Trivia

In one scene, David ('Bill Bixby') does a magic trick and "magically" finds a quarter behind the Louie's ear. In real Life, Bill Bixby was an accomplished stage magician and was a respected member of the Hollywood magic community, belonging to The Magic Castle, an exclusive club for magicians. Bixby also starred in a short-lived TV series called The Magician (1973), in which he played a former stage magician and amateur crime solver. In that series, Bixby insisted on doing all of the magic tricks without resorting to trick photography. See more »

Goofs

When David Banner & Renee Dubois open their office to find a crowd gawking at the Voodoo artifacts left hanging on their doorway, the same frame showing the extras is reversed to make it appear that the crowd is larger than it actually is, showing the same extras first at right and then at left. This is repeated at least three times back and forth easily revealing this production money-saving goof. See more »

The Voodoo Con
20 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

David Banner(Bill Bixby) is assisting a Dr. Renee DuBois(played by Louise Sorel) in New Orleans during the Mardi Gras as they try to help the local population who are held in a grip of superstitious terror by a local witch doctor/con man named the Babalao(played by Bill Henderson) whose elaborate act is denying the people the proper medical care they need. Determined to drive them both out, the Babalo and his henchman try to scare them off with voodoo, then physical intimidation, as David is once again forced to become the Hulk... Disappointing episode telegraphs all its punches too early, leaving just a standard and uninspired crime plot. Bixby does his best, but episode fails.
