Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government must find a cure for the monster he emerges whenever he loses his temper. However, Banner then must fight a soldier whom unleashes himself as a threat stronger than he.
Bruce Banner in the Animated version. Dr. David Banner is a brilliant scientist but, one day, a lab experiment that he is working on goes terribly awry. Since that time, whenever he is under extreme stress, his body undergoes a transmogrification and he morphs into 'The Incredible Hulk.' The Hulk is about seven feet tall, hugely muscular and powerful, and has bright green skin. After destroying whatever threatens Dr. Banner, he morphs back to normal human form with only amnesia and tattered clothing as evidence of what just transpired. As you can well imagine, this situation is quite troubling for Dr. Banner and causes him no end of problems. Written by

CBS initially did not want to continue with the series for the fall of 1981, even though the show's ratings were still respectable. Kenneth Johnson claimed that Harvey Sheppard, then head of CBS programming, felt that the series had run its course, and canceled it. With seven new episodes already filmed, Johnson tried unsuccessfully to persuade Sheppard to buy more episodes; also, according to Lou Ferrigno's book My Incredible Life As the Hulk, Bill Bixby talked to other networks about picking up the show, but no deal could be reached in time to keep the series in production. Nevertheless, CBS aired those seven episodes sporadically during the 1981-82 season. Due to the sudden cancellation, the producers never had a chance to plan a series finale, in which David Banner would have been successfully cured of the Hulk. See more »

Having just seen the new Incredible Hulk movie prompted me to reassess the famous Green guy from television days. Computer graphics certainly weren't available to the producers of the television version of The Incredible Hulk. That may not necessarily been a bad thing.
The Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno character in my opinion had a lot more heart and soul than what I just came from seeing. Now that could be because we saw the episodes in first run for four years and Bixby got to know David Banner inside out and his insights were shared with the audience. Even Ferrigno as the Hulk alter ego was far better than a computer graphic hulk with Edward Norton in their for closeups.
That show had to have the most expensive wardrobe budget in history. And I'm still wondering how David Banner on the run kept such an extensive amount of clothes. Certainly that other well known fugitive, Richard Kimble traveled a lot lighter.
The formula was like one of those loner westerns set in modern times. Bill Bixby arrives in a strange new town, gets involved in some local situation on the side of the good guys and when the bad guys push him, he Hulks out. No modern gadgetry involved, this could have been set at any time, it could be explained as a Frankenstein type experiment gone wrong.
When he was pushed the dark side of the hulk emerged and the late Bill Bixby certainly had a lot of tragedy and darkness to draw from for his Banner persona to fear the results of anger.
I liked the show, it wasn't great, but in many ways the superior of the film that just came out.
