    This series actually draws inspiration from three works of classic literature. Stan Lee says the Hulk himself was inspired by Frankenstein's monster, while the alter ego of Dr. Banner was inspired by Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Kenneth Johnston added the element of Jack McGee pursuing the creature, so that the series was not unlike The Fugitive with Gerard pursuing Kimble each week. That element of the previous series was inspired by the character of Inspector Javert in Les Miserables. McGee also reflected Thunderbolt Ross, an Army General who obsessively pursued the Hulk in the comic book series.

    Richard Kiel was originally chosen to play The Hulk. However, as the pilot began filming, the producers felt that he wasn't bulky enough. Although his scenes were re-shot with Lou Ferrigno, one scene with Kiel as the Hulk in the pilot remains intact, a brief high-angle shot of the Hulk looking up at a tree just before he saves a girl from drowning in the lake.
