Set against the beautiful tropical landscape of Honolulu, Hawaii, this series centered around the cases of Hawaiian Eye Private Investigations and the two handsome, slick, tough-guy detectives who ran the firm, Thomas Jefferson Lopaka, or Tom for short, and Tracy Steele, a Korean War veteran and former city police detective. They operated out of a swank office at the Hawaiian Village Hotel, where they were also the house detectives. Assisting them occasionally was a funny, ukulele-strumming Hawaiian taxi driver named Kazuo Kim, whose wardrobe, consisting of a straw hat and crazy Hawaiian shirts, and numerous relatives living all over the Hawaiian Islands, willing to help his employers if they needed it, provided invaluable comic relief.

Tom Lopaka was supposed to be half-Polynesian, according to Jack Emanuel, a Warner Brothers story editor who originally outlined the basic plotline of the show while on a trip to Hawaii at the request of the studio. See more »
I loved everything about this show! The location, the suspense, comedy and most of all appealing characters. I had a huge crush on Robert Conrad and loved, loved Connie Stevens, even joined her fan club when I was in elementary school. I remember once writing a fan letter to Robert Conrad and I got a signed photo, unfortunately, I don't have it anymore...darn! I loved all the shows that Warner Brothers had at the time on television...Surfside Six, 77 Sunset Strip. I was saddened to learn when Troy Donahue passed away and well as some of the others. It was a great time for television.
I get to see Connie on TV sometimes. She has been on Larry King and I have seen her on a few awards shows in the audience. My husband liked to watch Black Sheep Squadron with Robert Conrad.
Thanks for sharing.
