There were many life-not-imitating-art aspects to Sorrell Booke's casting as J.D. Hogg as a naive & stupid man, meanwhile in reality, Booke was an Ivy League graduate who spoke several languages fluently and had done military intelligence work during the Korean War. The character was humorously and almost like a human cartoon, while Booke was well-established as a serious actor before accepting the role. Hogg appeared grotesquely overweight, and Booke in real life had to wear a huge fat suit to achieve the comedic dimensions sought. And while Hogg was a rightfully hated fictional character, Booke was well-liked by the cast and crew; in fact, the 1997 reunion movie came about after the main cast members went to Booke's funeral in 1994 and ended up talking to each other afterwards.

It is clear from the plant life and the terrain that the series is set, but not filmed, in the state of Georgia. This becomes even more apparent in later seasons when the budget is reduced and the number exterior shots show vegetation that doesn't grow in the southern US. 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 remember growing up and watching the Dukes of Hazzard on Friday nights before Dallas and Falcon Crest. The Duke boys were southern rebels. Of course, I grew wishing to be Daisy Duke. I loved Uncle Jesse played by Denver Pyle. I loved Sorrell Brooke in his white clothes. Of course, Enos was lovable. Who could forget his dog? He was a hush puppy. I remember the auto mechanic who was the friend to the Duke boys. I loved the theme song played I believe by Waylon Jennings, the country star. Who could forget those awesome car chase or the way the Duke boys slid in and out of cars? They never opened the doors but slid in and out. I always wanted to do that myself. I always thought those Duke boys were the sexiest men on television. They made a cinema film but you can't imagine anybody else playing those roles.
