Spider-Man Music

 

The sound files on this page are reconstructed music cues from the Spider-Man TV series made in the late sixties.  I patched them together myself (sometimes noticeably, sometimes not).  Some of these cues are assembled from many different episodes, edited to avoid the show’s dialogue.  NOTE this is the Ray Ellis music, not the public domain KPM library music that began to show up in the second season.

There are more to come when I get around to it, and I think I can improve a few of these.

    Brilliant! Been looking for these for ages! Are these available to download?

    For some reason, I can only play the tracks marked “NEW”.

    EXCELLENT! Brilliant idea, and well done. I’ve always loved this music, and it’s nice to see it compiled together. Put this together with the KPM library cd and Jonny Quest soundtrack I bought, and I’m one happy camper!

    I’ve always thought about doing this same sort of thing for the Scooby Doo incidentals, but never had the gumption to actually do it!

    I agree that this EXCELLENT! A Brilliant idea, and very well done. I too have always loved this music, and it’s nice to see it compiled together. Thanks. Please put this together with a Jonny Quest soundtrack and Hanna-Barbera library and I would be one happy camper!

    These are great! Can you do one for the musical cues in Courageous Cat?

    Ray Ellis’ music, on the whole, is particularly elusive, but he did have a huge body of work after Spider-Man. Just as he was cut loose from Spider-Man, Filmation called, and he was their chief composer for the next 15 years or so, working under his own name at first, then various assumed names – Yvette Blais (wife) and Jeff Michael (one of his sons) were the two most common. The Filmation work ran dry, then Reg Grundy availed themselves of Ellis’ services, first restructuring Jack Grimsley’s theme song for “Sale of the Century” (a big hit for Grundy in Australia), then doing about a half dozen more game shows for them including the long-running “Scrabble” and a show that ran for almost two decades in Germany, “Ruck Zuck”, often collaborating with his other son, Marc. Interested game show music fans recently asked a Grundy staffer if he knew where the music was and unfortunately Ellis’ masters for most of them were destroyed or misplaced. In among all those other assignments, Ellis also wrote the theme to the Today Show.

    Found your page via Jerry Beck’s Cartoon Brew. Wow, Nice to hear these clips!

    I’m sure there are varied ways to download these, but I just used the UNPLUG add-on for Firefox.

    Zapped all files in less than 30 seconds.

    Now to wallow in the music of nostalgia.

    THANK YOU so very much for the work involved with this project!
    I remember reading the WFMU article several years back and wished that all the tracks could be available.

    …now if you could do the same for the original SCOOBY DOO music, I’d actually PAY for that!

    ~P-L~

  15. [...] Of course someone has assembled all the music cues from the Spider-Man animated series. Why did you think someone hadn’t? I’m pretty sure #25 was meant for scenes at the Daily Bugle; [...]

    I was a kid when this show was originally on and it’s great to hear the clips here. Numbers 8,9,9.5 and 30 are all variations on the same theme and are among my favorites from this show as well of course number 20. How many think number 10 is in the vein of something on “ARCHER”? And doesn’t number 25 have a Sam Spence NFL Music influence? Just a great jazz sound all the way around and it’s great to hear . Cartoon Brew brought me here. Many thanks for posting these. BIG THANKS DAN

    Wow thanks so much for making these. I’ve hoped for years and years to hear the Spider-Man music on it’s own!

    Not sure you know about this. Someone ripped the musical cues from Star Trek Animated. On page 2 of the comments they explain the way they did it and the programs they used. Maybe this will be helpful to anyone else wanting to grab the music from their favorite Saturday morning programs.

    Here are 12 of the salvageable tracks that I’ve remastered. The originals have a very narrow frequency range and hollow sounding so I gave my best shot trying to make them round more natural.

    Improvements:
    - Hiss reduction
    - Reduction of uneven volume within the pieces.
    - Spectral enhancement
    - Less tin can sounding

    Enjoy!

    Oh, wow. I’ve thought of doing this myself but lack the technical know-how (digitally, at least) and the source material. What a treat to discover this post — that appeared on my birthday last year, no less! Thank you so so so much.
