At some point between 1984 and 1986, I saw about half of a show (or possibly a movie) that I've never been able to find again. It took place in a contemporary setting (probably a city), and the plot went completely over my head, which suggests it may not have been a terribly kid-friendly story.

The only concrete detail I can recall is a man in a brown business suit going into a rage and scaling the side of a tall building, menacing some characters on one of the upper floors (or the roof?) in the process. There may have been some "Incredible Hulk"-style shirt-ripping, but I remember him wearing a suit at some point.

Of course, I saw this when I was around 3-4 years old, so I may have gotten the details wrong. Maybe the suit was a different color, or the building was actually a mountain, but there was definitely an angry guy climbing something, and I definitely saw it in the 80's.

Whatever it was, I'm pretty sure I was too young to be watching it. At this point I just want some proof that it actually existed.

Shirt-ripping hulked out man

Wild guess,....

Sounds like the cult classic,...

Heavy Metal
inspired by the comic book
Heavy Metal

A man returns home from a orbital salvage mission
after finding a strange orb. He's greeted by his little
daughter. The man examines the orb(Loc Nar) and
is suddenly, and gruesomely vaporized. The girl
looks on in terror as the Loc Nar begins to speak
and tell her it's tale.

Harry Canyon
A cabbie and the beautiful daughter of an archeologist
try to keep the Loc-Nar out of the clutches of a criminal

The Loc-Nar teleports a young boy to another dimension
and transforms him into the muscular hero Den

Captain Stern
On a distant space station Captain Sternn is outwardly noble,
but inwardly horribly corrupt. Captain Sternn is on trial for his
crimes. His bribed witness finds the Loc-Nar on his way to the
court and it transforms him into a raging hulk, which’s hell-bent on
destroying the criminal captain

A B17 plane encounters a hail of gunfire and
most of the crew is killed. The Loc-nar lands
inside the plane a transforms the corpses into
zombies. The single surviving pilot ditches the
plane and parachutes onto a remote island.
His relief is brief. Moments later he discovers
the island is infested with similarly zombie
inhabited planes and the undead surround him.

So Beautiful So Dangerous
A beautiful young secretary finds herself
touring the universe with the alien crew of
a spaceship

The Loc-Nar launches a vicious assault on humanity in the form of
a bloodthirsty warlord and his army horde. Humanity's last hope is
the sexy female warrior Taara. She's the last member of an ancient
warrior caste specially trained to battle the evil entity.

Heavy Metal

I was pretty sure you were wrong about this one -- I had seen "Heavy Metal" in college, and didn't remember this scene -- but I borrowed a friend's copy and watched it anyway.

Lo and behold, the third sequence ("Captain Stern") contained the exact scene I was looking for. The "building" was a space station, and the "brown business suit" was a pea-green polo shirt, but give me a break; I was four years old. Somehow, I had missed this part on every subsequent viewing.

What I can't explain is how it ended up on basic cable in the middle of the day in the mid-80's, and why I was allowed to watch it. That's a mystery best left for the next time I visit my parents, though. In the mean time, thanks for the help.
