Trivia

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).

Two seasons and it's a cultural icon
17 May 2002 | by (MA) – See all my reviews

Zorro created for itself a place in history not purely on the mass hysteria of a generation of 8 year old baby boomers, but it's a quality show. It was ahead of itself in many ways, for the 50s family show at least: casting an Armand Catalino in the title role (yeah, Guy Williams, though you probably didn't know it); having a tendency to be a squirmingly gory (the list is long); using oft time complicated plots (like the 20+ episode Eagle plot); and something that is still fascinating to watch till today, a unique glimpse of a different side of California- it's history. As a native San Diegan, I appreciate that, and having grown up watching the show on Disney channel (you're looking at a generation X-er) it's amazing to find that it still captivates you from episode to episode. There's depth and content in it and the swashbuckling swordfighting, debonair flash will keep anyone captivated for long enough. That's what made it what it is... plus that Z. Swish, swish, swish!
