[show]Uniquely, "The Lone Ranger," as televised on ABC, offered four seasons of a new episode each week for at least a year without a rerun. From 1949-51 the first 78 episodes were aired and then rerun in the same order. For the subsequent seasons beginning on Sept. 1952, Sept. 1954 and Sept. 1956, the same format was followed with 52 consecutive new episodes aired and then rerun in the following 12-month period. The young viewers would have to wait "until the same time next year", often coinciding with their school year or summer vacation, to see a rerun of a favorite or "missed" episode.
- John Hart, who replaced Clayton Moore for 52 episodes, actually appeared opposite Moore's Ranger in two episodes before donning the mask himself during Moore's absence.
- Tonto's horse is called Scout.
