Question: Wasn't Spider-Man on Sesame Street during the 1970s? I remember that this Spider-Man had no voice and only talked in words that were shown on the TV screen. Kevin S.
Televisionary: It sounds like you're thinking of the most excellent Electric Company, Kevin the Children's Television Workshop show intended to serve kids who'd outgrown Sesame Street. Produced for five seasons and aired during the '70s and early '80s, the show included a live-action segment called "The Adventures of Spidey," which utilized the webslinger's popularity to sneak some learning into kids' heads. (I know because, despite what my wife says, I was one of them.)
