Presented without comment

Japanese Spider-Man (yes, this was real):

Speaking of which, how many of you are old enough to have remembered this piece of sh** TV series from 1977:

Talk about your low budgets -- Spidey never talked, never fought any his rogue's gallery of villains (like the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, or Sandman), had only one web-shooter (which ejected something akin to a rope), and his "spider sense" was a pathetic photograph negative image-like thing that caused even my young teenage self to guffaw at the cheesiness.

A possible saving grace was Robert F. Simon as J. Jonah Jameson since his recurring General Mitchell character in M*A*S*H was sensational. However, unlike the movie version (played by J.K. Simmons), Simon's Jameson was dreadful ... like everything else in the series.
