In Hawaii Five-O (1968), Five-O's offices were purported to be on the second floor of the I'olani Palace, which, in the late 1960s to early 1970s, was a state office building, but has since been restored as a royal residence museum. Five-O's offices for this series are depicted as being in Alii'olani Hale (right across the street), a state office building of similar architecture built in the 1870s, which houses Hawaii's Supreme Court.

The dancers in the opening credits are actually performing native French Tahitian "'O 'tea tamuré" dance (female in traditional Tahitian grass skirt with hips rapidly moving to fast drumming in a figure 8) and the male performing the traditional "danse du feu", or fire dance, and have no relation whatsoever to traditional native Hawaii dances. The hula dance, the traditional native Hawaiian dance, does not feature drums, nor grass skirts, nor rapid hip movements; its costume is made of medium length, green "ti" leaves and its main focus is on the dancers' hands, by which they tell a story. No percussion for Hawaiian hula, but their music is the unmistakable ukulele sound. See more
