Preview-The Incredible Hulk: The Complete Collection (DVD)

“Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.” 

Bursting from the Marvel comic book pages into this fully restored 26 DVD setThe Incredible Hulk, the Complete Collection boasts all 80 episodes from all 5 seasons, the two original feature-length films and for the first time ever, the 3 later TV movies The Incredible Hulk Returns, The Trial of the Incredible Hulk and The Death of the Incredible Hulk. The collection also includes some awesome bonus material.

After being exposed to gamma radiation, mild-mannered research scientist David Banner (Bill Bixby) finds extreme anger or stress transforms him into the terrifying and enraged Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). 

Richard Kiel (James Bond’s Jaws) was the original Hulk in The Incredible Hulk pilot but as filming began, producers felt he wasn’t muscular enough and so the scenes were re-shot with Lou Ferrigno playing the role. Kiel can still be seen in one brief high-angle shot of the Hulk looking up a tree. Arnold Schwarzenegger was considered for the role but was reportedly not tall enough at 3” smaller than Lou Ferrigno’s 6′ 5”.

Lou Ferrigno said that he had become so frustrated on the set one day that he stormed off and drove home while still wearing his full Hulk make-up and costuming. Ferrigno added that the sight of him resulted in a passing motorist having an accident.

Producer Kenneth Johnson wanted the Hulk’s skin colour to be red, believing that it would reflect the character’s anger. However, Stan Lee rejected the idea. Lou Ferrigno spent much of his time on set in a refrigerated motor home to stop his green makeup sweating off.

The Hulk’s growls and snarls were put on after filming by Ted Cassidy (Lurch in The Addams Family) in the first two seasons and by Charles Napier after Cassidy’s death along with dubbed animal growls. Cassidy was also narrator of the show’s opening credits.

Ferrigno lost 80% of his hearing due to an ear infection at the age of three, he has had a prestigious career as a bodybuilder winning Mr America and Mr Universe (twice). A new wig was necessary for The Incredible Hulk Returns TV movie as Lou Ferrigno’s hearing problems had deteriorated. The new wig was required to hide his new hearing aid.

The Hulk often wore green slippers to protect his feet in outdoor scenes. These are most noticeable in “Terror in Times Square.”

It will be released on June 28th 2021 – You can pre-order HERE.
