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

Henry Darrow was the first actor to be involved with three different productions of "Zorro", and he is also the first Latino to play the role of Zorro on television. He was the voice of Zorro/Don Diego in the animated series The New Adventures of Zorro (1981) (which was broadcast as part of The Tarzan/Lone Ranger/Zorro Adventure Hour (1980)). He then starred as the elderly Zorro/Don Diego in the series Zorro and Son (1983). Then he was Don Alejandro, Don Diego's father, in this series for three of its four seasons. See more »
I loved this version of the Zorro story. It was such a shame that the show ended right when it was reaching a climax. Don Diego was about to reveal to his father and Victoria Escelante that he was Zorro. The episode in the last season where his lost brother discovered his identity was awesome. This series, unfortunately, was cancelled without a desperately needed resolution. I really wish they at least would do a reunion movie to tie up he loose ends, but unfortunately, it will never happen.
