Subject: BONANZA: In Your Own Words

The Cartwrights in your own words - your thoughts in 400 words or less!

Think of BONANZA, your favorite Cartwright, BONANZA actor. What do they mean to you and how has BONANZA impacted your life?

How has BONANZA come to find a place in your heart? In celebration of sixty years of this Western classic, we ask you to share your personal stories. Tell us how your father bought the first color television set on your block to see the magnificence of Lake Tahoe in Living Color. Recall how you fell in love with Little Joe’s horse (then Little Joe), admired the wisdom of Adam, the compassion of Hoss and the fatherly advice of Ben. Did you see the U.S.A. in a Chevrolet? Meet Lorne Greene and tour the Ponderosa Caravan at your state fair? Pose for a photo with Mike Landon at a telethon? Catch David Canary at a rodeo? Are you a young BONANZA believer who caught the series for the first time recently?

Share what BONANZA means to you and how a landmark television series has impacted your life and inspired the way you live. These are your written thoughts and photographic souvenirs. This, dear BONANZA admirer, is your story, your unique way of saying, Happy Anniversary, BONANZA.

We will include as many of your written thoughts as possible —along with your name and accompanying photograph(s) or illustrations — in a special commemorative booklet to be published for the BONANZA 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee. We know that you may have a lot to say, but space is limited so please try for 400 words or less. If you feel you need more space, you’re still welcome to submit. However please remember we reserve the right to edit the content to fit our space requirements, and by sending in your reflections, you give us permission to edit for space and clarity as necessary.

Please send your contribution to louise@ponderosa2.com. Contributions must be received no later than December 1, 2018. All entries received will be acknowledged.

This invitation is open to everyone – whether or not you are able to attend BONANZA’s 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee – we would love to hear from you.

Happy writing!

I read that Candy left the show because the Producers wouldn't give him starring status even after four years on the show. I also read that Michael Landon backed him up, but the Producers still said no. If that's true, they blew it. I liked the Candy character more than Adam, the character he basically replaced on Bonanza. Even after all these years I still watch the show on MeTV and TVLand. I've seen every episode three times over and it's still fun to watch. My favorite character was Hoss, without a doubt. Dan Blocker was a former school teacher turned actor. He played college football in his home state of Texas and had a Master's degree in Education. And he was a Sgt. in the US Army before that. He accomplished a great deal in a short time, he died at 43.
