Coltrane. Bo and Luke had been sentenced to probation for illegal transportation of moonshine. The Dukes of Hazzard exemplify Good ol boys, with their laid-back attitude and love for their car. ...

Many episodes revolved around Boss trying to engage in an illegal scheme with criminal associates. Some of these were get-rich-quick schemes, though many others affected the financial security of the Duke farm, which Boss had long wanted to acquire for nefarious reasons. Other times, Boss hired known criminals to frame Bo and Luke for crimes such as bank robbery (thus, resulting in probation revocation and allowing Boss to easily acquire the Duke farm). It was up to Bo and Luke to uncover the schemes and foil the criminals. Due to their fundamentally good natures, although Boss Hogg continually tried to frame them, the Dukes were always willing to help him out. Get-rich-quick schemes promise high rates of return for a small investment. ...


More than once Boss was targeted by former associates who were either seeking revenge or had turned against him after a scheme unraveled as a consequence of Boss' greedy nature or Rosco's bumbling. Sometimes, criminals who were even more crooked and ruthless than Boss came to town. Sheriff Rosco also found himself in trouble more than once. On such occasions, Bo and Luke usually had to rescue their adversaries as an inevitable precursor to defeating the bad guys.

Origins

The show was an adaptation of the movie Moonrunners (1975), based on the life and times of Jerry Rushing. In Moonrunners, the "Good Ol' Boys", Grady and Bobby Lee Hagg, ran moonshine for Uncle Jesse Hagg. Uncle Jesse prides himself on his old-fashioned moonshining and refuses to buckle to the 'big business moonshine' tactics of boss Jake, who controls the area for the New York mafia. There is an obvious parallel between the surnames 'Hagg' and 'Hogg', despite the transfer from hero to villain. Characters including "Uncle Jesse", "Sheriff Rosco Coltrane" and "Cooter" are also featured in the film. “Moonrunners” is a 1975 film, and the precursor to The Dukes of Hazzard. ... // January 28 - George Lucas creates the second draft of what would eventually become Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. ...

An ex-stock car test driver, Bo was the one who drove The General Lee most of the time. He was known for taking the car off wild jumps (and landing without a scratch). He and his cousin Luke were under probation for transporting moonshine and were not permitted use firearms (which leads to the use of bows and arrows by the two cousins) or leave the county. Along with Luke, Bo regularly fought on the side of justice against the corrupt law officials in Hazzard. Bo was known for his yell, "Yeeeee-Haaa!"

Luke Duke
  • Luke Duke (Tom Wopat) (1979–1982 & 1983–1985) was the dark-haired, older cousin. More mature and rational than his cousin Bo, he was typically the one who thought of the plan that would get the two out of whatever trouble they had gotten into. Luke was an ex-Marine and skilled fighter. He was the more physical of the two, often doing stunts like jumping onto moving cars. As part of their probation, Bo and Luke were not allowed to use firearms, instead using bow and arrows to fight corruption in Hazzard. Luke was best known for his famous "hood slide" across The General Lee, which was seen in the opening credits of the show.

Daisy worked as a waitress at the Boar's Nest, the local bar owned by Boss Hogg. She often used her looks and her position at the restaurant to get insider information to help the Dukes in foiling Boss's various schemes. Daisy also has the distinction of having her trademark provocatively high-cut jean short shorts named after her: "Daisy Dukes". CB Callsign: "Bo Peep"

Jesse Duke
Jesse Duke
  • Jesse Duke, (Denver Pyle) also known as "Uncle Jesse", was the patriarch of the Duke clan, and the father-figure to all Dukes who stayed with him on the dilapidated "Duke Farm". Jesse apparently had no children of his own, and happily provided for his nephews and niece in the unexplained absence of all of their parents (The creator of the show states on the DVDs that their parents were killed in a car wreck, but it was never mentioned in the show). Jesse Duke, in his youth, had been a Ridge-Runner in direct competition with J.D. Hogg, thus beginning the "feud" between the Dukes and the Hoggs. However, it should be noted that, while both Boss Hogg and Uncle Jesse would scowl at the mention of the other's name, the two enjoyed a lifelong "friendship" of sorts, with one helping the other when in desperate need. Jesse educated his nephews against Hogg, and often provided the cousins with inspirational sage advice. Uncle Jesse drove a white 1973 Ford F-100 pickup truck. CB Callsign: "Shepherd"

He is also the little brother of Lulu Coltrane Hogg, Boss Hogg's wife.

