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 got interested in Zorro around age 9. Since then I think Zorro is one of the best heroes ever. That is because he has character, true courage, moral values, and displays the truth. That is what I like about the "New Zorro" episodes. There is a lesson for each episode. A good moral lesson. Heroes today lack these characteristics. Even the new Zorro. It's all about Romance and schemes not true justice and values. The "New Zorro" portrayed the corruption of politics and government when tyranny takes over. The income tax is referred to as a "bizarre concept," and rightly so. I hope these episodes go back on tv. These episodes were a voice speaking out in our modern day of what good moral values are and what are government is supposed to be and ought to do.
