To paraphrase the Green Goliath himself, Buena Vista's Incredible Hulk DVD is a smash, providing 83 minutes of exciting sci-fi with enough action to satisfy Hulk novices, and scripting that hews to its Marvel Comics origin to please longtime devotees. The DVD compiles the first four episodes of the 1996-97 animated series, which outline the Hulk's origins, as well as the struggles of his human alter ego, Bruce Banner, to rid himself of the creature. The episodes also make fine use of Marvel's rosters of heroes and villains; in the two-part "Return of the Beast," the Hulk tangles with the Leader, the Gargoyle, and the hideous Abomination, while in "Raw Power," he's up against the malevolent ZZZAX; and in "Helping Hand, Iron Fist," he goes mano-a-mano with Iron Man and War Machine. Terrific performances (TV Hulk Lou Ferrigno provides the creature's voice) and extensive extras make this DVD a must-have for comic and cartoon aficionados. --Paul Gaita

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.

The Hulk had always been one of my favorite Marvel Comics superheroes and I like the 1996 animated TV series. Too bad Disney didn't realize the complete series which includes episodes of the She-Hulk because I had a huge crush on her. Even though she's green, she's smoking hot. Anyway, I like this DVD with four episodes of the animated series because I grew up looking at this show. This series is about Bruce Banner continues to find a cure to release him from the Hulk but he's always on the run from General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross & the Hulkbusters. The only allies the Hulk had was his love interest Betty Ross (the daughter of General Ross) & his best friend Rick Jones. The Hulk also clashes with Iron Man in the episode "Helping Hand, Iron Fist" (the second time Iron Man & the Hulk clashes since the episode "Hulk Buster" on "Iron Man"). Of course, the special features are fun which includes a episode from the 1966 animated show of "The Incredible Hulk" which is based on the comic book origin.

I have two boys 2 1/2 and 4 who love the Hulk. They have been enjoying this DVD both at home as well as in the car. I am very satisfied with this purchase - it is in great quality for a used product.

I really enjoyed watching episodes as they portrayed Hulk similar to the original comic books. High quality animation and good storylines make this DVD a must for all fellow Hulk-ophiles! The bonus episode from the '70's was fun, even with the bad animation. The comic book became the storyboard for the episode. The only thing that didn't work was when Hulk spoke, he sounded like he was drunk. Is that all there is? I want more.

Like several other Marvel characters, Hulk got his own animated series during the 90s. I had rented a tape of the 80s cartoon not long before this show came out, & I loved it but I came to love this even more. It was a pretty dark series that perfectly captured the atmosphere of the comics. But unfortunately the stupid executives decreed it had to be toned down for kids, & made She-Hulk a major character, which wouldn't have been bad if she was like in the first season, but it was a different She-Hulk, with a new voice & a stupid new personality. Even as a kid I hated the change, & so the show died a quick death. A pity because it could have made a really good series but at least the first season is still excellent. This DVD contains the first 4 episodes. Here's a review of each, with synopsizes from Wikipedia.

1-2. Return of the Beast: Bruce Banner attempts to cure himself of the Hulk once again, but his experiment is shut down by General Ross and Major Talbot. They capture the Hulk and take him to the Gamma Base. While on the base, Banner recalls his origin. Suddenly, the Abomination arrives on the scene, sent by the Leader and Gargoyle to capture Banner, and it's up to the Hulk to stop him. This is an excellent start to the series. A+

3. Raw Power: The Hulk encounters Mitch McCougthen, a man who absolutely hates his job and yearns for a higher position in life. Later, Bruce befriends him and the two of them try to see if they can get rid of the Hulk. However, their experiment goes awry and McCoughten turns into Zzzax, a being of pure energy. Can the Hulk stop him before he destroys a dam? My least favorite episode on the disc and of the season to be honest, but it's still above average. A-

This dvd is loaded with alot of Hulk action and holds your interest till the end. My only grip is that it is a little short. I would have preferred have more of the series episodes especially without a volume 2. But if you like Hulk I would buy it.

Shipped in a timely manner, however could have shown a bit more detail info. on how many episodes it had or if it's the complete tv series which in this case it's not, not too pleased because it's too short.