His vehicle was a white 1970 Cadillac Coupe de Ville convertible (almost always driven by a chauffeur), with bull horns attached to the hood. Boss Hogg was also married to Rosco's sister, a point that did not always sit well with either Boss Hogg or Rosco.

Only after he returned from his stint in Los Angeles did he totally refuse to harass the Dukes without just cause. He had a crush on Daisy Duke that she often used to the Dukes' advantage in unraveling Boss and Rosco's schemes. Enos is very much in love with Daisy, although the audience is almost always left with the feeling Daisy does not love Enos, even when she suggests marrying him to avoid testifying against him in court. Later, in one of the Dukes reunion movies, Enos and Daisy finally become a pair.

Memorable characters that appeared once in the series

  • B.B. Davenport — Cooter's cousin who filled in for him at the garage when Cooter was out of town. B.B. appeared in Granny Annie (portrayed by Mickey Jones).
  • Hazel
  • "Little Cousin" — An alien from outer space, portrayed by actor Felix Silla.
  • Mary Kaye Porter - A pregnant woman who was on the run from gangsters in Mary Kaye's Baby.
  • Ace Parker — Ace was Hazzard's number-two car salesman. (He was also the only car salesman in Hazzard. As Waylon Jennings put it, "There weren't no others. But ol' Ace just couldn't be first at anything.") Ace was a partner with Boss in their crooked car lot.
  • Dewey Hogg — Dewey Hogg was introduced in "How to Succeed in Hazzard". He is Hughie's older brother and is a proud supporter of crooked Hogg family values. Like Hughie, Dewey grew up with the Dukes and tormented them at every opportunity. As children, Dewey tried to push Daisy off the roof of the house in a soapbox airplane. He also cheated her out of first place in the All-School Spelling Bee, which Daisy is still upset about. Dewey, like Boss and Hughie, started his scams young. In the third grade, Dewey faked the Bubonic Plague and got the school closed for a week. In the ninth grade, Dewey sold all the school chairs and desks to get two moonshine stills. As Waylon said, "Dewey makes his Uncle Boss look respectable". Dewey was once a boy scout-apparently, that's where he learned how to plan out his schemes.
  • Buster Moon — Sheriff Buster Moon replaced Grady Byrd and made his only appearance in "Return of the Ridge Runners". To this day, no one really knows what prompted Boss to give Buster Rosco's job.
  • Abraham Lincoln HoggBoss Hogg's identical twin (and good) brother, played by Sorrell Booke in a dual-role. He wore a black suit and drove a black Cadillac convertible in direct contrast of his brother, J.D., who always wore white and drove a white Cadillac convertible.
  • Hortense Coltrane — Lulu and Rosco's skinny older sister, Hortense is a no-nonsense woman who doesn't think very highly of Boss. She appeared in "The Return of Hughie Hogg".
  • Jamie Lee Hogg (portrayed by Jonathan Frakes) — Jamie Lee Hogg is Boss's nephew who visits Hazzard in "Mrs. Daisy Hogg". Jamie is fabulously wealthy, like all the Hoggs, and at first appearance seems to have made all his money legally. However, Jamie Lee's true Hogg nature comes through when it's revealed he's the head of a major counterfeiting operation. When his partners turn on him and threaten Daisy, Jamie Lee does step up to defend her and tries to marry her so she wouldn't testify, but that doesn't keep him from being arrested for his illegal activities.
  • Mindy Lou
  • Clarence Stoveal — The bank janitor at Boss Hogg's bank.
  • Aunt Clara Coltrane - From the episode Sadie Hogg Day, she became acting sheriff for one day.
  • Jason Steele — A bounty hunter with a criminal past that supposed multi-millionaire Rosco hires to capture Bo and Luke Duke. Steele has a genuinely nasty disposition and loses his temper and kidnaps Rosco when the sheriff — upon learning he isn't a multi-millionaire after all — is unable to pay a $100,000 fee for services rendered.
