Hi-yo, Silver! The fantastic folks over at both The Lone Ranger Fan Club
and the Clayton Moore Lone Ranger Page
have posted a lot of information about Classic Media's upcoming release of The Lone Ranger - 75th Anniversary Collector's Edition
. This is a terrific-looking DVD set with Season 1 and Season 2 compiled together in one package. And besides the 78 episodes (1900- minutes) of show that this brings you, there are also 3 bonus episodes from the '60s cartoon series, a classic episode of Lassie
which features The Lone Ranger, an original Lone Ranger
radio show broadcast from 1950, an 88-page Commemorative Book, a complete episode guide, reprints of rare comic books and photos, and limited edition collectibles as well. Wow!
The folks at the above links (notably the fan club) have additional details and pictures for this release. The package, shown below, will come with either 12 discs or 13 discs, depending on which picture you look at in the fan club's image gallery (the cover letter says "13," but the sell sheet and the images of the packages all show "12"). The cost, per the cover letter scan, will be $119.93 SRP. The release date is November 11th
. Our thanks to readers Bill Murphy and Nick Nelson for tipping us off about this info!
