Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Cartwright's thousand-square-mile Ponderosa Ranch is located near Virginia City, Nevada, site of the Comstock Silver Lode, during and after the Civil War. Each of the sons was born to a different wife of Ben's; with none of the mothers still alive. Join Ben (Lorne Greene), Adam (Pernell Roberts), Hoss (Dan Blocker) and Little Joe (Michael Landon) as they rewrite the book on the western genre. These were the days where family values and the fight for justice were backed up by six-guns that always had right on their side.

Included in this set are 31 memorable episodes of this 14 season television phenomenon. Also included in this 4-DVD set is a brand new, never-before-seen documentary chronicling the fascinating legacy of this landmark TV show.



EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTARY Brand New featurette produced exclusively for this DVD collection!

For 14 years, the Cartwrights were the premier western family on American television and have been immensely popular on cable networks such as TV Land, ION (formerly PAX), Family Channel, and the Hallmark Channel.

Since all the episodes of BONANZA in this cut-rate release are now available officially from CBSHE (CBS Home Entertainment) and Paramount distribution (and "cut" is the right word, as the original theme song is missing from all episodes and the picture quality is sub-par), there's absolutely no reason to buy this unauthorized set! (This is NOT a "Best of" collection. It's the exact same limited number of episodes from the first and second seasons that bootleggers have been floating around for years.) Buy instead -- if you haven't already -- the "Real Deal," with digitally remastered and restored picture and sound (from the original 35 mm film elements), the ORIGINAL music plus tons of extras not available elsewhere. 'nuf said. For starters, buy Bonanza: The Complete First Season and Bonanza: The Complete Second Season and Bonanza: The Complete Third Season. Plus they're discounted on AMAZON right now so you get great "bang" for your "buck"!

Took a chance (found for $5 in Menards' bargain bin) but useless at ANY price; refund, here we come.

I see another reviewer praises Mill Creek Entertainment (distributor) for their work in compiling such bargain sets and explains the legality (evidently these 32 episodes are now in public domain - unlike the missing music, still copyright protected). That was helpful info, for at least they're not illegal ... yet ... no interest in hanging onto these pebbly, edited vids that lack even the famous Bonanza theme music.

Missing music and multi-generation loss were not disclosed in product packaging, so it didn't even occur to me they would lack the original music. Wow!

By the looks of the front cover you might be led to believe the episodes also have good sound and pic quality. Not so! Most of the set has a grainy picture and sound quality is inferior. If you don't like the "Trasferred from vhs to disc look" do not buy it. There is only 1 disc that has decent picture and sound however you do get 32 episodes and it's dirt cheap so it's a trade off in my opinion.

I have loved this series since I was a child! When I first remember hearing of this series, it was one that my parents watched on TV every Sunday evening. My brother and I were sent to bed first, though. :>( The box and video labeling are great! The duplication process produced a quality product. All of the menu items work. I just wish there were more episodes to purchase. If there were, I would purchase them. When I get tired of these, I will tuck the DVD away and bring it out again in six months or so. Then I'll enjoy watching them all over again.

Read all the 1 & 2 star reviews before buying. They are all correct. The picture quality is subpar. The theme song is some old 50's western guitar song. Some of the transitions between scenes & acts overlap or jump around. The best comment I've read is "if you're happy with VHS to DVD quality, spend the $4.98". I suggest you won't be.

Bonanza: Adventures With The Cartwrights is a re-release DVD set of The Best Of Bonanza, put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, an entertainment company that puts out all sorts of great releases at affordable prices. Adventures With The Cartwrights features all 31 episodes of Bonanza (The last 17 episodes of Season 1 and first 14 episodes of Season 2) that are public domain. Due to music copyright, these episodes have a generic Western tune used in the opening/conclusion instead of the classic Bonanza theme. In addition, these public domain episodes have decent picture quality at best and may have some very slight edits compared to the original broadcast versions. This release also features some bonus material, which includes an episode of Wagon Train and a Bonanza documentary. (The original Mill Creek release “The Best Of Bonanza” has three episodes of Wagon Train and no documentary.)

For five bucks, this is a very affordable and recommended collection of classic Bonanza episodes and an ideal way to get all 31 public domain episodes in one case. I found the episodes to be completely watchable/enjoyable with good SD picture/sound quality. I've watched them on a regular SD tube TV and a HDTV with no problems whatsoever. Each disc is kept in a sleeve which is stacked inside the case, which helps preserve the center of the discs. This is a great purchase for the casual Bonanza fan or someone looking for an affordable deal on 20+ hours of classic Western television.

If you are interested in seeing these episodes in their original broadcast format, be sure to check out the Paramount releases, which have the original theme music and more. Either way you watch it, Bonanza is a true American classic and one not to be missed!

First of all this is a good Bonanza dvd set. I deducted one star because it's not perfect. The picture is sort of grainy and it's not the original theme song which I knew beforehand. However, for the price and it being 32 episodes, it's a great price and sort of a "why not" purchase. As you long as you know those things, it's a good set. I can see if you are hardcore fan and wanting the original season sets but for a casual watcher, etc, this is great.
