Can you name anything noteworthy Stan Lee contributed to Spectacular Spider-Man, because no direspect to him, but it just seems he's credited by default simply because he's associated with the character and nothing more. He's even a producer on the Deadpool film! I did read once his time with Bryan Singer on the first X-Men film, and it seems he has an office at Marvel (well, at least it does when he gets these Marvel interviews from an office).
Anyway, back to Spider-Man, I am curious as to what his contribution was, whatever length it was.
Stan's Executive Producer credit on The Spectacular Spider-Man was, I'm sure, contractual. But he did contribute.
(And, by the way, saying "he's associated with the character" is both a ridiculous understatement and does a disservice to Stan and his legacy.)
For starters, there's the obvious contribution that he co-created Spidey, and wrote a huge proportion of the stories and characters we adapted. That's why Vic Cook and I chose to give Stan and Steve Ditko the "Created by" credit, which was not contractual.
Then, of course, Stan Lee voiced the character of Stan in the episode Blueprints. He came in to record and it was an inspirational thrill to everyone.
In my career, there have been many people who received credits on shows who really did do nothing observable to justify said credit. But Stan Lee doesn't strike me as one of those. His contributions to SpecSpidey were invaluable.