  • Billy Joe Fong — A friend of the Dukes, Billy Joe was a member of Hazzard's oldest—and only—Chinese family, the Fongs.
  • Dr. Huer
  • Bobbi Lee Jordan
  • Terry Lee (portrayed by Danny Cooksey voiced by June Foray)
  • Big Daddy Hogg (portrayed by Les Tremayne) — The head of the Hogg clan comes to town in "Big Daddy". Boss's "Big Daddy" visits his son to see what kind of man he's become. While at first it seems Big Daddy is as straight as Abraham Lincoln Hogg, it is discovered he's more crooked than Boss ever was. Big Daddy is one of the biggest scam artists the South has ever seen, next to his son.
  • Lester Crabb (portrayed by Clifton James) — Sheriff Lester Crabb the "Traveling Sheriff", came to Hazzard in "Treasure of Hazzard" to replace Rosco. Lester was a very different type of Sheriff. According to the Balladeer, "When Lester walks by, babies cry, flowers wilt, and beer just naturally goes flat." Lester's motto was "Orders is orders", which would seem to make him good for Boss. However, Lester suddenly left Hazzard for parts unknown.
  • Nancy Lou (portrayed by Kim Richards) — In "Cooter's Girl" Cooter is reintroduced to his 18-year-old daughter, Nancy Lou. Years ago, Cooter and local girl Beverly Hibbs ran away and got married. Back then, Cooter was still somewhat of a wild man. Beverly's daddy had the marriage annulled, but not before Beverly got pregnant. Because of his wild side, both she and Cooter agreed it would be better if she raised Nancy alone. Beverly later remarried. When she turned 18, Nancy was told about her daddy and came to Hazzard to learn about him. After a typical Hazzard rough start, Nancy and Cooter finally got to spend time with each other and begin becoming a part of each other's lives.
  • Jonas — One of Cooter's friends.
  • Rufus Z. Coltrane — Rosco's Great Great Grandfather (portrayed by James Best).
  • Thaddeus B. Hogg — Boss Hogg's Great Great Grandfather (portrayed Sorrell Booke).
  • Dieter Davenport — Cooter's Great Great Grandfather (portrayed by Ben Jones).
  • Jeremiah Duke — Uncle Jesse's Great Great Grandfather (portrayed by Denver Pyle).
  • Jenny Duke — Uncle Jesse's Great Great Grandmother.
  • Waylon Jennings (as himself) came to Hazzard with a mobile Country Music museum, which Boss Hogg promptly stole (a crime he framed the Duke boys with). While Waylon is revealed as being an old friend of the Duke family and refuses to believe they had anything to do with the theft, his associate falls for Boss's tricks and is convinced that they stole the museum. The primary evidence is a hat that Waylon gave to the Duke boys (although he had also given out similar hats to other people), which was left at the scene of the crime. Naturally, everything is eventually cleared up and the Dukes help find and return the museum. During this episode, it is revealed that the Balladeer is, indeed, Waylon Jennings (who is recounting the tales of the Dukes, rather than just narrating the stories). One of the memorable "Waylonisms" of this episode is "Now, I should've known better than that..."
  • Jude Emery — Jude Emery is a Texas Ranger who came to Hazzard, in pursuit of bandit Russel "Snake" Harmon. Jude was an unconventional lawman: he drove a Korean War surplus Jeep and his gun didn't work. Jude and Daisy showed an attraction to one another, but like all classic cowboys, Jude rode off into the sunset.
  • Sheriff Emmitt "Spike" Loomis — The nastiest lawman in the South with an extremely bad temper, he's been known to rip off whole pieces of cars when angry. Very much a prototype of Sheriff Little.
  • Sheriff Grady Byrd played by Dick Sargent, Grady Byrd was Boss's cousin and night watchman at the gravel pits for 20 years before he finally gave him the chance to fill in for Rosco. Grady first appeared in "Officer Daisy Duke". While Grady did his best to live up to Boss Hogg's low expectations, it quickly became clear that Grady wasn't going to be a success at his new job. Grady left the job two episodes later.

