Can you name the 5 main characters? To be honest, I can't. And the names of the actors who played them? - I can only do 2 without doing a search.

Lorne Green, Pernell Roberts played Ben and Adam. Michael Landon was Little Joe. Can't think of the actor who portrayed Hoss and have absolutely no idea about Hop Sing.

You're right Observer. Later in the series, perhaps to increase viewers, another half brother was introduced. I think his character name was Candy but have no idea who the actor was......no wait a minute. I'm getting confused with Big Valley!!

While we wait for those answers - what was the spin-off - or maybe it wasn't really - starring Michael Landon that was another classic hit?

Yeah - pretty easy one, right?

I can't name any of the characters - other than "Pa". Can anyone else?

Remembered that the character of Hoss in Bonanza was played by Dan Blocker.

In "House", the youngest daughter's nickname was sprout, and the bratty daughter of the storekeepers I think was Becky. That's about all I can come up with on that series.
