Watch the Evolution Of Spider-Man Over 50 Years Of TV and Film

It’s safe to say that we’re all a bit obsessed with a certain wall-crawling hero after the recent release of Spider-Man: HomecomingThe new film will add to the extensive and silly debates we love having about which actor was better in the role, which film got it right, and–with this being Spidey’s second MCU appearance–how weird it is that Peter Parker doesn’t know what an AT-AT is in Civil War but is beyond excited to build the LEGO Death Star with Ned.

It may surprise some people to know that Spidey has–in some form or another–been in our watchable entertainment lives for about 50 years now. And this super cut by Burger Fiction gives us a taste of every iteration whether friendly, spectacular, or amazing.

To say that the various Spider-Men (Spider-Mans? Spiders-Men?) have changed over the decades would be the understatement of the year. His early appearances were surely a sign of the times, with an adult Spider-Man having a voice better suited for an episode of Mad Men than a cartoon aimed at kids. Thankfully, his animated, live-action, and video game appearances have evolved along with his comic book counterparts. The days of a gruff authoritative voice fell by the wayside to make way for the younger wise-cracking web-swinger we all know and love.

Our only real criticism of Burger Fiction’s super cut is that they didn’t give us more of that sweet, sweet Electric Company Spider-Man with Morgan Freeman. But don’t worry, we can fix that.
