The series' legacy lives on. The Saban Entertainment produced ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited'', which is considered by many to be a sequel despite plot discrepancies, a little over a year later. Not only is it one of many '90s cartoons responsible for introducing a new generation of fans into the world of comic books, but several of its plot elements were later integrated into [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy the blockbuster films]] that followed it. And despite getting ScrewedByTheNetwork, [[LongRunner at 65 episodes, this was for the longest time the single longest lasting Spider-Man cartoon]] until ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' and the second-longest Marvel AnimatedAdaptation after [[WesternAnimation/XMen the X-Men]]. Even after being canceled, it continues to have reruns going to this day in the U.S. and in various other parts of the globe. (Of course, the reruns are even ''more'' censored.) It also inspired the visual style of Ride/TheAmazingAdventuresOfSpiderMan ride at Universal Studios' Island of Adventure theme park, even after it's 2012 refurbishment.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Creator/ABCFamily run of the show heavily censored several episodes for being TooSoon due to 9/11. Some episodes were even completely taken out. Thankfully, later runs on the channel (as well as it's run on Creator/ToonDisney) would be shown uncut with all episodes intact and shown.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Spider-Man tells the newly-acquired symbiote to make him look like "the guy from Aerosmith", and it obliges - with a riff the show's theme playing in the background.

* AmazonianBeauty: Felicia Hardy starts out as an ordinary friend and classmate of Peter, then becomes the Black Cat thanks to a SuperSerum based on ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's. As a result, her golden locks [[PowerDyesYourHair turn]] white, she gains increased strength, acrobatic prowess, and reflexes (not unlike that of Spidey and Cap), [[AdrenalineMakeover her personality changes to that of a self-confident]] FemmeFatale (complete with a huskier and more sultry voice), and she grows taller and more muscular. This change in her physique is readily apparent thanks to the [[FormFittingWardrobe skin-tight]] [[HellBentForLeather leather]] SpyCatsuit Felicia wears, as well as her change from her civilian persona being accompanied by a quick TransformationSequence where her [[PowerGlows body glows a pale yellow]] [[GrowingMusclesSequence as her muscles grow.]]

** The show had a crossover with the 90's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' animated series. It was considered a big deal because it was a completely different animation studio involving the then current roster from X-Men in a show that was not their own. Even more impressive was the effort put in to keeping all the same cast (save for one, Gambit, presumably for contractual or scheduling reasons) for the sake of continuity. Even more fun, the crossover remains in continuity for Spider-Man, as {{Storm}} returns during the series' adaptation of the ''ComicBook/SecretWars'' crossover event.
