Note: This is not a professional pattern! The eye holes are too small on purpose. My 9 year old was adamant that they not be too big, so we started small and then trimmed them to fit each child. I made this pattern for my 9 year old’s head, and it fit my 6 year old as well, and was a little big on my 4 year old, BUT my 9 year old and 4 year old sons have really small heads! Poor Owen is not even on the growth chart for head size (and he’s just barely on it for weight!). I’m guessing that this pattern will fit an average 4-8 year old.
Johnny Depp plays Tonto in the 2013 Lone Ranger film . In this version, Tonto is a Comanche who accidentally caused his tribe's massacre as a boy. The tragedy changes Tonto and he adopts distinctive face-paint and a headdress with a dead crow on it as a sort of penance. Eventually he becomes the Lone Ranger's mentor and partner. The film is ambguous about whether Tonto has magical insghts and powers or is just insane, though it leans strongly to the former. Johnny Depp's makeup and costuming was inspired by Kirby Sattler's painting I am Crow .
The radio series inspired a spinoff called The Green Hornet, which depicts the son of the Lone Ranger's nephew Dan,  Britt Reid , originally played by Al Hodge , who in contemporary times, fights crime with a similar secret identity and a sidekick , Kato . In the Green Hornet comic book series published by NOW Comics , the Lone Ranger makes a cameo appearance by being in a portrait in the Reid home. Contrary to most visual media depictions, and acknowledged by developer/original script writer Ron Fortier to be the result of legal complications,  his mask covers all of his face, as it did in the two serials from Republic Pictures (see below). However, rights to The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet have been acquired by separate owners and the familial link has been ignored in the Western character's various incarnations. The Lone Ranger – Green Hornet connection is part of Philip José Farmer 's Wold Newton Universe , which connects disparate fictional characters.
