Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Title Cards

I was reminded the other day when I watched the Aquaman's Outrageous Adventure episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, how much I love really good title cards. They are sort of a lost art these days, although there are a few shows recently that have used them, Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes for instance.

Here are all the title cards for the 1981 series, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. Most of them are show off the villains and guest heroes in a creative way with bold colours and fancy lettering. The lettering gets a little less creative for the second and third seasons, but they still look pretty cool to me.

I have never really given title cards that much attention, but they are kind of cool.

I love how The Fantastic Mr. Frump title card shows off the real star of the episode. Too bad Doom couldn't get the powers from the very beginning of the episode and give the Spider-Friends a 22 minute run for their money instead of the few at the end but being that this was such a comedic show, of course they went with the plot that they did.

7 little Superheroes is also a great card for the probably the show's most infamous episode.
