Production Notes:


This, the second television incarnation of Charlie Chan, was in animated form, produced by Hanna Barbera, and shown on Saturdays its first season. The clever detective was back solving mysteries in this version, and was assisted by the Chan Clan, a group consisting of Charlie's ten children and the family dog Chu Chu. Henry and Stanley were Charlie's eldest, and therefore the leaders of each mystery/search, which took place in a different American locale every week.

The Clan tooled around in a van which could change into various vehicles, depending on what was needed for camouflage. The family also performed as a rock group, sans Charlie of course; he was always more of a solo artist. The well-intentioned Clan would try to help solve the mysteries, usually doing more harm than good; Charlie would then bail them out at the end of the show by clearing up everything.

The voice of Charlie Chan was done by Keye Luke, who portrayed Number One son in the live-action Charlie Chan movies in the 1940's. Except for Henry and Alan, all the children's voices were recast for the second season, as their accents were too hard to understand. In an intersting footnote, future Oscar winner Jodie Foster was one of the actresses brought in to replace the original voice talents.

The second season of the show consisted of repeats, and aired on Sundays.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Alternate Title: "The Chan Clan At Scotland Yard."
