The series aired on ABC from October 1972, to April 1975 for a total of 63 episodes. Kung Fu was preceded by a full-length feature television pilot, an ABC Movie of the Week, which was broadcast in 1972. Kung Fu was created by Ed Spielman, directed and produced by Jerry Thorpe, and developed by Herman Miller, who was also a writer for, and co-producer of, the series. The series follows the adventures of a Shaolin monk, Kwai Chang Caine (虔官昌 Qián Guānchāng) (portrayed by David Carradine as an adult, Keith Carradine as a teenager and Radames Pera as a young boy) who travels through the American Old West armed only with his spiritual training and his skill in martial arts, as he seeks his half-brother, Danny Caine.


jgstargazer : Me and my college dorm buddies would all gather around the TV to watch Kung Fu, it was our favorite show back in '72-'73.

Val L. : I cry when hear this music with the presentation, very good times. You could be really great lessons of life. I learned to love the Kung Fu & ancient chinese culture as Taoism with this brillant series that I discovered was a Bruce Lee's idea. Greetings from Brasil.

jason bardell : great programme , I used to love when it was one , you are still grasshopper

delukard07 : i like bruce lee a lot, but, having said that. i think it feels more exotic that a Caucasian actor plays a kung fu master. the problem Lee had is that at that time, Chinese action movies were to cheesy! Not to mention that a lot of people think bruce lee did hundreds of movies, when he only did 5 at the most.

Hunter Macao : Having walked thru the Desert [ In The U.S. & In Africa & The Middle East] It brings tranquility to the Soul!

Dragonheart : the main character was supposed to be played by bruce lee,hell this whole thing was his idea,but he got screwed over due to racism

Dave The Mace : Best Series Of All TIMES...

J. Mark Lane : I've been trying to figure out what the theme tune reminds me of - I think I finally hit it, it's reminiscent of Miles Davis' "Sketches of Spain." Anyone else think so?

Randy Cable : I own all three seasons. Bought them at amazon.com reasonably priced ! My favorite series of the 20th Century.

Hunter Macao : The Desert walking scene was filmed in Yuma,AZ.

Matrix Teknologies Inc : this concept of western and kung fu i found it it weird , since as a kid i hated western movies, some had good themes like bonanza; and kung on it own is great this just became a white vs asian person to me. never notice white kid became asian adult,lol

Kenneth Besselman : I have dishonored myself

tracy mcelhenie : in the End he looks like he could like a Sluppee..

Lee McDaid - Guitar : After all these years I've only just realised that Keith Carradine plays Davids younger self in the intro!....

Frank Catanzaro : my 3 rowdy brothers and myself, always roughing and always fighting as brothers do, would immediately and suddenly become completely quiet as soon as the first notes of this 'song' would come on, signifying that we were lucky enough to watch yet another amazing and awesome episode of "Kung Fu", which was just about to come on in a few minutes! hahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, loved this song, still do, and always will :)

Kurt White : 2:28

Kenneth Besselman : Is that the way you show your love?

thecrowrains : Just imagine for one second BRUCE LEE as the lead in this series! In so doing one realizes the immensely superior product we could have enjoyed in the 70s. This was Bruce Lee's original concept, but the bigoted film industry back then refused to cast Lee in the lead as character Kwai Chang Caine. The Bruce Lee Estate has the proof of the concept that Bruce brought to Warner Bros and Paramount film studios, originally penned as 'The Warrior'.  Bruce Lee factually speaking was 1,000% superior to David Carradine's abilities and grasp of the totalities of martial arts.

Javier Castillo : Este se estrangulo la poronga...peeomña serie y elnpersonaje quedaran para siempre en la memoria...

William Peddle : How do you spell suscinked

monsword : How old was Steve Vai then?

Kevin Clepps : How was Bruce Lee connected to this show?
