    Haven't seen the Mill Creek set, Chas, but Ivan Shreve's "Thrilling Days of Yesteryear" blog site reported that opening/closing theme music has been replaced on all of the "Bonanza" episodes. The good news is that Mill Creek collects all of the 31 public domain "Bonanza" episodes in a single collection and throws in the three PD episodes of "Wagon Train" as a "bonus."

    The Brentwood/BCI Eclipse 20-episode set does include the original theme music and has decent transfers as well . . . . . it's, arguably, the best of the "Bonanza" PD releases, but it does not include all of the available PD episodes.

    I always liked ol' Dan's "Welcome to our show for Chevrolet" opening.

    Given its name recognition, I'm suprised that an official Bonanza DVD realease from CBS/Paramount isn't on the radar, not even as a best of. Any reason to this?

    Forget those crappy "best of" sets. I want full season sets. It's like watching random episodes on television.
