Welcome to the Spider-Man(1981) cartoon guide! This early 80s animated series
was the second Spider-Man cartoon after the original 1967 series. The series'character
designs and some of the same voices (not Spider-Man himself) were later to be used in the
more famous Spider-Man And His Amazing
Friends animated series. Designed to follow on from the 1967 Spider-Man show
in syndication, and featuring the same cast of regular characters, the show chronicles
the adventures of Peter Parker as Spider-Man during his college years. His responsibility
to be Spider-man causes problems with his work, his studies, and his romantic involvement
with Betty Brant. Other characters included Peter's Aunt May and J. Jonah Jameson-editor
of the Daily Bugle. Spidey faced off against some of his classic foes, including the Green
Goblin, Doctor Octopus and the Chameleon.

- The show is coming to DVD
in the UK (available from Amazon.co.uk)
This will be a "Region
2" meaning that it will not work in most
United States DVD
players. The DVD has been incorrectly titled
"Spider-Man 5000". ("5000" is the
original production number
for the show, if you are
wondering where it came from.)
