Proof Positive is episode thirteen in season three of the live-action TV series The Incredible Hulk. It originally aired on January 11, 1980 on CBS.


When the publisher of the National Register leaves the paper, he leaves his daughter in charge. Unfortunately for Jack McGee, her decision to turn the tabloid into "respectable journalism" means that questionable stories such as UFO sightings and the Hulk are no longer considered appropriate for the paper. Desperate to protect his work and continue the hunt, McGee tries every move possible to convince his new boss that the Hulk is real.

Ending sequence

  • The episode takes us into the mind of Jack McGee for a change
  • The recurring nightmare sequence where McGee encounters the Hulk in a desert (the footage was reused from "Married")
  • Hulk out 1: Stock footage was used
  • Hulk out 2: Being showered with electrical sparks because Jack McGee has spotted him and is running after him shouting "Hey, John Doe!"


This is the only episode in which Bill Bixby does not appear (except in stock footage). A stunt double stands in for him for the pre-Hulk-outs. Even the ending sequence featured Jack McGee leaving an office.
