Storyline

Nuclear scientist Bruce Banner found his life turned completely upside down when he was supervising a test of his new gamma bomb. Seeing teenager Rick Jones loitering in the test site, Banner goes out to remove him. However contrary to his orders, his assistant Igor, who is actually a Soviet spy, allowed the bomb to detonate while Banner was exposed just as he put Rick in safety. Miraculously he somehow survives, but he has a new problem. Now whenever he undergoes stress, he transforms into the massive monster, the Hulk. Now he must fight either General "Thunderbolt" Ross of the US Air Force who obsessively hunts the creatures, or villains like the Leader, a mad scientist whose own exposure to gamma radiation made him a malevolent genius.

Trivia

Along with the other four superheroes featured in Grantray Lawrence's Marvel Superheroes series, all the music featured dramatically throughout the episodes were effectively recycled from Trevor Duncan's stock library that had most notably used tracks as the main theme and incidental music in Quatermass and the Pit (1958). The only music specially composed for the series were the main title theme for each individual hero and the (now rarely seen) Marvel Super Heroes main title intro song and the Merry Marvel Marching Society song which played over the end credits.

A classic, Recommended for Jack Kirby fans!!!
26 June 2003 | by Nic_hseSee all my reviews

Don't be mislead by some of the negative comments you may have read. They just don't get what the creators were going for. Some say that the animation for the 1966 Hulk cartoon is poor. What they fail to realize is that the lack of animation was INTENTIONAL. The creators intended to bring the pages of Jack Kirby's Hulk comics to TV. Each scene in this cartoon was essentially a page straight from the comic with voice-overs added. They were going for an authentic comic book look and feel here. I've seen all the 1960's Marvel superheroes cartoons and they all lacked animation for the very same reason.So if you don't like the Hulk's animation, you wont like the animation for Captain America, Sub Mariner, Iron Man, Mighty Thor, or Spider-man either.

As far as the Hulk theme song goes, it's comparable to the other 1960's Marvel superhero cartoons. They were all sung by the same people and in similar style. So it makes little sense to say Captain America's or Spider-man's theme song is great but the Hulk's isn't. I liked all the theme songs. They all have a certain classic charm, especially if you grew up watching these cartoons. In the end I recommend the 1966 Hulk cartoon mostly for Jack Kirby fans and classic comic book fans. Any true comic book fan would know what the creators were aiming for with this cartoon. They did Jack Kirby justice.
