Trivia

Features a very realistic Voodoo ceremony, complete with candles, fire, trance music, drummers, chants and trance dancers. In reality, this religion is (or was) called Hoodoo, which is the name given in USA to the religion originating in Haiti, or Vodou in French. Voodoo is a derivative from the French, originally strictly used in Hollywood productions, but nowadays has long made its way into mainstream culture to replace the word "Hoodoo". See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Luke: I gotta hand it to ya, Tony.
Babalo: Tony? I told you the day we left the slammer, man, that I changed my name to Antoine Moray, the all powerful Babalao.
Luke: Look, I may do your legwork, Antoine, but I don't believe that voodoo stuff of yours any more than you do.

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.
