The much loved, fictional story of Don Diego de la Vega as the hero of the people of Mexico has been the subject of many books, movies and numerous television series.
Zorro was finally turned into an animated cartoon series in 1981. In 1990, Zorro was made into another live action television program. Following that show, Zorro was once again made into another animated series in 1997.
In each series, Zorro is the hero of the people who fights crime from behind a mask, and after each victory, he scratches a "Z" at the scene which lets everyone, especially other villains, know that Zorro was there.
This 3rd of the animated series lasted two seasons with 26 episodes. Those episodes are now available on DVD.
