Media Release — Fanfare is in order, webheads, as the legendary and pleasantly nostalgic “Spider-Man” animated series from 1967 makes its Marvel.com debut! Starting today, kids of all ages can stream episodes of the show right here on Marvel.com, with “new” episodes going up every Thursday!
First airing on the ABC television network in 1967, the series revolves around the scientific-minded teenager Peter Parker who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, develops amazing strength and spider-like powers. He decides to become a crime-fighting, costumed super hero; all the while dealing with his personal problems and the insecurities resulting from being a teenager. Each episode features two parts so you get twice as many web-slinging adventures in each video!
Episode 1 features “The Power of Dr. Octopus” (Dr. Octopus kidnaps Spider-Man in order to hold the city ransom) and “Sub-Zero for Spidey” (Spider-Man battles ice creatures to save his city from freezing). We know you can’t wait to hear that unmistakable theme song. So what are you waiting for?
