Henry Darrow was the first actor to be involved with three different productions of "Zorro", and he is also the first Latino to play the role of Zorro on television. He was the voice of Zorro/Don Diego in the animated series The New Adventures of Zorro (which was broadcast as part of "The Tarzan/Lone Ranger Adventure Hour" (1980)). He then starred as the elderly Zorro/Don Diego in the series Zorro and Son. Then he was Don Alejandro, Don Diego's father, in this series for three of its four seasons.
Cathi Campo, the series' opening theme singer, is the cousin-in-law of Terry Botwick, who was, at the time, the vice president of original programming for The Family Channel network that aired this series.
Mexican actor and singer Fernando Allende was the first person to be offered the lead as Zorro. He declined the part, however, because the shooting schedule conflicted with his wedding.
Circa 1989, the series was titled "Zorro, The Legend Continues" (or "El Zorro" in Spanish) and featured 24 episodes with Patrick James (XII) as Zorro for Caracol Television. Then from 1990 to 1992, the series was revamped as "Zorro" with Duncan Regehr for The Family Channel. Some international channels have aired the Patrick James version in 1991.
Circa 1989, Patrick James (XII) appeared in a total of 24 episodes as Zorro for Caracol Television. The producers revamped the series for The Family Channel and replaced everyone in the cast except Patrice Martinez, in which Duncan Regehr played the lead as Zorro from 1990 to 1992. Some international channels have aired the Patrick James/Caracol Television version circa 1991.
Much different from the syndicated series with Duncan Regehr, this alternate pilot portrays Patrice Martinez as a wealthy señorita named Maria who bears the title of Doña. Patrick James (XII) portrays Don Antonio who becomes the successor to Don Diego as Zorro. Felipe also speaks and hears.
When originally aired, this episode featured an early version of the theme song. It did not have the rock influence, and it was sung by a man.
Ignacio Carreno who portrayed the impostor Zorro/old tinker (his performance was uncredited) was Duncan Regehr's stunt double during the series.
