Spider-Man is a series that ran from September 12, 1981 to March 6, 1982. It is the second series to focus on Spider-Man after Spider-Man.


The series helped launch Marvel Productions, the successor to DePatie-Freleng Enterprises that created Fantastic Four and Spider-Woman.

Doctor Doom was given a recurring role following the success of Star Wars and the resemblance of Doom to Darth Vader.

Additional Voices

Linda Gary and Neil Ross reprised their roles for Spider-Man, though Gary died during the course of the series. Jack Angel also appeared in the series. Ross also played Osborn on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, though not Green Goblin.


Although airing concurrently with Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends the other series was seen as a sequel to this one. Both series used the same animation studio using the same style. Green Goblin appeared in both and both series had him transform into the goblin rather than wear a costume as the comics did.

Cementing a tie, the other series' episode "The Prison Plot" used footage from "When Magneto Speaks...People Listen" as a flashback.

These two along with The Incredible Hulk are considered part of the Marvel Productions Universe.


There were twenty-six episodes total. The series ran along Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends as part of Marvel Action Universe, not to be confused with the 1990s The Marvel Action Universe.
