If you grew up with the OG “The Electric Company” whose cast included EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner Rita Moreno and future Oscar-winner/master narrator Morgan Freeman. One of my favorite segments they’d bust out on the regular was “Spidey Super Stories,” a collaborative effort between Marvel Comics, “The Electric Company” and the Children’s Television Workshop, teaching kids how to read with the help of a comic book hero!
What makes this particular series different is there are no mentions ever made of Spidey’s origin nor does he ever jump out of costume (in the SSS comic book, he does) – as a matter of fact, Spidey only talks with the use of comic bubbles!
In honor of all the Spider-Man casting talk happening as of late, I give you the FIRST episode of “Spidey Super Stories,” Spidey Meets the Spoiler
God, I hate spoilers!
What about you? What was YOUR fave of the “Spidey Super Stories”? Can be from the comic book OR the show!
