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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>
When the commandant of Los Angeles, Alcalde Luis Ramone, corrupts the good people of the pueblo and oppresses them, Don Alejandro de la Vega summons home his son Diego to fight the alcalde and his men. When Diego arrives, he finds his town in a sorry state, and while pretending to have little interest in anything but books and his experiments, he secretly creates the secret identity of El Zorro: The Fox. He and his mute servant, Felipe, then battle the alcalde's tyranny, until the final showdown at the Devil's Fortress. Starting with the third season, however, another evil alalde is introduced, Ignacio de Soto, and the fight for justice begins once again.- Written by David Nesbitt <DLNesbitt@geocities.com>
In the 19th-century Spanish California, heroic masked swordsman Zorro, who's actually a local nobleman, must protect his friends and small town (or pueblo) of Los Angeles from its corrupt magistrate (or alcalde) and other menaces.
