Spider-Man Cartoon Intro and Theme Song

Do you remember when Spider-Man had a cartoon and a cool theme song? This was back in the ’60s, so we’ll forgive you if you don’t. Here’s a refresher:

Still not ringing a bell? It’s okay. The new guy knows it in case you forgot!

Sing along! Everybody!

Spider-Man Theme by Bob Harris with Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster

Spider-Man, Spider-Man,
Does whatever a spider can.
Spins a web, any size.
Catches thieves just like flies.
Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man!

Is he strong? Listen, bud.
He’s got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead.
Hey there! There goes the Spider-Man!

In the chill of night,
At the scene of the crime,
Like a streak of light,
He arrives just in time.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man,
Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
Wealth and fame? He’s ignored.
Action is his reward!
To him, life is a great big bang-up.
Wherever there’s a hang-up,
You’ll find the Spider-Man!
