Rango (TV series)

Rango is an American Western sitcom starring comedian Tim Conway which was broadcast in the United States on the ABC television network in 1967 and lasted for only 17 episodes.

In Rango, Conway played an inept Texas Ranger who had been assigned to the quietest post the Rangers had, Deep Wells, so as to keep him from creating unnecessary trouble. The Rangers apparently had wanted him removed from the service altogether but were prevented from doing so by the fact that his father was their commander. But he seemed to bring his own trouble with him, as crime suddenly returned to a place that had seen very little of it the prior 20 years.

Also appearing in Rango was the American Indian character Pink Cloud ( Guy Marks), an overly-assimilated Indian who was very fond of the ways of the whites and whose command of the English language was generally better than theirs. (Example: "Rango say him return when sun high over teepee. By that, I presume he meant that he would be back by noon.")

The theme song co-written by Earle Hagen and sung by Frankie Laine. The series ran for less than a year.

TV Guide ranked the series number 47 on its TV Guide's 50 Worst Shows of All Time list in 2002.
