It has since become seen as the archetypical WalkingTheEarth show with a wandering adventurer who has higher spiritual aspirations, but is still ready to get tough when called for. Some of its dialogue became cliches in their own right (calling students "Grasshopper", and "[[WhenYouSnatchThePebble When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave]]" are two of the best known of these).
A SequelSeries, ''Kung Fu: The Legend Continues'', featured Caine's IdenticalGrandson and his own estranged son, a modern day cop. It lasted longer than its namesake, though it failed to gain nearly so much attention. ''Kung Fu 3D'' was a series of 12 {{Webisode}}s hosted on the Warner Brothers website in 1999; while it featured a character named Kwai Chang Caine voiced by David Carradine, it deviated from the show's canon. Caine is [[DoorstopBaby left on the temple's steps by his mother as a baby]], and he is in search of his father instead of his brother. The web series had NoEnding.
