Dan Reid revealed he was the same from the LR in a 1947 of the GH show
A 1947 episode had Dan Reid reveal to his son their relationship to the illustrious man of the Old West.
I added the info on Tonto's horse, White Feller, and Scout's origin from the radio episodes "Four Day Ride" and "Border Dope Smuggling." I don't know the accuracy of the other information, about Silver returning from Wild Horse Canyon with Scout. I have not heard any such episode, but I haven't heard every episode, so I left it for someone else to decide. The story of Silver's origin is accurate, except the episode that aired September 9, 1938 was "Trouble at Fort Gardner," and it did not deal with Silver's origin. Michael.douglas.dean
I have a vague recollection from when I was very young about Silver returning with Scout. Perhaps that is why I was moved reading it just now.
"The Lone Ranger" has doubtless been parodied, spoofed, burlesqued, satirized (etc) hundreds of times. A few of the more-notable ones should be mentioned, particularly the classic Stan Freberg commercial in which The Lone Ranger and Tonto appear, played by Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels.
In the Tonto article, we find "ke-mo sah-bee" whereas here it's "quimo sabe".
Self-contradiction on LR's name
This article's "fictional character biography" section, first paragraph, states that the LR's name was John Ried, but the "Lone Ranger's name" section, first line, seems to refute that.
"one of six Texas Rangers massacred by the Cavendish Gang." Am I being picky or should this be changed to prevent the LR from being brought back from actual dead? Kdammers (talk) 10:05, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
- To adapt an emendation from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: "Mostly massacred"?—Jerome Kohl (talk) 21:24, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
"Leader" Of The Cavendish Gang?
I'm just putting this out there , but , at some point , wasn't their leader named "Butch Cavendish" ? Television , Animation , Mego Toy Line ? Anybody able to confirm this , or have I been riding the prairie without my hat on one time too many? Harvey J Satan (talk) 02:31, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
- I don't know about your headgear situation, but yes, he was named Butch on the first TV episode, and on radio, he returned for the 20th anniversary broadcast (persistent fellow). Clarityfiend (talk) 03:02, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
Rights to the Lone Ranger?
The Wrather Corporation owned the rights to The Lone Ranger characters, licensing permission to various movie, TV, and merchandising companies for specific productions/products. Did Disney get the Lone Ranger companies when it bought the company in 1989? When does it enter the public domain (since Dan Reid/Tonto went on air in 1953)? --Phil Wolff (talk) 02:15, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
The Donna Diana Overture wasn't part of the music for the Lone Ranger but was the introduction to Sergeant Preston of the Yukon and his dog King — Preceding unsigned comment added by Whammersley (talk • contribs) 13:30, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
LR called Kemo sabe?
- Anyone? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:52, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
- I'm afraid personal memory alone can't be used to add or verify Wikipedia content. Without a reliably sourced, published transcript (as books about radio shows and the like sometimes include) or other published, authoritative source, we can't really go further. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:17, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Found a one link:
I'm currently doing a copyedit of this article, and I saw the two sections Hi-Yo Silver! and Kemo Sabe. Do they really need their own section? They look like they should be merged somewhere. — Feitlebaum (talk) 16:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Lone Ranger's disguise
While copy-editing, I came across a section added here and deleted here, most likely because it was unsourced and out of context. Nonetheless, it is an intriguing description of how the Lone Ranger disguised himself.
- His favorite masquerade is that of an old geezer, a prospector in a checked shirt and hat with its front brim pushed up, He'd typically be slouched over, with a white wig, bushy white beard and a sharply cocked eye, speaking in Western slang.
