Six Flags and Spiderman

Sunday, June 15, 2003 7:43 AM
After riding S:UF on Friday and going through Heros (its a gift shop at SFGAm) I noticed t-shirts that had Spiderman on them. Does Six Flags have rights to do this. Please answer. Thanks1

Doesn't Cartoon Network carry Spiderman cartoons? If they do, that's probably the round-about way that SF got rights to it. At SFWoA, some of the games carry Scooby Doo and other Hanna-Barbara characters through a Cartoon Network license.

SFGAm must have something worked out to carry Spiderman and other items. You can check the labels on the Spiderman merchandise to see if it has Six Flags written on it(I don't think it will be there, though). There are other items that don't seem to fit the D.C. Comics/Looney Tunes theme at SFGAm, including Sesame Street characters, Spongebob Squarepants, Simpsons, Incredible Hulk, Disney-like characters and others.

Except, I noticed Totally Tweety (which sold absolutely nothing Tweety when I was at the park yesterday) at SFA was selling Spiderman sports drinks yesterday....

Merchandise is often licensed seperately, which is why you have SpongeBob stuff (which is Viacom, i.e., Paramount) all over the place as well.

I'm not sure if a rollercoaster/thrill ride would fall under the 'merchandise' category. Just like you won't find a Batman-themed ride at Universal, you probably won't find a Spiderman-themed ride at Six Flags. I believe SF has the rights to DC-themed rides and Universal has the rights to Marvel-themed rides.

So, all a park has to do is get rights?

and i don't think they'll buy the rights for a name for any other comic company because dc wouldn't be that happy...

Which part of, "Merchandise is often licensed seperately" wasn't clear?

I wasn't asking that. I was asking if a Six Flags can name a ride after Spider Man.
