Up Down

The Marvel list is up! And what better way to celebrate than with some retro Spidey?

Today’s Link:

http://marvel.com/videos/browse/movietv/98/spider-man_1967

Spider-Man started airing in 1967 and was produced until 1970. Featuring the best TV theme song ever made (seriously, try to get that one out of your head!), Space Ghost and Scooby Doo style voice-over and plots, and some strange (at times even psychedelic) animation, it’s a show with a lasting legacy that’s still fun today.

In fact, I think it’s a lot more fun than most modern cartoons. It’s zany and crazy without making me feel like ADHD in overdrive. And the music is just tops. Groovy!

Paul Soles as Spider-Man is something you’ve got to hear, with a deep dramatic voice often slipping into unintentionally(?) hilarious deadpan.

Every episode is now up for free at Marvel.com, looking and sounding as good as ever. (Much better than that Youtube clip!)

I’ll be back tomorrow to make the official rundown for the Marvel list and all the related site updates, for now, have a great night! Enjoy the show!

    I actually bought the complete series on DVD. My first memory of US comic cartoon was the episode with Mysterio (ep 2 or 4 I think)

    I've been watching these since you did your first Marvel animated post as this is without a doubt the best animated series to come out of Marvel. Love it.

    I have to admit, I thought it would be the 1990s series, but this one has become my personal favorite as well.

    Despite being a kid in the 90s I was brought up on a VHS collection of this one first so I can remember every episode almost word for word :D

    now THAT is how you do a theme song! Have you heard that remixed version before with a bunch of techno sounding remixing awesomeness? I first heard it on one of the original Tony Hawk games. I’m TOTALLY going to watch this one.

    Aerosmith did a decent cover of it too as a B-side that is quiet hard to track down.

    I first heard Paul Cibis do this joke on the Nerdist Podcast: Comedians You Should Know
    http://www.nerdist.com/2010/12/nerdist-podcast-51-comedians-you-should-know/
    He does a much stronger delivery here and this is a GREAT collection of standup if you’re into that type of thing…which you should be :)
