Tooniversary: The Lone Ranger vs. the Deadly Glassman (1966)

The Lone Ranger rides again into action, this time taking on the "Deadly Glassman".

Cristal (Shep Menken, also the voice of Tonto) has stolen what he thinks is a priceless diamond, unaware that the Ranger (Michael Rye) replaced it with a glass replica. How ironic. Rye also voices Cristal's henchman, making this literally a 2-man show.

A commentator on YouTube said that Menken recycled his Clyde Crashcup voice (from The Alvin Show) for Cristal, but actually it was a variation on same.

Rating: B.
