I don't recall seeing "20,000 Leagues under the Sea" as a series. I recall "Voyage to the bottom of the Sea" which starred Richard Basehart and David Hedison.

From Wikipedia; "While details differ, the basic story of the origin of the Lone Ranger is the same in most versions of the franchise.[9] Six Texas Rangers are ambushed by a band of outlaws led by Bartholomew "Butch" Cavendish. Later, a Native American named Tonto stumbles on the scene and recognizes the lone survivor, John Francis Reid, as the man who had saved his life some time in the past. He nurses Reid back to health. The two men dig six graves for Reid's comrades, so that Cavendish will think there were no survivors. Among them is Reid's brother, Captain Daniel Steven Reid, who is the Captain of the Texas Rangers. John Reid fashions a black Domino mask using material from his brother's vest to conceal his identity. Even after the Cavendish gang is brought to justice, Reid continues to fight evil under the guise of the Lone Ranger."

I really didn't think I had watched that much TV (especially since we didn't have one for a while). Apparently I was wrong- I can still remeber some of the characters and the theme music, not to mention some of the Mad Magazine takeoff names. Here are some more: Lassie The Munsters Rawhide Wagon Train Bonanza Huckleberry Hound

I was wondering if this was a Far Side cartoon -- I couldn't make out the name at the bottom, but it's certainly that style

Gary Larson's "The Far Side" had some classic frames (can't really call them comic strips).
