How did Bonanza end?
The writers and the rest of the cast and crew did not know that the series would be canceled so there never was really an ending. It's too bad that such a long running program never got to tie up loose ends and let America say goodbye to the beloved characters. The actors also never got a chance to officially close that chapter of their lives.

Usually a pancake dish served with fresh bananas, pancakes and cream, some times with butter or syrup as well.
A bonanza (from bonacia , a fortuitously calm sea ) can be a windfall, bounty or riches. The term was applied to a valuable ore vein or lode, and metaphorically to any ot…her source of great wealth or prosperity. (On the television series, the resources of the vast Ponderosa were immensely valuable.)

One reason for the end of the western cattle bonanza was--overgrazing of the plains. (NovaNet)
I'll give you three to choose from: railroads, the terrible winter of 1887 and the Great Depression in the 1930s which were a result from intense overgrazing of rangeland by c…attle ranchers.
The artwork in the opening and closing credits of Bonanza seem to be something of a mystery. Under the direction of the show's art director Earl Hedrick an unknown journeyman …artist drew the sketches and watercolors for the series. After a few months into the show's first season in 1959, this artist left the studio for parts unknown. Later, efforts were made to find this artist and give him credit for his now famous work but to no avail. He was never found. Stranger still, another journeyman artist was hired by the production company for other still works. He too moved on after a short while. When his work remained unnamed, efforts were made to find him also, again with no results. I find it strange that after the first unknown artist that someone didn't keep better records but 'that's showbiz'.
Bonanza was never filmed in black and white. The mother company of NBC was RCA which wanted to sell color TV's. The Cartwrights were always in color, unless of course you didn…'t own a color set.

Little Joe is persued by a homicidal maniac.
The final episode was called The Hunted. Little Joe is persued by a homicidal nut. Since the cast and crew did not expect the series to end at that time, a final show tying up… lose ends was not possible. The series was cancelled in the summer of 1973.
Ben took so much time in deciding who to vote for that his ballot was late and therefore invalid. That made another election the following week a reality. Both mayoral candida…tes were so turned off by the process of the first election that they withdrew their candidacies and another man was appointed mayor of Virginia City.
