Doctor Banner and Mister Rogers

The late Bill Bixby, the late Fred Rogers and Lou Ferrigno as the Incredible Hulk
Mr. Rogers visits the set of the Incredible Hulk. I interviewed children’s television star Fred Rogers about this, and about small children's psychological reaction to superheroes, for David Anthony Kraft's Comic Interview magazine in the 1980s.
A decade before, when the Hulk series started on TV, I had interviewed Bill Bixby, the star of the series, at a CBS press event for newspaper reporters. I’ll never forget how Bixby mixed me a gin & tonic in the Hyatt Regency hospitality suit. He was a kind, hardworking actor whose life was dogged by nearly as much tragedy as Dr. David Banner’s.
