James Best also left the series temporarily during season two over a dispute regarding the dressing rooms. He was replaced by Jeff Altman as Hughie Hogg, followed by Clifton James as Lester Crabb, Dick Sargent as Grady Byrd, and James Hampton as Buster Moon. Altman and James were listed as guest star sheriffs, while Byrd and Hampton were actually listed in the opening credits. Dick Sargent as Grady Byrd also was the only one that was Hazzard County's sheriff, twice. See more »
Sherriff Coltrane's first name, in written or printed form, appears variously as either Rosco (the correct spelling) or Roscoe, throughout the series. This may be a deliberate portrayal of the supposed general illiteracy of "Deep Southern" people. 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 »
I just realised that this series was based on the 1974 movie "Moon Runners," which didn't have the Duke family, but it did have characters named Uncle Jesse, Cooter, and Waylon Jennings as the Balladeer. The main characters, Bobby Lee Hag and Grady even had a stock car which they raced. The car wasn't named "General Lee," but was named after Robert E. Lee's horse, Traveler. They significantly cleaned up the story to make it family-friendly for television. In the movie, the main characters were involved in the illegal alcohol business. Uncle Jesse was a moonshiner who was in trouble with other local moonshiners because of his insistence on quality. Bobby Lee was a rum runner, who used his big old Chevy to outrun the local sheriff and the revenuers (tax authorities).
