Today, we break down some of the most memorable projects that Weisman and Vietti have worked on in the past. 

The Spectacular Spider-Man: Living on the edge, fighting crime, and spinning webs! This phenomenal animated series focusing on one of Marvel’s most iconic heroes, Spider-Man, is highly considered to be one of the most popular properties involving our friendly neighborhood web-slinger. The easy to follow plotlines, extremely humorous jokes, and fast-paced action makes this Spider-Man series unforgettable. While the series unfortunately ended in 2009, it continues to be held in such a high regard in many Spider-Fans’ eyes. 

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League: Our favorite DC superheroes are now fighting off evil in their LEGO forms. The Justice League is forced to take down a legion of doppelganger superheroes in the form of the Bizarro League, featuring such nefarious evil-doers as Batzarro, Bizarra, and Greenzarro! An entertaining joyride within not only the DC universe, but the LEGO universe as well, this direct-to-DVD movie allows for fun, silly romp for younger audiences and quick, amusing action and comedy for adults. 

Gargoyles: Gargoyles was a complex, thought-provoking animated series that catered to both children and adults. The show centered around species of petrified gargoyles who have reawakened in modern-day New York City and take on the roles of the city's secret night-time protectors. A dark, dramatic tone, rich character arcs, and complex themes makes Gargoyles an absolute spectacle to watch. Gargoyles ceased production in 1997, but Greg Weisman’s #KeepBingingGargoyles movement on social media is still very active. Make sure to check out Gargoyles on Disney+! 

Batman: Under the Red Hood: Arguably the darkest entry on this list, this DC animated movie focuses on one of the most iconic comic book storylines in the Batman mythos. The movie follows Batman's investigation into a new enemy known as the Red Hood, who may or may not be an old friend who has surprisingly popped back into the dark knight’s life. Incredibly somber, yet powerful in the dramatic department, this film’s wonderous art style, talented voice cast, and heartfelt, tear-jerking moments makes it stand out among the various animated films in the DC catalog. A can’t miss movie for any Batman fan, Under the Red Hood can captivate any viewer with its adult themes and plot-driven narratives. 

W.I.T.C.H: The animated fantasy series based on the Italian comic book series, W.I.T.C.H. was a unique franchise that mixed both elements of hair-raising adventure and character-driven storylines that made the protagonists incredibly interesting. The series centered around our five leads, Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin, who have magical powers which they use to fulfill their duties as Guardians of the Veil. Not only is the series funny and visually fantastic to look at, but the characters are quite relatable as well with the creators making sure that they come off as fallible, yet likable and humane too. The series’ vibrant animation style and quick, sharp sense of humor makes W.I.T.C.H. a timeless animated series that continues to be popular with audiences to this day. 

Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery: A comedic adventure involving our favorite Mystery Gang and the WWE foundation, this direct-to-DVD movie has anyone who watches this in stitches. The mysterious appearance of a ghostly creature has Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, and the rest of the Mystery Gang searching for clues along with the help of various WWE stars. An all-star cast, a sense of energetic, zany humor, and even cameos from some well-known Young Justice characters make this movie a fun and exciting ride in the world of Hanna-Barbera.