The Celebrity Speed Trap

One of the show's great recurring gags was the Celebrity Speed Trap. With orders from Boss Hogg, Rosco would lower the speed limit on a particular to an unreasonable level so that singers of country music passing that way would be in violation (How Boss and Rosco acquired information of the stars' whereabouts was never revealed). The singers would then be required to sing at the Boars' Nest in exchange for having their citations trashed. Typically, the nabbed act would have a parting shot the nefarious commissioner and his half-witted yes man. Celebrities who were caught included:

Vehicles

The General Lee
The General Lee
  • The General Lee was a souped-up 1969 Dodge Charger. It was orange with a Confederate battle flag painted on the roof, and the words "GENERAL LEE" over each door. The name refers to the American Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The windows were always open, as the doors were welded shut; and the car has the number "01" on both sides. (Through the history of the show, an estimated 229 General Lees were used. Twenty still exist in various states of repair. The upper left corner of the "1" in the "01" varied, making for a continuity error.)

1974 Matador Police Car Replica
  • The 1974 AMC Matador was one of many different Hazzard County police cars used on the series, mostly in the first season. These were fitted with light bars, and working radios.

The Dukes of Hazzard was also infamous for the use (and destruction) of mid- to late-1970s Dodge Monacos and Plymouth Furys.

Bo and Luke leave the show

The Dukes of Hazzard was consistently among the top-rated television series (at one point, ranking second only to Dallas, which immediately followed the show on CBS' Friday night schedule).

Two "replacement Dukes" were subsequently hired (Byron Cherry as Coy, Christopher Mayer as Vance), and the ratings immediately sank. Much of the criticism was that Coy and Vance were nothing but clones of Bo and Luke, something that creator Gy Waldron himself has said was wrong. The scripts were nothing more than Bo and Luke ones with Bo and Luke crossed out - quite literally - and Coy and Vance penned in. The "faux Dukes" (one of the more polite ways viewers described the previously unmentioned nephews of Uncle Jesse, who were said to have left the farm in 1978, before the show had started) were never popular with viewers, and were immediately written out the show when Schneider and Wopat reached a settlement and returned to the series in early 1983. Some fans consider this period as "The Scabs of Hazzard". Cherry portrayed Coy Duke, one of the new Duke Boys, in the 1983 season of The Dukes of Hazzard. ... Chistopher Mayer is the name of two different actors. ...


Although Coy and Vance were never popular with the majority, many viewers were disappointed by their departure episode, "Welcome Back, Bo 'N' Luke", which was very much a standard episode, with the return of Bo and Luke and the departure of Coy and Vance tagged onto the beginning. As unpopular as they were, many fans would have liked to have seen Coy and Vance team up with Bo and Luke to tackle a particularly dastardly plot from Boss Hogg, but as it turned out, the "faux Dukes" had virtually no dialog and were gone by the first commercial break, never to be mentioned again.


While the return of Bo and Luke was welcomed by hardcore and casual viewers alike, the show never regained its former popularity. One of Wopat and Schneider's disputes even before they left was what they considered to be increasingly weak and formulaic scripts, something that many viewers, even including hardcore fans, tended to agree with. With Wopat and Schneider's return, the producers agreed to try a wider scope of storylines, even including some science fiction tones in certain episodes. However, the damage had been done with Coy and Vance, and at the end of its seventh season in 1985, The Dukes of Hazzard quietly ended its run.


Tourist attraction

Although Hazzard County, Georgia was a fictional location (the early episodes of the show were filmed in Covington, Georgia and Conyers, Georgia), the real-life town of Hazard, Kentucky was a beneficiary of the show's popularity. Members of the cast were frequent visitors to the town's annual Black Gold Festival. There are still gatherings of Dukes of Hazzard fans, the largest of which is the Dukesfest, which is now held at the Music City Motorplex in Nashville, Tennessee and organized by Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport) and his wife.

The "Cousin Countin' Game"

Many people have tried to decipher the Duke's family tree in an attempt to understand how it is that so many people could be cousins, all with the last name "Duke." The last unofficial word is that Jesse Duke would have had to have come from a family of seven boys, including himself, as he would have had to have six brothers to have produced offspring named "Duke."

