Where Are You Coming From, Spider-Man?

And I Am Not Lying, For Real collected Ten Spider-Man Appearances That Will Never Hit Hollywood. I went through a BIG Spider-Man phase as a kid, and am fascinated with the way the character has permeated cultures other than mine.

But I'm even more fascinated by the ability to now see TV clips I barely remember from that early Spider-Man phase, such as The Electric Company clip above...

And this crucial piece of ephemera from my childhood: the very first appearance of Spidey on The Electric Company, as narrated by Morgan Freeman. These were officially called Spidey Super Stories. Damn, was I ever into this stuff. [I guess I still am.]
