Disney digitally remastering classic Spidey toons!
The following comes from AnimationArtist.Com:
In an ambitious restoration project, Buena Vista International Television (BVI-TV), a division of The Walt Disney Company, will renovate the first-ever 1967 Spider-Man animated series, in which the web-slinging Marvel superhero was first seen on television.
In the restoration process, the rarely-seen Marvel ‘Classic Spider-Man’ 52 x half hour series will be remastered to a high definition format from the original 35mm film negatives. The episodes’ original English soundtrack, including the memorable title song, will be renovated and a new music & effects track added.
‘Classic Spider-Man’ and other Spider-man animated series from the ‘90s, ‘80s and ‘70s are part of the Fox Kids Europe (FKE) and BVS portfolios (formerly known as Saban), of which BVI-TV services the distribution. The portfolios comprise of more than 6,300 episodes of children’s programming and have strong international appeal, with more than 1,500 episodes produced in Europe.
