    After the series ended, Clayton Moore began making public appearances as the Lone Ranger. Jack Wrather filed suit against Moore claiming ownership of the character. In 1979, Wrather won the suit so Moore wore wraparound Foster Grant sunglasses as a substitute for the mask. Moore later won a countersuit allowing him to resume wearing his costume.

    Going back to the earlier days of "The Lone Ranger" on radio , as well as the 2 movie serials The Lone Ranger (1938) and The Lone Ranger Rides Again (1939), the TV series relied heavily on classical music to fit the many action sequences. In addition to the series' theme of Gioachino Rossini's "William Tell Overture". other classical pieces featured included "The Flying Dutchman" by Richard Wagner as well as "The Preludes" by Franz Liszt, who himself reportedly led quite an "action filled" life, for his time. During 1956-57, which was to become the last season of new episodes, the usual musical score supporting the action scenes was replaced by contemporary and less familiar compositions which did little to enhance the action. This was at least a contributing factory for the series' sudden decline in popularity.

John Hart was hired to replace him, but the change did not sit well with audiences. When George W. Trendle sold the rights for the series to Jack Wrather in 1954, Wrather immediately re-hired Moore.
