Default Disney's Zorro and the New World Zorro

Any fans of Disney's Zorro, and/or the New World version?

I'm not sure which one of them I like best. I watched both of them when I grew up...both have good, exciting stories and great characters. And really I can't choose between Guy Williams and Duncan Regehr, it's like choosing between hamburger and pizza...impossible!

I felt like a kid again when I watched the entire new world Zorro in the beginning of 2012. It was never boring, it got better and better for each episode, and then it ended... I wish there were more series or movies like this one today, something the whole family can watch together. No strong violence, sex or language, and the hero is a perfect role model. This version of Zorro must be the most moral hero ever.

I'm currently watching season two of Disney's Zorro again (yeah, I pre-ordered them as fast as I could. Disney and their limited edition-thing...), and it is still a great show after so many years. Perfect combination of humor, action and adventure

I hope we'll get a new show soon. A Zorro in the same style as the classic versions, a show that's for everyone.

I love both,I find New World/90's very underrated and Regehr was great but overall prefer Disney's with Guy Williams

Guy Williams is classic Zorro and for me was the definitive version of Zorro

i remember always watching it on Disney Channel back in the day

I watched the Guy Williams Zorro as a kid and loved it, but only got to see a few episodes of Regehr's show when it originally ran, so can't compare the two at the this time. But I recently picked up the entire Run of the New World Zorro at a store that sells used DVDs, so I will be trying to get them watched soon.


**a side note....slightly related to these series**
I collect all types of movie and TV related memoralbilia, and I have some things Zorro related. Back when the first Antonio Banderas Zorro movie came out, they released a series of collectable movie related trading cards. As part of the set, they did several cards about other Zorros.....and one was of Henry Darrow as Zorro from the short run TV series ZORRO AND SON http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085118/...nm_flmg_act_54 Darrow later played Zorro's dad in the Regehr series. I got a chance to meet him a few years ago and took the card to be signed....so far that is the only piece of Zorro stuff I have signed.

Cool, how was he?

Darrow also voiced Zorro in The New Adventures of Zorro. I have the dvd, but haven't watched it yet.

And he replaced Efrem Zimbalist Jr as Zorro's father in The New World Zorro. And as you all know, Zimbalist voiced Alfred in BTAS

Darrow was very friendly and nice. It was at a convention for western actors....when I pulled out Zorro and Star Trek stuff he laughed and said "Well, well....this one really knows who I am." and did that giant smile he has.

When I saw them as a kid, it was in color. The DVD version is in black and white, and now I prefer them

I also remember that I wanted my mother to change my name to Diego. That would have been strange, a scandinavian kid boy with a spanish name.

I've never had a chance to see the colorized version...did they do a good job? When some movies were first colorized 20 years or so ago, they weren't that good. But several years ago Ray Harryhausen started releasing his B/W movies on DVD in both B/W and color using a system he had worked on...and they were real good.

Oh yeah, I am a western fan (and an old guy....I'm 56). High Chaparral was a good series. He had pics of him from the show, so I got one of those, the Zorro card, a card from Star Trek Voyager where he played Chakotay's father, and a card from where he was an admiral in STTNG signed.

56 isn't that old Batman was 55 in The Dark Knight Returns, and he kicked butt

I don't remember much of it, I saw a few episodes with my mother when I was home from school. What I remember most is Henry Darrow. But I know that the complete show is released on DVD in Sweden. I'll probably buy it in the near future. I think many of the older shows are better than the things we get today...

I remember Henry Darrow as Lt. Manny Quinlan on the old Harry O series that starred my favorite Fugitive, David Janssen...

I think they did a good job with the colorized version. The only thing that doesn't work is the night scenes. The 90's show had the same problem, it doesn't look like it's in the middle of the night.

Agreed!


Guy Williams to Zorro is like Reeve to Superman.Probably never to be surpassed.But I think I give a slight edge to the NW show.Maybe it's because I've seen it more recently than the Disney version.I always wished it went on a few more seasons.They left the series with a bit of a cliff hanger,in it was suggested that Diego was going to tell his father he was Zorro.(In the Disney version his dad found out,so I was totally expecting him to find out at some point.)

Just a little off focus from the threads primary mission....but I watched the Alain Delon 1975 ZORRO movie this morning. This is one of my favorites, but I really want to see the full version. Over the last few years, I have bought 3 or 4 cheap DVDs of it, and they are all the hour and a half version (IMDB says it was originally 124 minutes).

I'm not sure, but I don't think the full version has been released. My version is the french one, and it is 118 minutes or something.
