Mercury Zeitgeist Film Studios was originally hired to produce the opening sequence for Spider-Man: The Animated Series.


The production company, Mercury Zeitgeist Film Studios was hired to create the animated sequence for the opening theme to Spider-Man: The Animated Series. However, Mercury Zeitgeist Film Studios ran into some problems while creating the opening sequence. They encountered the problem of syncing different animation sequences into one. This meant they needed to redesign and reanimate for 30fps (frame rates) which is not a simple matter of adding six drawings to pick up the additional frame count. The additional drawing count was not included in the bid nor production schedule. As a result of Marvel Films Animation's refusal to pay these additional incurred expenses, all production came to a halt.
