Tornado - Black stallion on the Old California western adventure ZORRO/ABC/1957-59.

Zorro Riding Tornado the Horse

Tornado (pronounced: "tor-NAH-do") was owned by Don Diego De La Vega (Guy Williams) whose alias was Zorro, a masked outlaw who galloped through the 1820s Spanish Colony of Monterey, California avenging those wronged by the tyrannical governor.

During the 1958 season Zorro acquired a white stallion called Phantom. This horse was owned by a Lt. Santos, killed by bandits on a road outside Monterey. Trying to follow the horse Don Diego said, "It was like trying to catch the wind."
