Did You Know?


During one of the famous jump sequences, that was recorded before the series debuted on Friday, Januany 26th, 1979 the stunt crew actually set a world record. History.com's date of November 11 and the category of Automotive shows the fact. The jump's height was 16 feet and length was 82 feet long, occurred on Saturday, November 11th, 1978. Stuntdriver, Craig R. Baxley is believed to be the successful driver of this historic jump. 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 »


The Balladeer: [opening song] 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 / Straightenin' the curves / Flattenin' the hills / Someday the mountain 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 ole' boys / Wouldn't change if they could / Fightin' the system like a true-modern day Robin Hood.
Bo & Luke: [shout] Yee-haw!

I Liked All Five of Them!!
17 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom Wopat and John Schneider were, of course, tremendous, as Bo and Luke on "The Dukes of Hazzard"!! What can you say about Catherine Bach (Daisy)? Every man's dream, we won't say what kind!! Also, Chip Mayer and Byron Cherry were really good as Bo and Luke's cousins!! I liked this show!! The "Dukes of Hazzard" exemplified the term, innocuous, and interjected humorous predicaments with a g-rated sex appeal, and hilariously classic car chase scenes!! The recent release of the '2005 movie only fortified American's interest in the original series!! Many people have a yearning to reminisce about the days of the Duke Boys of Hazzard County, and their naive chicanery!!...All of the ossified, pork barreling buffoons that tried to incarcerate the Duke boys and their cousins, contributed to the comical twist in this series as well!! I liked "Dukes of Hazzard", it was indicative of a bygone era in television which garnered a particularly fond remembrance to it!! Tom Wopat and John Schneider have an immense amount of talent, as their singing voices are spectacular!! It is an undeniable fact that both of them definitely fall into the category of Hollywood superstars!! Chip Mayer is a former super model, and Catherine Bach has been voted the seventh sexiest woman EVER!! on television. Accolades like this make "Dukes of Hazzard" very noteworthy in the wonderful world of hour long adventure comedies on television!! The creativity of this series manufactured a familiarity with the television audience in terms of the rural association we have always cherished for prime time to display every once in awhile!!