  • Brother 1 - Luke and Jud Kane's father [Jud Kane appeared the episode "Brotherly Love" (Episode 4, Season 6. Original airdate: 14 October 1983). He is the long lost younger brother of Luke Duke, thought to have died in a hospital fire as an infant]
  • Brother 2 - Bo's father
  • Brother 3 - Daisy's father
  • Brother 4 - Coy's father
  • Brother 5 - Vance's father
  • Brother 6 - Jeb Stuart's father [Jeb Stuart Duke appeared in the episode "Along Came a Duke" (Episode 17, Season 3. Original airdate: 13 February 1981). He rides into Hazzard on a motocross bike]
  • Brother 7 - Jesse Duke

Considering Jesse's advanced age, it is possible he may have been a great-uncle to Bo, Luke and Daisy, and thus the brother of their grandfather. As the term "cousin" has a wide range of familial applications, it isn't strictly necessary for all the various cousins depicted on the show to be first cousins.

Dukes of Hazzard references

  • In 1982, Johnny Cash wrote a song called "The General Lee", which, of course, was about the General Lee, and was incredibly popular with Dukes of Hazzard fans.
  • Smallville (TV series): In episode 5-06, "Exposed", Jake Jennings (Tom Wopat), Jonathan Kent (John Schneider)'s oldest friend, rolls onto the Kent farm in a blue Dodge Charger with a General Lee roll bar and the signature General Lee 10-spoke vector wheels. During the episode Jake tells a story of how Jonathan once outran the cops in Chickasaw County, which neighbors fictional Hazzard County in the Dukes of Hazzard. Later in the episode, Lex Luthor refers to Jake Jennings as a "good ol' boy" in a conversation with Jonathan Kent. In a final tip of the hat to The Dukes of Hazzard, Jonathan Kent takes the wheel of the Dodge Charger, Jake Jennings climbs into the passenger window (because the door is stuck), and the pair tear off the farm where thereafter a few shots of short car jumps over the camera, à la Dukes of Hazzard, ensue.
  • Smallville (TV series): During the prologue of the episode "Nicodemus" (1-15), Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) is driving along in the family truck listening to the Dukes of Hazzard theme song on the radio ("The Good Ol' Boys" written and performed by the late Waylon Jennings) .
  • Family Guy: In the episode, To Live and Die in Dixie, a thug is after Chris, and Peter's family has to move south from Rhode Island. They relocate to one of the southern states and live in a run down house. "The Duke Boys would be proud" as Peter and Brian convert their station wagon into The General Lee, and always drive the car off a ramp whenever they see one to recreate the Dukes of Hazzard. A particularly memorable scene depicts Brian Griffin running to jump through the window. However, Brian knocks himself out cold as Peter has left the window closed. Later, in the episode The Fat Guy Strangler Brian throws a rock at Peter and states, That's for closing the window when I tried to jump in the damn General Lee. Also, in the episode Chitty Chitty Death Bang, Peter and Chris go to Cheesy Charlie's, and Peter has a watch with him while he tries to insert his hand into a prize grabber machine in order to cheat, and takes his arm out quickly when Chris appears. A kid plays the machine and pulls out Peter's watch, and says, "What's the Dukes of Hazzard?" Peter tries to steal the watch back from the kid while the screen freezes while Waylon Jennings says a line in a Dukes of Hazzard-esque style.
  • In the song "What was I thinking", Dierks Bentley sings the line "Hood Sliding like Bo Duke" in reference Schnieder's running slide across the hood of The General Lee in order to get to the drivers side when in a hurry.
  • In the song "19 Somethin'", Mark Wills refers to his first love being "Daisy Duke in those cutoff jeans", a reference to her famous shorts. In the music video, the artist arrives driving a Charger painted to look like The General Lee and equipped with a Dixie horn.
