Storyline

Set in Spanish California, this often-refilmed story chronicles the adventures of Don Diego de la Vega, a young nobleman who lives a double live as El Zorro ('the Fox'), protector of the people of the Pueblo de Los Angeles during the early 1800s. Hiding behind the mannerisms of a bookish fop, Diego keeps his second identity hidden from everyone but his servant, Felipe. Zorro's greatest enemy is always the Alcalde, who personifies the distant Spanish government in Los Angeles. Cantina-owner (and independent woman far ahead of her time) Victoria Escalante provides the love interest. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Used to watch it with my dad...
19 October 2007 | by (Plainfield, IL) – See all my reviews

I don't remember much about this show, except that my dad is a Zorro fan, so we used to watch this when I was all of four or five. I remember it featured the hot Mexican lady from Three Amigos. There was a bumbling fat guy who looked sort of like a Latino Oliver Hardy. He was naturally the comic relief. I think there was a deaf kid who was sort of Zorro's sidekick. I think the episodes usually culminated in some impressive fencing. I thought the Zorro costume was pretty cool. I believe the theme song was the generic late-80s theme song they used on every action pack show at this time, that kind of passionate hair-metal-meets-orchestral-score music, except it had sort of a Hispanic flavor to it.

Like I said, I have great memories of sitting on my dad's lap watching this show, along with Rifleman and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Unfortunately, at some point there was a scheduling conflict wherein they started showing ST:TNG at the same time they were showing this, so usually we opted for the latter. Had we known TNG would still be showing in reruns fifteen years later, while Zorro would die a quiet death and never be heard from again, I suppose we would have rethought our decision. But you know what they say about hindsight.
