Among the best
THE INCREDIBLE HULK series was much like the series KUNG FU -- a sympathetic humanitarian and seemingly meek outcast rights wrongs using his very special abilities. However, THE INCREDIBLE HULK ran for 5 years with only three regular cast members. I am not sure if any other long running TV drama ever had a smaller cast.

Interestingly, Bill Bixby's COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER co-star Brandon Cruz appeared in the first season of the HULK in the episode "747."

Bixby oozed charm and charisma, and made believable the idea that he could so easily win trust and find employment in a new town each and every week.

The music was exceptional. Among the best Hollywood TV has ever produced.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


Highway to Heaven: Oh Lucky Man (1986) borrowed the Lonely Man theme, without crediting the production, nor paying royalties. This can be heard after the boy punches his cake, however only the first few notes play, for barely two seconds. Michael Landon was very envious of Bill Bixby, whom he despised, as he did all true handsome men. For that reason, he would not have wanted the public to be able to tell that he used music from a wildly successful series starring the one man he was the most envious of. Landon also concealed it, mainly because the skinflint would have had to pay royalties, if this had been found out. However, just those few famous notes are enough for fans of the '70s sci-fi drama to recognize its iconic theme. It ought to be noted that Landon refused to invite Bill Bixby to guest star in any of his series, because Landon did not want men he deemed better looking than him, such as Bill Bixby, anywhere near him.


David Banner: Damn! Car, you're making me angry, now if you get me angry, you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna turn you into a tin sandwich!


In Death in the family when the hulk is fighting the bear some of the green makeup gets on the bear in a few shots.

Crazy Credits

In the opening sequence, the lit up gamma ray display can be seen with the word "anger" on it, which is zoomed out to show the full word is "danger".

Alternate Versions

In the U.S. syndicated airings of the episode "The Hulk Breaks Las Vegas," the scene where the Hulk wreaks havoc at the casino is deleted. (Nonetheless, it is restored in the Sci-Fi Channel telecasts.)
