If you ignore all the racist undertones of a bunch of southerners enamoured by the confederate flag, The Dukes of Hazzard was a lot of fun, especially the times those Duke boys had to pile into the General Lee and lead Rosco P Coltrane and Boss Hogg on a merry chase.
The Saturday morning Hanna-Barbera cartoon show The Dukes was built on the concept that Boss Hogg 9voiced by Sorrell Booke) wanted to foreclose on the Duke’s farm but had somehow agreed to a race around the world, with the winner getting the spoils.
Hogg brought Sherriff Rosco (James Best) along for the ride and all that stood in his way were those pesky Duke boys, Coy and Vance.
Wait!? What?? Who the hell are Coy and Vance?!?
They’re the Duke cousins who appeared because Tom Wopat and John Schneider were on strike over a pay dispute.
For the second season, Wopat and Schneider were back, and so Daisy was joined by Bo and Luke on their race around the world, stopping off in places like Morocco, Greece, India, and the Arctic Ocean.
The final episode ended in the Philippines, where Uncle Jessie turned up with a treasure map he found at home, thus negating everything that happened in the previous nineteen episodes!
