Trivia

Although this was the most popular show in its Thursday evening slot, the series was pulled in 1959 due to legal wrangling between Disney and ABC. Disney tried to keep the character before the audience by shooting four one-hour episodes for another anthology series, but by the time the lawsuit was settled, the studio had decided the public had lost interest in the character, and the series was cancelled.

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.
