Amazing Spiderman Cartoon

This television series bridges the first few years of Amazing Spider-man and Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spider-man. Peter Parker is a teenager living in contemporary New York, as in Bendis' Ultimate version, but he dates his best friend Gwen Stacey, as in the original Amazing Spider-man comics, and Mary-Jane Watson is "just a friend" who isn't interested in dating him, at least not exclusively.

Many of Peter's original supporting cast, including Flash Thompson, have been translated into modern terms. Especially interesting is the fact that at least some of Parker's former supporting cast members are now people of colour. Liz Allen is Latina and Ned Lee (formerly "Leeds) is Korean. This reflects the tendency in Marvel's Ultimate line to introduce more diversity by altering existing characters (e.g., Nick Fury is Black, Colossus is gay, etc.).

The first season follows several different plot arc familiar to long-time Spider-man readers: Venom's creation and his complex relationship Eddie Brock (retconned into the early part of Spider-man's career), his budding romance with Gwen Stacey, and the first appearance of the Green Goblin. The series has aired 1 season so far (13 episodes), and a second season has been ordered.

Spiderman Cartoon

The first time I saw Spiderman in motion I was about 8 years old when saw the classic carton “Spiderman and his amazing friends”. I spent the night over a friends house, browsed through his movie collection, spotted it, and put it on. It was probably one of the biggest disappointments for an animated cartoon series for me back then. The opening theme was corny even for me at the time. Slow paced fighting and action and almost unbearable dialogue. I gave it credit for being a so called “classic” cartoon but to me it didn’t do justice to one of favorite marvel comic characters as a kid. Will they ever show Spiderman the way he should look? Acrobatic, fast, strong, and quick reflexes. This is what I was expecting and hoping to one day see with my own eyes.

Spiderman would get his second chance in my mind to be shown in correct form when I was browsing the old classic TV channels one night. I was up real late, and should have went to sleep 5 hours ago. I was probably trying to catch another episode of “Secret Squirrel” when the masked hero suddenly popped up on the screen. I could have woke everyone up in the house with my laughter after I caught a glimpse of this show. No disrespect to the people that first tried to bring Spiderman to life, but man did this look like crap in my opinion. “This guy just throws a string around and catches villains?” I thought to myself. From the white stringed spider web to the funny mask of the costume, surely this cant be the best concepts of Spiderman they can come up with?

Bugs Bunny thinks that Thanksgiving is for eating carrots. But it seems Yosamite Sam is more interested in eating rabbit. Wow. This is what Warner Bros cooked up for Thanksgiving? A clip show? Shit, we spend our hard earned cash on Marvin the Martian bendy straws and for Thanksgiving we get 5 minutes of original footage in return? For shame, WB. Where's your holiday spirit?

When Mel Blanc passed away, the folks at Warner Brothers ran a touching double-truck color ad showing Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Foghorn Leghorn, Tweety, Sylvester, Yosemite Sam and a few others, all with heads bowed and voices stilled. They, along with the Flintstones' Barney Rubble, were the most famous of his much publicized "thousand voices."

In truth, Mel probably didn't have a thousand voices or even a hundred. But he had plenty and an amazing percentage of them gave breath to classic cartoon characters in very funny films. The great skill of Mel Blanc was as an actor: It is one thing to affect a funny voice — quite another to mold a coherent, believable characterization with it and to wring every drop of humor out of every line.

He had to be good. When he wasn't doing cartoons, he was dashing from mike to mike in the studios that broadcast the top network comedy radio programs. Appearing on The Jack Benny Program, as Mel did for a couple of decades, was like playing second for the Yankees at their prime.

Mel was the first great cartoon voice actor and, in many ways, the best. Daws Butler perhaps had superior technique, and Paul Frees may have been more versatile — but Mel was the guy who made it an art. He showed everyone how it should be done, back when nobody knew how it should be done. There are around fifty good reasons why those classic WB cartoons will live forever, and Mel Blanc is at least a dozen of those reasons.
