I'm wondering which came first. The red hairy HULK, or the red hairy monster from Looney Tunes?


Maybe they're related!

Upon further review, it would appear the Looney Tunes red hairy monster (1946) came first. Maybe the red hairy Hulk (1960) is the offspring!

Hah! Great connection, Dan! I knew this version of the Hulk reminded me of something else! Hey, for all I know, maybe Gossamer inspired Jack Kirby in his design of the furry Hulk.


Very cool! I've read that the Banner Hulk was inspired by an earlier character called the Heap (circa 1942)...but this Hulk actually looks more like the Heap.
