Are these Western illustrations from the credits of Bonanza or The Wild Wild West?

You see it every episode, but how well do you really know the artwork from the opening and closing credits?

The Sixties were the heyday for television credits sequences. Elaborate animations and music opened everything from sitcoms to sci-fi shows to Westerns.

Bonanza opened with a drawing of the Ponderosa ranch burning away to reveal the show’s stars riding on horseback. But the map wasn’t the only artwork used for the credits. The closing sequence featured detailed paintings of various Western scenes.

The Wild Wild West also used illustrations for its opening credits. The sketch style was a nod to the comic book-esque adventures of Jim West and Artemus Gordon.

How well do you know the artistic credit sequences of these two classic Westerns? Try to match the images below to the right series!

The Night of the Perfect Score.

The WWW opening shows that a pretty face can definitely hide an evil mind.

9 / 10 - 2 were a bit to figure out. When is W W W coming back. Bonanza is 'flush-able."

10/10 without breaking a sweat.
Sometimes wished they had sold prints of some of this artwork.
