  • Looking back on Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Mark Hoffmeier said "Season one was both arduous and fascinating with some days being up to eight to ten hours of meetings. And when it came time to break for food all Stan Lee wanted was a Snapple."
  • John Semper Jr. credits Mark Hoffmeier with helping him find Spider-Man's humorous side in the early days of working on Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
  • According to Mark Hoffmier, John Semper used the show, Seinfeld as a template for Spider-Man: The Animated Series because of how many different story lines would run through Seinfeld episodes. Semper then told Stan Lee about Seinfeld, and after watching an episode, Stan Lee went back to John Semper and told him that they should emulate the multiple storylines like Seinfeld was doing.
  • During an interview Mark Hoffmeier recalled that toward the end of the series the staff were scrambling to get the episodes completed in time and even hired people that were not familiar with Spider-Man. Hoffmeier said that because of this one storyboard artist wanted to do something different other than web slinging so he had Spider-Man attach a web line to the tail of an airplane so it could pull him through town. Hoffmeier pointed out to the artist that if Spider-Man were to do that he would be slammed into a building. The artist then changed the storyboards.
