Trivia: Kato was Japanese when The Green Hornet premiered as a radio series in 1936. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Kato suddenly became a Korean. In the 1960s, when future martial arts superstar Bruce Lee (who was Chinese) assumed the role for television, Kato was meant to regain his Japanese heritage. But his ethnicity was never mentioned on the show, and publicity simply referred to Kato as "Asian."
