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 »
A main plot point of the series was Bo and Luke's probation, which restricted them from legally leaving Hazzard County. However, when actors Tom Wopat and John Schneider walked off set over salary disputes at the start of Season 5, the characters of Bo and Luke were temporally written off the show and replaced by look-alike cousins Coy Duke (Byron Cherry) and Vance Duke (Christopher Mayer). This move was explained by informing viewers that Bo and Luke had left Hazzard County to race as professional NASCAR drivers. But how could Bo and Luke travel around the country if they were still on probation? 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 »
The Dukes of Hazzard was one of my favorite television shows. But when it first aired, I didn't like it. I resented it because it replaced the Incredible Hulk. But after watching two or three episodes, I saw that it was a great show. I was seven years old at the time. I've seen about every episode. I didn't care much for the Coy and Vance episodes but I still watched them. I liked the two Mean green machine episodes. The Dukes of Hazzard was based on a movie titled Moonrunners. Moonrunners had the Boars nest, sheriff Rosco Coltrane(Not James Best), the Cooter character and Waylon Jennings as the balladeer. Moonrunners also had Uncle Jessie. But not Denver Pyle or Jessie Duke. Jessie Hag. Like on the Dukes of Hazzard, Jessie Hag lived with two nephews who ran shine for him. Sadly the Uncle Jessie character dies near the end of Moonrunners. Duke fans should be thankful for Moonrunners. If Moonrunners hadn't been made, the Dukes of Hazzard wouldn't exist. I've seen both the Dukes of Hazzard and Moonrunners. The Dukes are better.
