Can you name all of these Bonanza characters?

Puttin' the "ponder" in Ponderosa.

Welcome to the Ponderosa! The Cartwrights kindly welcome strangers to their ranch. The folks in nearby Virginia City are good folk, too. 

That's why we always love spending time with Bonanza. It feels like the characters are family. Extended family, at least.

So, think you can name these familiar faces? Good luck!

Watch Bonanza on MeTV!

Monday - Saturday at 2 PM

*available in most MeTV markets
  1. We all know and love Hoss. But what is his given name?
  2. He has a sweet name.
  3. This sheriff has a name you might associate with breakfast.
  4. Speaking of food, what is the name of the Cartwrights' cook?
  5. The dashing Guy Williams of 'Lost in Space' plays this Cartwright.
  6. As the badge proclaims, this here is the deputy. But what is his name?
  7. What is the name of this feller? The young man, not the horse.
  8. Ben Cartwright adopts this redhead.
  9. Recognize this excited man?
  10. Finally, these three men all played a character named…?

I think it was in one of the ep's. that Guy Williams guested as "Will Cartwright" (possibly S5/E29, "The Compañeros", which is not shown on MeTV for some reason), I seem to recall Adam telling Will that Adam's horse's name was either "Lancelot" or "Galahad." Can anyone corroborate this?

After getting 12/12 on the TV Stars/Characters quiz, I come over to the Bonanza quiz (piece of cake!) & get 5/10. Hmmm. Must be time to start dinner. ;-)

Dwayne "King" Pride (N.C.I.S. New Orleans) is the first person I think of for Louisiana.
