  1. Tonto

    Tonto is a fictional character, the American Indian companion of The Lone Ranger, a popular American Western character created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker. Tonto has appeared in radio and television series and other presentations of the characters' adventures righting wrongs in 19th century western America. Tonto made his first appearance on the twelfth episode of the radio show. Though he became well known as the Lone Ranger's friend, Tonto was originally created just so the Lone Ranger would have someone with whom to talk. Throughout the radio run, with only a few exceptions, Tonto was played by American actor John Todd. The character was portrayed on television by Jay Silverheels. This was the highest-rated television program on the ABC network in the early 1950s and its first true "hit."
