CLASSIC! This is the episode that hooked me on this show (and on
comic books). To this day, I feel that the dialogue is as sharp and
witty as the day it first aired. It's got everything a Saturday morning
cartoon needs...AND NOTHING TOPS that superhero costume party for sheer
comic book fans thrills! Without a doubt, this is one of the best
episodes. I was a little disappointed to find out the episode was
so similar to the Green Goblin episode in the other 1981 Spider-Man (solo)
cartoon, but still a GREAT first impression.
excellent first adventure for the Spider-Friends. The dialogue is
wonderfully astute and witty throughout the episode and this playful banter
really defines the characters and underlines the shows sense of fun. The
action keeps a great pace and the costume party proves to be a fantastic
backdrop to the beginning of the story; what a terrific idea to present
all those super-heroes, in the first ever episode!
my favorite but one of the best. No pulling any punches, they put
a lot of the best stuff in the first episode. First by using Spidey's
most popular villain and then with all the cameos of Marvel heroes (even
if they were just college kids in costume). Definitely some of the funniest
dialogue written for the show. It was and still is a very enjoyable
episode. It is a big improvement over the solo Green Goblin story
although I too was disappointed that much of the story was adapted.
This was almost too good of a start because of the high standard this episode
sets for the other shows to follow. I do feel a few episodes were
able to top this one but not many.
