This week, we’re joined by Space Captain Steve of Blade Kitten and Hal Hefner of Heavy Metal’s Gates, as we talk about Spider-Man through the ages! We go over pretty much every Spider-Man animated cartoon ever made, and even some of the live action ones. We talk about all incarnations of Spidey, Peter’s love life, and our ideal production of Spider-Man.
In a bonus round, we’re joined by 1UP’s Bob Mackey, where we make a discovery of something that was overlooked in the main part of the show. Could this episode be…TO BE CONTINUED!?!??
Again I ask; considering how far up he is, what exactly is he swinging from?
Why is Dr. Doom sharing a laugh with Bob Cratchet?
And now for the proper episode for this week. Tom Revor joins us yet again to talk about one of the earliest Marvel Productions cartoons, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. While most of the episodes were finished at David DePatie’s old animation studio here in the good ol’ US of A, three very special episodes were done by Toei in Japan.
How to draw spider webbing
Backdoor pilot episodes
Marrying a supermodel
Aunt May’s secret villainous side
In this series, Spider-Man creates a new suit that looks nothing like Spider-Man and travels to Counter Earth, where he meets villains that have nothing do with anything that Spider-Man fans want to see. Except for Carnage and Venom. …oh wait.
Also, Spider-Man can apparently scale a launch tower faster than a shuttle can take off. He also announces that he’s taking his pal Peter Parker along, so that nobody on Earth would become suspicious of Parker’s sudden disappearance.
Oh, and Peter’s hair totally looks like Fighter from Final Fantasy.
