1981-Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends

This one is for Max.
This was an NBC Saturday morning cartoon and was the second animated series about the webhead. Originally supposed to be Spider-Man, Iceman, and Human Torch, but legal issues with the Human Torch character prevented them from using him in the show. So producers invented a new character, Firestar. I don't know how the team could afford Batcave-level equipment on a college student's budget. Stan Lee narrated later episodes.
Twenty-four episodes were produced and endlessly rerun on Saturday mornings through 1986.
