Times have certainly changed. There was a time when an appearance by the stars of the hot Dukes of Hazzard series would have caused a stampede of fans. Now, over 20 years after the classic series went off the air, it appears that some feel about as warmly about "the Duke boys" as Boss Hogg.
The Dukes of Hazzard was an incredibly popular series that ran on CBS from 1979 until 1985. The show followed the adventures of Bo and Luke Duke as they evaded the corrupt Boss Hogg and his inept police force. The adventure series inspired two spin-off shows (an animated version and a short-lived series centered around dimwitted Deputy Enos), and two reunion movies in 1997 and 2000. The series starred John Schneider, Tom Wopat, Catherine Bach, Denver Pyle, James Best, Sorrell Booke and, of course the Duke car, the high-jumping General Lee. A film remake hit theaters in 2005 and a prequel »
The Dukes of Hazzard was a very popular primetime show that ran on CBS for seven seasons, from 1979 until 1985. The series inspired a slew of merchandising sporting the faces of series stars John Schneider, Tom Wopat and Catherine Bach and of course their car, the high-jumping General Lee. There was also a Saturday morning animated series, a short-lived spin-off (which focused on Deputy Enos Strate), and two reunion movies in 1997 and 2000.
Over 25 years after the original series debuted, a feature film based on the series was released in 2005. The film starred Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott, Jessica Simpson, Burt Reynolds and Willie Nelson. Though there was no relation to the TV show beyond the title and premise, the film did moderately well, taking in $110 million worldwide. It was named the worst picture of the year by several critics but that's not stopping the studio from going back to the till one more time. »
