Trivia: The Incredible Hulk

TV series
  • Acting for Two: In one episode David meets his exact double, a mobster named Mike Cassidy. In another episode Lou Ferrigno plays a bodybuilder in addition to being the Hulk.
  • 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: Bruce Banner's name was changed to David because Kenneth Johnson did not want the main character to have what he regarded as a "stereotypically comic-booky alliterative name", although Lou Ferrigno claims that CBS thought the name "Bruce" sounded "too gay." Imagine Kenneth's surprise when it was pointed out to him that his lead actor was called Bill Bixby.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • 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.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: As seen bellow wanted to do a fourth Hulk movie that would had Banner in control of The Hulk. Flash forward to 2012 and Banner is in control of the giant green rage monster.
  • 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. Another movie that would have been a backdoor pilot for Iron Man was also being considered, and a She-Hulk movie was in pre-production at one point as well.
  • You Look Familiar: Several times, most notably Gerald McRaney, who showed up in four episodes as different characters.
