12-SEP-2011 Thirty years ago today, SPIDER-MAN & HIS AMAZING FRIENDS debuted on NBC’s Saturday morning cartoons.
If you’ve browsed the galleries here at all, you can tell what a fan I was of that cartoon since it was the reason I made my FIRESTAR costume in 2008.
- * A look back at the construction of the suit.
- * Test shots of the suit with wig.
- * Accessories
- * Finally done with contacts and upgraded mask from Ravenwood Masks.
I’m happy to see that the series is available on DVD. You can reconnect with great episodes that take our heroes into a “Tron-like” story of a video game villain or meet other heroes like Professor Xavier and his diverse mutant team, the X-Men! Spider-Man toils with his emotions because he’s not a mutant but a side effect of that infamous radioactive spider while his best friends Firestar and Iceman do fit in with the X-Men. He’s an outcast among outcasts. He encounters Shocker, Doc Ock, Mysterio, and the Scorpion.
I know can’t be the only one that pretended moving a statue on my shelf would spin a wall around into a secret room of high tech controls, computers and loads of bleeping terminals. My cousin Joey and I would fly around his background as Spider-Man and Firestar (when we weren’t Superfriends).
Do you love that painting I used in the banner? It’s the work of J.K. Woodward, best known for all of his years on IDW’s FALLEN ANGEL; he’s involved in a collaborative new graphic novel called EVERLAST by Chad Michael Murray.

Loved that show! I was 11 when it premiered. Introduced me to a number of Marvel characters, especially in the 7 Little Superheroes episode. The animation in the individual origin episodes was fantastic.
