I can not wait to see how many of your readers ask:THE LAST OF THE WHOMWHOMS?I totally remember that show.
I never saw the show, just the trailers, and even so I feel the end of an era.Mary Anne in Kentucky
Oh, and Adam was my favorite. I loved when he sang!
Also totally remember that show!! Loved it! Major crush on Little Joe...So sad, all of them gone now.
Carla - I have a feeling most of my readers will know who the Cartwrights were.... Mary Anne in Kentucky - we watched it faithfully as kids (the Rancher trekked to his aunt's place, because she had electricity AND a television).Gail - and was so calm and dignified.Missicat - Little Joe was my favourite when I was a kid, but I grew to appreciate Adam when I was a little older! (And I always wanted Hoss to be my big brother!)
Awww Adam. Bonanza was the only western I ever liked as a kid. No doubt Michael Landon had much to do with that. Pernell Roberts too. Oh and big, cuddly Dan Blocker.. not to mention Pa.. Lorne Greene. sigh!
I don't remember ever watching Bonanza...And yet as soon as I think of it I hear the theme music in my head...So I suppose maybe I did catch some reruns way back when.
Hilary - I'm pretty sure Lorne Green had a lot to do with my mom watching that program! JavaChick - you young thang, you! It was on the Lonestar channel for quite awhile recently, and we watched a lot of it (the Rancher did, anyway).
Mary Anne got it right--the end of an era.Where have all the great Cowboy shows gone?Terrie
I has a sad now too. I enjoyed that program. Thankfully we can still enjoy watching it.
Dun-da-da-dun, da-da-dun, da-da-dun, DUN, DUN, DUNNNNNNN!!!Aww. So sad. :(
Awwww, I wish I could say "who?" but I'm not too young to remember Bonanza. :>) The ranch where they filmed Bonanza is at Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada - you can still go there and ride mountain bikes (if you like).Rest in peace Adam.
Whomwhoms...hahahI remember all of them.And the "Native American" who had braids. Is he still with us?
He was a favourite of mine. Time really has gone by. I used to never miss an episode of Bonanza, and the theme song rings loudly in my ear as I write this.
I used to work at Ponderosa Steakhouse, the east-of the-Mississippi version of the Bonanza Steakhouse, both founded by Hoss after his TV career. His competitive advantage was that his farms raised the steaks we served.I liked the show (plus Big Valley) as a kid and didn't mind the restaurant job while I was in college. Fond memories of all the Cartwrights and Trapper John, too.
May they all rest in peace.
dfTerrie - now that IS a good question! Reb - it was a good show! Marianne - you crack me up!Marste - yup! That's the tune that's stuck in my head!Conny - don't tell the Rancher - it just wouldn't be right to ride anything other than a horse there (at least, in HIS mind!) :)POD - I am not sure about that - I just know that all the males who were "Cartwrights" are no longer with us.Redbush - I have been having a hard time getting that song out of my head, too!Clare - that's cool about the restaurants! I had no idea.Messymimi - I hope so too.
I loved that show. I never could decide if I wanted to be a member of the family or someone's girlfriend. A friend of mine once met Hoss and said he was The Nicest Person.
kcinnova - I know - I always wanted to marry Little Joe so I could have Hoss and Adam as my big brothers. Sigh.
I kinda remember that show... was never big on Westerns. Still, sad to see the end of an era!
Crabby - it's definitely sad to see the end of an era!
Those were the days. I wonder if we can get reruns, too? Would be fun to revisit.
Cheryl - we watched it in reruns a couple of years ago, but haven't seen it recently.
Oh thanks, Marste, now I've got that tune stuck into my head too! Ack!
