this brings back many memories!,
This review is from: Spider-Man 5000 Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
i felt i had to wait for years to see this particular "spiderman" cartoon series surface on dvd and what a viewing pleasure it has been! this takes me back many years to the early 1980s when i would rush home from school to see my favourite "marvel" superhero. great days.
all the best villains are here: the green goblin, dr. doom( in 6 episodes no less), doctor octopus, the sandman, kingpin and many others. i feel that the writers and animators have done a good job in re-creating the drama and action that is in the comics.
the plots are fairly straightforward but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. the theme music is one of the best i've heard out of all the superhero cartoons i have seen. it is a catchy and well-written piece.
the animation in "spiderman" is exactly the same as in the other series around the same year, "spiderman and his amazing friends." i'm guessing that some of the same production crew worked on both.
as the previous review mentioned, i hope that the first 2 volumes of "spiderman" 1981 have been improved as the colour problem was fairly evident, sadly.
however, it is a mere quibble and shalln't affect my enjoyment of this classic superhero cartoon series.
