We chased lady luck, 'til we finally struck Bonanza.
With a gun and a rope and a hat full of hope, planted a family tree.
We got hold of a pot of gold, Bonanza.
With a horse and a saddle, and a range full of cattle, how rich can a fellow be?

On this land we put our brand, Cartwright is the name,
fortune smiled, the day we filed the Ponderosa claim.
Here in the West, we're livin' the best, Bonanza,
if anyone fights any one of us, he's go a fight with me, Bonanza.

Hoss and Joe and Adam know every rock and pine,
no one works, fights, or eats, like those boys of mine.
Here we stand in the middle of a grand Bonanza.
With a gun and a rope and a hatful of hope,
we planted our family tree, we got hold of a potful of gold, Bonanza.

With a houseful of friends where the rainbow ends, how rich can a fellow be?
On this land we put our brand,
Cartwright is the name, fortune smiled, the day we filed the Ponderosa claim.
Here in the west we're livin' the best Bonanza.

With the friendliest, fightingist, loving band,
that ever set foot in the promised land,
and we're happier than them all.
That's why we call it Bonanza...Bonanza...Bonanza...

Lyrics written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.


Yes, there are two versions of the famous Bonanza theme song. The first gem was filmed for the pilot episode "A Rose For Lotta". Thankfully, NBC executives nixed it before the episode aired, otherwise the Cartwrights would have been a one-evening wonder!
The Ill-Fated Bonanza Lyrics For The Pilot

(Little Joe solo) I've got a flair for women everywhere---Bonanza!
(Hoss solo) Bonanza! (Barks and howls)
(All three) I'm not afraid of any pretty maid--Bonanza! Bonanza!
But when I give a kiss to any little miss, She'll learn a lot from me

(Ben solo) I'm not afraid of any pretty maid--Bonanza!
(All three) Bonanza!
When I give a kiss to any little miss
She'll learn a lot from me
Hair of brown, hair of gold
I'll take what I see

We're not a one to saddle up and run--Bonanza! Bonanza!
Anyone of us who starts a little fuss
Knows he can count on me
One for four, four for all
This we guarantee

We got a right to pick a little fight--Bonanza! Bonanza!
If anyone fights any one of us
He's gotta fight with me!

The Munsters and Sopranos. I think if the themes were switched they'd both still work well with the opening sequences.

Post it when you're done (hint, hint).

Imagine someone getting whacked stop-motion Munster-style.

The X-Files. Brilliantly evokes the paranormal atmosphere of the show and its a great theme to whistle to. The Threnody in X version is even better.
