Guy Williams was the best Zorro
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also am reacting to the first commenter who says the old Disney series of Zorro was bad and thinks the Duncan Regehr and Antonio Banderas Zorro portrayals were better. I have only seen YouTube videos of the Duncan R. Zorro and it is awful in my opinion. The sets are cheesy and the story lines are boring. I do like Antonio Banderas as Zorro, but there are only 2 of those movies. Not enough to satisfy a real Zorro fan. I think Guy Williams was the best Zorro ever. I have all the Disney DVDs of the show and wish that somehow they could be done in high definition. I don't know if it is possible since they were all filmed from 1957 to 1959.

The Zorro series from Disney had good swordsmanship, great story lines that usually lasted over several episodes. There was also a lot of humor. Some of the best humorous parts were cut out of the movies that were made from episodes unfortunately. You are better off watching the series episodes than the movies, but if you love the series, then you will probably also want to watch the movies anyway.

It is a shame that there weren't more Zorro episodes from Disney. I have a lot of friends who never saw the Disney Zorro series when it was first on TV in the late 50s, but it was shown in the 80s on the Disney channel and they became hooked.

I got hooked all over (I do remember the 50s show) but I got my interest revived after reading Zorro by Isabelle Allende who also was a huge fan of Guy Williams as Zorro.
