The adventures of Ben Cartwright and his sons as they run and defend their ranch while helping the surrounding community.
Every time one of the Cartwrights became seriously involved with a woman, she died from a disease, was killed, or left with someone else.
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.
The story of Bonanza starts in 1859 Nevada but the clothing worn by the cast is invariably 20th century . For example belt loops did not appear on men's trousers and jeans until many decades later.
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.)
