Trivia:
Although "Zorro" was the most popular show in its Thursday evening slot, the series was pulled in 1959 due to legal wrangling between the Disney Studios and the ABC network. Disney tried to keep the character before the audience by shooting four one-hour episodes for another anthology series, but by the time the lawsuit was settled, the studio had decided the public had lost interest in the character and the series was cancelled.See more »

Walt Disney's ZORRO!!!--STARRING GUY WILLIAMS!!!, 31 July 2001
Author: (Tango2200@Hotmail.Com) from RESEARCHKING

What if an actor was tall, dark, and handsome? And what if the actor had learned to act in bit parts in movies with actors like Tyrone Power, Victor Mature, and Raymond Massey? And what if the actor could handle a sword???

It all adds up to Walt Disney's ZORRO!!!--STARRING GUY WILLIAMS!!! Guy Williams as both Zorro and alter ego Don Diego De La Vega is better than all the actors who played the role before and after him, taller than Tyrone Power, better looking than Douglas Fairbanks, and taller, better looking, and better with a sword than Antonio Banderas!

Walt Disney controlled every aspect of this 1950s black and white tv show--the black and white photography is the show's greatest weakness, and the new colorized versions on the Disney Channel are much better--and the result is an interesting departure from the standard 1950s westerns, with humor, adventure, and terrific sets and casting. Henry Calvin is sensational as Williams' chief foil, Sargent Garcia, and Gene Sheldon is very good as Williams' mute servant Bernardo. But it's Guy Williams, with his beautiful hair, his handsome face, his height, his well proportioned physique, and something about the way he walks, the way he talks, and some strange quality that he had--see Guy in CAPTAIN SINBAD!!!--some ability to convey to his audience, "Everything's going to be all right!!!"--that made Walt Disney's ZORRO the best ZORRO of all!

THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER GUY WILLIAMS!!!
