Spider-Man used to appear on the PBS educational program The Electric Company. Do you remember this? His segments were introduced by the Spider-Man theme song — not the classic “does whatever a spider can” one but an original composition. I don’t think they spent a lot of time on it, though. Here, for example, are the lyrics: “Spider-Man, where are you coming from? Spider-Man, nobody knows who you are!” Those are the lyrics in full. For the kid version of me, this was the “Spider-Man theme song.”

Pity the children of the 70s, is what I am saying.

P. S. Yes, indeed, that is Morgan Freeman.
