SPIDER-MAN RE-ANIMATE Gives a New Take on the Classic Cartoon

SPIDER-MAN RE-ANIMATE Gives a New Take on the Classic Cartoon

With the NYCC announcement that 2017 will see a brand new Spider-Man animated series, it’s easy to get nostalgic about the classic 1967 cartoon that started it all. From the awesome theme song to psychedelic backgrounds, this show set the standard for future Spidey series to come (except for the 15-minute web-swinging montages. Those were a little excessive. And excessive is an understatement).

Thanks to Vimeo user Rob Doucet, Spider-Fans can now look at the episode “Vulture’s Prey” from that classic series through a fresh set of eyes.

 

Spider-Man Re-Animate is a short originally presented at the “Nocturne at Night” arts festival in Canada. Animators throughout Nova Scotia took the episode and recreated it in their own style. Then it was edited all together with some amazing and hilarious results.

The diversity in the animation styles within the piece is nothing short of impressive. You have Pixar influences,

This 12-minute video is an exercise in how people can be given the same source material and interpret it in totally different ways. To take those results and create a great collaboration like this is astounding.

So what do you think? Does this add or take away from the original version? What other classics would you like to see get the “re-aminate” treatment? Should Spider-Man: Homecoming  be this insane? Let me know on Twitter or web-swing on down into the comments below.
