The Green Hornet

I'll give you a little hint as to my favorite character on the old Green Hornet TV show.


The Green Hornet TV show ran during the 1966–1967 TV season and starred Van Williams as the Green Hornet/Britt Reid and Bruce Lee as Kato. In those days America was mired in the Vietnamese War and, not unlike today, Hollywood pulled out some superheroes to divert our attention. The Green Hornet was played straight and I can not help but wonder if the show would have lasted longer had it been more like the popular Batman TV show. I guess we will never know.
