The New Adventures of Zorro (not to be confused with the 1981 Filmation TV show of the same name) was an animated TV series that aired for two seasons on Kids' WB! from 1997-1998 (with reruns later showing on Cartoon Network) before being cancelled. A multinational production, the show was produced by Warner Brothers Television Productions in America, Fred Wolf Films in Ireland, and Harvest Entertainment in England.[1]

Summary

The show followed the adventures of masked vigilante Don Diego de la Vega, A.K.A. Zorro (voiced by Michael J. Gough), on his adventures through the countryside of Spain. The show's plots would usually climax with Zorro battling a villain with supernatural powers or steampunk-style contraptions. The supporting cast consisted of Isabella (Jeannie Elias), Zorro's love interest; Don Alejandro de le Vega (Patrick Fraley), Zorro's father; Captain Montecero (Earl Boen), the show's primary antagonist who sought to bring the vigilante to justice; and Sergeant Garcia (Tony Pope), a hapless Spanish soldier. Many episodes involved one or more characters trying to discover Zorro's secret identity.

Availability

Currently, while the entirety of the show has been found dubbed into languages other than the original English (uploaded to YouTube in Spanish by channels Juan Ortiz and batfran95 and in Arabic by channel Arabic-Cartoon-HD), very little English material for the show can be found online today. The English intro can be found below, along with a small snippet of the episode "The Enforcer," uploaded to YouTube by Zorro's voice actor Michael J. Gough. No full episode in English has been found online at present. However, a DVD listing has surfaced on Amazon for a compilation of six episodes, seemingly in English and released in 2004. This is believed to be the only English DVD release the show ever received. Also, a Russian dub of the season 2 episode "The Ice Monster Cometh" still has an audible English vocal track underneath the Russian dialogue.
