This episode aired 3 to 4 months before
the rest of the season 1 episodes, as part of a special sneak preview. For
some reason, FOX opted to air The Spider Slayer after this one, instead of
Sting of the Scorpion. One thing of note is that after this episode's initial
broadcast, FOX aired a commericial for Spider-Slayer, that ended with the
scene where Eddie Brock unmasks "Spider-Man" (it stopped right before you
saw Flash's face). A good way to keep viewers in
FOX KIDS Ratings Info: a 5.3 household
rating, an 8.8 rating for children 2-11, and a 7.7 rating for children 6-17.
The ratings were unprecedented for the 11:30 a.m. time period, let alone
a special "sneak preview."
