Premise: The masked man and Tonto rode from radio to TV with a `hearty heigh-ho Silver, away!', accompanied by Rossini's stirring `William Tell Overture.' ABC's first ratings hit and one of early TV's most popular series, it told of the lone survivor of an ambush of Texas Rangers, who was found by the Indian Tonto.
