Lorne Greene objected to this, pointing out that as the area's largest timber and livestock producer, the family should be less clannish.
The producers agreed with this observation and changed the Cartwrights to be more amiable. Though not familiar stars in , the cast quickly became favorites of the first television generation.
The order of billing at the beginning of the broadcast appeared to be shuffled randomly each week, with no relation whatsoever to the current episode featured that week.
The main cast of actors portraying Cartwrights is listed here in the order of their characters' ages, followed by an array of recurring supporting players:.
Early in the show's history, he recalls each of his late wives in flashback episodes. A standard practice with most westerns was to introduce some romance but avoid matrimony.
Few media cowboys had on-screen wives. Any time one of the Cartwrights seriously courted a woman, she died from a malady, was abruptly slain, or left with someone else.
Greene appeared in all but fourteen Bonanza episodes. Greene was 44 years old at the beginning of the series while Pernell Roberts and Dan Blocker, who portrayed two of his sons, were both 31, only thirteen years younger.
Pernell Roberts played eldest son Adam, an architectural engineer with a university education. Adam built the impressive ranch house. Despite the show's success, Roberts departed the series after the —65 season episodes and returned to stage productions.
During season five Adam falls for a widow with a young daughter, while making Will Cartwright a central figure. It was Landon, not Roberts, who objected to the infusion of any new Cartwrights.
In mid , the series producers considered inviting Roberts back in the wake of Dan Blocker's death: "One suggestion was to return Pernell Roberts, who had played another Cartwright son when Bonanza first premiered on NBC fourteen years ago.
We only considered that briefly, [producer Richard Collins says] Some people felt it was a logical step—the oldest son returning at a time of family need—but most of us didn't think it would work.
Dan Blocker was 6 feet 4 inches and pounds 1. To satisfy young Adam, Inger and Ben agree to try the nickname Hoss and "see which one sticks. According to producer David Dortort: "Over the years he gave me the least amount of trouble.
In May , Blocker died suddenly from a post-operative pulmonary embolism following surgery to remove his gall bladder.
The producers felt nobody else could continue the role. It was the first time a TV show's producers chose to kill off a young major male character though it was done twice previously with young female leads—in on Make Room For Daddy , and again in with The Real McCoys.
Although "big and lovable", Blocker was also tough. During the shooting of one episode, Blocker's horse stumbled and fell, throwing Blocker and breaking his collarbone.
Blocker got up and the bone was actually protruding from his skin. The crew wanted to call an ambulance but Blocker refused and stuck the bone back in place himself and resumed filming.
At the end of the day he was convinced to go to the hospital where they set the broken bone and gave him strict instructions, no riding for six weeks.
According to Landon, evidently Blocker's horse forgot what it was like to carry the big man during his convalescence because the first time that Blocker swung up into the saddle on his return, the horse collapsed under his weight and the cast and crew collapsed in fits of laughter.
The role of "Little Joe" was given to Michael Landon. He portrayed the youngest Cartwright son, whose mother Felicia in the pilot, and later changed to Marie was of French Creole descent.
Landon began to develop his skills in writing and directing Bonanza episodes, starting with "The Gamble.
Beginning in , a foundation was being laid to include another "son", as Pernell Roberts was displeased with his character. The character departed in that same episode, but left an opportunity for a return if needed.
This character's paternity is open to debate. After Ben consoles Marie, the two bond and marry. They choose to honor "Big Joe" by calling their son "Little Joe".
Veteran character actor Ray Teal essayed the role of Sheriff Roy Coffee on 98 episodes from to His longest-running role was as Sheriff Roy Coffee.
He had also played a sheriff in the Billy Wilder film Ace in the Hole Teal was a bit-part player in western films for several years before landing a substantial role in Northwest Passage starring Spencer Tracy.
Notable film roles include playing one of the judges in Judgment at Nuremberg with Spencer Tracy, and an indulgent bar owner to Marlon Brando 's motorcycle gang in The Wild One , which was the second of three times that Teal appeared with Brando, having done so already as a drunk in Brando's debut in The Men and later in Brando's only directorial effort, One-Eyed Jacks , as a bartender.
Sheriff Coffee was occasionally the focus of a plot as in the episode "No Less a Man" broadcast March 15, A gang of thieves has been terrorizing towns around Virginia City and the town council wants to replace Coffee, whom they consider over-the-hill, with a younger sheriff before the gang hits town, not realizing that they'd been spared earlier because the gang's leader was wary of Coffee's longevity and only acquiesced to rob the Virginia City bank after extreme pressure from other gang members.
Coffee ends up showing the town that youth and a fast gun don't replace experience. Guy Williams was slated in , the year that Bonanza hit 1 in the ratings, to replace Pernell Roberts upon Roberts' departure, enabling the series to preserve the four-Cartwright format for the run of the series.
