A fugitive scientist has the curse of becoming a powerful green monster under extreme emotional stress.
Show producers have said they changed the name from Bruce Banner to David Banner to humanize the character; and pull him away from the Superman hero archetypes and stereotypes where all the characters have alliterative first and last names. (Lois Lane, Clark Kent, Peter Parker, Lana Lang, John Jones, etc.) So they changed the name to David. Bruce is now the character's middle name; and you can see that in the opening credits when Bill Bixby is standing next to his own grave, which has the name "David Bruce Banner" emblazoned on it.
I came to confess.
Pamela Morris: Confess to what, Mr. Milburn?
Harold Milburn: I... I... am the Hulk.
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.
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".
_Incredible Hulk, The (1977) (TV)_ (The pilot), _Incredible Hulk: Death in the Family, The (1977) (TV)_ and _Incredible Hulk: Married, The (1978) (TV)_, which all originally aired as two-hour TV-movies, are edited for syndication, allowing each installment to be seen as two-part episodes.
