Thanks to my recent revisit of Maverick, I'm now interested in reconnecting with The Lone Ranger TV series, which used to air at lunchtime for several summers in my childhood. Being a bit of a completist, I'd love to seek out the entire 200+ episodes, but the only set that I can find that is complete is an OOP Collector's Edition that goes for princely sums on eBay!

There is a DVD set that contains the first two seasons of Clayton Moore, but there seem to be many DVD releases of the series. Does anybody know if the rest of the series--including the colour episodes and Moore's temporary replacement--are available on disc as well, or could point me to a site that would have the info? Poring over Amazon's listings for info is very frustrating! ;)

The only set I know of is long OOP - as you've discovered:


I passed on it because of the packaging thinking a non-book version would be issued. It never was.

I had to settle for these 2 releases:

First 2 seasons:


Same material in newer, less expensive, packaging from Universal instead of Classic Media:


21 episodes from Season 5:

All the episodes are up at YouTube. It appears to be a legal verified upload. The "About" page is signed.. "Classic Media". These are the same time-sped episodes that are on the Complete Collector's Collection set.


All the B&W episodes used the color opening in B&W. None of the episodes have the second part of the opening, "...with his faithful Indian companion, Tonto...".

Different uploader, showing the full 'Tonto' B&W opening.

I lucked out and got the deluxe set on sale . Luckily , all my discs played ok and are now stored in plastic cases. The packaging itself is very nice, but not good for the discs.
If you can find one at a reasonable price, I’d say go for it.
But it’s odd that the later seasons remain out of print. The Lone Ranger was such an iconic characters!

I purchased the 30-disc Collector's Edition back in 2018 for $150 on eBay which was too much for edited episodes. I'd rather own a complete Roy Rogers collection.

I'm hoping for a re-release of the 1980 Filmation animated series The New Adventures of the Lone Ranger, which has also been out of print for a long while. I see Classic TV Shop has a blu ray available but it seems to be a bootleg production.

Yeah that's a fan created website. Not official in the slightest.
I figured as much. Never bought any of those shady fan-created releases, but for some properties they seem to be the only option. So maybe I'll cave in one day.

A quality Roy Rogers set would be awesome. Do the masters still exist?
I’ve heard Dusty Rogers let them deteriorate-.any one know?
