Note: Not all of this series has survived. We present here all known episodes in the best possible quality. Not every episode is hiss or crackle-free, but unlike previously circulating versions of these shows, almost every word can be understood. It's a good series, with a Dr. Fu that sounds a good deal like Henry Brandon, true to its source material and often very suspenseful. Upgrade your existing versions of this series and enjoy it a chapter a night!
