Spider-Man is a comic book character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Marvel Comics in 1962. Spider-Man is actually the superhero identity of the seemingly ordinary photographer Peter Parker. He received a bite from a radioactive spider, transforming him into an amazing superhero with web-spinning abilities and "Spidey-sense." The comic book later spawned a live-action television series, multiple animated series, and most recently, a successful film franchise.

In December 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment (the parent company of Marvel Comics), placing the Spider-Man character under the same ownership as the Muppets and Bear in the Big Blue House characters.

Appearances

  • The Marvel comic Spidey Super Stories tied in with The Electric Company and Spider-Man's appearances on the show. Issue #31, "Star Jaws," featured a Star Wars parody in which Sam the Robot made a special appearance, billed as "Sam, the Sesame Street Robot." Filling the roles of both R2-D2 and C-3PO, Sam sought Spider-Man's assistance in an intergalactic war.
  • Spider-Man guest starred in the Muppet Babies episode "Comic Capers," produced by Marvel Productions (whose logo, seen at the end of each Muppet Babies episode, also featured a CGI Spider-Man). Baby Rowlf and Baby Skeeter entered the Spider-Man newspaper comic, and attempted to foil bank robbers. They only succeeded in irritating Stan Lee, in a live-action cameo, who pointed out there was only one Spider-Man. The closing gag featured Baby Animal and Baby Gonzo disguised as Spider-Man, with Animal on top wearing the mask, until they collide with a building and Gonzo falls from the bottom of the costume.
