It was loosely based on the fictional stories of book and film character Charlie Chan who first appeared in the 1925 novel The House Without a Key, written by Earl Derr Biggers.
Legendary Chinese sleuth Charlie Chan travels with the ten musical-gifted kids of various ages, called the Chan Clan, around the world in the Chan Van. Although Charlie leaves them out of his dangerous investigations, they always manage to solve the case themselves and catch the bad guy.
