Dr. David Banner is a brilliant scientist but, one day, a laboratory experiment that he is working on goes terribly awry. Since that time, whenever he is under extreme stress, his body undergoes a transmogrification and he morphs into the Incredible Hulk. The Hulk is about seven feet tall, hugely muscular and powerful, and has bright green skin. After destroying whatever threatens Dr. Banner, he morphs back to normal human form with only amnesia and tattered clothing as evidence of what just transpired. As you can well imagine, this situation is quite troubling for Dr. Banner and causes him a great amount of problems. All the while, he is pursued by Jack McGee, an investigative reporter who believes that the Hulk is a deadly menace whose exposure would enhance his career.Written by

There are several homages to the series in the movie "The Incredible Hulk" with Edward Norton. Most notable is him trying to translate the popular phrase "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry" into Portuguese. Another is the cellphone footage of the attack at the university being shot by a character referred to as Jack McGee. Third, and most obscure, is when Banner, played by Norton, is walking in the rain after leaving the pizzeria the theme from the television series plays briefly. See more »

THE INCREDIBLE HULK series was much like the series KUNG FU -- a sympathetic humanitarian and seemingly meek outcast rights wrongs using his very special abilities. However, THE INCREDIBLE HULK ran for 5 years with only three regular cast members. I am not sure if any other long running TV drama ever had a smaller cast.
Interestingly, Bill Bixby's COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER co-star Brandon Cruz appeared in the first season of the HULK in the episode "747."
Bixby oozed charm and charisma, and made believable the idea that he could so easily win trust and find employment in a new town each and every week.
The music was exceptional. Among the best Hollywood TV has ever produced.
