Jake is episode forty of the live-action TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on November 2, 1979, on CBS.

3-39 Jake

Ending sequence (same road as in "A Solitary Place", "Brain Child", and "Interview with the Hulk")

  • An exciting showdown between the Hulk and an angry bull
  • A funny scene at the end of the first Hulk-out when a hitchhiker and a passing motorist both encounter the creature... the Hulk looks on bemused as they both flee in fear from him.
  • Some great stunt work in this one, where Banner is dragged through a river on whips by two of the hustlers. Unfortunately for them, this triggers the metamorphosis into the Hulk.
  • Hulk-out 1:  Being lassoed by the mean cowboys and dragged behind their horses across a bunch of dirt and rocks, and then being dragged into the river
  • Hulk-out 2:  Being thrown into a holding pen with an angry bull by some cowboys, hitting his head on the ground, and while he is lying on the ground trying to recover, having the bull kick him all over.


In one scene, a voice over a loudspeaker announces that there is a lost boy named Nicky Corea—an in-joke referencing producer Nicholas Corea.
