Spidey and his Amazing Friends review by Bobby Blakey
Throughout the years there have been so many iterations of Spider-Man in both live action and animation. The latest is Spider and his Amazing Friends featuring the voice talents of Benjamin Valic as Peter Parker; Lily Sanfelippo as Gwen Stacy; Jakari Fraser as Miles Morales; Dee Bradley Baker as TRACE-E; JP Karliak as Green Goblin; Melanie Minichino as Aunt May; Justin Shenkarow as Rhino; Kelly Ohanian as Doc Ock; Sandra Saad as Ms. Marvel; Tru Valentino as Black Panther.
"Marvel's Spidey and his Amazing Friends" follows the adventures of Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales as they team up with Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Black Panther to defeat foes like Rhino, Doc Ock and Green Goblin and learn that teamwork is the best way to save the day. Geared towards preschoolers and their families, the Spidey Team models the importance of helping others and highlights themes of friendship, cooperation and problem-solving.
I love all things animation especially those with superheroes. This is a fun series geared more towards the younger kids filled with fun, action and always a good moral lesson. The animation is good taking on what you see a lot of these days in this age group of shows while still bringing the fun of Spidey and the Marvel universe to life. There is a little for everyone with Parker, Gwen and Miles all on the team to create their own tales of friendship and adventure.
Of course as an adult it doesn’t pack the punch I want, but this series isn’t for me. It is for the kids and they will no doubt love it. Even parents that might get stuck watching it are going to have a good time getting to at least join in on some superhero action as opposed to singing whatever new song about friends they are typically forced to endure.
