Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this classic, comic book-based '70s series is about a man who transforms into the giant green Hulk when he gets angry. While kids may be drawn to the show by the sci-fi/comic angle, it's important to note that the Hulk consistently exhibits angry, violent behavior that may be iffy for younger viewers (and might scare some of them, too). Parents also need to know that some of the characters' comments and actions (including sexist remarks), though consistent with the social norms of the '70s, will seem outdated and old-fashioned now.

Sexual Content

Occasional kissing and hugging. Occasional comments that might be considered sexist by today's standards.


The Hulk is an angry giant who punches walls, destroys rooms, and throws objects and people (usually the bad guys). He doesn't kill, but people are sometimes knocked unconscious and suffer injuries as a result of his actions. Guns are visible. The Hulk is often shot at, sometimes causing minor bloodshed.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

While he isn't gentle, the Hulk does help people who don't have the physical strength to help themselves. Most of the people who are hurt by the Hulk are the "bad guys." While the core cast is Caucasian, African-American supporting/guest characters are sometimes visible.
