My favorite character on Bonanza was Hoss. Played by the great Dan Blocker, he brought a gentleness and humor to the show. Perhaps his importance on the western was underestimated. But he was the balance between his brothers and father, bringing the middle ground to Joe's impulsiveness and possible anger, with his father's leadership and sternness. Great character.
David Canary as "Candy" was my favorite character. David added a lot to the series as "Candy". I would love to win this 10th Season DVD set to see the episodes featuring David Canary restored and unedited.
