Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #8: Spider-Man

Greatest TV Cartoon Theme Songs #8: Spider-Man

Spider-Man was the first animated adaptation of the Spider-Man comic book series, created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko (first seen in Amazing Fantasy #15, August 1962). Season 1 contained mostly stories involving classic Spider-Man villains from the comic book series, who, when caught in Spider-Man’s web, were left for the Police to find, along with a note signed, “Courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.” Stan Lee, who created the character, served as story consultant for the first season of the show.

What happens you bring Marvel Comics together with the Man of Action team? That is, the folks behind the Wolverine, Iron Man, Ben 10, Generator Rex, and Ultimate Alien? Spidey Sense tingling!! That’s right, the result is the upcoming Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, bringing the Disney superhero to Disney XD later next year. Just as Marvel readies the relaunch of Peter Parker on the big screen in the summer of 2012, super villains like the Green Goblin and Venom will be trying to take over the animated world, as well. As we learned from a Spider-Man sneak peek showing during C2E2 2011, the new toon takes place in the early days of Spiderman’s run, where the Web Slinger is still getting used to his powers, turning to supporting characters like Nick Fury to become The Ultimate Spider-Man.

The Ultimate Spider-Man

At C2E2 2011, Spidey has taken a starring role. Not just the latest comic book adventures, and not just with the upcoming film relaunch – Marvel’s Web Head is jumping into an all new animated series, The Ultimate Spider-Man, and the lucky folks in attendance were able to get the first glimpse sneak peek of the toon in action. Thankfully, we had a few well planted ToonBarn spies in the audience, ready to bring you the visuals of the Man of Action series, whose producers include comic book legends like Paul Dini, Jeph Loeb, and Brian Michael Bendis. We’ve got J. Jonah Jameson continuing his campaign against Spider-Man, Mary Jane Watson hard at work, and Spidey addressing crimes in the Marvel icon’s typical fashion. With great power comes great responsibility, both of which lead to great animation. Check it out!
