IT'S 'THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN' TO THE RESCUE

Kids' WB! on The CW Announces Official Title for Marvel Super Hero's Animated Series from Culver Entertainment

BURBANK, CA (JUNE 18, 2007) - "The Spectacular Spider-Man" is the official title of the super hero's new animated series coming to the Kids' WB! on The CW, it was announced today by Kids' WB! Senior Vice President and General Manager Betsy McGowen.

"The use of the 'Spectacular' title is an homage to Marvel's wildly popular series of Spider-Man comics, and is very reflective of the enthusiasm and high regard we have for the production," McGowen said.
