Product Description

With his sword, whip and trusty steed Tornado, Zorro continued to fight the forces of evil in the second season of Walt Disney's legendary classic. The final 39 swashbuckling episodes saw even more children dressing up as the sly fox Zorro in Spanish and making the sign of the Z The second season aired from October 9, 1958, through July 2, 1959, and is presented here -- newly restored and remastered in its original black-and-white format. To add even more thrills to this six-disc set, we've included two rarely seen one-hour specials shown on Walt Disney's anthology series WALT DISNEY PRESENTS -- ZORRO: THE POSTPONED WEDDING and ZORRO: AULD AQUAINTANCE. You'll meet Guy Williams in a profile of the actor who became an overnight star in the role he was born to play. And you'll meet his stunt double, Buddy Van Horn. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come.

Time to catch some more Z's! Just how hot was Zorro as it galloped into its second season? Check out "A Trip to the Archives," one of the bonus features included on this collectible set that's a must-own for every TV-loving boomer. Disney historian Leonard Maltin and Guy Williams Jr. peruse a treasure trove of licensed Zorro merchandise, including the expected (lunchboxes, mask and whip, vinyl wallets) to the unexpected (neckties and roller skates!). And how hot was Guy Williams, so dashing as the masked avenger Zorro? The same kids who donned coonskin caps to play Davy Crockett were carving Z's into their school desks. Annette Funicello, America's teen sweetheart, had a crush on him, prompting Walt Disney to cast her in one of season 2's story arcs as a present for her 16th birthday. Funicello stars as a pueblo visitor searching for her father, whom no one seems to know, but someone is trying to scare her out of town. In addition to being rescued by Zorro, she gets to sing a song, "The Lonely Guitar." Several character actors beloved by vintage-TV buffs appear this season, including Lee Van Cleef, Tige Andrews (Captain Greer on The Mod Squad), Robert Vaughn, Richard Deacon, and Ricardo Montalban. Season 2 tinkers a bit with the series' successful formula. Beginning with the episode "The Gay Caballero," a new opening composed of scenes for that week's episode replaced the rousing theme song that helped put Zorro on the map. There were more, and shorter, story arcs. Zorro was even, briefly, given a love interest (Jolene Brand as Anna Maria Verdugo). But the accent remains on adventure with spectacularly staged fights (another bonus feature is an interview with Guy Williams's stuntman, Buddy Van Horn) and daring rescues. This set contains two Zorro rarities, near-hour-long adventures that were originally broadcast in 1961 on Walt Disney Presents and have never been available on home video: "The Postponed Wedding," featuring Funicello, and "Auld Acquaintance," costarring Montalban and Ross Martin (The Wild Wild West). Zorro has aged well thanks to its historical setting in 1820s California. There is nothing like it on television, and now all those former Zorro-wannabes can introduce their own children (and grandchildren) to the timeless pleasures of Zorro, which delivers on its promise of "never-to-be-forgotten thrills." --Donald Liebenson

The Complete Second Season is the definitive version that Disney Zorro fans have waited years for. Covering the 39 episodes that comprise season #2 (1958-1959), this limited edition (and numbered) 6-disc set of 30,000 includes a Certificate of Authenticity, a collectible pin (very handsome showing a silver sword with a shadow of Zorro & his horse superimposed on top), as well as a black-and-white photo postcard showing Guy Williams in his Zorro costume. A booklet outlining the contents of the set can also be found here. The set comes handsomely encased in a black metal tin, fitting of this B&W series where the hero wears an all-black costume.

A 3:29 intro by Leonard Maltin introduces the episodes and gives a brief overview of the series and these particular episodes along with the extras on these discs. The remastering is evident on these episodes. The picture is clear and so is the sound; naturally, with the way it was originally recording, a digital surround experience is not possible, but the Dolby Digital recording is crisp, clear, and the score sounds better than it has in years. And no...there are no colorized versions here. Just the genuine black and white originals.

Besides the 39 episodes (starting with "Welcome to Monterey", original air date of 10/9/1958 and finishing with #39 "Finders Keepers", original air date of 6/2/1959), there is a 6th disc of bonus material. Here you will find 2 hour long episodes:

1. "Zorro: The Postponed Wedding," original air date of 1/1/1961, from Walt's anthology TV series "Walt Disney Presents." Clocking in at 49:04, this episode features Annette Funicello, who is beginning to mature into a very pretty young lady.

With Walt Disney's "Zorro" popular television series ending in 1959 after 78-episodes, for its 50th year Anniversary, Walt Disney is giving the classic action/comedy series special treatment with the "Walt Disney Treasures" release of "ZORRO - The Complete First Season (1957-1958) and "ZORRO - The Complete Second Season (1958-1959).

For the second season, this marks the tenth Walt Disney Treasures release in which a limited amount of DVD copies were printed (in this case - 30,000 were printed) and where the majority of the "Walt Disney Treasures" releases were animated releases, these two Zorro releases will be the first to receive an all-black tin case release.

This release contains the 39 episodes from the second season on five DVD discs and each episode has been digitally remastered. Also, included are "Zoro: The Postponed Wedding" which aired January 1, 1961 on Walt's anthology TV series "Walt Disney Presents", "Zoro: Auld Acquaintance" aired on April 2, 1961 on "Walt Disney Presents", "Behind the Mask" about the life of Guy Williams featuring interviews with surviving cast and crew members, an author and his son Guy Williams Jr. and "A Trip to the Archives" featuring Leonard Maltin and Guy Williams Jr. visiting the Walt Disney Archives. Included with each release is a certificate of authenticity signed by Roy E. Disney and Leonard Maltin (who personally selected the rare offerings in this set), a publicity still of Zorro and a Zorro pin (featuring the memorable silhouette of Zorro and Tornado the horse) and a booklet with episode listings for the second season and more.

"Zorro" was the first major series that film man Walt Disney was very enthusiastic about.

So finally the release is happening that Disney kept leading us on saying would not happen, so guess what kids? You want Zorro you have to buy it from the Disney Movie Club. Disney touted Zorro being a "Disney Club Exclusive", so like an idiot I believed them, and went and bought each of the 5 dvd sets that comprised season one at $20-$30 a pop from the club, then they decided to release the full season into a boxed set of the same discs for cheaper, again still only to the Movie club chump members like me. These versions were in the horrible colorization they did for the Disney Channel some years ago and had not a single extra, but Disney still led on this was all they would have available for Zorro as it "wasn't a big seller" according the folks I called at the Disney Club. Now lookee here lo and behold somehow magically Disney seems to think there might be more milk to the cow of this franchise and is willing to squeeze it for all its worth. Part of me is very happy with these releases, but part of me wants to curse Disney's dark soul in their duplicity and dirty double dealings. This is not the way to treat loyal customers: lie, lie and lie some more if it makes more money. I love old Disney entertainment, but man do I hate the modern company that dishes it out.

All of my "old man ranting" aside, it is nice that finally Zorro is getting the release it deserves, I just wish...beg... hope.. plead that they be more honest in the dealings they have with fans. I seriously feel used AGAIN, I really don't feel like I can ever trust them again after all the times I have and have been let down (like the edits in the Disneyland USA set when it was CLEARLY advertised in print ads as being "original and uncut".
