Trivia (2)

In the book Marvel: The Characters and Their Universe: Michael by Michael Mallory, Stan Lee admits that he inadvertently called the Hulk's alter ego Bruce Banner "Bob Banner" several times due to his confusing his name with that of producer Bob Banner. In the letters page of Fantastic Four I#28, Lee clarified that Banner's full name in fact read "Robert Bruce Banner".
Co-owns the first five seasons (1967-1972) of The Carol Burnett Show (1967) with star Carol Burnett; it is because of this matter of 'dual ownership' rights that no sketches from those first five years were included on the syndicated "Carol Burnett and Friends", nor any complete shows from that period ever released on DVD.
