I think I was about 10 yrs old when the next day after watching Kung-Fu, I decided to drop kick our living room wall, shortly thereafter my dad drop kicked me.

You young pups! When his character would have a flashback to his youth learning kung fu, the "master" called him Grasshopper.

I read one time that Bruce Lee wanted the part and was quite upset when they gave it to Carradine. I can't say I blame him. After all, the character is a "Chinaman".
