What did you think of Zorro the very first time you saw him? I watched some episodes last night, and at first all I could see him as was Will from the Bonanza episode, "Return to Honor." But he was so comical, so wonderfully handsome here! :grin His clothes were the most elaborate I've seen yet, but somehow, when his father is present, I just had to say to my mom yesterday while watching: "Since that's Will's father, does that make him Ben's brother, John?" :laughing
Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?

I first saw Zorro when I was five or six and I remember I thought he was the most exciting character ever. I would go around pretending to be him. At that time I hadn't heard of Bonanza...I didn't see Bonanza until I was 22. So I tend to see Will and think "What is Zorro doing in Bonanza?"

That's so funny! I watched Bonanza first, before Zorro, so I think exactly the opposite! When I watch Zorro, I always wonder if the Cartwrights knew about his secret identity! :laughing

I immedately thought Wow! Will Cartwright is so Handsome! I hope they keep him on the show. Then I googled him & saw he played Zorro! I fell in Love with him all over again. Zorro was my first TV actor crush next to Batman. There's something about men wearing black. Probably why I Love Adam :drool

Zorro was one of my favorites growing up! I too wish it would have worked out for the Will character.
