date; Weisman and his team remain equally faithful to the high-flying action and the personal dramas in Peter's out-of-costume world. And with only a few changes (most notably to the character of Peter's secret crush, Gwen Stacy, and the identity of the villainous Big Man), they've hewed very closely to the source material, right down to minor characters and second-string villains (the Enforcers, anyone)? All 13 episodes of the series are presented here in their original broadcast format (Sony originally intended to release the season in four-episode blocks on stand-alone single discs with new connecting footage, but that notion was abandoned after the release of Attack of the Lizard), and viewers can enjoy their favorite wall-crawler in battle with some of his most fearsome foes, including Electro, the Sandman, Venom, and, of course, the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus (well voiced by Steven Blum and Peter MacNichol, respectively). Extras on the set are slight--"Spider-Man: Re-Animated" is a making-of featurette with interviews with cast and crew, while "Stylizing Spidey" is a brief look at the show's depiction of the iconic characters-but that shouldn't detract from Spider-fans' enjoying of this terrific show. --Paul Gaita

    Bought this for my 5 yr old. This is the only spiderman I will let him watch. Does have violence - fighting and such - but no shooting. No one dies. Some scenes seem to me a little scary - but by far - the only spiderman suitable for his age. And now I have to get season 2 just to see what happens next!

    Format: DVD
    Spider-Man, one of Marvel's earliest comics characters, has been the backbone of Marvel's animated efforts almost since the beginning. Though starting later than other 1960s animated series, the 60s Spider-Man is the only one of those shows that anyone really remembers (in great part because of the theme song). A number of others followed, most notably "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends" in the 1980s and the 1990s show (the one that I myself grew up with). Following the latter show's end in 1998, Spidey animation went into a bit of a rut, with the outright bizarre "Spider-Man Unlimited" and the MTV "Spider-Man" faiing to capture the magic. This is the first season (13 episodes) the latest very successful effort, overseen by Greg Weisman, the visionary creator of "Gargoyles", one of the classics of 1990s children's animation. Spoilers follow.

    In a departure from previous media adaptations that immediately gives the series something distinctive to operate with, Weisman chooses to set the series during Spider-Man's high school years. The most notable previous versions were set during his young adulthood (in university, for example, in the 90s show). For the main cast of students, Weisman draws on both the cast of the actual high school era in the comics (1962-65) (Liz Allan, Flash Thompson) and various characters from the subsequent John Romita era in college (Gwen Stacy, Harry Osborn, Mary Jane Watson); the adult cast is a kaleidoscope from every era in comics. Minor characters abound, and, indeed, Weisman has boasted that every character is from the comics (though, in several cases, that just amounts to pasting a character name on top of an unrelated concept). All the regulars are present, though not all of them from the start.

    The Spectacular Spider-Man: Season 1 is a breath of fresh air for parents who wish to monitor violance and swearing in the media their kids watch. My sister gave my son a dvd from a different series (Spiderman: The New Animated Series) for his birthday, and I have to admit, I was SHOCKED by how much vulgar language and phsyco violance was in them. To my son's despair, I had to throw it away. To make up for it, though, I bought this series (The Spectacular Spider-Man: Season 1) because of all the rave reviews about it. I crossed my fingers hoping for a cleaner version. What a RELIEF when I previewed them and found NOT A SINGLE SWEAR WORD IN THE WHOLE SEASON!!! And it didn't have any derranged content that I could see...just good clean comic book-type action. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for a clean version of Spider-Man that any kid can enjoy! =)

    My son and I really enjoy watching this series together. The continuity is solid, the characters are interesting, and they do a really good job of capturing the spirit of Spiderman. The animation style was a little odd at first, but after my brain had a chance to adjust it actually works well and is fluid. The action sequences are very dynamic and comic booky and fun, but this is really a character-driven storyline. Great stuff!

    Its August 2010 and still no season 2 on DVD . . . the series is for all intents and purposes dead (a major fail on the parts of Sony, Disney, and Marvel), but I would at least like my decent consolation prize on having the rest of the series on DVD . . . of course, I could just splurge on... Read More

    No Blu-Ray?
    No, it might be shown on Disney XD HD, but the show was not made in a high definition format, although it was made in widescreen.
