The Original Spiderman

Tobey MacGuire was not the first Spiderman... Nicholas Hammond carried the title for two seasons on CBS in the 70’s.

But why did his webs look like white ropes that wrapped around objects?

On the plus side, the music was 1970’s disco cool... and the effects were decent considering CGI had not yet been developed.

But a Spidermobile? What happened to web swinging? Why drive through traffic?

It is also great to see the wonderful Chip Fields in these clips:
