Tonto hung out with the Lone Ranger, not Zorro
Which reminds me of that Far Side cartoon of an elderly Lone Ranger finding out an uncomfortable secret when he reads a language dictionary that defines “kemosabe” as “horse’s ass.”
It's been a really long time but if I'm remembering right, Zorro's sidekick was Bernard and he was deaf/mute. His name may as well have been "Jackass" though. These old shows had a really infuriating habit of making the hero look good by making his sidekick look like a fool. Looking back, that has the same stink to it as minstrel shows and blackface (declaring one person "right" by declaring another "wrong"). Entertainment really says something about society, hearts and minds, etc.
I'm getting too deep into a stupid show I used to catch on TV decades ago though, lol. I'm about 70% certain his sidekick was Bernard.
seems its Bernardo. also a native american
I was close, lol. I don't remember him being Native American but, like I said, really long time ago. I just remembered he's deaf and mute.
Do you mean Lone Ranger?
Sorry yes i meant the lone ranger. Ever since i was a kid i confused the 2. Apparently i still do this...
That’s crazy. I wonder if the writers knew.
Was funnier with the mistake
