Trivia: The Incredible Hulk
TV series
  • The Danza: Jack Colvin as Jack McGee.
  • Directed by Cast Member: Jack Colvin directed two episodes. Bill Bixby directed one, plus three of the TV movies.
  • Executive Meddling: Lou Ferrigno claims that Bruce Banner's name was changed to David because CBS thought Bruce sounded like a gay name.
    • That wasn't really the reason. Kenneth Johnson did not want the main character to have what HE regarded as a "stereotypically comic-booky alliterative name". Imagine his surprise when it was pointed out to him that his lead actor was called BILL BIXBY.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Hey, it's Sherlock Holmes as playboy James Joslin! (Jeremy Brett in episode "Of Guilt, Models, and Murder".)
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Ted Cassidy was the opening narrator for the whole series run and also growled and grunted as the Hulk (the first two seasons) while Lou Ferrigno walked around in green makeup.
  • What Could Have Been: Ironically, had Bixby not died, a fourth made-for-TV movie would have seen Banner resurrected, and with the ability to control his Hulk power, according to The Other Wiki. Apparently dying didn't exactly cure him. It just would have made it so that Banner could control himself when he transformed... that and actually talk, something the Hulk really didn't do outside of the two-part episode "Prometheus" when Banner was trapped halfway between human and Hulk.
  • You Look Familiar: Several times, most notably Gerald McRaney, who showed up in four episodes as different characters.
