We’ve done BatmanHulkX-Men, and now it’s time to web-sling back to the ‘90s to revisit an animated outing for Spider-Man.

This time, Morgan pens a podcast love letter to his childhood and adoration for the 1994 animated version of Peter Parker and his pals.

We look at the potentially murky history behind the epic theme tune creators, the bizarre censorship rules to protect children, and its utterly bonkers multiverse ending.

Spider-Man The Animated Series ran on the Fox Kids Network from 1994 to 1998, with a total of five seasons and sixty-five episodes.

Starring Morgan’s hero Christopher Daniel Barnes as Peter Parker, and Two Geeks favourite Ed Asner as J Jonah Jameson, the series was massively popular and helped cement Spider-Man as a hugely popular superhero years before Tobey Maguire brought it to the big screen.
