Beginning in '57, Henry Calvin portrayed Sgt. Garcia on Disney's Zorro TV series. He occasionally shared scenes with Gene Sheldon, who played Don Diego's mute servant Bernardo. Calvin and Sheldon sort of looked like the Laurel & Hardy team and their interactions often seemed like an homage to the famed comedy duo's act. I have no idea if that was Disney's original intent, but the pair obviously clicked and were subsequently cast in two Disney feature films, Toby Tyler and Babes in Toyland as well as several made-for-TV Zorro episodes as part of Disney's weekly show (after the regular series had ended).

BTW, Calvin frequently sang on the Zorro series. His rich baritone voice was quite stunning on the show (as I recall).
