Our favourite neighbourhood super-hero is used to working solo, but now Peter Parker must discover what it takes to become a truly amazing super-hero: being a spider friend who works well with others.

Preschool kids already love Spidey, so they’ll be delighted to have Peter Parker web-slinging across their screens in this new series, which showcases the exciting adventures of Spidey and his friends as they model the importance of teamwork and helping others in their community.
