A successful spin-off series, Green Hornet, was also aired and toys and comics were licensed to use the Lone Ranger concept. In 1949 the show was brought to ABC television and lasted for eight years - a very long time in television terms. During the tv run, Trendle sold the rights to the Lone Ranger, probably at the height of the character's stock. It could be said that the Lone Ranger saved George Trendle's WXYZ radio station just in time. This is far too simplistic. Trendle was a good businessman who knew when to invest and when to sell out. He had to balance this ability with his obvious stubborn ways. It was this very stubbornness that drove him to go it alone and make a success of producing his own shows and it was his business sense that brought about his ruthless cost cutting (a trait he never shook off even in more affluent times). He had a vision and nobody was going to knock him off his horse. He was a great leader who had a knack of getting the best out of his people at least cost. If the Lone Ranger saved him then it should never be forgotten that it was George Trendle who created his own savior.
