THE INCREDIBLE HULK RETURNS / Bixby-Brandon Productions - 1988

It's another Friday wif' Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Today we gots the return of the Hulk for all you kids out there. The story goes like this... It's been two years since the Hulk has been seen (two years since the series ended) and Dr. David Bruce Banner is on the verge of curing himself of the Hulk curse with the Gamma Transponder, a device that will rid him of the Gamma radiation poisoning in his body. Don Blake, a former colleague of Dr. Banner, is now in possession of a mystic hammer which can summon Thor, the ancient Viking warrior. But, when the Gamma Transponder is nearly stolen and Banner's girlfriend is kidnapped, Banner abandons the hope of being cured and relies on the Hulk and Thor to save the day!!

I've got a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our incredible heap, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a little sample from... THE INCREDIBLE HULK RETURNS!

By the way, that's a neato Halloween Countdown logo there that Eegah!! picked out for us!!

Dr. Banner is ready to use the Gamma Transponder to reverse the effects that cause him to become Lou! But, the machine gets turned off by a friend before the deed is done... Why?!

Time out!.. This pic sez it all for the Dungeon Gang!!

Okay, flashback... Here's Banner's pal, Don Blake, as he explores some caves. He comes across a tomb, he opens it up and grabs the hammer inside.

The hammer zaps some juice into him and the soul of the weird skeleton turns him into the Mighty Thor.

So, Thor is there to team up with The Hulk to fight crime in the city.

Thor smacks Banner and guess what happens next?.. Yep, you got it!!

Oh Hell yeah!! Lou makes his entrance...

So, the gang goes out and confronts the bad guys in a warehouse. JC, check out that freakin' giant U-Joint. If any readers out there know what that big hunk of metal comes from, please leave a comment!

KA... WHACK!!!!!

I recently saw Lou on THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW and he looks great and was a good sport... Something you need to be if you have to go up against Eric. Back tomorrow!!

I remember this episode/special. I was hyped to see Thor team up with the Hulk.

Back then, the Hulk was the only Marvel Comics character who had been really successful in a prime time TV show. So the idea may have been to do a series of Hulk made-for-TV movies, guest starring other Marvel heroes, and use them as pilots for possible spin-off series. There was also one with Rex Smith as Daredevil.
