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.

In the comics (She-Hulk (v1) #1), Jennifer Walters was injured by a criminal angry about her legal work, rather than by Dr. Doom's robots. Otherwise, her origin was the same - her cousin Bruce had come to see her, she was injured, and out of desperation, he gave her a transfusion of his own gamma-enriched blood (episode 1.07 "Doomed").

Too many Hulks, She-Hulk and poor writing doomed this cartoon.
The 1996 Hulk cartoon started off great, the stories remained focused on the green savage Hulk, the army chasing the hulk, and Banner's relationship with Betty Ross. The art style is pretty good but the animation is jerky which means it has a low frame rate. The 1982 Hulk cartoon had better art and animation. The second season introduced the Grey Hulk and She-Hulk which quickly turned this cartoon to garbage. I never liked the grey Hulk in the comics and I stop buying Hulk comics in the late 1980s because of it. The grey hulk wasn't savage and talked way too much. The Hulk is supposed to be a brute savage, the extreme opposite of Banner's personality and to hear the Hulk talk like he has a college education just doesn't work.
The She-Hulk should have only appeared in one episode. The writers somehow got the impression that the Hulk couldn't carry a show by himself (even though he carried a comic series by himself for thirty years). So they rename the show "The Hulk and She-Hulk"... big mistake. She-Hulk has the same problem the grey Hulk has, she talks way too much and gets too much screen time. A better idea (maybe) would have been to have a spin off cartoon for She-Hulk. Anyway watch the first season episodes and forget the rest. Marvel has botched a few super hero cartoons in the 90's. Fantastic Four and Iron Man are also total garbage. Watch the 1982 Hulk cartoon instead.
