Beginning in November of 1994, John Semper and crew launched the most accurate portrayal of Peter Parker to be animated to date. Where previous animated incarnations focused on action, this version provided the same three dimensional Peter Parker found in the comics.

Complete with the familiar supporting cast, a hapless lovelife, doting Aunt May, and grumpy J. Jonah Jameson, the show places Peter during his college years at ESU. In the four seasons and 65 episodes, Spidey faced almost all of the major Spidey villains, old and new (except for the conspicuous absence of the Sandman). Even the comic's second stringers like Rocket Racer, Madam Web, and the Prowler have appeared in the show!

The series was highly successful, and motivated a new wave of toys and other Spider-Man merchandise. It also recently spawned a loosely-related follow-up series, Spider-Man Unlimited (TV), which did not inherit the same level of success.
