[show]SPOILER: Ghost Rider was scheduled to appear on "Spider-Man" some time in the fifth season of the show. In the story, written by John Semper, it would have been revealed that Mysterio was alive after his off-screen demise in season four's episode "The Haunting of Mary Jane Watson", and he would have used a Time Dialation Accelerator device to commit a series of robberies. Mysterio would have been discovered by Baron Mordo, who wanted Mysterio to use the Time Dialation device to free his master, Dormammu, from another dimension. Spider-Man would have teamed-up with Ghost Rider to stop their plans from bringing Dormammu out of his dimension, though it is not known what the fate is of the Time Dialation Accelerator or how there was a new one since the previous was destroyed on-screen in season three's "Turning Point" episode when the Green Goblin is banished to limbo. However, Marvel was trying to get a "Ghost Rider" animated series done on the UPN network at the time and the Fox Kids network did not want to give exposure to a character who would have appeared on a rival network. According to story editor John Semper, the Ghost Rider episode for "Spider-Man" was actually written but never used, and the "Ghost Rider" series for UPN ultimately was rejected. Ghost Rider did, however, appear as a guest star on the UPN animated series "The Incredible Hulk".
- The backgrounds seen during a "Spider Sense" are a nod to the backgrounds used during the Ralph Bakshi era of the 1960s Spider-Man (1967) cartoon.
