The adventures of Ben Cartwright and his sons as they run and defend their ranch while helping the surrounding community.
According to David Dortort, Michael Landon grew difficult during the last five seasons the show ran: "Nearly every line, every scene, every set up . . . everything would halt for endless story conferences on the set . . . it got increasingly bitter toward the end."
Hey, Joe, do you know the difference between a table and an ottoman?
Joseph 'Little Joe' Cartwright: Sure I do.
Ben Cartwright: Then take your feet off the table!
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: He'll never learn to do that.
During the first season opening credits, the Cartwrights can be seen galloping on horses on a dirt road that contains an unmistakable set of tire tracks from the truck carrying the camera in front of them.
In the opening sequence, when the actors ride on their horses towards the camera and are introduced, the order in which they are introduced is never consistent - this was most likely done to prevent a single actor from becoming the "main" star of the show.
