Description Tells how the Lone Ranger hooks up with Tonto. With Lenny Bruce doing all the voices, this animation of a Bruce routine begins with local folks upset at the Lone Ranger because he won't stay around to be thanked after a good deed. So, he stays and finds he likes hearing "Thank you mask man." When their attention starts to shift elsewhere, he shocks and disgusts the townspeople with a final request.

    "WHAT???? I'm not a Fag!!! But, I've heard a lot about it...wrote a few exposes....thought I'd try it out...just to see how bad it was...just once. I like what they do with Fags...Anyways, The punishment is quite correct...They throw them in jail with a whole lot of men...Ha ha ha....very clever!

    @wolvenmeck I had forgotten that it was shown with 'Bambi vs Godzilla.' Muchos Gracias for reminding me. For those who haven't seen it, check out the original B&W version on YouTube at watch?v=ZpBkc2jK-6w (there are many other versions but IMO you can't beat the original). It's even shorter than 'Thank you Masked Man' - 1:30. I first saw them together in a theater in the early 70's, preceding John Waters' "Pink Flamingos" starring Divine - what a mind blowing combo!

    I haven't seen that in years! Wow! Thanks for posting.
