Up Down

Still filling in for Alex (our esteemed Uncle Gorby).

Perfectly timed to help me along while working on the upcoming Marvel Update, it seems that the Spider-Man Animates Series is available for free online!

Today’s Link:


Spider-Man: The Animated Series was originally shown in the 1990s on Fox. I’d watch it every day after school and dance around in my footy jammies pretending to have webshooters.

Featuring a variety of Marvel cameos, from the Black Cat to Punisher and the Avengers, the show was the primary medium for my early Marvel education.

Now you can see 65 episodes of the series online at the above link. There’s also a single episode of the 1967 series up.


Still Bored? Visit Uncle Gorby’s Archive for More Links or Visit Uncle Gorby’s Corner in the Forum!

    By far the best blog update of the week! ;)
    Thank you so much for sharing this. I look forward to seeing the Lizard again (the only character I vividly remember). Go Spidey!

    This is pretty cool, since it doesn’t seem Marvel plans to release the complete series on DVD anytime soon. Do they have any other series, like Fantastic Four or Iron Man?

    I did a little investigating, and the Marvel website has all the episodes of the 1996 Hulk show, the Silver Surfer and Avengers shows, and the Fantastic Four show from the 2000s.

    They also have the Japanese Spider-Man show: http://marvel.com/videos/browse/movietv/128/japanese_spiderman

    And the X-Men show:


    but you’re totally spoiling my upcoming Uncle Gorby updates! haha

    Hey, do you know if they changed the intro on this? It’s got a different song than I remember, I think. And I don’t remember the 3d. Maybe I’m just remembering things oddly.

    I distinctly remember the intro being changed partway through the series, and it seems that the early episodes have this second version at the beginning on Marvel’s website. You can tell because there are clips from much later episodes, featuring the Punisher, the giant Spider-Slayer thing, more 3D effects, etc.

    thanks for confirming that I’m not crazy!

    That’s so funny they actually have the Japanese shows on their site. I was going to post a montage that I recently saw on youtube…man that show is horrible looking. He jumps down and does pose after pose after pose after…

    One of the best cartoons in the 90’s. IMHO, even with today’s cartoon standards, this is still the best. I hope Marvel release this on dvd when the new Spider-man reboot comes out in theaters.


    avatar Ian replied on February 15th, 2011 at 3:43 am:

    They’ve previously released various arcs (like the venom saga) on dvd, but I haven’t seen any complete or sequential collections. Would be good of them to do!

    Ha ha… I was just surfing around and took a glimpse at these remarks. I can’t believe there’s still this much fascination. Thanks for crafting articles about this.

    I remember the intro just like that personally including the 3D, but then my memory might be playing up in my age (this link deff made me feel old.

    I probably just didn't remember it. That voice is how I'll always think of spider-man as sounding.

    I like the big mech in the Japanese show, somehow they combined Spiderman with Power Rangers.

    No you're not crazy, it's actually all of us that are crazy. Cool info though Marc, I must have only seen the second half of the show's run before then.
