    Living on the edge
    Fighting crime, spinning webs
    Swinging from the highest ledge
    He can leap above our heads

    Ahh, ahh! (x2)

    Villains on the rise
    and the city's victimized
    Looking up with no surprise
    Arriving in the speed of time

    Ahh, ahh! (x2)

    Spec-tac-ular, Spec-tac-ular Spider-Man (x2) Spectacular! Spec-tac-ular, Spec-tac-ular Spider-Man (x2)

    This is the greatest Spider-Man cartoon. It perfectly brings the old Lee/Ditko stories to a modern time. The voice acting is superb, and the animation is quite fluid. Check it out! Expand

    A really great show, it's fantastic, amazing, dare i say, spectacular. Of all other Spider shows this one is most deepest and concentrated on characters, and every character has a great personality that you enjoy to watch. But, as a 90's Spider-man this show doesn't have ending. This is really sad, and what makes it even worse... Ultimate Spider-man. But a great show anyway, that i like to watch again every year.

    A spectacular serie that will be missed
    Ever since I was little, I've been a fan of Spider-Man and watched all the series. But this is the
    best Spider-Man adaption ever made. The show is great and manages to deliver what Spider-Man fans has been wanting. The design is something new and special to the Spider-Man series, in this serie we come across a lot of the villains from the series such as Venom, Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Rhino, Lizard, Shocker, Electro, Vulture, Mysterio and many more!

    It is a big shame that this show has been cancelled, this animated Spider-Man serie is favorable and deserved more seasons. I am not sure if it will ever happen, but I really hope they will go back to this serie and continue to make more episodes because it is finding such a good animated show these days.

    Spectacular Spider-Man rips off some scenes of the 'Spider-Man Trilogy' but this cartoon has enough action, good storyline, amazing characters and entertaining episodes to overcome those flaws. Expand

    The best Spider-man TV show. I only found out about this show after it had been canceled so that was a bummer. This show is funny, entertaining, and really feels like a comic book on screen which is just great. The story was really cool and it really was just a great show. Expand
