Theme song lyrics

"When daggers are pointed at innocent hearts

And muskets are ready to fire

When tyrants ride high and govern with fear

As the forces of evil conspire

Then from out of the night a hero must rise

With courage that even a mask won't disguise

They turn to . . . the man called Zorro

One who's larger than life and defender of all

Is this man who the people acclaim

He's the one who strikes back for the poor and oppressed

A hero . . . whose name is Zorro

His name is Zorro "

Production notes

  • Episode 1, the theme song is sung by a man to a different title sequence. From episode 2 the theme is sung by a woman.
  • The bridle and breastplate worn by Toronado in the Alain Delon film Zorro 1975 is identical to the one worn worn by Toronado in the TV Zorro (1990) and by Chico, The Queens horse, in the syndicated TV series Queen of Swords.

Both TV series were filmed in Spain. Zorro, at studios outside Madrid in 1990 and Queen of Swords at the Texas Hollywood Studios, Southern Spain in 2000.

VHS

Two tapes of episodes from the 90's Zorro series were released on home video in the United States in 1996. The first tape contains Parts 1-4 of "The Legend Begins" from the first season, and the second tape contains the final four episodes from the fourth season under the name "A Conspiracy of Blood." On each tape, the four episodes are placed together as a 90 minute movie. The videos each one contains at least one scene which was not aired in the regular episodes. Most of the Zorro video releases around the world in the mid 90's had issues with picture quality.

DVD releases

The series is not available on English DVD; such a release is not known, but the rights were held with Fox Home Entertainment. On January, 19, 2010, Zorro Productions, Inc. announced that it had acquired the rights to the series and would be shopping around for a distribution deal at 2010 NAPTE. All DVDs of this series that are available in English as originally aired are bootlegs. Two separate DVD boxed sets are available in France, but the episodes are dubbed in French and subtitled.

In 2009, the German company Kinowelt Home Entertainment released the complete first season of the series, dubbed in German.
