Spiderman (1967)

The 1967 Spider-Man cartoon was Canadian-American animated-cartoon television series that ran for 52 episodes (25 minutes per episode). It stared Paul Soles (Rocket Robin Hood, The Smokey Bear Show, The Little Brown Burro, King of the Beasts, The Marvel Super Heroes, Original Spider-Man, The Trolls and the Christmas Express, Take Me Up to the Ball Game, Willy McBean and his Magic Machine, Festival of Family Classics, The Reluctant Dragon and Mr. Toad Show, Noah’s Animals, Iron Man, The King Kong Showas Peter Parker/Spider-Man.

The first season dealt primarily with Peter’s job at the Daily Bugle, focusing on his relationship with Jameson, his romance with receptionist Betty Brant, and often being called into action as his alter ego. Peter’s life, apart from the Bugle office and his Aunt May’s Forest Hills home, was rarely dealt with in early episodes. Although he was never seen at college, he would sometimes visit professors he knew (such as the opening of “Sub-Zero for Spidey,” when he went to see Professor Smartyr). Peter’s character (blue suit, yellow vest, white shirt and red tie) was designed by Steve Ditko and art consultant John Romita, Sr.

Season-one stories mainly involved classic Spider-Man villains from the comic-book series, whose captures were often accompanied by a note signed by “your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.” Stan Lee was the story consultant for this season. Seasons two and three, produced by Ralph Bakshi, almost entirely eliminated villains from the comic book as a cost-cutting measure in favor of generic, green-skinned, magical monsters; this enabled the reuse of stock footage from Rocket Robin Hood, another animated series produced by Bakshi.
