During one of the famous jump sequences, recorded before the series debuted on Friday, January 26th, 1979, the stunt crew actually set a world record. The jump's height was 16 feet and length was 82 feet long, and it occurred on Saturday, November 11th, 1978. Stuntdriver, Craig R. Baxley is believed to be the successful driver of this historic jump. 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 »
Tom Wopat and John Schneider were, of course, tremendous, as Bo and Luke on "The Dukes of Hazzard"!! What can you say about Catherine Bach (Daisy)? Every man's dream, we won't say what kind!! Also, Chip Mayer and Byron Cherry were really good as Bo and Luke's cousins!! I liked this show!! The "Dukes of Hazzard" exemplified the term, innocuous, and interjected humorous predicaments with a g-rated sex appeal, and hilariously classic car chase scenes!! The recent release of the '2005 movie only fortified American's interest in the original series!! Many people have a yearning to reminisce about the days of the Duke Boys of Hazzard County, and their naive chicanery!!...All of the ossified, pork barreling buffoons that tried to incarcerate the Duke boys and their cousins, contributed to the comical twist in this series as well!! I liked "Dukes of Hazzard", it was indicative of a bygone era in television which garnered a particularly fond remembrance to it!! Tom Wopat and John Schneider have an immense amount of talent, as their singing voices are spectacular!! It is an undeniable fact that both of them definitely fall into the category of Hollywood superstars!! Chip Mayer is a former super model, and Catherine Bach has been voted the seventh sexiest woman EVER!! on television. Accolades like this make "Dukes of Hazzard" very noteworthy in the wonderful world of hour long adventure comedies on television!! The creativity of this series manufactured a familiarity with the television audience in terms of the rural association we have always cherished for prime time to display every once in awhile!!
