Well true believers, we’ve entered the home stretch for Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The third season consisted of eight new episodes. Spidey, Iceman and Firestar are all back, but there is a new presence in these episodes as well. None other than Stan Lee himself. Beginning with season two of the show, Stan Lee began providing intros and narration to the episodes. The season one episodes were even changed to add Lee and keep everything consistent. However, the Stan Lee narrations no longer exist on the masters of the first two seasons, but season three survives. So, with a few bits of narration from Stan the Man, we start this seasons with Spider-Man Unmasked. Continue reading Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends S:03 E:01

Episode Title: A Firestar is Born

It seems like just two weeks ago we started season two. Actually, it was only two weeks ago. Remember, this season only added three episodes to the rotation for Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. Since we’ve already covered the origin stories of both Spidey and Iceman, that just leaves one more to go. This one, though, doesn’t have any roots on the comic book page. Since Firestar was a character original to this series, this origin was new territory. Here we go with A Firestar is Born. Continue reading Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends S:02 E:03

Episode Title: The Origin of the Iceman

Well true-believers, we’ve arrived at the start of season two of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. Now, when it comes to Saturday morning cartoons, it was not uncommon for a relatively small number of episodes to be made of a show which were then rerun for many years. In the case of the Spider Friends, only three episodes were added to the mix for season two. Each of these episodes focused a bit on the origin stories of our three heroes. We begin with the birth of one “cool” mutant in The Origin of The Iceman. Continue reading Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends S:02 E:01
