Lou Ferrigno and Burt Ward on Childhood Dreams

Clip: Season 3 | 2m 5s

As a child, Lou Ferrigno read Hulk comic books and wished he could be like The Hulk, which he accomplished when he won the role on "The Incredible Hulk." Burt Ward's childhood dream was to become "Superboy" --- instead, he beat out more than 1,000 other actors to become Robin, Batman's young sidekick on the series "Batman."
