I have been a fan of the Lone Ranger for as long as I can remember. I used to watch re-runs of the TV show as a kid. I enjoyed watching Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. I’ve seen some of the Lone Ranger movies, and listened to many of the old radio shows.
Thrill to the audio adventures of The Lone Ranger in The Town With No Guns
One of the coolest things about the radio show is that occasionally the Lone Ranger and Tonto would team-up with famous figures from the days of the wild west. These team-ups featured everyone from Annie Oakley to Teddy Roosevelt.
Recently, I saw an ad on Twitter that had the Lone Ranger team-up with the characters from another TV show that I used to watch as a kid – The Brady Bunch.
This has to be one of the most unique Lone Ranger team-ups where the Lone Ranger and Tonto meet the Brady Bunch kids in this episode of The Brady Kids entitled Long Gone Silver.

In the September issue of Videogaming Illustrated, the magazine decided to invite two special guests to submit editorials on how they felt about the growing popularity of video games.
The two guests were none other than the actors who played two legendary television heroes. Clayton Moore who portrayed the Lone Ranger from 1949 until 1957 for 169 episodes and Adam West who of course played Batman from 1966 until 1968 for 120 episodes. So what did these two think about the all-consuming fervor of arcade and home consoles?
It might surprise you to learn they were more than okay with the medium and what it stood for. I also think it’s rather clear from the editorials below that the roles they made famous…their successes had to do with how much of their own ideology they brought to the characters.
