If you remember ‘El LLanero Solitario & Toro’ (The Lone Ranger and Tonto)

Like some of you, I grew up watching “The Lone Ranger” on TV. In my case, it was the Spanish dubbed version of the show before we came to the U.S. Up here, his friend was Tonto. In Spanish, it was “Toro.” It did not take me long to figure that one out.

As I learned, the show started on the radio on this day in 1933, although I don’t know if there was a Spanish version for the radio. However, I do recall my father talking about “comics” in Spanish.. In 2010, I heard some of those old radio shows and they were great.

Eventually, radio became TV and “The Lone Ranger” was seen by millions of kids like me.

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk).
