Spiderman Unlimited

 

SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED aired on Fox Kids in 1999 and 2000 – and was soundly tromped by the competition, a little thing calledPOKEMON.

I had a great time ramrodding SMU and got a kick out of working in a new Spidey Universe. Why call it that? Well, the best way to answer is to give a brief rundown of the show, which features Spidey and a new “family.” Naoko Yamada-Jones is his new landlady and the little boy is her son Shayne. Mary Jane’s not around for this series, but not because she doesn’t want to be. See, Spidey’s in New York, but it’s a different New York.

Thanks to Venom and Carnage, he’s stranded on the world known as Counter-Earth, where animals are the rulers and humans the underclass. Spidey, of course, wants nothing more than to get home–but as Stan Lee once said, “with great power comes great responsibility,” and when John Jameson (aka Man-Wolf for those in the know) calls upon the webspinner to help the humans who are fighting for freedom…well, what do you think he’ll do?

Before I forget, here it is, back by popular demand–the theme song from the original ’60s SPIDER-MAN cartoon series. For those of you who get the same nostalgic tingle I do at the very memory of it, download the zip!
