According to the "Unofficial Guide to The Dukes of Hazzard (1979)", Gy Waldron wanted Hazzard "to be in a location like Chatsworth, Georgia." Chatsworth, in northwest Georgia's Murray County, has a strong "bootlegging" history. See more »
In several episodes, during pursuit scenes, footage would show makes and models of the Sherriff Department cars that would differ from cut to cut, and be different than the ones shown driven by Roscoe, Enos and Cletus. 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).
