Little Joe Cartwright...

Sometimes we here at Infomaniac like to imagine what went on behind closed doors at the Ponderosa.

Don't you?

    1. I agree, Kabuki. Some things are better left to others imaginations.

      MR. DeVICE: Imaginations plural?

      Of course you have all those separate personalities, don’t you?

    2. WALLY & NORMA: Wally makes a good point.

      And there’s the fact that he was their houseboy with all that implies.

  3. Well, as long as the salad bar is kept clean, I assume maybe they had some salad, tossed of course.

    1. NORMA: Eugene?

      I’ve had to Google only to discover that Michael Landon’s real name was Eugene Maurice Orowitz.

      Is it any wonder he changed it?

    3. MISS SCARLET & JON: I’ve had to Google this show as it’s completely off my radar.

      Kid Curry and Hannibal Heyes?

      I thought you were talking about a rocker and a serial killer.

    4. Tut, the next thing you'll be saying is that you missed The Virginian as well...

  11. They didn't call them Hoss & Little Joe fer nuthin. I loved the Hooterville Trilogy: The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres and Petticoat Junction...then came the Rural Purge in the early 60s when CBS cancelled all of thembecause they wanted the advertiser's wet dream: younger urban viewer demographic.

    1. Bonanza made it from 1959 to 1973,14 seasons and 430 episodes, second longest running western series behind Gunsmoke but it too became a victim of the Rural Purge.

      Delete
    2. That purge included Don Messer’s Jubilee!

      1968 was the last season any new traditional Westerns debuted on television; by 1969, after pressure from parental advocacy groups who claimed Westerns were too violent for television, all three of the major networks ceased airing new Western series.

      I think we all know how that “too violent for television” thing turned out.

      Recently, I watched a “Rifleman” marathon. They can’t keep a good Western down when there are reruns to be watched.

      Delete
    3. I know right? Westerns are too violent?
      They weren't all shoot-em-up Peckinpah or Spaghetti Westerns. On TV shows there wan't even any blood? At the end of every episode the bad guys would spin around and die..but they sill have time to deliver a line or two about the poor choices they made.

      Delete
    4. DONN: The forces of good tended to triumph over evil in the TV western.

      Morality disintegrated in North American society around the time that TV westerns faded.

      Coincidence?

  12. save a horse (or a hoss), ride a cowboy....I am still wondering how Miss Kitty got her hairs all done up each and every day and all without a lady's maid! or did she have Thelma Ritter on retainer??

    1. TOPHER: And that red hair of hers.

      Did the carpet match the curtains?

  13. I am quite sure that all the hoss' munched away in order to keep the grass clean as a baby's bottom!

  16. This Is the Land Unknown to me. I know academically that there is a "cowboy" type/rolefigure/Ideal, whatever. But I have no clue how it invades everyday "culture" - I mean we are talking soap operas here (shoot me I am an European) - but more important, how this image is rooted in any ideas, how it is workable, reproducable, usable,abrufbar - how it works; cowboy fucking is a desire, fine - I just try to think of an entsprechende European or Asian figure ... is it f.e. the same as Samurai-fucking, hammering a knight? Maybe this cowboy idea incorporates a too specific idea of manhood, American-specifick.
