Cowboys, gold, the wild frontier – sounds like a winner for a TV show, and the proof was in the pudding (or the goldmines of the wild, wild west. The iconic TV show “Bonanza” came out to eventually steal the hearts of TV viewers far and wide, and it didn’t even matter if you were a kid or a senior citizen. Something about watching the Cartwrights running the Ponderosa Ranch and getting into adventures seemed to grab people in a way that would make you scratch your head given the sitcom typically was about a more “traditional” family with a focus on, well, family!
Nevertheless, the show lasted quite a while – through an alarming 14 seasons -- until eventually, progress took hold and more of those “urban” shows we know of, like “All in the Family,” started making marks. Still to this day, though, we have plenty of “Bonanza” freaks out there. Shows back in that day carried with them loyal fan bases – hence such classics like “Star Trek” and “Green Acres.” But “Bonanza”? Are you the top fan in the world for this show? Prove it! Take this test to see just how well you know the show even beyond that of the characters and episodes!
