Have a question about Zorro?
If so, I'll do my best to try to answer it for you. However, I get a lot of
mail, and as most of it asks questions that have been previously asked before, I
have put together this list of frequently asked questions. Hopefully you'll find
the answer you need here, but if not, look for the e-mail link at the bottom of
What was the name of Zorro's horse? What color was he?
Zorro used two different horses during the series. Well,
actually multiple horses were used for different stunts and tricks, but they all
represented Zorro's two horses. The main one, Tornado, was black, and was seen
in the majority of the episodes. At the start of the second season Diego visited
the city of Monterey and it would have been difficult to explain where Tornado
came from when Diego became Zorro, so the writers introduced a new horse. This
one, Phantom, was white, and was given to Zorro by a dying soldier. It was never
explained where Phantom was hidden or what became of him when Diego returned
home to Los Angeles.
Can I buy copies of the shows on DVD?
I have a whole section on this - just click here.
Why did you take the show off The Disney Channel?
First of all, I personally did not take the show off the
air, so don't blame me! Many people visiting the site don't realize it but this
is a hobby for me and does not officially represent the views of The Walt Disney
Company. If it was up to me, the show would still be on. I have more information
on Disney's decision to take the show off the air
here, with addresses you can
use to let Disney know you would like to see the show back on television again.
Is Guy Williams still alive? Can I send him a fan
Unfortunately Guy died in 1989 while living in Buenos
Aires, Argentina. Click here for his
obituary from "The Los Angeles Times".
Obviously that means you can't send him a fan letter. The same is true for
the rest of the regular cast; all have passed away.
Can you send me some pictures from the show?
Due to the costs and other issues involved I am just not in a position to do
this. I occasionally sell duplicates from my collection on eBay under the ID of
Why was Guy living in South America when he died? Where
was his wife?
Guy had originally visited Argentina to promote the Zorro
series and was enthusiastically welcomed there by his fans. He enjoyed it so much
that he later moved there with his wife. She later decided to return to Los
Angeles without him and they amicably went their separate ways, remaining
friends until his death.
How much is my Zorro watch worth?
Well, it really depends on a variety of things. One is
condition - does it run, for example? This type of watch is very prone to over
winding, which leaves the watch relatively useless. If you have the box and
instructions that adds quite a bit to the value. Like with other collectibles,
the prices on the watches goes up and down according to the law of supply and
demand. My best suggestion is to keep an eye on sales on
www.ebay.com and see if it's worth trying to sell it. Thanks, but I'm not
interested in buying it.
Where can I buy or sell Zorro merchandise?
My two recommended sources are eBay and
Hake's Americana. You can usually find a
large number of Zorro items there at any time. Good luck with your hunt!
What can you tell me about the lives and careers of the
My site is really devoted to the Zorro series and not the overall lives and
careers of the cast members. If you're looking for more info on this subject
than what is here on the site I recommend visiting
IMDB or your favorite search engine.
