Terrific episode featuring spunky Annette Funicello...
20 March 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Available on VHS under the title "The Mystery of Don Cabrillo", this is a terrific episode from Walt Disney's "Zorro" TV series. Wonderfully spunky Annette Funicello guest stars as a pretty, but seemingly confused young girl, perhaps a pathological liar, arriving in Los Angeles from Spain and attempting to reconnect with her estranged father--whom no one has ever heard of. The identity of her papa is a big surprise (and is deftly handled) while Guy Williams lays on the smooth charm as Don Diego/Zorro, the best of all-time in my opinion. Tongue-in-cheek moments of humor and adventure make for a highly entertaining show, and again, Annette is terrific in her colorful appearance, and even sings a little ditty on the guitar (but don't watch her strumming fingers too closely!).
