Bonanza


Bonanza
Bonanza chronicles the weekly adventures of the Cartwright family, headed by wise, thrice-widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright (played by Lorne Greene). He has three sons, each by a different wife: the eldest is the urbane architect Adam Cartwright (played by Pernell Roberts) who built the ranch house; the second is the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his nickname: "Hoss" (played by Dan Blocker); and the youngest is the hotheaded and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe" (played by Michael Landon). The family's cook is the Chinese immigrant Hop Sing (played by Victor Sen Yung). Bonanza is considered an atypical western for its time, as the core of the storylines dealt with Ben and his three dissimilar sons, how they cared for one another, their neighbors and their land.

Genre: Action and Adventure, Western
