The Amazing Chan & The Chan Clan

Premiered In: 1972 Status: Ended
2 Seasons, 30 Minute Episodes


This children's series is loosely based on Charlie Chan. Charlie, who is never referred to by his name in the actual show, has 10 children. They travel the world in a van, with their family dog, solving mysteries. Sound familiar? Nearly every cartoon of this era was trying to rip-off the success of Scooby-Doo. Interestingly, Keye Luke who played Lee Chan, Charlie's son in many of the movies, plays Charlie in this series and one of his daughters is voiced by Jodie Foster.

Charlie Chan was already a very successful franchise, with almost 50 films under its belt. It only made sense that the series eventually come to the small screen. In the incarnation, Charlie was played by J. Carrol Naish.


Behind That Curtain

Released In: 1929, 91 Minutes


This is the earliest surviving Charlie Chan film, if you can even call it that. Charlie only appears in the last 10 minutes of the movie. Racism was still rampant during this period however, so it's not surprising that they minimized Charlie's role in the film. Interestingly, E.L. Park was the last person of Asian descent to ever play the part of Charlie Chan. It wasn't until the Swedish actor Warner Oland was cast in the title role that Charlie Chan was to return to film and meet with further success.
