  • Notes

    • This was the pilot episode, as evidenced by the different opening music over the "THE GREEN HORNET--IN COLOR" opening bumper, the masks worn by both The Hornet and Kato which otherwise only appear in promotional photos (After this episode was shot, molds were taken of Williams' and Lee's faces and form-fitting masks were cast), and the extended sequences introducing/establishing characters, sets, and devices.
      It's also unique in that it's the only episode that The Hornet lets Kato do all the hand-to-hand fighting! (The Hornet just uses a gas gun.)
