Bostonian Roland Winters (born Winternitz) took up the part in 1947's ''The Chinese Ring''. By now it was apparent that Monogram was determined to [[CashCowFranchise milk the franchise]] [[FranchiseZombie for all it was worth]], with [[TheyJustDidntCare little regard to quality]].

** The numbering and the title changed when DCComics got their hands on Chan and his Number One Son: ''The New Adventures of Charlie Chan'' lasted for six issues, the longest consecutive run for any publisher handling the license.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossOver: a partial example with Creator/PeterLorre's similar character, the Japanese secret agent Mr. Moto. ''Mr. Moto's Gamble'' was originally intended to be a Charlie Chan movie, after Werner Oland died partway through filming, the script was [[DolledUpInstallment hastily rewritten]] as a Moto vehicle. As a result, Chan's Number One Son appears in a supporting role as a student of Mr. Moto, desperately seeking education as a detective in order to please his father (who is never referred to by name).

* CoolCar[=/=]TransformingMecha: The Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon featured "the Chan Van", a vehicle which could transform itself into various modes of transportation from van to station wagon to sports car, ''etc.'', at the push of a button. (It makes one mildly uncomfortable to recall that it shared this trait with HongKongPhooey's Phooeymobile, though the canine crime-fighter used a gong to trigger the change.)

Added DiffLines:

* ProverbialWisdom: Chan is a smart detective with a definite aura of "oriental wisdom" around him (including, most notably, speaking in Eastern proverbs and aphorisms).

** Then, with now-defunct ComicBook publisher ''Prize Comics'', drawn by none other than Creator/JackKirby and Joe Simon, otherwise known as the creators of CaptainAmerica. When Prize lost the license, the series transferred to CharltonComics, continuing the same numbering.

** First, as a NewspaperComic that ran from 1938-42 (it was cancelled because the white readers didn't want an Asian in the funnies... even though during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII [[ViewersAreMorons the Chinese were on the Allied side]]).
