The ultimate "Spiderman" cartoon show.
I still retain vague memories of watching this "Spiderman" cartoon show from the early 1980s. To me, it was like watching the comics come to life. Bearing in mind how long ago this was made, the animation still holds up very well. The plots in themselves may not be as detailed or as mature as the "Spiderman" show from the 1990s but it doesn't matter to me. There is a whole gallery of villains to watch: The Green Goblin, Dr. Doom, Dr. Octopus, Kingpin, The Red Skull, The Lizard, Mysterio, The Black Cat and other more obscure adversaries. It was slightly unexpected to see Dr. Doom in so many episodes from this show - a total of 6. After all, he has never been a regular "Spiderman" villain. The reason why he was included in so many episodes, was due to the huge following of the "Star Wars" character Darth Vader. There are so many great episodes here to choose from. There are 26 altogether and I would rate 19 from being excellent to very good. The music from this "Spiderman" show is very good as it suits the style and the tone. I was glad when all the episodes were released on DVD, as video releases were fairly seldom. I shall always rate the 1981 "Spiderman" cartoon show as the definitive one.
