Editorial Reviews

"RETURN WITH US TO THE THRILLING DAYS OF YESTERYEAR! The most famous question of the Old West is ""Who was that masked man?"" The hero of the dusty plains is the Lone Ranger, clad in a black mask and carrying a gun loaded with silver bullets. Riding with Tonto, his faithful Indian sidekick, the Lone Ranger fights injustice on his galloping horse Silver, leaving behind a cloud of dust as he lets loose the hearty cry of ""Hi Yo Silver!""

Clad all in black, and raising his sword in the name of justice, he is Zorro, the Latin hero of the South! Secretly nobleman Don Diego, Zorro defends the poor and downtrodden from tyranny and cruelty, with the help of his trusty companion Miguel! His calling card is the letter "Z," a mark he leaves behind with three slashes of his sword to remind evildoers that he is protecting the land. Spotlighting the work of the legendary Filmation Studios, this volume features eleven thrilling adventures of THE LONE RANGER, and six heart-racing tales of ZORRO! With a stellar voice cast that includes William Conrad and Henry Darrow, this pair of action heroes fight for justice on DVD for the first time ever, alongside swashbuckling special features!

So, yeah, besides the superheroes, there were plenty of other Saturday morning cartoon heroes in my kidhood. To name a few, there was Blackstar and Flash Gordon, then the Defenders of the Earth and the Mighty Orbots, and Thundarr the Barbarian. Hell, I even liked Captain Caveman. And then there were the straight out icons. In 1980 Filmation produced The Tarzan/Lone Ranger Adventure Hour, which a season later changed to The Tarzan/Lone Ranger/Zorro Adventure Hour with the addition of the swashbuckling Old Californian bandit. So, yes, you best believe, back in the day, I was waking up early on them Saturday mornings to tune in to CBS and thus get my cartoon on.

I never got to see the 1960's Lone Ranger cartoon which preceded this one, but I definitely caught the live action Clayton Moore episodes. As a kid, even as much as I enjoyed Clayton Moore, it wasn't even close when it came to preference. The Filmation version was a cartoon, and that just made it more splendid and oh-so-appealing to a kid's eyes. The Lone Ranger show also peppered in historical figures into its episodes, from female journalist Nellie Bly ("The Great Balloon Race") to President Grant ("The President Plot") to Samuel Clemens ("The Abduction of Tom Sawyer"). So you got tricked into learning something. Verrrry devious.

Nowadays, the Lone Ranger might be a bit too straight-laced for my cynical taste. But, back then, oboy, mister, he rocked hard! Even though the Lone Ranger wielded his blazing guns with righteous fury, he never shot to kill (and that went beyond the cartoon show). On his trusty white stallion Silver and with his Indian friend Tonto, he patrolled the wild West, serving up his own brand of justice and living by his strict moral code, a silver bullet his calling card.

In the late 1970's and early 1980's, Filmation so busy with animation shows like Superman, the Archies, Flash Gordon, Fat Albert, Aquaman (all on DVD), Batman, Tarzan (not on DVD), The Secret of Isis, Jason of Star Command, Ark II (all of DVD) and many others.

I enjoy watching the Lone Ranger and Zorro hour when I was in college, it ran in 1980-1981. Now these episodes are on DVD, bring me back to the glory days of Saturday animation. The animation was better than most today.

From the moment you hear the William Tell overture, you are transported to a bygone era. The dialog of this cartoon is played out more like a old fashion old time radio show. William Conrad (credited as J. Darnoc), the voice of Radio's Matt Dillion on Gunsmoke, did the voice of the Lone Ranger. His booming voice had a character and a power. he vocally created the voice of the masked man and you will believe it.

The episodes of the Lone Ranger is part historic and part western lore. At emd of each episode of Ranger and Zorro is a 30 historical insight.

Zorro was the only time Filmation relied on outsourcing on a cartoon.The company created its animated Zorro series. It was animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsha of Japan. The storyboards and graphics however, were made by Filmation themselves.However other than a few gaffs, you will never notice.

Note this is not Disney's version of Zorro. This cartoon had a mostly latina cast for Zorro, first time in TV history even for a cartoon. Henry Darrow did the vocals for Zorro/Don Diego. Don Diamond , who was Reyes from the original Disney versonof Zorro, voices Sergeant Gonzales.
This is also told in a radio show like style

Note this is the first volume of Lone Ranger/zorro, the final volume is expected later in 2008.

As a kid, I can remember loving this cartoon. It came on as the Tarzan/Lone Ranger/Zoro adventure hour. What I don't remember is the Lone Ranger stories being as hokey as they are. Some of them are so corny, they make me laugh. Nor do I remember the Zorro animation being anime. Still overall, it's a nice collection. I wish there were more Zorro stories and that Tarzan had been included. Regardless, the animation is still pretty sharp and would hold its own against any of its modern contemporaries.
