We all know the story. Boy goes on class field trip, boy meets radioactive spider, spider bites boy, boy develops super powers instead of cancer, boy becomes Spider-man. It's a story as well known as Superman and one would think that it would get stale. However creator Greg Weisman(Gargoyles) has taken a shot at his vision of spider-man and what a great vision it is.
The show starts out with Spider-man(a teenager) having spent the past summer fighting crime is looking forward to shedding his form nerd persona in exchange for top man on campus. Things dont go so well and he remains on the bottom of the social ladder. Add on to that supervillains have started coming out left and right and Spidey's has his arms full.
The character designs on the show are incredbly simplistic but because of this the animation is very fluid and seamless which is how spidey should move. The best thing is that the show is made so that it can appeal to literally everyone. The kids will watch it for spidey, Teens would watch it for the teenage angst the characters go through(which are more accurate here than in the so called "teen dramas"), and adults can marvel at the mature subject matter that the show doesnt dumb down. With cartoons nowadays seemingly focusing on nothing moore than loud noises Spectacular Spider-man is a gem set to be a classic.
