** The field trip flashback in "Intervention" is an almost line-for-line, shot-for-shot recreation of the scene in the first movie, albeit with Gwen instead of Mary Jane. The rest of the flashback borrows a few more iconic scenes from both the movies and the comics, with a few of the lines changed to avoid a lawsuit.

* FaceHeelTurn - Eddie Brock was originally Peter's friend at the start of season one, but over time he developed a burning hatred for Peter Parker AND Spider-Man. After he bonds with the symbiote, he learns that they're the same person and becomes Venom.
** A lot of other villains count too like the Vulture (who became a villain after Norman stole his work), Mark, Colonel Jupiter, Doctor Oc, Eltro, etc.

For those who either miss or missed out watching this show on TV, it has become one of the few ''Spider-Man'' TV shows to have all its episodes released on DVD, and the first one to receive a Blu-Ray release.[[note]]Regarding the [=DVDs=], the first season received four single-disc volumes, then a 2-Disc set of the complete season. The second season only has the former option. The 4-Disc Blu-Ray contains the complete series, and currently remains the only way to buy all the episodes together.[[/note]] Though strangely it is one of the few Spiderman cartoons to be absent from (Canadian) Netflix, despite being among the most popular.

Added DiffLines:

* ColorMotif - Greg Weisman deliberately used color to denote different aspects of Peter's life. They appear to break down as such:
** Blue represents Peter's personal identity, between his blue bedroom, blue shirt, and the blue on the Spider-Man costume.
** Yellow seems to represent safety, friendship and family: yellow house, yellow school and biology classroom (his best subject), Gwen and Eddie both have blonde hair (No longer visible on Eddie after he becomes Venom), Aunt May dresses in yellow and feeds Peter banana-cream pie, even Jameson, Peter's source of employment, dresses in yellow.
** Green represents danger: many of the villains dress in green (And the main villain even has "Green" in his name), even down to Doc Ock wearing green goggles, and the Osborns all wear green, while Oscorp is largely lit with green light. Colonel Jupiter has a green and yellow costume, denoting him as an apparent ally who becomes an enemy.
** Red may represent new things in Peter's life which could be good or bad: MJ has red hair, Vulture (the first of a trend of supervillains) has red armor, and the red on Spider-Man's costume.
** This might be reaching a bit, but Black may represent moral ambiguity: Black Cat is an obvious example, while Venom eventually becomes more anti-heroic in the comics, something which may have eventually happened on the show as well, had it not been cancelled. Further, Tombstone dresses in a black suit: he's definitely a bad guy, but doesn't want to make war with Spider-Man if he doesn't have to.
