Why didn't Sandman appear in Spiderman TAS?

He would've been a great character, but instead they replaced him with Hydroman. Also, they had every other main villain in the show, why not him?

Sandman and Electro were planned for villains in James Camerons Spider-Man project. It was a rights issue...they actually got away with using Electro though....because he was nothing like Electr for the comics, but the Red Skulls son instead

Basically, they weren't allowed to. Sandman, along with Electro, were suppose to be the villains in the James Camerons Spider-man movie. the rights to Sandman and Electro went to him, so they couldn't use him or Electro in TAS. Instead of Sandman, they used Hydro Man, and went with a very different version of Electro.

I always thought that it had something to do with the show being aired during Sandman's time as a good guy
