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 backwards and the camera pans left, just before the scene cuts to another angle, we can clearly see a man sitting on an egg crate on the lake shore wearing Speedos. He is not a character from the scene and must be part of the production crew. We can also see an extra blue ripped shirt sitting with a strand of rope. Seen on Netflix. See more »

Great episode and great childhood memory
20 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode will always have a special place in my heart. I don't often get emotional over TV, especially nowadays but this episode gets me every time I see it. The performances by the main three people in this episode are wonderful. Bill Bixby is great. Laurie Prange who plays the crippled girl is perfect. Anytime I see her in anything else I remember her outstanding performance from this episode. She had such a sweet and gentle way about her. Finally John Mcliam as the old man who did not want to get involved until the end was fantastic. I have seen him in a lot of different TV shows over time and he's always great. The show as a whole always kind of makes me sad. David Banner always helps someone in need and then he has to leave in the end. The piano tune always plays at the end to keep the saddening mood. Still this is a very good show.
