HighlightsEdit

Dirk Durock ("The Swamp Thing") is very eerie as the evil Hulk and the showdown between the creatures is one of the series highlights. Bixby gives a terrific performance in this episode! This episode has some nice subtle homages to the 1930s monster movies that Universal Pictures created (See Trivia).

TriviaEdit

  • The deceased scientist Dr. Jeffrey Clive is a reference to movie actor Colin Clive, who played Dr. Frankenstein in the Frankenstein movies from the 1930s
  • Dell Frye, the name of Dr. Clive's assistant, is a reference to movie actor Dwight Frye, who played Dr. Frankenstein's assistant Fritz in Frankenstein (1931)
  • The fictional town of Vissaria is also the name of the village in the Frankenstein movies (though spelled with only one 's')
