Grown up man playing with 3 kids

Theme song is good (my child loved it) animation is only average, citizens animation is horrible, main characters are fine. I could expect a little more effort and budged for a spiderman franchise. My worst complaint is about Iron-man and kids relationship. 3 kids meet a grown up men in an apartment without their parents know anything about this adult (swimming pool, dinner, games) Come on, someone in Disney doesn't think it is not a correct education message to kids? Apart of that serie is ok, my child like a lot it, not expected a lot of educational values here, and villains are properly bad people and want to hurt other people.

Doc Oct said “what the hell.” I was really shocked that a kids show would say that.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (14 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This series aimed at preschoolers is cute, action-packed, and a little weird. Working from the multiverse concept set forth in the animated films starring Miles Morales, Marvel's Spidey and His Amazing Friends posits that three versions of Spider-Men work together in the same timeline; also, they're little kids. Parents may scoff at the unexplained premise, but young viewers won't care as long as they get to see their favorite Marvel characters in a relatively age-appropriate vehicle. The messages aren't too bad, either (beyond the overarching issue of pushing Marvel characters to the youngest possible audience) -- Black Panther praises the Spideys for being a great team, and calls out the need for patience. Problem solving skills are promoted, and the team is always working toward the greater good, just like their grown-up counterparts.
