The Laurel and Hardy like teaming of Henry Calvin and Gene Sheldon (Sergeant Garcia and Bernardo) was such a hit that when production on this series ceased, Disney held on to the pair (in case this series would resume) by using them in two feature films, Toby Tyler, or Ten Weeks with a Circus (1960) and Babes in Toyland (1961).

Guy Williams was the best Zorro in my opinion. Playing Don Diego as both foppish and intellectual allowed his character to be warm and sympathetic both in and out of the mask. And if you have ever watched any 60's TV show you'll notice that old set staple, Bryce Canyon, used for, I think, one of the first times on a television show. But just think, on Zorro it's not supposed to be yet another alien planet, but exactly what it is! A canyon outside of LA! That to me was always the cleverest thing about the show. The fact that it was filmed (sorta) near where it would have taken place if Don Diego had been real. I have to say though, I prefer the episodes in black and white. I think it looks weird when you see a bright blue sky in a "night" scene.
