    • This series is also known as Spider-Man: The New Animated Series, since the '94 series was sometimes known as Spider-Man: The Animated Series, and they couldn't name the series the same thing.

    • Jeff Matsuda, the current producer for The Batman, pitched several series designs for this show back when it was to be based after Ultimate Spider-Man.

    • This is the first Marvel cartoon series that has a 'teen' target age group.

    • Greg Johnson, the writer of Spider-Man (2003), also wrote for The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and X-Men Evolution.

    • Edward Asner, who plays Officer Barr, also played J. Jonah Jameson in the 90's Spider-Man series.

    • When Electro enters the party, the head protester from "Heroes and Villains" can be seen.

    • The scene where Spider-Man is changing on the roof, saying "Hot roof!" is a direct take from "Ultimate Spider-Man" #22.

    • Canada airdate: October 10, 2003.

    • All the women on the show have either shoulder length hair or hair that's tied back. This was done so their hair won't cut through them when animated.

    • Rino Romano voiced Peter Parker/Spider-Man on the short lived Spider-Man Unlimited.

    • This is the third time that Jennifer Hale has voiced a character(s) on a Spider-Man cartoon. Even though she may not be a permanent member of the cast.

    • The show is done using 3D computer animation technology and techniques, and is rendered to look similar to traditional cel animation. According to a behind-the-scenes documentary on the DVD release, the plan was originally to animate the characters in traditional CG, similar to ReBoot and other series, but it was decided the characters would look more appealing if rendered in traditional 2D cell animation style.
