Peter from "Family Guy": Hey, Brian! Play that sad, sad walking away music from "The Incredible Hulk!"
The famous "Lonely Man" theme from "The Incredible Hulk" is one of the saddest things I've ever listened to. Seeing Bill Bixby hitchhike away from another town the Hulk smashed was always dramatic.

Okay, sure this show is like "The Fugitive", but I don't see Richard Kimble turning into a green monster every week. Bill Bixby turns in the performance of a lifetime, and even Jack McGee (the reporter who's after him) is shown in a few episodes to be a decent guy at heart.

Every week, David Banner would search desperately for a cure, and every week he'd help some person in need (similar to other traveling angel shows like "Quantum Leap" and "The Pretender"). Lou Ferrigno is a great Hulk.

Trivia

In the comic book, the Hulk's alter ego is named Bruce Banner (although his full name is Robert Bruce Banner). For the show, however, the character was renamed David, leading to an Urban Legend that it was because the name "Bruce" was considered too homosexual. Stories that claim the name Bruce was considered too gay for the series are grounded in Urban Legend. Ken Johnson has never said that was the case in changing Banner's first name to David, and there's no evidence that the Network or Studios asked for such a change. In the comics, Banner's full name was Robert Bruce Banner, and Bruce was established as Banner's middle name on the series as well. A contributing factor to the name change was series producer Kenneth Johnson's dislike for alliterative names, which are typically used in comic books; Johnson decided that "David" (his son's name) was more solid.


Quotes

David Banner: Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.


Goofs

When the Hulk breaks through a brick wall, (typically at the end of the show) the clothing that he wears changes between his approach to the wall, and to the view of him running down the alley, and this is repeated in several different episodes, which clearly looks like the same stock footage being re-used.


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

For the Sci-Fi Channel airings of the episode "The Psychic," the scene where the Hulk approaches a crying child, only to be scared off by the child's frightened mother is excluded.
