Whatever happened to Bonanza?

Our reader Dan Boyd tells us that he just bought Madacy Entertainment’s Bonanza 5-disk box set. As a fan of the TV series he was extremely upset to find out that Madacy have removed the original “Bonanza” theme music from all the series’ episodes and replaced it with a different one.

Certainly there are legal issues involved in this procedure – Madacy might save a few dollars not having to pay license fees to the authors of the original theme – but it is inexcusable in our opinion to violate films to this extend for what ever reason and we thought we should let you know.
