Adam Levine of Looper ranked Spidey and His Amazing Friends 19th in their "Every 2021 Superhero Movie And TV Show Ranked" list, asserting, "Bright, colorful, and wonderfully animated, it doesn't get high marks from comic book diehards, but has been nonetheless well-reviewed by parents of its young target audience for its wholesome stories and message of teamwork." Polly Conway of Common Sense Media rated the series 3 out of 5 stars, writing, "The whole "Marvel Babies" concept may be a little odd for parents, and more cynical viewers might see the show as a way to get even younger kids interested in the vast, lucrative Marvel franchise. But overall the show is charming, well-paced, and a solid choice for younger siblings who aren't ready for the movies or more mature cartoons."
Marisa Lascala of Good Housekeeping included Spidey and His Amazing Friends in their "60 Best Kids' TV Shows and Family Series of All Time" list. Dakota Mayes of MovieWeb ranked Spidey and His Amazing Friends 5th in their "Best Animated Spider-Man Series" list, stating, "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends is different from all others on this list in that it is geared towards toddlers. This modern update of the classic 80's cartoon left out Iceman and Firestar, and traded them with other popular web-slingers like Ghost-Spider/Gwen Stacy and Miles Morales, nicknamed 'Spin' to avoid confusion with Peter Parker's alter ego. This trio appeared in two computer-animated shorts per episode that were filled with youthful fun and adventures. Each adorably animated episode featured a classic Spider-Man villain committing some mild manner of mischief. More than that, the series even included an occasional appearance from Marvel superheroes like Black Panther and Captain Marvel to add to the age-appropriate fun. This show was such a hit with its targeted age group that it earned itself a second season, which is expected to air sometime in 2022."
The series was nominated for Best Editing in an Animated Pre-School Series at the 2023 Canadian Cinema Editors Awards.