  • PvP: In this comic strip/book, the characters working at the titular game magazine have acquired a General Lee thanks to a wish granted by a genie and are occasionally seen driving it (typically flying through the air and yelling "yee-haw!") when in a particular hurry.
  • In the video for the Barenaked Ladies "One Week", they are featured doing the Dukes' "hood slide" across a replica General Lee Dodge Charger, sliding in through the windows of the closed doors, and spinning out as they race off.
  • In the movie Mars Attacks!, one of the shows the martians pick up on their monitors is the Dukes of Hazzard.
  • In one episode of the cartoon Johnny Bravo, the title character believes that time has stopped. One of the reasons for this is that he turns on the TV in the image is that of the General Lee hanging in the air, prior to the resuming of the show.
  • In the eighth season opener of South Park, called Cancelled, Chef (Isaac Hayes) has to out run aliens disguised roughly as officers and there are two jumps and in both jumps the General Lee's horn is heard. in the midst of the first jump either Trey Parker or Matt Stone does a pretty good impersonation of Waylon Jennings and his balladeering from the Dukes of Hazzard. Also there is a sign featuring a Boss Hogg-like character called 'Big Pig' on a billboard and after Chef lands the car and Kenny, Kyle, Stan & Cartman are abducted, Trey or Matt does the balladeering again and do a pretty good job. (The Dixie horn is actually taken from the first General Lee jump at the beginning of the first Dukes episode, 'One Armed Bandits' - if you listen carefully, you can hear the in-episode music playing behind it).
  • The 2006 TV Land Awards - During the show's opening montage of classic television theme songs, Tom Wopat and John Schneider sing a portion of "Good Ol' Boys" while scenes and opening credits of "The Dukes of Hazzard" roll on a jumbotron behind them. Later in the program, Wopat and Schneider presented the TV Land Pop Culture Award to the cast of Dallas, the show The Dukes of Hazzard preceded for its entire 7-season run on CBS.
  • The Knight Rider episode "Give Me Liberty...or Give Me Death" features a recognizable General Lee, as a car in an alternate-fuel car race. Missing its trademark flag, horn, and number, it is still recognizable from its paint color and wheels. It is driven by the moonshine-drinking "Prince Brothers" (as opposed to the "Duke Boys"). The episode is fascinating to fans of both shows for the simultaneous onscreen appearance of the legendary car of 1970s television, The General Lee, and KITT, the new hero-car for the 1980s. (Furthermore, early TV Guide ads for Knight Rider featured KITT over-taking a car closely resembling the General Lee, introducing the former as TV's new super-car.)
  • In the Superman: The Animated Series episode "New Kids on the Block", a flashback episode taking place at some point during the 70's or 90's, Martha Kent tells her husband Jonathan that "The Dukes of Hazzard" is on television. Ironically, several years later in the Smallville television series, the character of Jonathan Kent would be played by former Duke boy John Schneider himself.
  • An episode of Robot Chicken features a race with the Dukes in The General Lee. Then in the episode "Junk In The Trunk", bloopers from their show are shown in the scenes where they dive through the windows of the car.
  • A show called The Damn! Show did a very raunchy parody on their DVD called The Gooks of Hazzard which included many Asian jokes, and the two guys in the Bo and Luke role drove in a Subaru XT coupe painted in orange with the Japanese flag on the roof and "01" on the doors in an oriental font.
  • The show was also recently parodied for a Lotto Super 7 TV commercial in Canada; in the ad, the parody was called The Dukes of Windsor, starring Lucas (Luke) and Beauregard (Bo), a pair of rich and rebellious bon vivants being pursued by The CEO (Boss Hogg). The show's theme song, "Good Ol' Boys", was redone with new lyrics and a different arrangement to fit the theme of the parody, sounding similar to the Masterpiece Theatre theme song.

