This was the inspiration for fuckyeahhond’s April Fools joke!
Yes, this is a real comic that came out in 1982. It was an adaptation of an episode from a Hulk cartoon series that was airing at the time.
The original episode can be seen here, and it features such things as
- Stan Lee narration (and his pronunciation of Quasimodo as “Quaz-ih-modo”)
- Quasi’s giant bat companion
- A ~shocking~ twist about Quasimodo
- Some doink trying to steal all the gold in France on a train
- The stupidest ending ever
So yeah, that’s how I came up with that April Fool’s joke. XD

After the Hulk became more and more popular with Marvel fans thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal in The Avengers, people have been begging for a new Hulk film. Today, it has been officially announced that one of Marvel Studios’ upcoming films is indeed a Hulk sequel - and it contains a team-up with a familiar Disney character! Yes, the Incredible Hulk will be going against the Hunchback of Notre Dame himself in The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo, to be released May 5, 2017!
The plot of The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo is as follows: Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) has reconnected with his old girlfriend and lab partner, Dr. Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) and together they accompany Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) to Paris for an important meeting at Stark Industries’ French branch office. While they’re there, they hear the legend of Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame. While on break, Bruce and Betty decide to go and see Notre Dame, and climb up to the bell tower. Upon reaching the top, Bruce discovers that the legend was true…Quasimodo miraculously still lives, and he’s angry! Can the Hulk save Paris from Quasimodo’s evil scheme? Why has Quasimodo become evil in the first place? And how does Tony’s secret project fit into all of this? Find out in The Incredible Hulk vs. Quasimodo, opening May 5, 2017!
Disney’s HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME will have its U.S. premiere as part of La Jolla Playhouse’s 2014-15 season.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame Festival of Fun Musical Spectacular
This parade and concert was done for HoND’s world premiere in New Orleans, and it aired on the Disney Channel. It features many of the original voice actors for the other 90s films singing the songs.
I remember watching this special as a kid, and was really happy to find it again. Enjoy!
Hong Kong Disneyland features a Hunchback reference in the form of the Clopin’s Festival of Food counterservice restaurant in Fantasyland.
April 18th, 1998 — Festival of Fools closed
Finally, the show began. Esmeralda showed the most emotion; At one point her voice cracked when she set Quasimodo free and told him to go. At other times I could see tears in her eyes. Frollo got in a special line; When he would normally say “Enjoy the peasant festival, it may be the last you ever see” he said “it will be the last you ever see”. [x]

Too much time on my hands
I remember reading this comic in the actual magazine when it came out…It was around late 1996 or 1997 I think. I never thought I’d see it again, wow!
