The Amazing Speidermann was a short-lived series about Jewish youth Peter Speidermann and his growth into a mensch during the tumult of the 1960s.
In the series, Peter traveled the country in a Winnebago with his mentor, Uncle Ben. Young Peter would struggle with feelings of inferiority, and would often be tempted by hippies who offered him drugs. The series usually referred to the drugs only by the code-word Mary Jane.
Each episode ended with "one to grow on," a clear pro-social message aimed at "today's happening teens."
Although 16 episodes were shot, only six of them aired before the show was replaced by Sid and Marty Krofft's Bong-O-Lantern.
A one-shot comic book featuring Speidermann, Amazing Sobriety #15, was produced in August 1962, but was unsuccessful.