Trivia

  • Hazzard County used to be named Sleepy City.
  • A continuity error is evident in the first ever episode, ("One Armed Bandits"), where in a car chase scene around the town square, a shot from inside The General Lee clearly shows Bo and Luke drive at speed past another General Lee parked on the roadside. This second car is likely the one used to film external shots of the vehicle.
  • Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse) and Sorrell Booke (Boss Hogg) are the only characters to appear in every single episode of the series. Catherine Bach (Daisy) appears in all but one episode, the third season's "To Catch A Duke".
  • Waylon Jennings provides the voice of The Balladeer for every single episode.
  • The third episode, "Mary Kaye's Baby", is the only episode of the entire run that (bar the opening and closing credits) the General Lee does not appear in.
  • In 1987, Tom Wopat and John Schneider were reunited in the TV Movie Christmas Comes to Willow Creek. Probably by pure coincidence, a place called Willow Creek was occasionally mentioned in The Dukes of Hazzard.
  • During the second season, Ben Jones (Cooter) left the series for a few episodes due to a dispute with the producers. They wanted the character to be unshaven, whereas Jones had grown a full beard. In his absence, Cooter's place was filled by several of Cooter's supposed cousins, who, in typical Coy and Vance style, were never mentioned before or since. Jones returned when the dispute was solved – Cooter would be clean shaven. (However, for continuity reasons, this didn't occur until the third season).
  • Jerry Rushing, who played crooked used car salesman Ace Parker in the early, first season episode "Repo Men", was a former moonshine runner whose exploits were much of the inspiration for Moonrunners (the movie that lead to The Dukes Of Hazzard), and was said to be very much the inspiration for the character of Bo Duke. Rushing wanted the part of Ace Parker to be a re-occurring one, but "Repo Men" was his sole appearance.
  • The very early episodes are slightly, but noticeably, raunchier than the family-friendly show that the series would soon become. Examples include: light-hearted comments that Bo and Luke each have a number of girlfriends and that Luke may even be the father to several children; Bo telling Daisy (in "One Armed Bandits") "If we weren't related, I'd marry you", to which Daisy responds "That never stopped anyone in this family before"; mention of Enos being "the oldest virgin in Hazzard County"; the inclusion of 'good time girls' in the second episode, "Daisy's Song"; and use, by both Boss Hogg and Rosco, of the phrase "Jackass", which would evolve into Rosco's "Dipstick".
  • There are several noticeable differences in character in the very early episodes, including Rosco as an embittered, once honest law-man who turned crooked after being cheated out of his pension; and Cooter, far from being the clean-cut good ol' boy mechanic that he would become, instead being very much a petty criminal, stealing the Sheriffs car at the start of the first episode ("One Armed Bandits"), running moonshine for Boss Hogg in another ("Mary Kaye's Baby"), and even borrowing the Presidents limo for a joyride in "Limo One Is Missing". All of the characters in general are more serious and grittier than the caricatures that they would develop into.
  • The two-hour / two-part story "Carnival Of Thrills", (produced at the end of the second season, broadcast at the start of the third season), was adapted into a set of reels for children's 3D toy View-Master. The fourth season episode "Pin The Tail On The Dukes" was later adapted into a second set.
  • Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse), James Best (Rosco), Tom Wopat (Luke), Sorrell Booke (Boss Hogg) and John Schneider (Bo) all directed episodes of the series.
  • At the end of the seventh season, the cast and crew knew that the series had not been renewed for another season and that it was the end of the series. Instead of a 'closure' episode, things ended with a standard episode, "Opening Night at the Boar's Nest", the only notable thing about this episode being that it was written and directed by John Schneider (Bo).
  • The shot of a guitar being held and played at the start of the first season opening credits wasn't of Waylon Jennings. The shot was updated to a shot that was actually of him at the start of the second season, remaining for the rest of the show's run.
  • As well as the two spin-offs, Enos and the animated The Dukes, two second season episodes, "Jude Emery" (about a Texas ranger), and "Mason Dixon's Girls" (about a Private Investigator and his two attractive associates) were both pilots for possible new shows, but neither one became an actual series.
  • In Waylon Jennings song good ol boys, one verse mentions "They keep a showin' my hands and not my face on tv". This references his ballader role to the show, and is the reason Waylon appeared in the show only once.

The Dukes of Hazzard and Television's Simple South (2441 words)
Hazzard, where Atlanta is referred to as "the big- city," fits the prescription for a rural community perfectly.
The Dukes, and the rest of Hazzard county, are all blue collar workers, and Boss Hogg, who owns the bank, the Boar's Nest, and most of the property in the county, serves as the lone representative of the rich.
Are the writers of The Dukes of Hazzard guilty of this tendency to simplify?
