The Lone Ranger's Peace Patrol was a program designed to get children to buy Savings Stamps, low-cost stamps (25 cents to a dollar in value) that could be traded in for a $25 United States Savings Bond when they reached a total of $16.75. This episode centers on a national contest in which public schools compete to sell stamps, and Timmy is the captain of the school's team. Of course there are complications, including the theft of the money box, but in the end Timmy's school is one of the winners in the contest, the Lone Ranger and Silver visit the school in person, and Lassie is made the second animal member of the Peace Patrol, just after Silver. The episode is notable for the crossover meeting of two children's television icons.
