So watch this movie if you want bad jokes, stupid dialog and an occasional excuse to see breasts bouncing around. The miniature car effects were intended as a budget saving measure to save the cost of repairing or replacing damaged vehicles and to help compete visually with from the series. Time was of the essence, and the men that worked at this shop worked hard hours to get the cars prepared for the show. Each of the Hazzard County Sheriff's Department officers drives various mid- to late-1970s Chrysler mid-size patrol cars, most often a or. With Wopat and Schneider's return, the producers agreed to try a wider scope of storylines.
There were some cutting edge shows in the 70s for the time period and this is hardly one of them. The design of the roll cage also varied across the seasons. As such, the producers used 1:8 scale miniatures, filmed by Jack Sessums' crew, or recycled stock jump footage — the latter being a practice that had been in place to an extent since the second season, and had increased as the seasons passed. Since it was built as a race car, the doors were welded shut. Created by Gy Waldron in collaboration with ex- , this movie shares many. The Dixie horn was not originally planned, until a Georgia local racer drove by and sounded his car's Dixie horn.

He had a wife named Rachel and also a daughter. Note: was the only country music guest star who did not perform a song, celebrity speed trap or otherwise.
Bo, Luke and Daisy also drove Jesse's truck on occasion. The ill-tempered sheriff hated Bo, Luke, Daisy, Coy, Vance, Uncle Jesse, and Cooter immensely and they were well aware that Bo and Luke were not allowed to enter his county. Like Luke, Vance is more the thinker and the planner of the duo along with being more mature than Coy and he is also a former. Waldron reworked various elements from Moonrunners, and from it was devised what would become The Dukes of Hazzard. Production began in October 1978 with the original intention of only nine episodes being produced as mid-season filler.
His normal character, Rosco, is presumed drowned while a criminal that looks like Rosco has a headache. In his absence, Cooter's place was filled by several of Cooter's supposed cousins who were never mentioned before or since. By the end of the first season, his origin had been virtually forgotten and his job as sheriff appeared to become open-ended. When he returns from his stint in Los Angeles, he seems to be able to stand up to Boss and Rosco slightly more, and sometimes refuses to participate in their schemes. Typically, Boss Hogg would call in Hughie once per season to come up with a particularly dastardly scheme to get rid of the Dukes.
In the original five Georgia-filmed episodes, a Confederate flag along with a checkered racing flag in a criss-cross pattern could be seen behind the rear window; this was removed when it was felt that this extra detail did not show up enough on-screen to warrant the already very tight time constraints of preparing and repairing each example of the car. These instances became more frequent as the show progressed, and later seasons saw a number of stories where the Dukes and Hogg and Coltrane temporarily work together. They are sent to live with their Uncle Jesse Willie Nelson at his farm in rural Hazzard County in an unnamed southwestern state. When John Schneider auditioned for the role of Bo Duke, he came to the audition in a dilapidated pickup truck, sporting a week-long beard growth, wearing overalls and a white T-shirt with a pack of cigarettes rolled up in a sleeve collar, and carrying a can of beer, trying to look the part. Boss Hogg, the mean and corrupt local county commissioner who hates The Dukes evicts The Dukes from their farm. He is a friend of the Dukes, and sometimes falls under Hogg's crooked schemes simply because he is too timid to stand up for himself. The name refers to the General.

Rosco is also the younger brother of Lulu Coltrane Hogg Boss Hogg's wife. Bo and Luke had previously been sentenced to probation for illegal transportation of ; their Uncle Jesse made a with the U. Bo and Luke's orphaned dowdy cousin Daisy April Scott soon joins them hoping to find a place in her life. Traveler was originally intended to be the name of the Duke boys' stock car too, until producers agreed that General Lee had more punch to it. After performing a concert in Hazzard, Gilley was nabbed while leaving and forced to do a second show to nullify his citation.
As a result, Bo and Luke are on five years probation and not allowed to carry firearms — instead, they often use , sometimes with arrows tipped with — or to leave Hazzard County unless they get probation permission from their probation officer, Boss Hogg, although the exact details of their probation terms vary from episode to episode. In addition, the television series began to rival the General Lee's stunts. In the first few seasons, he is almost always driven around by a. Bo has a crush on many women in some episodes, which proves to be the that leads the Dukes into trouble in several episode plots. Like the two Hazzard County deputies, Hughie has eyes for Daisy Duke, but his feelings are merely of a selfish, lustful nature; Daisy despises Hughie, and thus the only reason that she will ever appear to return Hughie's interest is merely to charm him into relaxing his guard or lure him away from a certain area until the other townspeople can prepare to act against him, thus preventing him from subjecting Hazzard County to additional corruption. Enos is very much in love with Daisy, and although Daisy seems to love him back, it is supposedly only as a close friend.
