The Lone Ranger
In later episodes the opening narration ended with the catch phrase "Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear. “The Lone Ranger Rides Again” Episodes usually ended with one of the characters lamenting the fact that they never found out the hero's name only to be told, "Why, that was the Lone Ranger!" as he and Tonto ride away. The theme music was the "cavalry charge" finale of Gioacchino Rossini's William Tell Overture, now inseparably associated with the series, which also featured many other classical selections as incidental music including Wagner, Mendelssohn, Liszt, and Tchaikovsky. The Television series featured Gerald Mohr as the narrator.
The first 78 episodes were produced and broadcast for 78 consecutive weeks without any breaks or reruns. Then the entire 78 episodes were shown again, before any new episodes were produced.
The last new episode of the color series was broadcast June 6, 1957 and the series ended September 12, 1957
