Wooden Model of A Rat is the 21st episode of Season 8 in the original version of Hawaii Five-O


August March, a seemingly respectable businessman who is also an art collector, has been running a smuggling ring of Asian art. When he discovers McGarrett is also a collector of small Asian sculptures, March arranges for a stolen piece of art from Japan to be substituted for McGarrett's collection, which is about to go on display in a Honolulu museum. March sees this an opportunity to frame the lawman who could smash his operation. But McGarrett, despite all odds, moves to trap his opponent.



Ed Asner, best known as the tough-talking Lou Grant on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "Lou Grant" reprised his role as August March in two episodes of the 2010 version of Hawaii Five-O.
