    Got this news from www.cnl.com (online retailer that was the first to break the news of Superbit deluxe)
    Due on October 29th, is a second Spider-Man: The Animated Series DVD entitled "Return Of The Green Goblin". It's the same price as the other dvd. I'd guess the episodes included would be the 8th through the 11th in season four.

    Someone beat you on that scoop by a month; sorry. Didn't exactly generate a lot of excitement last time.
    Info is still very thin on this release: no episode listings, no box art, no details other than the release date and the $19.99 SRP. :p)
    I'm keeping an eye out, though.

    Same here, although I would have preferred that they should release these in season box sets.

    Oscar, I'm sure Disney won't experiment with seasonal box sets for animated shows like Spider-Man until they see how Felicity, Once & Again, and Sports Night do for them. And, while they wait, they can check out the continued success of Transformers.

    What else is there? He-Man is coming that way, in theory, but noone even knows from WHO yet. There's the stuff we've seen dribbled out for Scooby-Doo and Batman: TAS, but nowhere near complete.

    There's not a lot of hard data on the success of season sets for older kid cartoons yet, so the mouse is taking it cautiously. They could be pioneers here, but they will leave it instead the in the hands of Rhino, which ironically is owned by Warner...

    I guess your right about that, then again Disney pioneered many things in the past, yet this is a different ballgame.
    Tron was way ahead of its time when it came out in 1982 and funny enough predicted a lot of futuristic gadgets that are now common place.

    According to some DVD Distributors...

    Debuting in 1994, this SPIDER-MAN animated series introduced a whole new generation of fans to Stan Lee's web slinger. The story of Spider-Man's origins is well known to fans: Peter Parker, a shy young budding scientist, obtains his unique abilities when an irradiated spider bites him. However, Spidey had been successful at hiding his true identity from his enemies until these episodes, when his archenemy, The Green Goblin, discovers his origins. Later, Spidey finds himself in more hot water when he has his first run-in with The Hobgoblin.

    Features:

    * Full Frame
    * English & Spanish Stereo tracks
    * Production Interview with Stan Lee
    * Classic 1967 Episode
    * The Rogue's Challenge Game
    * Scene Access
    * Interactive Menus

    As mentioned above, 10/29 and $19.99 retail.

    I was able to enjoy this today, as someone broke street date on it. I won't say who, of course, but I paid $14.44 for it (that ought to narrow it down quite a bit).
    It's very comparable to the previous release. For anyone who wants straight-from-the box specs on this (Anthony is right on the money, with very minor changes), check the data I listed here .
    The only thing that I shoud mention about that release info is that I showed "The Spot" as "#312". It is production number three-hundred-and-ten. But it is properly shown as the 12th episode of season 3. Hence my decision to list it at TVShowsOnDVD as "#312"; it is immediately followed by the other three shows on this disc. They form an arc together. So don't bust my chops for the "mistake", okay? [​IMG]
