The Green Hornet and Kato Masks
There were several versions of Green Hornet and Kato masks used during the entire show, from the early screen tests until the final episodes. The first TV version appears in episode #3, "Programmed for Death" which was actually the first episode filmed. After this episode was shot, molds were taken of Williams' and Lee's faces and form-fitting masks were cast for the subsequent episodes again with several variations to each. This will be up to the buyer/maker/wearer on which version you prefer!
