Welcome to the Spider-Man(1981) cartoon guide!  This early 80s animated series was the second Spider-Man cartoon produced but the third to air. The series'character designs and some of the same voices (not Spider-Man himself) were used in the more famous Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends animated series. Designed to follow on from the 1967 Spider-Man show in syndication, and featuring the same cast of regular characters, the show chronicles the adventures of Peter Parker as Spider-Man during his college years. His responsibility to be Spider-man causes problems with his work, his studies, and his romantic involvement with Betty Brant. Other characters included Peter's Aunt May and J. Jonah Jameson-editor of the Daily Bugle. Spidey faced off against some of his classic foes, including the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and the Chameleon.
