There are few Americans who have not heard of the Texas Rangers. Since the dawn of television (and before that, on the radio) the media chronicled their exploits in a variety of shows.
Here are some you might remember:
The Lone Ranger: The only survivor of a massacred Ranger patrol, he and his Indian companion Tonto fought lawlessness from 1949 until 1957.
Tales of the Texas Rangers: The series ran from 1955 to 1958, and some of its shows were reenactments of actual Texas Ranger cases.
Laredo: The series aired from 1965 to 1967 and told the story of three Texas Rangers who battled rustlers and bank robbers in the Mexican border town of Laredo.
Walker, Texas Ranger: The show revolved around Sgt. Cordell Walker, a Texas Ranger played by Chuck Norris, who uses his martial arts skills to enforce the law in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The series ran from 1993 to 2001.
