Rango

Title Card - RANGO

ABC Network
1967
Comedy
30 Minutes

The misadventures of a bumbling Texas Ranger known as Rango (Tim Conway) stationed at Deep Wells Ranger Station in the Texas Territory of the 1870s. 

Rango's father was the commander of the Texas Rangers, and so his son he had job security. However, to keep the other rangers safe from his ineptness, Rango was assigned to a remote outpost where hopefully he wouldn't get into trouble or cause any harm.

Unfortunately, just as Rango arrived, bandits and outlaws began to return to the area and the only thing between the people of the region and the bad guys was, dare I say it?....Rango.

Tim Conway as RANGO

Rango's friends and companions included:

  • Guy Marks as Pink Cloud, Rango's cowardly Indian sidekick and scout who spoke better English than the White men.
  • Norman Alden as Captain Horton, the commander at the Deep Well Ranger Station. He would love to fire Rango, but he didn't want to get on the bad side of Rango's father.

Theme Song Lyrics
(sung by Frankie Laine)

From out of the west came an unknown vest
The gun of Rango, Rango, Rango

He wore a star, wore a Texas star
This man called Rango, Rango, Rango

From San Anton to the Rio Grande
Down mountain peaks or desert sands
Every outlaw feared the hand of danger
This Texas Ranger
Rango, Rango, Rango.
