This box-set contains all the episodes from the 1980s cartoon "Spiderman and His Amazing Friends". Like many others approaching middle-age, it was my Saturday morning favourite as a child. Watching it again really took me back to those times. I also couldn't get that catchy theme tune out of my head!
There are 24 episodes from all 3 seasons on 4 discs. Spiderman is aided by fellow super-heroes Ice-Man and Fire-Star. Most of the well-known villains (Green Goblin, Kingpin, Sandman, Mysterio, etc) feature throughout the series, and we even meet other good guys like Captain America, S.H.I.E.L.D. and the X-Men.
The animation looks a bit dated now especially when compared with the 1990s "Spiderman The Animated Series", which is yet to be fully released on DVD. However, Spiderman and His Amazing Friends was very enjoyable, least of all because things weren't made unnecessarily complicated as was done in the 1990s series with bizarre storylines involving Carnage, Madam Web and multiple Spidermen from different dimensions!
This series represents what Spiderman cartoons should be - simple to watch and fun. I recommend it highly.
