Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Taka (1967)

You have probably noticed that the producers of the 1966 Lone Ranger series gave Tonto (Shep Menken) an eagle as a sidekick of his own, as if he needed it. Anyway, "Taka" stars in his own short, with cameos by Tonto and the Ranger (Michael Rye).

Rye doubles as Nakoni, the Native American scout accompanying the hunting party. Apparently, he's not from Tonto's tribe, else he'd have recognized Taka right away. Have to say this was highly amusing.

Rating: A.
