  • Disney followed up its famous Zorro TV series with this short lived Zorro comedy starring Henry Darrow. Zorro is becoming too old to carry on his legacy, so he begins to tutor his son. Together the two battle the evil Paco Pico.moreless

    Zorro and Son lasted only five episodes. Although it was by no means a perfect show, it was certainly more funny than a number of sitcoms which seemed to have lasted for many years. Certainly the show was flawed. Mediocre directing often flubbed good jokes and the actors were not all learned in comedic timing, but the scripts were largely good.



    The best episode is probably A Fistful of Pesos in which Paco Pico disguises himself as Zorro in order to make Zorro look bad. The weakest episode was probably the pilot episode. It was a good example of how good jokes backfired because of poor timing and/or directing.



    At only five episodes it is hard to judge just how good or bad the show might have been. I certainly admit liking them, but can't help feel that they lacked the quality that makes a comedy really funny. I give it extra stars for the original plot, and flawed or not, it is a better way to spend 30 minutes than an episode of 3's Company or any one of the dozens of sitcoms out today.moreless
