to oil man and film producer Jack Wrather in 1954 for $3 million. After Wrather died in 1984, his widow, Bonita Granville, sold the Wrather Productions properties to Southbrook International Television Co. in 1985. Broadway Video acquired the rights in 1994. Classic Media acquired the rights in 2000. DreamWorks Animation acquired Classic Media in 2012 and renamed the division DreamWorks Classics, which was acquired by NBCUniversal in 2016 for $3. 8 billion. Its Universal Pictures unit presently has the rights to the Lone Ranger. The story is that the man who played the Lone Ranger was killed in an accident on the night that the show was supposed to go on the air. The producers had to replace him with someone, but didn�t want to announce it because they didn�t want kids to know that their hero had been killed. So, at the last minute, they hurriedly rewrote the episode with the Ranger injured and unable to speak.
