A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Kwai Chang Caine is a Shaolin Monk who is on the run after he killed the Chinese Emperor's nephew after that coward killed his teacher in cold blood with a gun. He flees to America to escape retaliation, and to search for his brother in order to settle down in this new land. However, in his travels in the wild west, he can not help but continually run into trouble from desperados and other ruffians as they oppress the innocent, while bounty hunters pursue the price on his head. Against this, he has his skill of Kung Fu martial arts, which proves to be devastatingly effective in this gun-dominated land.Written by

In several episodes, a younger Kwai Chang Caine was played by Keith Carradine, David Carradine's younger brother. Their other brother Robert Carradine and their father John Carradine also appeared in episodes (as Sonny Jim and Serenity Johnson, respectively). See more »
In numerous episodes, the characters are wearing clothing (like shirts that button all the way down the front) which were not available during the time period when the series is set. See more »
For the DVD release of some seasons the aspect ratio was changed from 1.33:1 (4:3) to 1.78:1 (16:9). See more »
I think the original 'Kung Fu' was the best show ever on t.v. It was wonderfully made, superbly acted and taught me so many wonderful lessons. I truly was (o.k. still am) in love with David Carradine's 'Kwai Chang Caine'. No man can hold a candle to him. He was the perfect man. Beautiful, gentle yet strong, kind, insightful, skilled...at practically everything. What gentle, kind men were Master's Po and Khan as well....and I believe if there were more programs like 'Kung Fu' on t.v. the world would be a much better place. I still watch my old tapes of the show and am now going to buy the DVD sets. The show is timeless and the scenery was great too. The movie? A must see. David Carradine is thee greatest actor to ever grace us with his magnificent presence.
~I love you David~
