Product Description

Like Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier, Disney's Zorro transcends nostalgia. From the thrilling theme song ("Out of the night / When the full moon is bright / Rides the horseman known as Zorro….") to the lively sword fights and swashbuckling derring-do, this rousing 1957 series has lost none of its entertainment value for old or young. The 39-episode first season, presented in glorious black and white and complete with "be with us next week" teasers, unfolds in three story arcs. The first, Zorro's origin story, is best. The setting is Spanish California in 1820. Don Diego de la Vega (Guy Williams, like Fess Parker, an unknown actor catapulted to icon status) has been urgently summoned from Spain by his father to return home to Pueblo de Los Angeles, where the tyrannical Capitan Monastario has unleashed a reign of terror and injustice. Diego, a man of action, passes himself off as a bookish man of letters and by night dons a cape and mask to become the outlaw Zorro ("the fox"), champion of the oppressed. The other two story arcs concern a conspiracy to rule Southern California led by the shadowy Eagle.

Zorro was Walt Disney's first prime-time half-hour series and it benefits greatly from Disney's keen eye for casting, storytelling genius, and high production values. The cast includes Henry Calvin as the bumbling and rotund Sergeant Garcia and Gene Sheldon as Diego's trusty, mute right-hand man Bernardo (the two actors were later paired as the Laurel & Hardy-esque characters in Disney's Babes in Toyland). Zorro deftly blends action and comedy in its first season, with no mushy romance to slow things down. The dialogue is at once kid-friendly (younger viewers may appreciate it when in one episode Sergeant Garcia reads a Wanted poster aloud), but not condescending. Diego/Zorro possesses a rapier-like wit with which he handily disarms his foes.

This collectible Walt Disney Treasures set contains rarely seen archival goodies and rarities, including a clip from a 1957 anniversary episode of the Disneyland TV series in which Walt regales the Mouseketeers with a preview of Zorro. There is a featurette about the Zorro legend and the enduring character's various incarnations on the page and screen, and a new-to-home video 1960 two-hour two-parter that features Rita Moreno and Gilbert "The Cisco Kid" Roland as a dashing bandit leader. Fans eager to savor "new dangers and new thrills in the adventurous life of Zorro" should proceed directly to The Complete Second Season. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
This series surpasses the Tyrone Powers movie (which is also extremely good). This series is so highly entertaining, exciting and the characters you love. The sword play is thrilling, and the writing is superb. This is a classic. It'd be at the top of the ratings even now. This is what tv was when it was very good. I miss those days. Especially in suffering thru the crap tv has become. This series is wonderful. Do yourself a favour. Get it, and enjoy it over and over and over again. No blood, no vulgarity no car chases, no gas can explosions. Just high quality in every way.

Unable to fight injustice without endangering his father and friends, Don Diego creates the masked hero Zorro, the Fox. With unmatchable horsemanship and swordsmanship, this masked outlaw defended his people from the evil tyrants that wished to exploit them. Black and white, but well restored with good sound. Wonderful show. Why don't they make shows like this nowadays? Highly recommended.

J'ai reçu la deuxième saison d'un autre fournisseur avant la première saison. J'ai alors commencé à regarder la deuxième saison, mais aussitôt que j'ai reçu la première saison je n'ai pu m'empêcher de regarder le début avec Guy Williams. Cette série est vraiment incroyable: les textes, le jeu des acteurs, la musique, l'intrigue et l'humour. Disney avait mis le paquet pour que cette série fonctionne. C'est en noir et blanc( il y a maintenant des versions colorisées sur le marché mais elles fonctionnent pas ici) mais ce n'est pas important car le noir et blanc passe très bien. Je suis revenu en enfance et la larme à l'oeil tellement j'apprécie cette série.
Pour les vrais fans de Zorro, il y a aussi le film avec Tyrone Power en version noir et blanc sur un côté du dvd et une version colorisée sur l'autre face.
Quoiqu'il en soit, la télésérie de Disney demeure unique.
Belle nostalgie. Snif!

Brilliant writing which hasn't lost it lustre over the years. This is a very believable and enjoyable series to watch. I fell in love with Guy Williams all over again. Great action, the right amount of humour and terrific actors. I am very pleased with my purchase.
