Rango is an American Western situation comedy starring comedian Tim Conway, which was broadcast in the United States on the ABC television network in 1967 and lasted 17 episodes. 
Rango is an inept, bumbling Texas Ranger in the Old West    who has been assigned to the supply room at the quietest post the Rangers have, Deep Wells Ranger Station, so as to keep him from creating unnecessary trouble.  He seems to bring his own trouble with him, however, as after his arrival, crime suddenly returns to the Deep Wells area, a place that had seen very little of it during the previous 20 years. 
Rango's assistant in the supply room is Pink Cloud,   an overly assimilated American Indian who is very fond of the ways of the white people and prefers reading a book in a comfortable bed to living the traditional life of a Plains Indian.  Pink Cloud's command of the English language is generally better than those of the white people around him;  for example, in one episode, he says, "Rango say him return when sun high over teepee. By that, I presume he meant that he would be back by noon." 
Also at the Deep Wells Ranger Station is Captain Horton, Rango's long-suffering company commander.   Horton wants to transfer Rango out of Deep Wells, but cannot because Rango's father is the head of the Texas Rangers. 
Tim Conway previously had starred in McHale's Navy from 1962 to 1966 and in two theatrical films spun off from the series, McHale's Navy in 1964 and McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force in 1965. Rango was the first of several unsuccessful attempts at giving Conway a starring role in a situation comedy of his own.
Rango′s theme song, "Rango", was co-written by Earle Hagen and Ben Raleigh and sung by Frankie Laine.   
TV Guide ranked the series number 47 on its "TV Guide′s 50 Worst Shows of All Time" list in 2002. 
Rango premiered on ABC on January 13, 1967.   It lasted only half a season, and its 17th and final new episode aired on May 5, 1967.  Reruns of Rango then aired during its regular time slot until September 1, 1967.   The show was broadcast at 9:00 pm on Friday throughout its run.
