Add to Watchlist

The new adventures of Zorro is an animated series that follows Don Diego, a man of wealth and social standing, and his fight against injustice in Spanish California. Don Diego (voiced by Henry Darrow) fights against the villainous leader of the local garrison, Captain Ramon (voiced by Eric Mason). Unmistakable in his trademark mask and cape and mounted on his stallion Tempest, Zorro and his sidekick Miguel (Julio Medina) are regarded as heroes by the Los Angeles citizens.

Zorro, a master swordsman, often finishes his duels with three slashes in a Z pattern rather than harming his opponent. Along with Miguel, also accomplished with a sword, they ensure that Captain Ramon's isn't able to implement his oppressive schemes in his quest for personal gain. Each episode ends by reinforcing the morality aspect of the episode. There is also a quick lesson on the Spanish influence, whether through language or history, on our present day lives.
