    Quote:In a nutshell, the Lone Ranger began as a book series, that was later a radio program, movies and was one of the large number of Westerns produced for early television. The Lone Ranger always wore a mask and his true identity was a secret, and one of the main themes of the show was that people assumed the Ranger was evil, but he was always, always, fighting for good. Tonto was his faithful sidekick. He was a Potowatomie (not sure that spelling is right) Indian. Tonto rode a Paint horse named Scout while the Lone Ranger's white horse was named Silver.

    Clayton Moore is the actor most frequently remembered in the role of The Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels co-starred as Tonto.

    The Lone Ranger and Tonto got trapped in a box canyon by hostile savages:
    Lone Ranger: " Looks like the end of the trail for us, Tonto"
    Tonto: " What do you mean we, white man?"
