The Range Rider (Jock Mahoney) went around the West doing good deeds. The Range Rider also starred Dick Jones as Dick West. The 6'4" Mahoney was a former stunt man whose athletic skills became legendary as he performed his own, often difficult stunts on the show.  Mahoney went on to become Yancy Derringer and Dick Jones to be Buffalo Bill Jr.

During 1951 thru 1953, 76 TV Episodes were made.  Range Rider was produced by the pioneer of on screen cowboys (Gene Autry) via his company, "Flying A Productions".

Opening Narrative of The TV Program:  [Background Singers] "Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play"   [Announcer Cuts In] "And who could be more at home on the range than THE RANGE RIDER with his thrilling adventures of the great outdoors; his exciting experiences rivaling those of Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, Buffalo Bill, and other pioneers of this wonderful country of ours .... and Dick West, All-American Boy."

[See Theme Song Below]

 

The Range Rider Comic Books were based upon the western television series, The Range Rider. Oddly, this title began just as the series was ending on television. Except for the first couple of issues, the entirety of the run occurs after the show was cancelled.

 

Jock Mahoney (1919 – 1989)  attended the University of Iowa, where he excelled in football, basketball, and swimming, among other sports. As with many young men of the era, he enlisted in the Marines and became a fighter pilot and an instructor. After World War II, Mahoney made his way to Hollywood, where he quickly found work as a stuntman for such western stars as Charles Starrett and Randolph Scott. 

Jock Mahoney worked as a stuntman and Charles Starrett's costar in Starrett's 'Durango Kid' series of films from 1947 until 1952. And in 1951, he accepted the part of The Range Rider, a syndicated 76-episode western TV series produced by Gene Autry that ran through 1953.
In the mid 1950s, Mahoney left Columbia and signed with Universal, making scores of western films at that studio. He also starred in another western TV series, Yancy Derrigner, during the 1959-59 season. In 1961, signed with Sy Weintraub on to replace Gordon Scott as Tarzan. This casting made Mahoney the twelfth series Tarzan and was the oldest actor ever first cast as Tarzan, at the age of 42.
