Monster of the Day #1643

So a rather fussy-looking Lord of the Undead also appeared in an episode of the short-lived Spider-Woman show. I guess Jessica gets turned into a werewolf? I haven’t seen this one yet, but we’ll be watching at our annual Halloween Movie Night a week from Friday, so I’ll see then, I guess.

This one is also on Dailymotion.

    It would have been cooler if she had become a werewolf spider.

  • So. No Firestar. And the extraneous hot chick is covered in fur.

    Meh. Meh I say!

    We at the Waters household didn’t watch a lot of Spider-woman (not that there was a lot to watch, mind). There was an episode with Spider-man in it, and not only did they have the audacity of portraying him as a complete jerk, they also didn’t get the voice right. Which in hindsight is hilarious, as the actor playing Spider-man really was Spider-

    I mean, was Paul Soles, the original actor to play Spider-man.

    Like if William Campbell played Dracula which sounds like it would have been a good idea.

  • Here’s another thought, and probably a petty one: Why does Spider-Woman have brown fur as a werewolf? She naturally has black hair. Shouldn’t her fur be black too?

  • You mean a were-wolf spider, i.e. a were-spider (of the family Lycosidae), right?

    Oh, it gets “better,” she’s actually struck by a werewolf AND either a vampire or a Frankenstein’s Monster, so she’s becoming BOTH. And by struck I mean energy beams — no biting or clawing or anything cool.

    As much as I hate to admit it, because I LOVED the horror-vibe the Spider-Woman COMIC briefly had, the cartoon was just terrible from start to finish. They dumped on Spider-Man (as Cullen Waters points out), and it just wasn’t very good.

    There are space mummies (or maybe just one) in another episode, if I remember.

    One of the Superfriends (the shorter ones, less than thirty minutes) had the “Voodoo Vampire” who looked a LOT like classic Storm/Ororo Munroe of the X-Men (except she too shot energy beams, from her fangs).

    Can only be killed with a silver vacuum cleaner attachment.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Why is there a line going from his ear to his nose? Is that supposed to be a scar, or did The Frankenstein draw on his face with a sharpie when he was asleep?

    Were-spider? There spider!

  • Ericb

    If William Daniels ever played Dracula …

  • I liked this show a lot as a kid (even had the tie-in Underoos), but damn is it nearly unwatchable as an adult. Her constant excuse-making to er boyfriend, annoying kid, villains that can’t actually make contact with their victims. It’s pretty much everything wrong with 70s/80s superhero cartoons, all rolled up in a single inconvenient package.

    With his New England accent I would hope.

    It feels great to read something funny after having some goofy Stalinist (no, seriously) tell me that ‘Tolkien helped create the neo-Nazi right’ (no, seriously).

    I have GOT to learn to stay out of net forums. Er, save for here, of course.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Even as a kid I wondered about that one.

    Maybe he was supposed have a monocle and they forgot to draw it in???

  • A recording of him doing both title roles in “The Devil and Daniel Webster” would be amazing!

    E-yeah…we are less insane…believe it or not.

    This place is an island of sanity in comparison to other places I visit online on some days.

    He was once perfectly cast as John Quincy Adams in an old PBS miniseries on the Adams family.

  • Amen to that!
