From Comics to Toons: The Incredible Hulk behind the "steel curtain" (1966)

The Incredible Hulk is behind enemy lines, and since we're talkin' the mid-60's here, that means the Cold War. For some reason, they couldn't bring themselves to actually say Hulk was in the Soviet Union, or, behind the iron curtain, but rather, behind the "steel" curtain, which of course leads General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross to mistakenly believe that Dr. Bruce Banner has turned traitor........

One of the more glaring problems of the Marvel Superheroes Show is evident here, with the repetitive use of certain panels and facial expressions of the Hulk. Canadian producers Grantray-Lawrence and Krantz Films got the message, and went to full animation with Spider-Man the next year.

Rating: C. Not one of the better entries in the series.
