Bloopers & Outtakes

In the bloopers, when Toon Lizzie gains large muscles in fear that she's becoming one of the guys, she suddenly turns green. This is an obvious allusion the comic book The Incredible Hulk, about a tortured physicist who, when angry, would occasionally transform into a raging, muscular, green monster called the Hulk. The comic was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and published by Marvel Comics in 1961. The Hulk character grew to become a popular icon to Marvel Comics. For Toon Lizzie, the gag was obviously aimed at the random way she grew large muscles in that one scene. This may have been a tribute to the Hulk film which came out in 2003, a few months before this episode premiered.
