Spider-Ham: Caught in a Ham (4:01)
IMDb; Marvel Animated Universe Wiki; Marvel Database; Short of the Week; Sony Pictures Animation; TV Tropes; YouTube

This was released in 2019, as a bonus feature on the DVD and Blu-ray of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and serves as a prequel to that movie. It was also released on the Marvel HQ YouTube channel.

Spider-Ham is swinging through the city one day, about to enjoy a hot dog, when suddenly he's pignapped by a mad scientist called Dr. Crawdaddy. Spider-Ham engages in some cartoonish antics to escape from and defeat Crawdaddy, while also making lots of jokes. And then, he's sucked through an interdimensional portal, which is how he'll end up in the main universe of the feature film. Anyway, I found it reasonably amusing (and reasonably weird). And I don't know what else to say.
