Sometimes Tuesdays are like that.

Ah, apparently I had the wrong Spider-Man TV show theme song in mind when writing my response in the last post. What Chuck V. was referencing was the version of Spider-Man on the educational television program Electric Company:

As such, thusly amend my response to “Spider-Man came from the Children’s Television Workshop Labs, a hideous mutation that could never remove his mask nor speak in more than nonsense sounds.”

Anyway, this is a reminder to give me your comic industry predictions for 2021, shop small stores like mine when you can if you’re still buying for the holiday season, and most importantly: be safe out there.

Sorry, not much of a post today, but I had bit of a day Tuesday and I’m not up a real post. But I’d like everyone to enjoy their holiday best they can (where applicable) and we’ll get together again next week to see out this year.

    Merry Christmas, Mike! Your blog was an ongoing highlight through tough times I had earlier this year. May your holidays give you a joyful pause and renewed hopes for a better 2021.

    I watched ELECTRIC COMPANY as a youth, but I cannot recall ever seeing any episodes with Spider-Man. Looking now at the dates, I assume that I aged out just a little too soon for this.

    Looking at the Wikipedia entry on this, I see that several of the villains were played by Skip Hinnant. Here’s today’s trivial trivia for you: He was also the voice of Fritz the Cat. Given that Ralph Bakshi worked on the 1960s Spider-Man TV series, there was potential here for a cross-over…

    By the way: Can anyone say whether the SPIDEY SUPER-STORIES comic book ever teamed Jennifer of the Jungle with Lorna the Jungle Girl or Shanna the She-Devil? I can imagine Roy Thomas insisting on this.

    Remember the episode where Spider-Man fought Mr. Measles? At the end Spidey get the measles and has those big black spots all over his costume…that uses to terrify me when I was a kid.

    I second what Michael said. Happy Christmas, Mike!
