“…everyone needs a hero, and for those in my generation, one of the first heroes we remember from television was Guy Williams.” – Leron Gubler, President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce

On August 2, 2001, actor guy Williams, best known for his portrayal of the legend Zorro in the segment of the same name in the Disney anthology series, was posthumously awarded a star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Through a dedicated grassroots effort, fans of Williams petitioned the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in 2000, which led to his induction. Over 200 people showed up for the ceremony, including members of Williams’ family, fans, and members of the press, with Williams’ son, Guy Williams Jr., accepting the star for his father.
