The Dukes Of Hazzard

The Dukes of Hazzard Cast

Series Description

The Dukes of Hazzard TV show was a 60 minute comedy series that aired on CBS. The man in charge of Hazzard County was Boss Hogg. He had the Sheriff in his pocket and had something on just about everyone else. He couldn't rule the Dukes though no matter how hard he tried! Hogg's henchmen just weren't anywhere near smart enough to catch Bo and Luke Duke so they did pretty much as they pleased. The Sheriff's department's vehicles were no match for the Duke boys' car either. They just ate the Dukes' dust! They tried to catch them but they nearly always ended out in a crash. If the Sheriff blocked them, they'd always manage to simply jump over the squad car! Good ole boys thumbing their noses at corrupt law enforcement made for a really entertaining show!

Dukes Of Hazzard Trivia:

Bo and Luke were not allowed to have guns because they were on probation for selling moonshine so they used bows and arrows when they needed to shoot something.

The Duke boys' car, "The General Lee" that was most often seen on the Dukes of Hazzard TV show was a 1969 Dodge Charger but they often used 1968 and 1970 Chargers for close-up shots. The car was painted bright orange and had a Confederate Flag on the roof. When the Dukes honked the horn, the car played a few notes of the song, "Dixie".

Tom Wopat and John Schneider's contracts came up for renegotiation at the end of the fourth season of the Dukes of Hazzard. When NBC saw that they wouldn't be able to reach an agreement with them in time to begin filming the fifth season episodes, they hired two new actors to "fill in" as Bo and Luke's cousins. Eventually, agreements were reached and Tom and John returned to the show.

When they wanted to adjust how high the General Lee jumped, the Dukes of Hazzard stunt co-ordinators placed different quantities of cement in the trunk. That way, they could design a scene where the General Lee could be racing along at a very high speed but not jump ridiculously high when it hit a ramp!

Roscoe P. Coltrane's middle name was "Purvis".

James Best may have played a "goofball" as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on the Dukes of Hazzard but in real life he attended the prestigious Juilliard school of acting and he was a black belt in Karate!

When the Dukes of Hazzard TV show premiered, John Schneider ("Smallville") was a very young eighteen-years-old.

The setting for the Dukes Of Hazzard TV show was Covington, Georgia.

Prior to the timeline of the series, Luke Duke had spent a hitch as a U.S. Marine. Also at some point in the show's past, Boss Hogg and Uncle Jesse were friends who ran moonshine together!

Male viewers loved the carefree lifestyles of Luke and Bo Duke but they also watched the show to see Daisy Duke's magnificent hot pants! They became so popular that short, shorts became commonly referred to as "Daisy Dukes"!!!

The Bar that the Dukes frequented on the Dukes of Hazzard TV show was named the "Boar's Nest".

The General Lee had a past that made it an ironic purchase for the Duke boys. It had previously been used as a getaway vehicle during a bank robbery.

Ben Jones who played Cooter Davenport on the Dukes of Hazzard was later elected the Congressman from Georgia! Then he lost the office to the "Contract with America" architect and future Speaker of the House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich.

Dukes Of Hazzard Theme Song

Title: Good Ol' Boys

Artist: Waylon Jennings

Just the good ole boys.
Never meanin' no harm.
Beats all you never saw,
Been in trouble with the law,
Since the day they was born.

Straight'nin' the curve,
Flat'nin' the hills.
Someday the moutain might get 'em, but the law never will.

Makin' their way,
The only way they know how,
That's just a little bit more than the law will allow.

Just the good ol' boys,
Wouldn't change if they could,
Fightin' the system like a true modern day Robin Hood..
