Spider-Man : The Animated Series

The longest running of all the Spider-Man cartoons, which aired between November 1994 and January 1998, lasting five seasons and sixty five episodes. Like X-Men: The Animated Series, made around the same time, it echoed the original Marvel universe it hailed from in most aspects. In fact the X-Men from that incarnation turned up, voiced by the same actors, effectively making this the first time two Marvel cartoons confirmed a tie-in continuity. Check out this site or this one devoted to this version of Spidey.