His character, Ben's nephew Will Cartwright, was introduced and was the lead character in five episodes, receiving "Starring" billing after the four original rotating Cartwrights during his second appearance going forward, but Roberts changed his mind later and decided to stay for one more season, whereupon Williams found himself pushed out of the part; it was rumored that Michael Landon and Lorne Greene felt threatened by the studio initiating a precedent of successfully replacing one heroic leading man Cartwright with a new one, particularly in view of Williams' popularity with viewers.
Williams had previously portrayed the titular character in Walt Disney 's Zorro television series, and went on to play the lead in Lost in Space , a science fiction television series, after the role in Bonanza ended.
After graduating from the University of Cincinnati , David Canary was offered a left-end position with the Denver Broncos ,  but pursued acting and singing.
In , he joined the cast as "Candy" Canaday, a plucky Army brat turned cowboy,  who became the Cartwrights' confidant, ranch foreman and timber vessel captain.
Dortort was impressed by Canary's talent, but the character vanished in September , after Canary had a contract dispute. He returned two seasons later after co-star Dan Blocker's death, reportedly having been approached by Landon.
Canary played the character on a total of 93 episodes. Chinese American actor Victor Sen Yung played the Cartwrights' happy-go-lucky cook, whose blood pressure rose when the family came late for dinner.
Cast here as the faithful domestic, the comedy relief character had little to do beyond chores. He once used martial arts to assail a towering family foe.
As a semi-regular cast member, Sen Yung was only paid per episode. After 14 years, he was widely known, but making far less than his Ponderosa peers.
Bonanza series creator David Dortort told the Archive of American Television that the "Hop Sing" character generated massive fandom - "Victor was just absolutely delightful.
He loved the part; he loved doing it. In fact, he began to develop fans, to the extent that I wrote him in as the feature part in a number of shows.
After Canary's departure in mid, and aware of the show's aging demographic, the writers sought a fresh outlet for Ben's fatherly advice.
Vogel played the red-haired orphan of a roving rainmaker, whom Ben takes in and adopts later in a episode, called "A Home for Jamie.
During the final season, in —73, Tim Matheson portrayed Griff King, a parolee who tries to reform his life as a worker at the Ponderosa Ranch under Ben Cartwright's tutelage.
Following Canary's departure, Frizzell's character accompanied Jamie Hunter to the Ponderosa and became the Cartwright's foreman. Bonanza ' s initial ratings were respectable, often coming in behind Mason but ahead of the ABC lineup.
Ironically, executives considered canceling the show before its premiere because of its high cost. NBC kept it because Bonanza was one of the first series to be filmed and broadcast in color , including scenes of picturesque Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
The new time slot caused Bonanza to soar in the ratings, and it eventually reached number one by , an honor it would keep until when it was seriously challenged by the socially daring variety show , The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on CBS.
By , Bonanza was the first series to appear in the Top Five list for nine consecutive seasons a record that would stand for many years and thus established itself as the most consistent strong-performing hit television series of the s.
Bonanza remained high on the Nielsen ratings until , when it finally fell out of the Top Ten. After the series was canceled in , the syndicated reruns reverted to the Bonanza name.
From the third season on, the Cartwrights and nearly every other recurring character on the show wore the same clothing in almost every episode.
The reason for this is twofold: it made duplication of wardrobe easier for stunt doubles Hal Burton, Bob Miles, Bill Clark, Lyle Heisler, Ray Mazy and it cut the cost of refilming action shots such as riding clips in-between scenes , as previously shot stock footage could be reused.
Below is a survey of costumes employed:. It was not unusual for Little Joe Cartwright and Candy Canaday to appear shirtless in various scenes involving manual labor.
In , Blocker began wearing a toupee on the series, as he was approaching age 40 and his hair loss was becoming more evident.
Landon was the only original cast member who was wig-free throughout the series, as even Sen Yung wore an attached rattail- queue.
Bonanza features a memorable theme song by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans that was orchestrated by David Rose and arranged by Billy May for the television series.
The Bonanza theme song famously opens with a blazing Ponderosa map and saddlebound Cartwrights. The melodic intro, emulating galloping horses, is one of the most recognized television scores.

So ist z. Little Joe meist in einer grünen Jacke zu sehen. Dieses Prinzip wurde bis zum Ende der Serie beibehalten und erlaubte, dass man bestimmte wiederkehrende Sequenzen, beispielsweise Ritte entlang eines Flusslaufs oder ähnliche Standardszenen mit den Cartwrights, nur einmal zu drehen brauchte und sie dann bei Bedarf in späteren Folgen einfach kopieren konnte.
Reine Landschaftsaufnahmen von Bergen und Seen wurden auch spiegelverkehrt wiederverwendet, um eine andere Gegend vorzutäuschen.
