The New Adventures of Zorro was the third animated television series to feature the character of Zorro. The show was on the air for one season, in 1997.
The show starred Michael Gough as Zorro/Diego Dela Vega, with Earl Boen as Captain Montecero, the lead villain. Pat Fraley played Diego's father Don Alejandro Dela Vega and Tony Pope was the bumbling Sergeant Garcia who was popularized by Henry Calvin on the 1950s Disney live-action series. This series added elements of science fiction and fantasy to the Zorro legend, with the hero battling supervillains who used steampunk gadgets or magic. Zorro employed similar equipment designed by his mute manservant Bernardo, and was aided by the magic of the Native American wise woman Grey Owl.
