Trivia: Spider-Man (1967)
  • Banned Episode: The episode of the first season titled The One-Eyed Idol/Fifth Avenue Phantom is occasionally left out of circulation as it contains a lot of content that would be considered racist and sexist these days.
  • Dawson Casting: Resulted in some Vocal Dissonance for Spidey.
  • Fake American: The series' voice work was done in Canada.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Many voice actors from this series — including Paul Kligman (J. Jonah Jameson), Paul Soles (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), and Ed McNamara, just to name a few — were Marvel animation mainstays by this point, having already done work on the earlier series The Marvel Super Heroes and The Fantastic Four (1967).
    • Paul Kligman can also be recognized as the voice of Donner (Rudolph's dad) and the mean reindeer coach in the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer TV special.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Zig-Zagged: This show did not receive its own DVD until 2004. When the DVD came out, it actually contained all the episodes (a rarity for cartoons in Disney's library). However, this set went out of print after a few years. Later, the cartoon became available for digital streaming.
  • No Budget: Like other Marvel adaptations of the time, the series was produced on the cheap, and went steadily down in budget as time went on (the animation team even had to flee their creditors while producing the third season). Most fans, though, argue this adds to the charm of the show.
  • Ralph Bakshi: Lead animator during the second season.
  • Talking to Themself: A lot of actors from this series voiced more than one character, including Peg Dixon, who voiced literally every single female character in the series.
