Ranking Every Spider-Man Cartoon From Worst To Best

8. Spider-Man: The New Animated Series (2003)

Back in the early 2000s, MTV decided to take on our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man with a CGI adaptation that only lasted a single season consisting of 13 episodes. While the series wasn't the greatest, it did have some good elements going for it.

The animation was somewhat innovative for the time, but it appeared unfinished, which didn't exactly work. Even with the animation being an issue, the voice acting was well done with Neil Patrick Harris providing the voice of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Lisa Loeb as Mary Jane, and Ian Ziering as Harry Osborne.

The series took place in the same universe as the Sam Raimi live-action films starring Tobey Maguire. This gave fans a little something more to enjoy while they waited for Spider-Man 2 to hit theatres.

The series introduced a number of interesting villains and attempted to stay close to the Spider-Man universe created by Raimi, which is why many fans fondly remember the series. It had some good episodes and is still worth a watch - especially as a binge between the first and second Spider-Man films.
