Interestingly in this Spanish Western series, Don Diego de la Vega has a mute servant named Bernardo who pretends to also be deaf. In "The Mask of Zorro", Don Diego de la Vega (Anthony Hopkins) is called Bernardo by Don Alejandro Murrietta (Antonio Banderas). No doubt playing a part he knew all too well, acting out his role almost the same way probably from experience with his friend. See more »

I remember I used to stay up until midnight to see this show on the Disney channel. It's wonderful. I thought Guy Williams was the most attractive guy in the world. Part of that made me stay with the show until it's end. I now own a bunch of the video tapes and sometimes watch them even today. None of the Zorro movies or shows could ever compare to this one. 11/10, if that's possible.
