The Lone Ranger (1966)

it seems like the 60s were really the last decade to get the Ranger right.  every recent remake/version has truly sucked sewer water.  the intro is cool, and a nice version of the popular live action version, which was still airing in syndication everywhere.

this is from the cartoon which owed quite a bit to the then popular (and still excellent) "Wild Wild West" series.  heck, the Ranger even gets a miniature villain to battle named "Tiny Tom".  Tonto also got his own segment in the middle of the show which was also pretty cool. 

I'm sure in whatever version finally does get brought back to the screen, big or small, the Ranger and Tonto won't be friends at all.  seems like that can't happen these days.
