The adventures of Ben Cartwright and his sons as they run and defend their ranch while helping the surrounding community.
One piece of footage was used often, of the main street in Virginia City. You'll notice in the lower left, a surrey with passengers, with a Chinese Man and an Indian talking over a jug, and in the lower right, two old prospectors with mules.
I'll swear you in. Do you?
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: I do.
Deputy Sheriff: You are.
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.
The opening and closing credits show a picture on the screen that corresponds with whatever credit is being given ("Music by" is accompanied by a man playing a violin, "Written by" has a Mark Twain-inspired writer type holding a book with "Bonanza" written on its cover, etc.)
