BONANZA: The Adam Years: Season Three.

Episode 1: The Smiler (September 24, 1961)


This is basically a Hoss episode. When Hoss stands up for a lady who is being hassled by a man, it then turns into a fight when the man draws a gun. In the struggle that ensues the gun goes off, and the man dies.

Whole family feature.


The story centers around Hoss. Having shot a man who was showing too much attention to a woman in the street, Hoss is drawn into a lot of trouble by the dead man's brother. Having turned up as the funeral of his brother is about to take place, the man proceeds to outwardly accept what has happened. However, he slowly makes it look like Hoss has a problem with him too, now.

Notable Adam Moments:

Although this is a Hoss episode, Adam does appear in several scenes.

He is in the background of the funeral scene in town.

Adam, Ben and Joe are loading planks into a wagon, when Hoss decides to ride into town. Adam is stopped by his father from going with Hoss, then proceeds to go himself. Joe and Adam have a fun discussion over the blatant lie their father told them for his reason to go into town.

A small background part, when a deputy arrives on the ranch to tell Hoss he needs to stay there. Ben, Adam and Joe then ride into town to talk to the sheriff.

While they are in town, the brother turns up at the Ponderosa and baits Hoss. The Cartwrights return just in time to drag Hoss off. Adam does an amazing dismount, and then holds Hoss back.

Final scene, where they are all looking at some kittens.

Enjoy the little things in life
