The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan

CBS (ended 1972)




  • Season 2 Episode 8: Scotland Yard

  • Hoppy the kangaroo has a pouch. However, only female kangaroos have pouches and Hoppy is a male.

  • During the theft of the coronation stone at Westminster Abbey, Hoppy the kangaroo and his trainer are right next to the Chan kids, who are pretty clearly a piece away from the throne and thus the stone. When the lights go out, you can clearly see the kids along with Hoppy and his trainer. None of them move from the spot they were in before the lights go out. Thus the question is raised as to how the trainer could have stolen the stone and put it it Hoppy's pouch if the two never approached it when they were supposed to steal it. Big mistake making these two steal the Stone of Scone in the dark when the audience can clearly see them not move during that entire period.

  • Season 2 Episode 7: White Elephant

  • Goof: In the scene where the middle children are about to be chased for the second time, Suzie speaks, but Alan's lips are moving instead of hers.

  • Season 2 Episode 6: The Greek Caper

  • In the scene where the four youngest are tailing the photographer, Nancy is seen telling Scooter to stay out of sight, but she speaks with Mimi's voice. Also the photographer rides past her a second time even though he was heading in Mimi's direction the first time he passed. This could mean that it was meant to be Mimi talking to Scooter, but, like in the third episode, Nancy was yet again drawn instead of Mimi by mistake.

  • Season 2 Episode 1: Double Trouble

  • In the scene where the Chan Clan all find and rescue the prince, Alan is seen in Tom's clothes and Tom is seen in Alan's.

  • Season 1 Episode 6: The Fat Lady Caper

  • Henry Chan is seen in the circus owner's trailer along with his father and some of his younger siblings when it is revealed that the fat lady is really a crook in an inflatable costume. However, he speaks with Alan's voice. Meaning Henry was mistakenly drawn in place of Alan who was the one who really entered with Suzie and Flip therefore explaining why later Henry, along with Stanley, tackled the strong man and another member of the circus claiming they're still trying to kidnap the fat lady.

  • While chasing the culprit in the clown car, Alan is seen in Tom's clothes.

  • After the thief is finally caught and taken away, it's said that it's time for supper, to which the circus owner says he's afraid all the places to eat at the circus are already closed. Understandable as it is late when Charlie Chan solves the case rather late and it's late when they catch the thief. Despite that, Stanley says it's never too late for super when your a Chan and then says they'll use "van plan six", which turns the Chan van into a hot dog stand. Only problem is, he hit's button 16 instead of 6, and the van plans appear to be on the numbers on the buttons which transform the van.

  • Season 1 Episode 5: Eye of the Idol

  • There was a mail collection box in this episode that was totally red. US mail collection boxes have been red and blue and all blue, but never all red.

  • When Scooter got in trouble for being inside the mail collection box it was said he was in trouble with the "Post Office Department" which in fact had been reorganized into the "United States Postal Service" two years earlier.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: The Phantom Sea Thief

  • Nancy pairs off with Suzie, but when Scooter and Mimi look under the maid's cleaning cart, Anne (whom is really with Alan, Tom, and Flip) is seen in place of Nancy. Later, when the Chan kids in the cleaning cart are seen, Nancy is correctly put in.

  • Season 1 Episode 3: Will the Real Charlie Cha...

  • While the four youngest Chan children are examining a Hawaiian jeweler, Nancy is seen telling Scooter to stay away from a man's safe, but she speaks with Mimi's voice. Considering Scooter's response, it's possible it was meant to be Mimi lecturing Scooter, but Nancy was drawn in by mistake.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: The Crown Jewel Caper

  • When Henry and Stanley shout for Mimi and Scooter to let them down, their voices are mixed up.
