Trivia

The Hulk was inspired by Frankenstein. In this episode, Hulk meets and old drunk hermit, an encounter reminiscent of the monster's encounter with an old blind man who shows him kindness. That scene was also included in the film The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and parodied in Young Frankenstein (1974). See more »

Goofs

When the Hulk throws the bear, it's clearly either a mannequin or a guy in a bear suit because the bear's anatomy is very human-like. See more »

THE MOST EXCITING ONE OF ALL.
14 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

It takes place several weeks later. David Banner find refuge when a rich family takes him in, David takes on a new alias, and also strikes a friendship with a young lady(Laurie Prange) who seems to have trouble walking. But David soon suspects that the medicine her rich family is giving her might be poison. They soon try to get rid of him. But what they'll find out, making him anger will be a big mistake. Bill Bixby always gives great performance has the charming but sad David Banner. Not even Eric Bana played the part as good as Bill Bixby did. Lou Ferrigno is always good as the anger but sensitve monster. This episode has great tension, and action. Also an exciting scene where the hulk slugs it out with a grizzly bear. In a way it puts the 2003 to shame.
