Topic: TV Shows
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4027 - Okay... It is the time of year that the major TV networks are showing the season or series finales of their TV shows. I have already blogged about My Top Five Comic Book Based TV Shows for the 2014 / 2015 Season, as well as other TV shows I've been watching the past twelve months.
Today I'm blogging about a TV series that I wasn't able to watch all of the episodes when I was a kid, even though there were only two seasons of the TV show.
The TV show I'm currently watching is the 1957 Zorro show. Just recently the TV station, COZI, ran the three episodes where Annette Funicello guest starred. I had missed it when it was first shown, and never saw the three episodes back to back, so it was a real treat for me! You see, I had a crush on Annette when I was younger
Anyways, the three episodes were run in the second season of the show. Here is the link to all of the Zorro episodes. The Annette episodes were number 60, 61 & 62, starting with 'The Missing Father'.
I found that viewing the colorized versions of the TV show kept the episodes fresh, and it was really neat to see Annette at sixteen years of age starring in the episodes. This was in February of 1959 when the episodes were first aired. I would have been only six years old at the time.
I've been watching the Zorro series for a while on COZI, it runs two episodes each day at 10 am & 10:30 am. The episodes appear to run in story arcs of about five episodes each, with an occasional single story episode in between at times.
I find watching the TV show in color to be a fun experience, and suggest you catch the show while it is still being aired. The TV show only ran for two seasons, even though it did well in the ratings.
Here's a few links you might want to check out:

Preview of the Dell Four Color #1037 - Based on the three episodes
Again, I would recommend checking this series out, and for your younger kids, the TV series has been 'colorized' back in gthe early 1990s, for those that don't like viewing black & white TV.
