Based on the stories by Johnston McCulley, which first appeared in All-Story Weekly in 1919, the series chronicles the adventures of a heroic freedom fighter (El Zorro: "The Fox") struggling to defend the independence of the people of 19th-century California from their Spanish rulers. Like the Hollywood feature film Mask of Zorro (1999), ZtM is set a generation later, with Zorro's son taking up the mantle and rapier. The idea has previous history in animation-Hayao Miyazaki planned a Kaiketsu Zorro series in 1982 but it never appeared. Other animated adventures of Zorro include the 1981 Filmation series and a 2000 Warner Bros. remake. Zorori the Magnificent (1993, Kaiketsu no Zorori) is an unrelated 30-minute feature directed by Toshio Takeuchi, which featured two popular episodes from a Zorro-pastiche children's book by Miho Mizushima and Yutaka Hara, with animals in all the main roles. Zorro, of course, is played by a fox.

This Zorori returned as the hero of a 52-episode series on Nagoya TV in 2004, directed by Hiroshi Nishikiori. Zorori, accompanied by his twin boar assistants, and with a self-proclaimed desire to become the Prince of Mischief, came back once more in his own 53-minute anime movie Kaiketsu Zorori: The Race for the Mysterious Treasure (Nazo no O-Takara no Daisakusen, 2006).
