I saw this on Comicbook.com, and thought it was noteworthy after the X-Men '92 comic news. There is a petition going around to create new episodes of the 1994 Spider-Man cartoon that aired on Fox Kids. While a brand new Disney XD cartoon is very unlikely to happen, I think the idea of extending that specific cartoon's universe is still possible. So, would another comic book work, or maybe a video game could help to continue the 1994 Spider-Man story?

I imagine there would probably be a big audience for a comic continuation of the '94 cartoon that finally resolves the "finding Mary Jane plot," myself included, though with Greg Weisman working at Marvel I'm sure a lot of people are hoping for a continuation of Spectacular ;).

If DC can find success taking their classic TV shows and making them into comics (Batman '66 and Wonder Woman '77, here's looking at you), I don't see why Marvel couldn't take from that example and revive some of their older cartoons like they kinda have with X-Men '92 :).

Instead of, y'know, bringing them back for an event just to get slaughtered and desecrated for shock value :(.

Hey, well, I would really like to see new episodes of that series, because I was a real fan of it. It should start where the TAS ended, with Madame Webb and Spider-Man going to find the real Mary Jane Watson. According to what I heard, the producers said that they will have encountered MJ in the old England, where somehow, Carnage is also there creating the legend of Jack the Reaper.

There are someother cliffhangers that I would like to see solved:
+ The potential returns of the symbiotes, Venom and Carnage.
+ Somehow, Spider-Man frees both Red Skull, Captain America and Electro from the Vortex.
+ Possibly, Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man could found their reality's version of the Avengers.
+ The consequences of Main Spider-Man's Miles Warren getting a sample of Spider-Man's DNA. I suspect that could ended creating the classic version of Kaine.
+ The potential return of Norman Osborn/the Green Goblin and his escape from the dimensional limbo.
+ The whereabouts of Mysterio.

I like that idea too, a continuation in new episodes from the 1994 series or a comic book version like Batman '66.

Come to think of it, Marvel should go a step further with a comic book adaptation of the 1967-70 Spider-man cartoon as well. We could imagine a team-up of villains from season 1 (Mysterio, Dr. Octopus...) with some villains from the Bakshi season 2-3 (Master Technician aka Radiation Specialist, Infinita...).

Why not? Marvel already brought back X-Men '92 as a comic, and I know the show has a lot of fans still. The nostalgia would also be there for it, so I'm sure there's an audience. But to do as the petition is suggesting, to order an all new season for TV? Would never happen. But as a comic? I guess you never know. I'd be interested to see it, even if it only is a limited series, at least tie up the somewhat cliffhanger-y ending.

I think a Spider-Man '94 comic book would be fun. A cartoon? No thanks but a comic would work. Then again I'm one of the few who was fine with how the show ended. He's off to find Mary Jane and it's heavily implied and basically spelled out that he's getting his happy ending. That's a great ending. It's very much a "the adventure continues" type ending and it ends the show on a positive note. Just because we don't explicitly see Spider-Man saving MJ doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It just seems very clear that it's going to and Spider-Man will get to win in the end. And that was enough for me. But getting a sequel comic would actually be a fun treat.

Have you ever heard John Semper's plans for a sixth season that never happened? It's pretty unique, and I'd love to see him finally get to tell that story. Although based on the interview with MAA, he seems to have the same mindset as you, and seems to be pretty happy with the way it ended.

As I mentionned earlier, by also going a step further by a comic book adaptation of the 1967-70 Spider-man cartoon. I forgot to mention it could be a good opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversairy of the 1967-70 cartoon.

And the more I think of the 1994 cartoon comic book adaptation, the more I said "go for it". :D

And I am one such individual.

I would go out on a limb and say most people on this board want that, myself included. But due to the current situation at Marvel, there's a zero percent chance of it happening. I would say Spidey '94 is more likely to get some kind of continuation than TSSM is.

John Semper has already given us the resolution to that cliffhanger. I happen to have it in script form courtesy of John Semper himself.

I actually have the "lost episode" in script form, courtesy of John Semper himself. I would dare Marvel to animate it in the way we saw those characters from 1994-98.

Amphibia looks pretty deece so far. The premise is like the isekai anime genre, except the main protagonist isn't stuck in a typical fantasy RPG world that most isekai anime take place in.
