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!

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!

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]

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME Stage Adaptation Developmental Lab Set For 2014! Auditions Announced & Dates Set

The presence of this extraordinary being caused, as it were, a breath of life to circulate throughout the entire cathedral. It seemed as though there escaped from him, at least according to the growing superstitions of the crowd, a mysterious emanation which animated all the stones of Notre-Dame, and made the deep bowels of the ancient church to palpitate. It sufficed for people to know that he was there, to make them believe that they beheld the thousand statues of the galleries and the fronts in motion. And the cathedral did indeed seem a docile and obedient creature beneath his hand; it waited on his will to raise its great voice; it was possessed and filled with Quasimodo, as with a familiar spirit. One would have said that he made the immense edifice breathe. He was everywhere about it; in fact, he multiplied himself on all points of the structure. Now one perceived with affright at the very top of one of the towers, a fantastic dwarf climbing, writhing, crawling on all fours, descending outside above the abyss, leaping from projection to projection, and going to ransack the belly of some sculptured gorgon; it was Quasimodo dislodging the crows. Again, in some obscure corner of the church one came in contact with a sort of living chimera, crouching and scowling; it was Quasimodo engaged in thought. Sometimes one caught sight, upon a bell tower, of an enormous head and a bundle of disordered limbs swinging furiously at the end of a rope; it was Quasimodo ringing vespers or the Angelus. Often at night a hideous form was seen wandering along the frail balustrade of carved lacework, which crowns the towers and borders the circumference of the apse; again it was the hunchback of Notre-Dame. Then, said the women of the neighborhood, the whole church took on something fantastic, supernatural, horrible; eyes and mouths were opened, here and there; one heard the dogs, the monsters, and the gargoyles of stone, which keep watch night and day, with outstretched neck and open jaws, around the monstrous cathedral, barking. And, if it was a Christmas Eve, while the great bell, which seemed to emit the death rattle, summoned the faithful to the midnight mass, such an air was spread over the sombre façade that one would have declared that the grand portal was devouring the throng, and that the rose window was watching it. And all this came from Quasimodo. Egypt would have taken him for the god of this temple; the Middle Ages believed him to be its demon: he was in fact its soul.

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!
