ZORRO has always been one of my favorite characters.  I think it due to the Walt Disney TV series.  The show was made during the era where Disney made great family entertainment and not the stuff that passes for entertainment on the Disney Channel.    The Disney series had adventure, humor, sword fighting, entertaining scripts, and characters you love. 

 

Guy Williams is my favorite Zorro.   I pick Zorro over Professor John Robinson any day.   Even though the show only lasted for 78 half hour episodes and 4 one hour specials, it left its mark on fans around the world.  I first discovered the show back when it aired on the Disney Channel years ago.  The series featured the first permanent sets that Disney ever built.  Getting the details right were important to Walt Disney even if it cost a little bit more.   I’m ecstatic that ZORRO is part of the Walt Disney Treasures series.   Watching the shows again make them as good as I watched them years ago.   The two collector’s tins feature a booklet that is enclosed in each 6-disc set, a Zorro pin, and a collectible picture.   

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The first season collection has two extras beside the two hour long ZORRO specials.  First is an excerpt from the Fourth Anniversary Show of Walt Disney Presents which introduces Zorro.  Then the other is THE LIFE AND LEGEND OF ZORRO which gives a history of the character from his creation up to the Walt Disney Zorro series.  Too bad they couldn’t feature a little on Zorro after the Disney series.

 

The second season collection has two one hour Zorro specials.  The two featurettes shed a little light on the Zorro costumes and merchandise (A TRIP TO THE ARCHIVES with the son of Guy Williams and Leonard Maltin) while the other featurette (BEHIND THE MASK) focuses on the life of Guy Williams (who sounds like he had a fascinating life).

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:   The Walt Disney Treasures series strikes gold with the ZORRO series.  If you’re a fan of the series, it’s no question that you should own it.  If you’re looking for fun family entertainment, ZORROR still fits the bill even if you haven’t seen the show.
