Spider-Man, real name Peter Parker, is the titular main protagonist of Spider-Man: The Animated Series. This version of Spider-Man is from the animated series that ran on television from November 19, 1994 – January 31, 1998. In the series, Spider-Man defeats select villains while juggling his own love life as Peter Parker. Spider-Man/Peter Parker is mainly voiced by Christopher Daniel Barnes (who also voiced Prince Eric) in all the episodes, while being voiced by Jim Cummings as his mutant monstrous ego, Man-Spider for a few of the show's episodes.

This Spider-Man explores a certain aspect of his mythos in each season. This includes: the origin story of Venom, the misadventures with the meddlesome Madame Web, the formation of the Insidious Six (Sinister Six in the comics), and the alliances Spider-Man forged with various other heroes.
