    Radioactivity and all uses of the word were removed and replaced on this show with a science called neogenics, including the spider that bites Peter to give him his powers. Ironically, though, Joe Perry's theme music uses the lyric "radioactive spider blood."

    According to an on-line interview with John Semper, the reason that the Hobgoblin was added to the show in Season One before the Green Goblin was that plans for the character were being done before he arrived by writers and crew members that were no longer involved. By that time, the Hobgoblin had been made into an action figure for the animated series that was going to be released, so Semper admitted they had to let him stay on the series.

    A sixth season was planned for "Spider-Man" which would have had Spider-Man find the real Mary Jane Watson from limbo with the help of Madame Web. Story editor John Semper said in an online interview that it purposefully left unresolved to see Spider-Man find the real Mary Jane because the crew thought they were going to get another season or two of "Spider-Man". However, Margaret Loesch, who was the president of Fox Kids network at that time, hated one of the show's executive producers, Avi Arad, due to the fights they'd usually have over the show and she wanted to put Arad out of business. When the sixty-five episode contract for "Spider-Man" was up, Loesch decided to cancel the show and had permanently shut down Marvel Films Animation, the company that provided the animation for Spider-Man. Loesch and the Fox Kids network had a better relationship with Saban Entertainment, who wanted to do animation for other series for Fox Kids, including ones for Marvel. Instead of continuing "Spider-Man", the Fox Kids network decided to go with a new, unofficial sequel series "Spider-Man Unlimited" with animation done by Saban to garner ratings that were as big, if not bigger, than "Spider-Man". The plan backfired, as fans disliked the new series because it deviated too much from the comics by sticking Spider-Man on a Counter-Earth. The ratings were also much lower than the network had expected, because "Pokemon" aired against "Spider-Man Unlimited" and clobbered it in the ratings. "Spider-Man Unlimited" was quickly pulled from the Fox Kids network after airing only its first three episodes of the thirteen they had made.
