From Comics to Toons: The Origin of the Incredible Hulk (1982)

When Stan Lee decided to add himself to the animation mix at Marvel by narrating The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends, you knew that Lee was going to see to it that the origins of the heroes would be told.

In the case of the Hulk, Lee and Marvel Productions took full advantage of the resources available, contrary to Canada's Grantray-Lawrence and Krantz Films, which went the cheap route 50 years ago, adapting the Marvel Superheroes Show directly off the printed page. Sixteen years later, the more definitive "Origin of the Hulk" made its way to NBC.......

It's been 20 years since Da Hulkster's last series, so don't ya think he's overdue for a small screen solo series again?

Rating: A.
