The Lone Ranger is an American radio and television show created by George W. Trendle and developed by Fran Striker.

The title character is a masked Texas Ranger in the American Old West, originally played by George Seaton (radio), but more famously by Clayton Moore (television), who gallops about righting injustices with the aid of his clever, laconic Native American companion Tonto, played by (amongst others) John Todd, Roland Parker, and (in the television series) Jay Silverheels. Tonto usually referred to the Lone Ranger as his "quimo sabe," meaning "trusty scout" or "trusted friend."[3] Departing on his white horse Silver, the Ranger would shout "Hi-yo, Silver, away!" The horse would then gallop toward the setting sun, followed by someone asking, "Who was that masked man, anyway?" Someone else would respond, "Why, he's the Lone Ranger." The sayings, as well as the theme music from the William Tell Overture, are indelibly stamped in the memories of millions of Americans (and Britons) who came of age during the decades of the show's initial popularity or viewed the television series run nearly continuously for past fifty years. Reruns of the Lone Ranger as portrayed by Clayton Moore were still being transmitted as of August 2010, sixty-one years after their production and initial broadcast. The character has become an icon of American culture.[4]
