The Incredible Hulk is a Marvel Comics superhero, in later years often called simply Hulk, and the name for the original comic book title. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1962, the comic book focused on Dr. Bruce Banner, who due to a gamma radiation accident, becomes a musclebound behemoth (initially gray but more familiar as a green giant, often clad in torn purple trousers). The transformation was originally triggered by sundown, but later was directly tied to Banner's emotions, especially anger.

The comic book character's popularity led to several TV series, beginning in 1966, as part of The Marvel Superheroes syndication package. A successful live action TV series, starring Bill Bixby as Banner (renamed David) and Lou Ferrigno as the Incredible Hulk, aired on CBS from 1978 until 1982, and a string of TV movie sequels followed until 1990. Two theatrical films have been produced to date, Hulk (2003) and The Incredible Hulk (2008), along with scores of video games and other merchandise.

  • In the 1989 Muppet Babies episode "Comic Capers," the Incredible Hulk appears, in stock footage from Marvel Productions' 1985 The Incredible Hulk cartoon, in the song "The Sunday Funnies." He later makes a stock footage cameo when Baby Rowlf (as Peter Barker) opens an elevator door (with the Hulk's growls supplied by Frank Welker.)

Muppet Mentions

  • In The Incredible Hulk issue #474 (1999), a journey into Bruce Banner's mind includes a symbol of anger from his childhood: "Edgar the Grump", who lives in a dumpster on "Sassafras Street". The character is a parody of Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
  • The 2008 feature film The Incredible Hulk begins with Bruce Banner living in Brazil, in hiding from the military. To learn the local language, he reads a translation dictionary and watches Sesame Street. Footage of Grover performing "Over, Under, Around and Through" is used, and Joe Raposo receives attribution in the film's credits.
