7Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk

CBS produced a live-action Spider-Man series that ran from 1977 to 1979. Although the series was a mild success, it was cancelled after 13 episodes. Adding a little insult to injury, Stan Lee derided the show as being “too juvenile.” Ouch.

Far more successful was its contemporary, The Incredible Hulk, starring

Bill Bixby as David Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the jolly green giant himself. Bill Bixby got in contact with Nicholas Hammond, who played Peter Parker, and discussed the possibility of a Spider-Man/Hulk crossover which would air in the Spring of 1984.

Hammond was on board, citing an eagerness to correct the problems that plagued his show. However, as Lou Ferrigno was unavailable, the project was quickly canceled.
