Trivia

When David Banner takes leave and shakes hands at the end, he pronounces Bill Bixby's catch phrase "Be good to yourself", which was a credo Bixby lived by, for he believed "if you are good to yourself, then you'll be kind to everyone else", as he said in one of his final televised interviews on E.T., adding "and I'd still like to see that".

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 »

Quotes

Babalo: The power of the Loa casts evil on you, non believer!
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Is that your power, violence? Is that the curse of the spirits? Because if it is, we have nothing to fear. Because he bought his power as you can buy his power, in a magic store!

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.
