    Krantz Films - "Spider-Man" Hand Painted Production Cel on Production Background Original Art (1970). Eight years before Tobey Maguire was born, the animated Spider-Man swung upon America's television screens. The program ran from 1967 through 1970 on ABC, and spun its web on a generation of viewers. In the original comic book stories, Spider-Man, aka teen-ager Peter Parker, was beset by self-doubts and personal problems. The animated Spider-Man was a straightforward action superhero who was too busy performing weird stunts like fashioning a boat and motor out of spider webs to worry or agonize. This frame of Spiderman in mid-swing over a New York City building will certainly thrill nostalgic adults who grew up watching Spider-Man on Saturday mornings: "Wherever there's a hang-up/You'll find the Spider-Man!" The cel measures 10.5" x 12.5" and is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "No matter how many versions of Spider-Man appear on the big or little screen, no matter how spectacular some of those versions may be, for those of us who were 'there' at the time, the Krantz animated cartoons -- however limited the animation -- have been permanently burned into our memories as the true original adventures of the wall-crawler!"
