Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

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!

One of the best!

A lot of people view this show as cheesy crap, full of stereotypes and short shorts, however, it is a great example of people making a show that is just plain fun.

I was very young when this show was on in prime time, and my memories of this show aren't just watching the car jump a creek, blaring the famous "Dixie" horn, but it was a show that I enjoyed watching with my father every Friday night (and when the President was on, we were both ticked off). The plots seem a little too complicated for rural Georgia, but this was never meant to be high drama, only an hour of fun and escapism.

I haven't watched the Dukes in years, but I am still affected by how much this show had an impact on me. My dog breed of choice is a Bassett hound, I always like to gun the engine of my car a little, and my eyes are always drawn to the color orange. Aren't yours?

My friends and wife question my ongoing love of the series, often saying the show is crap. It isn't, it's just very dated. My fondness of the show however, isn't just the show itself, but remembering the good times that revolved around it between my friends and my father. It represents a time in my life when I was as carefree as the General Lee on the back roads of Hazzard. Call it what you will, but it still feels like home.
