Storyline

Nuclear scientist Bruce Banner found his life turned completely upside down when he was supervising a test of his new gamma bomb. Seeing teenager Rick Jones loitering in the test site, Banner goes out to remove him. However contrary to his orders, his assistant Igor, who is actually a Soviet spy, allowed the bomb to detonate while Banner was exposed just as he put Rick in safety. Miraculously he somehow survives, but he has a new problem. Now whenever he undergoes stress, he transforms into the massive monster, the Hulk. Now he must fight either General "Thunderbolt" Ross of the US Air Force who obsessively hunts the creatures, or villains like the Leader, a mad scientist whose own exposure to gamma radiation made him a malevolent genius.

Trivia

The character referred to as the Gorgon in the televised version of the Hulk's origin story is actually the original Gargoyle. For some reason Stan Lee changed the name for this series. The name change could not have had anything to do with the second Gargoyle, as he had not been created yet - he was introduced into the Marvel Universe only in 1981. See more »

Very poor

Before the review, a brief plot summary: Dr. Bruce Banner, possibly America's most renowned scientist and leading expert on gamma rays, is about to test a bomb on a supposedly abandoned site when neglected teenager Rick Jones wanders out into it. Banner runs out to get Jones to safety, but his Russian assistant, Igor, sets it off anyway hoping to kill Banner and steal his formula for his superiors. Somehow, Banner survives, and Jones becomes his apprentice. He soon learns that at a certain point of day (and later when he gets angry) he will transform into a huge, brainless green giant who strikes fear into the heart's of the army. General Ross is desperate to destroy this incredible hulk, but his daughter Betty secretly knows he's really her lover, Bruce.

BAD, BAD, BAD. Unlike most Marvel cartoons at that period, it wasn't even in the "so-bad-it's-good" category. It's just boring. Let's start with the theme song. Most people know "Spider-Man"s theme, and it's wasn't a fraction as good. Anyone whose seen "Captain America" will also be accquainted with a cheezy but catchy little tune. The Hulk's theme was UNBELIEVABLY poor, and had this little squeak who sounded like Bat-Mite spouting inane lines like "so he ain't glamorous" in an attempt to make rhyme with "stricken by gamma rays". Usually the best animation on the show would be in the theme, but this is WORSE.

On to the stories. Before "Spider-Man", as most know, cartoons were mostly just comic-book cut-outs were mouths and sometimes a limb would move, sometimes not even that, the fastest animation (besides the theme) being in scenes were the hero would pull down a mask or something to that extent. Somehow, with the flow of the plots, you could still tell what's going on. Here, the poor drawings (they look like rough drafts with colour) pop up, showing scenes from all different, often irrelevent, angles that make it impossible to tell what's going on, and the narration is a drab equivalent of a Power Ranger overstating the obvious, only not nearly as addictively corny. The dialouge sounds like it was aimed at particularly dumb children, and the voices always sound SOOO bored, so unconvincing. Of what little you could make out of the plot, you could tell it stunk like Baldrick's family heirlooms. I simply never cared about Bruce Banner, he was so poorly characterised, and what characteriztion he got was cliched and sterotypical.

Stan Lee and everyone down at Marvel must cringe when they look back at this. Watch just about any other Marvel cartoon from the era, but pass this one over.
