There's no denying Saturday morning cartoons were the absolute best growing up. After a week of learning and social activities at school, we started the weekends with some friendly faces on television.
Before Super Friends soared onto television, another superhero dominated the Saturday morning lineup. For three seasons beginning in 1967, Spider-Man entertained kids with its titular web-swinger and a host of eccentric villains.
The cartoon is probably best remembered for its signature theme song. ("Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can…") But over the last few years, the show has taken on a life of its own on the internet.
Thanks to the show's simplistic animation and low budget, humorous screencaps from the series have been popping up for some time. Some have even gone on to become viral memes.
Don't get us wrong, Spider-Man was an awesome show to watch as a kid. But looking back, it's funny to see the show in a different context.
