104 The Lone Ranger
First watched : Uncertain
The Lone Ranger cartoon series was one of umpteen incarnations of the Western superhero originally based on a character from a Zane Grey novel. Made in the late sixties , partly in Britain , it roamed well outside the genre with excursions into science fiction* . Tonto and Kemo Sabe had a regular villain to contend with in the shape of the dwarf Tiny Tom. My recollections are rather hazy but I think I liked it.
* The series was said to owe a heavy debt to a CBS programme The Wild Wild West which I don't think was shown in the UK.
