LONE RANGER TV SERIES

THE LONE RANGER (1949-1957)
JUVENILE – ABC

Starring: Clayton Moore, Jay Silverheels

The fictional story line maintains that all of a patrol of six Texas Rangers are massacred, except for one. The "lone" survivor thereafter disguises himself with a black mask and travels with Tonto throughout Texas and the American West to assist those challenged by the lawless elements. A silver mine supplies The Lone Ranger with the name of his horse as well as the funds and bullets required to finance his wandering life-style.

So let's talk about the story behind this mysterious masked man. His mask is what separated him from all the other TV cowboys. He was the guy who always saved the day and left the grateful townfolk asking "Who was that masked man?"

Well, this guy was part of a posse of Texas Rangers who were chasing after some desperadoes when they were ambushed in a canyon and all were left for dead. But what the bad guys didn't know was that one of those Rangers, John Reid, survived and crawled off safely to a nearby waterhole!

In short order along came a friendly Indian named Tonto. Because John Reid had once helped him, Tonto nursed him back to health and vowed to help this "lone ranger" (yep! that's how he came by his name) avenge the deaths of the other 5 posse members and any other wrongs that needed avenging.

John Reid became "Kemo Sabe" (which means "Trusty Scout") to Tonto and, of course, the "Lone Ranger" to everyone else.

Not wanting the desperadoes to know that one of the Rangers had survived their ambush, John Reid "buried" himself along with the other 5; one of them was his brother Dan. Then, with Tonto's help, he tamed the beautiful white stallion that he named "Silver", put on the mask, got him some pretty snazzy looking duds, too, and set out to get the guys who killed all of his friends (which they did by finally cornering the outlaw Butch Cavendish).

They were now a team, along with their faithful horses "Silver" and "Scout", and went around righting wrongs in the old West!

Every week the Lone Ranger would save the day for a rancher, a prospector, or maybe the school marm and, after being properly thanked by all, he would ride off calling out the familiar "Hi-Yo Silver, away!"
