Great for many reasons. My favorite: "Slip him the pill, baby!"

morgan freeman learned a lot about acting after this.

someone please find spidey versus the one two punch gang.
Menudo con queso
Wow, I remember this now. It always seemed so existential and bleak in an oblique way: "Nobody knows who you aaaaare." That, and getting no thanks whatsoever for doing the right thing.

Pretty good preparation for real life for the young'ns, now that I think about it.

Well gee, Spidey, maybe you'd get attacked by supervillains less often if you didn't go to baseball games in your costume. You have a secret identity for a reason.

The Wall has the greatest origin of any character ever, and Morgan Freeman's "I can be pretty stupid when I want to be!" makes me wish there was an Infinite Stars button.

where IS he coming from? besides queens

The Wall is the best villain ever. Is there an origin story?

Normal happy high school student, incredible chemistry blunder, predilection towards evil.

Xenocide
Yes. There was an actual Spidey Super Stories comic that adapted these little episodes.

I don't have a scan handy, but we are told that The Wall was once "a happy high school student with a part time job." This job involved wearing a lab coat while stacking bricks up for no discernible reason. Then there was an explosion and all the bricks fell on him. Which, for obvious reasons, turned him into a superhuman wall guy.

That origin story is almost as stupid as Sandman's origin story in Spiderman 3. In fact I think if The Wall were the sole villain of the movie it would have been an improvement.

-1 star for reminding me how much Spiderman 3 sucked spider balls.

I think Marvel only gave PBS the license to use Spider-Man on the condition they not the actor playing Spidey speak.

Considering the budget of children's programming I can understand why Marvel would be concerned with the quality of Spidey's voice acting.

Still I'm not sure the shitty mime Electric Company hired protected Spider-Man's image.

Even as a child I imagined this Spider-Man to be Peter Parker's mute, retarded uncle.

Formerly a happy high school student involved in a freak accident with a number of mute retards and maybe some toxic waste

Why does a man wearing a full face mask buy a hot dog, anyway?

He likes the smell

I prefer this version of Spiderman to Marvel's version. I also like the Spiderman who turned up during pantomimes to eat the nits out of the children's hair.

Electric Company was the Laugh In of children's programming.

I'm not sure of what exactly kids were supposed to learn from this.

If only they'd done one where he fought Carrion in the shadow of the Unisphere...

This is too ridiculous to watch all the way, and yet, I'm going to. My brain will selectively filter it down to fifteen seconds of memory anyway.
j lzrd / swift idiot
Oh my god oh my god oh my god, I shouldn't have done it, but I did.

Someone should slap me with a fifty dollar fine, because I can be pretty stupid when I want to be. Hubba hubba.
