The Lone Ranger      Sun Feb 26, 2006 2:17 am Reply with quote

How many seasons did the Lone Ranger run? 8 season or 5 seasons?
Were there reruns in 51-52/53-54/55-56? I know Clayton didn't appear in all 221 episodes. A TV book says John Hart appeared in about 25 episodes. Does that make the total 246 episodes?

I like your sight. Not too places have entire episodes. Will you be adding more shows and episodes?

thanks barry

The Lone Ranger ran for 5 seasons with 221 unique episodes. There were reruns for several years after the series ended.

John Hart played the Lone Ranger for the entire season three (1952-1953; 52 episodes). He often joked about being called, "The other Lone Ranger". His episodes are counted in the 221 total figure.

I also have seen other sources that say there were more seasons and more episodes but they're simply confusing the reruns and syndication with the original run of the series.

Thanks for your post!

I was surprised to find out it went of the air in the 50's. I was born in 1956 and have fond memories of watching the show/had no idea they had to be re-runs.
Neat to find this t.v. information site.

I remember hearing that after the first season or two the powers that be were about to cancel this series, but were persuaded to give it another chance based on the content of a single letter arguing in the show's behalf. Cany anyone confirm this?

I've never heard that. I suppose that anything is possible but networks are typically driven purely by the profit motive and it's doubtful that a single letter from the President or even the Pope would get them to continue a show that they felt would continue losing money.

On the other hand, networks are run by humans and the right appeal could possibly win the day, no matter how unlikely.
