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

Circa 1989, the series was titled "Zorro, The Legend Continues" (or "El Zorro" in Spanish) and featured 24 episodes with Patrick James as Zorro for Caracol Television. Then from 1990 to 1992, the series was revamped as "Zorro" with Duncan Regehr for The Family Channel. Some international channels have aired the Patrick James version in 1991. See more »
The finest version of Zorro, bar none. Regehr possesses a truly unique combination of intelligence, athletic ability, grace, charm, class, discipline, artistic skill and terrific good looks to portray one of the favorite heroes of all time. Martinez is lovely, full of fire and passion, and is graceful and appealing. Victor is a lovable, clumsy, and ethically conflicted Sergeant Mendoza. All of the cast - Henry Darrow,Efrem Zimbalist Jr., JG Hertzler, Michael Tylo and Juan Diego Botto, do an excellent job. Sets are great, music is stirring, and the writing is superb on most occasions. Should have received more recognition, needs to come out on DVD. Not to be missed!
