Marvel Comics' most memorable character, Spider-Man (Spidey for short), got the star treatment in animation in 1967. This cartoon premiered at around the same time as The Fantastic Four and the Marvel Superheroes Hour. The theme song is one of the most memorable television theme songs ever, and has been re-recorded plenty of times. When high school student Peter Parker is bitten by a radioactive spider at a lab demonstration, he finds himself owner of some new powers, namely the proportionate strength, speed, and agility of a natural spider, plus a sixth "spider"-sense that enables him to sense danger, and the ability to climb on walls.
September 1967 - June 1970
