The Taste Buds turn all of their attention to a very special episode of Spider-Man: The Animated Series  – it’s The Day of the Chameleon!

The Superhero Show Show #519

Spider-Man: The Animated Series – The Day of the Chameleon

In a rare, stunning event, there is nothing for the Taste Buds to review this week! Not a single TV show based on a comic book came out this week, so the Taste Buds are dedicating the whole show to the first season finale of Spider-Man: The Animated Series!

The Chameleon is in New York to stop a peace treaty signing, and this criminal is so dangerous that Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D recruit J. Jonah Jameson to help them. But that probably won’t be enough, considering he’s kind of a worthless idiot, so hopefully Spider-Man can help too!

Make sure to tell all your  friends about this very special (shorter) episode! It’s Mack’s first time hosting, so you need to listen to see if she’s great or if she is terrible! Plus, Ryan and Katelynn will help her give the episode the Webbies, including Best Web-Zinger, Best Action Move, and Most 90’s Moment!

It’s a truly monumental episode, not to be missed by anyone!

The Chameleon is a master of disguise with the ability to mimic the appearance and voice of anyone he chooses. The episode begins with the Chameleon impersonating J.

It showcases Spider-Man’s determination and quick thinking as he navigates the complex web of the Chameleon’s deceit. The animation, storytelling, and action sequences in “The Day of the Chameleon” contribute to making it a memorable installment in the Spider-Man animated series.
