In Waylon Jennings' album version of "The Good Old Boys", there is an additional lyric at the end of the song: "You know my mama loves me... But she can't understand why they keep showing my hands and not my face on TV!" This refers to the fact that it is indeed Waylon Jennings' hands playing the guitar in the opening credits. See more »
In one episode, Roscoe steals the General Lee and is forced to make his first jump over someone's camping trailer, but ends up clipping it with the rear wheels of the General and destroying the trailer. The inside of the trailer is visible in the destruction and is clearly shown to be an empty prop trailer. See more »
From season two on, an audio stinger of Roscoe's "Coo Coo" was played over the Warner Brothers Television closing logo. In some episodes the audio was of Boss Hogg exclaiming "Them Dukes, them Dukes!" See more »
OK, I'm a junkie. I just can't help myself. I watched the "Dukes" episodes when they originally aired, built a website for the show in the 1990s, watched the show again on TNN (when it was the NASHVILLE Network, you understand), wrote a book companion to the show, and now, as the show is airing again on CMT, I'm STILL watching the episodes again!
Was there any other TV show like it? I don't think so. "The Dukes of Hazzard" was a one-of-a-kind. You can watch these episodes over several phases of life and maturity -- and still find value in them! Holy cow.
I was always, of course, impartial to Flash, Rosco's hound, as well as the rarely appearing brother of our dastardly Boss Hogg, Abraham Lincoln Hogg, the "white sheep" of the family. And you could always appreciate the country values the Dukes always espoused ... be good to your neighbor, thank the Lord before meals, don't lie or cheat or steal.
"The Dukes of Hazzard" is not rocket science, it's not deep or profound or socially redeemable or whatever else. It's just plain heckin' fun!!!!
