"The Lone Ranger Rides Again"[edit]

A one-hour color special "The Lone Ranger Rides Again" was produced to celebrate the Jack Wrather company's acquisition of the Lone Ranger franchise. This special retells the origin story of the Lone Ranger. It aired on Feb 12th 1955 to "celebrate the 22nd anniversary" of the Lone Ranger, and again on Feb 1, 1958 for the 25th anniversary.[citation needed]

Availability[edit]

In the United States the first 16 episodes from Season One are in the public domain. "A Message from Abe" (episode 204, Season Five) is also in the public domain. These 17 episodes are available in numerous combinations from many distributors.

Rhino Entertainment released a 4-disk set of the first 19 episodes of Season Five (Episodes 183-201) in 2003.

On November 11, 2008, Classic Media and Genius Products released a 13-disc "75th Anniversary Collector's Edition" DVD set. The set contains all 78 episodes from Seasons One and Two. Bonus features include an episode of Lassie with an appearance by the Lone Ranger and episodes of the 1960s animated series. The package also includes an 88-page booklet, complete episode guide, and a comic book reprint, among other things.

As of October 2011, the first 53 episodes are available on Netflix Streaming.

Starting in 2013, the series is broadcast on COZI TV. Affiliates of the network air the series at different times, if at all, so viewers have to refer to local listings for time and channel.


Coming Out On June 4th, 2013: The Lone Ranger: The Collector's Edition will have all 221 episodes of the series on it.
