SYNOPSIS: 

Charlie Chan and the kids are on vacation in Trinidad.  During a Buccaneer Days celebration, a prized exhibit, the Captain Kidd doubloons, is stolen, which brings Chan and his family into action.    

OF NOTE:

doubloon - (From Spanish doblón, meaning "double")  A Spanish gold coin.
 
Flip tells his Pop, "This set-up is like The Crown Jewel Caper, a natural for a fast grab."  (Referring to Episode One of The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, "The Crown Jewel Caper.")
 
Paraphrasing a popular Greyhound Bus Lines advertising slogan of the time, "Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us," as he drives the motorcycle they are both riding, Stanley tells Henry, "Hang on, and leave the driving to me!"
 
Stanley gives poor impressions of John Wayne and Jimmy Durante, both of whom were still very active and popular at the time.
 
Stating, "When you're hot, you're hot!" Stanley quotes a hit song by singer Jerry Reed from 1971 titled, and bearing the line, "When You're Hot, You're Hot."

CHARLIE CHAN'S APHORISM:

An apple a day keeps the doctor away - and sometimes catches the crook.
