I grew up as a child of the 80's, and my superhero idol was Spider-man. I straddled and scooted my way up skinny hallway walls, I begged for silly string canisters so I could live the 30-second fantasy of web shooters, and I practiced and mastered the only acrobatic move I was ever capable of: the ever-impressive forward somersault. It was a far cry from swinging down crowded streets, back-flipping up skyscrapers, and stringing up bad guys, but my imagination carried me far. I lived and breathed the wall-crawler.

As a child of the 80's, I already had the Spider-man cartoon series from 1967, and then Spider-man & His Amazing Friends from 1981 (Spider-Man, Iceman, and Firestar ... lots of fun, but who thought up that crazy team-up?). Both good series in their own rights, but fate smiled upon me as a young teen and Spider-man: The Animated Series was released in 1994 (possibly in part due to the success of Fox Network's X-Men animated series that had launched two years prior).

This series was and remains one of the best Spider-man cartoons to date (and is still the longest-running of any Spider-man animated series, spanning 65 episodes over 5 seasons). The storyline shares several ties with the canon from the various Spider-man comic series, but it also branches off on its own adventures (both as deeper storylines from the main comics, and as separate ones altogether). There were also printed comic books that followed the story of the animated series, most notably "Spider-man Adventures" (1994-96) and "Adventures of Spider-man" (1996-97).

A truly fantastic show that not only captures the true essence of Spider-Man but knows how to use characters to draw you in. The struggles Peter Parker goes through to keep both his personal and super hero life together is fantastic. Peter is one of the most fully developed characters I've seen on any show. The voice acting, villain appearances, music and good balance between staying true to the original stories but presenting them in more modern ways is extraordinary.

My three year old toddler grandson and I have been watch Spiderman, an American Classic that my own children loved. He loves Firestar and Iceman and the drama and wonder, the heroism characters display on the show. Being new to Spiderman, every time he watches it there are new adventures and understandings of drama, reality vs. make-believe. He now has a Spiderman mask and will soon be getting a Spiderman fishing pole.

i remember how excited i was (as a 23 year-old adult) when this show first came out. if you were a collector of the various spider-man comics, you received a a cool replica of an animation cell with each monthly issue. good stuff. and there was a reason we spiderphiles were so excited for this show: it folded the entire history of spider-man into utterly cool, season-long macro arcs. long before brian michael bendis came along and invented the idea of "mashing stuff together" (and don't get me wrong; i like bendis, but he can be a little to cute sometimes), the mid-nineties spider-man show did with ultimate authority. we get a season of monsters and mutations, with venom, the lizard, roxxon, morbius, and some of the more monstery members of spidey's rogues. we get an episode that works in amazing spider-man annual #5. we get silvermane's search for the texts of youth. we get a clever exploration of father-son relationships. we get spider-slayers that tie in with kingpin which leads to amazing spider-man 196's brilliant cuffing of spidey and jjj together with a bomb.

christopher daniel barnes is a wonderful spider-man, and distinguishes himself much like kevin conroy did in the batman adventures, as one of the best, truest interpretations of the character. he is funny, intelligent, serious, and even grave when needed. the number of times his line delivery cracks me up are innumerable. barnes deserves a place alongside nicholas hammond as the best, least appreciated spider-men. all the other voice work is excellent in this top notch show.

i love this show and i don't really understand why it hasn't garnered a more proper dvd release.

I love this series. I like this one much better than any of the other Spiderman shows, including the new Ultimate Spiderman that is currently running. Please add seasons 3, 4, and 5 soon!

This review is written by a blind guy, so don't expect much in the way of what you can look forward to visually. I can tell you that shows like Spider-Man served as my comic books as a kid. I still enjoy this one very much because it doesn't talk down to anyone, and unlike other toons, this one has quite a few lengthy story arcs per season. John Semper, a producer/story editor, was told not to make the show serialized because kids just wouldn't be able to follow. I was always glad he did. Some network execs don't give our kiddos enough credit. They never have. He took a risk, but I think these types of stories are just one of the reasons why the show was such a success.

Amazon has finally made all five seasons of this hit series available, so you might as well buy them while the buying's good, Spidy fans. The only negative thing I have to add concerns amazon not placing a few episodes in chronological order. Head over to the Marvel Comics database, look for Spider-Man: The Animated series, and you're good to go because they've got a proper chronological episode guide. Most of these are fine where they are, but amazon has them listed in airing order which makes things a little crazy from time to time. I'm just happy to finally be able to own this masterpiece.

So far during my binge watching, the sound quality has been excellent. All the recaps are included, which is also a fun little bonus. If you caught the smash hit Spectacular Spider-Man series a few years ago and haven't seen this one yet, you need to buy a few episodes and try this out too. I think it was one of the best 90's animated series alongside Fox's X-Men. It's a more serious take on the webslinger than that Ultimate Spider-Man show Disney is churning out these days.
