A Reasonably Complete Look At The Animated Hulk

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This disc showcases the first four episodes of what I believe was a 13-episode single season (which wasn't followed up). The art is passable, above the level of GI Joe and Transformers, and closer to the animation in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters or (if you remember this) Dino Riders series. The episodes are self-containing and don't really branch out and connect to other episodes (other than the two-part "Beast" story). There are other supporting characters other than the Hulk shown in this series, which makes it an interesting mix.The extras are definitely worth your while. The 1966 clip is hilarious, especially in comparison to the recent movie and this DVD. Pay attention to the inappropriately paced and melodied opening theme song and the art, basically stills with large "Pow!" and "Bam!" type sound effects layed over, or shifting eyes. The trivia and the Stan Lee Soapbox should keep you entertained for a good 15 to 25 minutes, which also goes for the interview with writer Peter David.At the end of your viewing session, you'll have a more complete understanding of what the Hulk is about and how things about the Hulk have evolved, kind of like a mini-documentary. Recommended for Hulk fans, 80s thru 90s cartoon afficionados, but not so much for anime fans or those who were disappointed by the live movie and have only a little Hulk knowledge."
First Four Episodes of the 1996-97 Series

"This is a collection of the first four episodes of the 13-episode Incredible Hulk series from 1996-97. That said, you should be able to imagine the art and voice levels for this DVD. Funny enough, Lou Ferrigno of the 1970's series provides the Hulk's voice.The art is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/ Ghostbusters/ Spider-Man/ Captain Planet-level. It's decent, but the Hulk looks more like an aging Frankenstein (his face comes off as pouty instead of mad most times). The series opens with the two-part "Return of the Beast," followed by "Raw Power" and "Helping Hand Iron Fist." Hulk faces Abomination, The Leader and Gargoyle in the earlier episodes, and the more familiar War Machine and Iron Man in the last of the four. A decent series that was cut off and never had true closure."
