Spider-Man: The New Animated Series

Show Summary

Spider-Man, the animated series, continues where the successful live action feature film of the same name left off. The series follows the adventures of superhero Peter Parker and his friends, Harry Osborn and Mary Jane Watson, during their first year of college at Empire State University. Parker must juggle academics, a job as a Web designer/photographer for The Daily Bugle and an on-again, off-again relationship with the love of his life, all while fighting to protect the world from super-villains. Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser, M.D.), Ian Ziering (Beverly Hills 90210), and Lisa Loeb (folk-pop singer) show off their vocal talents in this new, thrilling computer-animated series.

  • amazing

    I honestly thought it was amazing. Just finished it on Netflix and i was blown away how they left it. I was honestly quite mad too. It was a great series that should have continued
  • Good show that didn't get a second chance.

    For all the crap shows MTV have renewed over the years this series should had got at least one more summer run to tie up loose ends instead of the cliff ending it got. As for the series itself I would rank this series behind Spider-Man the animated series 1994 and The Spectacular Spider-Man. Simply because the show tried to focus on Peter Parker's life outside of being Spider-Man while still having all the web swinging goodness. CGI isn't bad for the main characters and action set pieces certain people models and city enviroment repeat but that's expected in a CGI cartoon series. In the series 13 episode run each episode was good, the only episode I wasn't really feeling was "Keeping Secrets" because it was kinda predictable in what would happen.

    Voice cast: Neil Patrick Harris does a great job voicing Spider-Man(in the show and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) Lisa Loeb and Ian Ziering are good as Mary Jane Watson and Harry Osborn and the chemistry with the 3 made the show go when Peter wasn't Spider-Man. And it would be interesting to see where things would had gone with the love triangle with Peter, Mary Jane and Indy to Harry finding out the guy he's blaming for his father's death is his roommate and best friend.

    The show had a lot of potential to expand the Spider-Man universe with the storylines that were in season one, what could had been in season two and other unused super villains. I believe if this show was on any other network it would probably got another season or two because let's be real MTV is the teenage girl network and it has been that way since the late 1990s. Since most teenage girls don't want to watch a show with a guy in red and blue spandex fighting crime the show suffer in the ratings department.

    Like The Spectacular Spider-Man the show got cut down before it took off. Here's hoping Disney retool the Ultimate Spider-Man or just give Spidey a new show to show off his greatness.moreless
  • spiderman mtv

    This cartoon is darker and more realistic than other spidey is the best spidey CGI is looking actions are theme is superb!
  • Spidey Is Awesome.

    This was my favorite out of all the spider man shows. One reason is because Stan Lee does a voice in this one. I loved how the graphics made it look so real. The cell shading was a very important part in it. I wish they were going to make a 2nd and 3rd and 4th season. If you watch it I promise you wont regret it.
  • Spider Man

    So there was another Spiderman animated television series after a 4 year gap. In this latest series, the visuals have been upgraded. They have used CGI + cell shaded visuals in this series. It creates a modern look to it.

    It consists of only 13 episodes (only one season) But there are many villains in store for you. The main villains include: Electro, The Lizard, Silver Sable, Kingpin, and Kraven The Hunter. There are many other villains too that Spiderman will fight with. But the bad thing is that there is no Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom, Carnage or other powerful super villains in this one. But it's still good. The fights are good, and sometimes intense. The background music and the dialogues will make it better.

    You will find Peter Parker (of course) in this series. And Mary Jane and Harry Osborn. There's a new character called Indy who plays the roll of Peter's love interest. You wont find Aunt May at all. Peter Parker seems changed a little bit. In the past, he looked more geekish, but now, he looks like an average high-school kid.

    Kids can watch this show, but mainly this show is for teenagers. Well, it depends on the kids though. But any Spiderman fan will like the series.

    Visual: 8/10 New improved CGI + cell shaded graphics. Its good. New look to Spiderman toons.

    Audio: 8/10 Background music + theme song rocks.

    Story: 7/10 I thought the story was very weird in some episodes (not like spiderman at all)

    Characters: 7/10 Good characters: Spiderman, Harry Osborn.

    Overall: 8/10 Like I said before, a great animated series. But its too short and the ending will leave you wanting for moremoreless
