Source of the theme song[edit]

"In particular, the theme song of the show has become a popular standard. The lyrics were written by Academy Award winner Paul Francis Webster, while the music was composed by Bob Harris, Stu Phillips, and D. Kapross."

I always thought the theme was Charlie Mingus' Boogie Stop Shuffle (from the 1959 album Mingus Ah Um) aren't these the same song? Pete.Hurd 16:14, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

I took a listen to a clip of that song on amazon.com. It does sound very similar in parts, but it is not the same song. Perhaps the Spider-man theme is based on that song, but they aren't the same to my ears. Qutezuce 23:32, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

Spidey's theme song is a medley/swipe of the head of two classic jazz tunes popular in the 1960s:

Note that there's a very good reason why they're not entirely "the same song", and only the beginning of those tunes is similar to the Spidey theme: a typical jazz tune starts with a short melody (10 to 30 seconds) called the head (music), after which each soloist starts improvising things unrelated to the head's melody but rather its mode, or structure, or key, or something like that.

(If the head was like painting a sun of a beautiful shade of yellow, then the following solo could be like painting a kangaroo with the same beautiful shade of yellow: the sun and the kangaroo are unrelated, except for both flaunting the same beautiful shade of yellow, and it's enough of a connection for the jazz soloist -- that's the difference between jazz and rock.)

Anyhow, only the head is useful for pop song material, so pay attention only to the beginning of the tracks (and the end, when the theme of the head is played again). Of course, technically, it's enough to tweak a few notes to avoid the legal definition of plagiarism and be able to copyright a new tune. But the obvious sources of the theme should be mentionned one way or another in an encyclopedia. At the very least, the basic data should be provided, like:

The theme is very similar to the head of two popular 1960s boogies (Charlie Mingus's 1959 "Boogie Stop Shuffle", and Dave Brubeck's 1961 "Bru's Boogie Woogie") and probably based on them.

Objections, oppositions?

This is useful information, but do you have any outside sources to support it? Even if we all agree it's similar, it violates WP:NOR without 3rd-party sources. --HKMarks 17:21, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

The New Episode Guide[edit]

I'm working with this new episode guid formate, but, obviously, it's not done yet. Any help would be appreciated. I have yet to get the screen shots, but I did copy the code in such a way that there are just enough boxes for each episode and season. --MrRandomGuy 16:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I've corrected some of the episode titles and numbers and added a few screenshots for Season 1 (and the first ep. of Season 2). Count Ringworm 15:52, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

I've just changed the names of the second season, although your images aren't showing up, Count.--MrRandomGuy 18:17, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

yeah, they got zapped by Wikipedia. Count Ringworm 13:41, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Why's that? Anyway, I have some screen shots, although they'll take a while to upload. All the way up to "Horn of the Rhino, I think." --MrRandomGuy 05:50, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

apparently they didn't conform to wiki copyright guidelines. give it a try and see if you have any success. Count Ringworm 13:11, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

You can get the screenshots for this at the marvel Animation Age site, they're at the bottom of the episode pages. Gman124 01:13, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Stan & Lee[edit]

Which episodes were the Flies in? Because they, made for this series, were named 'Stan and Lee,' named after the Stan Lee who made the Spider-Man comics. It should be mentioned in the Trivia section. --71.109.37.168 15:02, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Not to worry; I've already added it. Oh, and the episodes were "The Spider and the Fly" and "Trick or Treachery." --71.109.37.168 07:31, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Roof Side Brawl: Importiant Update![edit]

[[Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg -->|thumb|right|Remeber this Pic?]] I uploaded this picture a while ago on here, and, while the movie took from this series' adaption of the battle (with the exception of the result of the Nullifier/Aunt May [It/Her being dropped, Spidy catching it/her with web]), the famed roof-side brawl was originally taken from the pages of Amazing Spider-Man 53 - Enter: Doctor Octopus, cover seen here. While I don't have a picture of the particular comic frame of Spider-Man squirting Doctor Octopus' glasses with webbing, but it should be added to the side of this pic to complete the trinity. Anybody have a copy of that? --208.127.64.100 06:51, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

Paul Soles, Paul Krigman, and Peg Dixon also provided the voices for characters in the Rankin-Bass production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. If you listen closely, you'll notice that the head elf sounds a lot like J. Jonah Jameson. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.21.204.108 (talk) 19:30, 12 January 2010 (UTC) I think you mean the Reindeer Coach sounds a lot like J.
