Based on Marvel's famous comic hero, this animated series presents the adventures of Dr. Robert Bruce Banner. An accident during the test of the Gamma Bomb (Banner's creation) transformed him into a powerful hulking being; since then he is on the run because the Army believes him to be a threat which must be destroyed.

The UPN executive assigned to the show really had no feeling for what the Hulk was about or what was most important to an action-adventure show in general, or to Marvel fans in particular. There were a host of creative differences, but what was discussed in most of those network meetings was her obsession with fashion-she kept insisting that everyone look like they just-stepped out of a shop on Rodeo Drive-hardly a look that would fit any of the main characters. The episodes delivered to network tended to reflect the creative choices of the production company over those of network. Cut to Season 2. The axe falls. The edict came down from network that the show would be pulled from New World unless there were a change of creative personnel who would toe the line; so the second season got a new producer, director and crew.

A cartoon about the Hulk was an excellent idea and it seemed to work for a while. It was true to the comics, or should I say the earlier comics, with the Hulk as a fugitive and on the run. There was lots of excitement and Hulk even ran into some familiar faces (Iron Man, War Machine, Thor, Dr. Strange and Ghost Rider). They even brought in the Grey Hulk and really showed how the Grey and Green Hulk battled for dominance. That was fun. What I found to be a major flaw in the show was She-Hulk. She was annoying and her dialogue was stale and dull. She was not needed but kept showing up. That and a decrease in quality of the stories contributed to the show's demise. Rest in piece The Incredible Hulk. Better luck next time.
