[show]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.
- Arnold Schwarzenegger was considered for the role of The Hulk but, even at 6' 2", was reportedly not tall enough (Lou Ferrigno is 6' 5").
- After its debut, the series was described by Starlog magazine as "one of the most promising shows to appear in some time."
