SPIDER-MAN, ICEMAN, & FIRESTAR: THE SPIDER-FRIENDS! The animated television series Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends originally aired on
the NBC network Saturday mornings beginning in 1981. Though originally proposed as a show similar to the Spider-Man comic books, the network felt that Spidey needed some additional elements to make him accessible
to a wider audience. Iceman (from Marvel Comics' X-MEN) and an original character, Firestar, were added as well as <shudder> a cute little dog for comic
relief. Despite the network's intervention, the creators pulled off a wonderfully charming show that is fondly remembered by children of the 1980s as a classic.

THE 1981 SOLO SPIDER-MAN CARTOON
The amazing Jon Talpur has concocted a wonderful
site based on the 1981 solo Spider-Man
cartoon. The solo cartoon shared many
of the same designers and creators as
Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends but the show is not as well known since it was not shown on a national TV network. Be sure to
check it out at www,spider-friends.com/SOLO1981/!
