The character of Wo Fat, the principal archvillain of both Hawaii Five-O (1968) (as portrayed by Khigh Dhiegh) and this show (as portrayed by Mark Dacascos), appeared just eleven times (in thirteen episodes, as some were two-parters) in Hawaii Five-O (1968), over the course of twelve years and two hundred seventy-nine episodes, including the pilot, and the series finale, titled "Woe to Wo Fat". On this show, Wo Fat was also introduced in the pilot, but has already appeared in nine episodes, up to, and including the third season premiere.
The dancers in the opening credits are actually performing native French Tahitian "'O 'tea tamuré" dance (female in traditional Tahitian grass skirt with hips rapidly moving to fast drumming in a figure 8) and the male performing the traditional "danse du feu", or fire dance, and have no relation whatsoever to traditional native Hawaii dances. The hula dance, the traditional native Hawaiian dance, does not feature drums, nor grass skirts, nor rapid hip movements; its costume is made of medium length, green "ti" leaves and its main focus is on the dancers' hands, by which they tell a story. No percussion for Hawaiian hula, but their music is the unmistakable ukulele sound.
Each episode title is in the Hawaiian language.
