Default Sure, I remember it...

...it was on Fridays at 9pm(et) in early 1967 [replacing half of "THE MILTON BERLE SHOW", his unsuccessful attempt to star in a "contemporary" comedy/variety series; "THE PHYLLIS DILLER SHOW", formerly "THE PRUITTS OF SOUTHAMPTON", filled the other half-hour]. Aaron Spelling, who never had much success producing a sitcom, co-produced it {through "Thomas/Spelling Productions"** with Conway's production company, "Tim-Kel". It was about a bumbling Texas Ranger in the Old West who gets the job done {and catches the bad guys** despite his klutziness, with an "Indian" friend (Guy Marks).

I remember reading Tim's recollection on when ABC cancelled "RANGO" after 17 episodes. He claimed an ABC executive came to him and said, "Don't do this show anymore ". Not "You're being cancelled", or "Sorry, Conway, that's the way it goes", just...."Don't do this show anymore". He certainly has a sense of humor about his past failures in fronting his own series- his license plate reads, "13WKS".

YouTube used to have one episode posted [with commercials], but I haven't seen it in a long time.

sure, I also remember it on ABC (the network that had carried his previous series the year before, "McHALES NAVY").
Recently I saw an episode on tv4u.com for the first time since it first aired. It was funny, but not as funny as I remember.

Not a good show. There's a reason second bananas should stay that way (Tim Conway, MacLean Stevenson, etc.). Smore Entertainment was actually looking to release this a few years ago but the music costs make it unworkable.
