    The producers considered creating a new character, a female Hulk. Their plan was to take David's sister; a character already established by early episodes; and have her receive an emergency blood transfusion from him. Due to the show's cancellation, this story never came to pass. However, Marvel Comics learned of this development and created She-Hulk so they would own the rights to any such character. The character's comic-book origins turned out to be similar to the plan in the comics. The blood transfusion is still the reason for her mutation, but she is Dr. Banner's cousin rather than his sister.

    Goof (revealing mistake): When the Hulk breaks through a brick wall, (typically at the end of the show) the clothing that he wears changes between his approach to the wall, and to the view of him running down the alley, and this is repeated in several different episodes, which clearly looks like the same stock footage being re-used.

    In the comic book, the Hulk's alter ego is named Bruce Banner (although his full name is Robert Bruce Banner). For the show, however, the character was renamed David, in part because the name "Bruce" was considered too homosexual. A contributing factor was series producer Kenneth Johnson's dislike for alliterative names, which are typically used in comic books; Johnson decided that "David" (his son's name) was more solid.
