Here we have the animation team that was brought together to work on Spiderman and His Amazing Friends. The work flow of an animated series in the 80s was countless hours of work. Animating one cell at a time by hand took the animators months to finish an episode. To turn out a show in time I'm sure the artists spent more time at the coffee shop than at the refrigerator water filters or refrigerator cooler. I'm sure the animators in the 80s would have appreciated the tools, computers and lighting filters that we have today to turn out a cartoon in a few days. Even so, there is still a certain appeal to the classic style of animation. For us, we get to sit back, grab a drink from the refrigerator, and watch what an amazing job these animators did.
