    • The Lizard story is a condensed version of The Amazing Spider-Man #6.

      The original version of the story has Jameson travelling to Florida with Peter Parker, and Dr. Connors becoming the Lizard in an attempt to regrow his missing arm. In the animated version Connors has two arms.

    • During the scene where Electro rides the power lines after robbing Jameson's house you can see a crease in the original background painting where it was folded during storage. This is even more evident in the restored footage on the DVD set where you can even make out original brush strokes in some backgrounds.

      The artists involved in making the series probably never envisioned their work would be seen in this level of detail, assuming little things like this would be washed out in the relatively blurry television sets of the time.

    • The Lizard is called "The Lizard-Man." His alter-ego, Dr. Curtis Connors, is named as "Dr. Curtis Connor."

    • First appaerence of Electro and the Lizard man

    • "Where Crawls the Lizard" spawned a sequel -- "Connor's Reptiles" -- in Season 3.

      The opening shot of "Electro the Human Lightning Bolt" shows a group of buildings (the shortest of which has a setback roof similar to the Standard Oil Building) standing beneath gloomy, menacing storm clouds. This backdrop wasn't used again in Season 1, but was frequently seen over the other two seasons ... along with a psychedelic twilight version.
