"The Spectacular Spider-Man" is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, and this is one sharp transfer. Other than some hard mosquito noise, everything else about the picture quality is excellent. Colors are bold and vibrant without smearing, and the animation flows smoothly. Detail is pretty spiffy, too. Pretty good stuff, overall.
English closed captions from your TV are available, plus French subtitles on the disc.
Don't get your hopes up here. There's a Music Video for the show's theme song performed by The Tender Box (in anamorphic widescreen), plus a Trailer for this feature (along with plenty of other previews).
Yep, we have another Spidey cartoon series on our hands. "Attack Of The Lizard" seems to be just the first three episodes of the "Spectacular Spider-Man" series strung together, and it's audience is certainly aimed at the kiddies (got to keep the franchise fresh in their minds until the inevitable fourth theatrical installment hits). Still, I'm sure fans of Marvel lore will enjoy it too. As far as a DVD, everything looks and sounds good, but the extras are non-existent. Still, if you have die-hard Spidey fans in your household, this is a harmless purchase.
