Overview

This release from Buena Vista Home Video compiles various episodes from the 1990s incarnation of the Spider-Man animated TV show. The episodes included are "Make a Wish, "Attack of the Octobot, "Enter the Green Goblin, and "Rocket Racer." They are all presented in full screen (standard) with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and are all clean with no noticeable flaws. The spoken language choices are English and Spanish, both of which are in Dolby Digital 2.0. Special features include the entire 1967 origin of the superhero episode (which has both noticeable sound and image faults). There is also an interview with co-creator Stan Lee entitled "Stan Lee's Soap Box" which runs 20 minutes and includes his recollections of the creation of the comic book character. Lee also provides one-minute introductions to each of the main episodes included on the disk. The "Rogues' Dossiers" section features 12 notorious villains with their bios and further onscreen comments from Lee. The disc also includes trailers for Spy Kids 2, Snow Dogs, Max Keeble's Big Move, Power Rangers: Time Force, Digimon: Birth of Guilmon, and Teamo Supremo. A tidy package which should please fans of the web-slinger.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
"Robbers, killers, beware!" Spider-Man swings into skyscraper-hopping, wall-scaling action in this 79-minute collection of four episodes from the 1995 animated series. In Make a Wish, Spider-Man relates to a spidey-eyed young girl how he became the original web-slinging wonder. She inspires him to rededicate himself to fighting crime and comes to his rescue in Attack of the Octobot. One of Spider-Man's most fiendish adversaries makes his debut in Enter the Green Goblin (and he actually does look a little like Willem Dafoe). Spider-Man gets some unexpected help against jet-pack-wearing thieves from a student with a criminal past in Rocket Racer. Good as these are, it's the bonus vintage 1967 episode, The Origin of Spider-Man, that really makes this collection soar, at least for those of us who fondly recall its classic theme ("Spider-Man, Spider-Man/Does whatever a spider can"). The DVD edition really swings with an interview segment and episode introductions from "Spidey" creator Stan Lee, as well as a Villains Gallery. Fans of this uniquely "Everyman" superhero will be caught in this collection's web.
