  • Trivia

    • Discontinuity: When Lucas is greasing his wagon's axle and talking to Will Fulton (Michael Landon), the stitching that forms the letter W - the logo for Wrangler Jeans - is clearly visible on his back pockets. However, according to network publicists (and the wooden plaque which would soon sit next to the home stating that it was rebuilt by Lucas and his son in August, 1881), the series was set in the 1880s - and Wrangler didn't begin making blue jeans until 1947, when it introduced the Wrangler 11MWZ to the world, with innovations incorporated especially for working cowboys.
