Trivia

There were many life-not-imitating-art aspects to Sorrell Booke's casting as J.D. Hogg, an ineffectual bad guy. Although he played a corrupt Southern politician, Booke was actually a Jewish actor from Buffalo, New York. He was an Ivy League graduate, with degrees from Columbia and Yale, who had done military intelligence work during the Korean War and spoke several languages fluently. (Cast member Rick Hurst recalled hearing Booke and another actor rehearsing a scene in fluid Japanese.) The character of Boss Hogg was humorous and cartoon-like, while Booke was well-established as a serious actor before accepting the role. Hogg appeared grotesquely overweight, and Booke in real life had to wear a huge fat suit to achieve the comedic dimensions sought. And while Hogg was a rightfully hated fictional character, Booke was well-liked by the cast and crew; in fact, the 1997 reunion movie came about after the main cast members went to Booke's funeral in 1994 and ended up talking to each other afterwards.

Goofs

Despite being lifelong residents of Hazzard County, Georgia neither Bo, nor Luke Duke, could consistently speak with a Southern accent, much less a Georgia one. This becomes even more apparent after John Schneider and Tom Wopat return from their Season 5 salary holdout. See more »

What kid didn't like the Duke Boys?
23 August 1999 | by baumerSee all my reviews

I remember being eight years old when I started watching this show. I would anxiously await the Friday line up that included The Incredible Hulk, Dallas, Falcon Crest and this one. That was a great Friday line up, highlighted of course by the Dukes. What was so appealing about this show to so many people was it's virtue. I'm sure parents wanted their kids to watch it because you couldn't have a better show for their kids to watch. It was safe. The Dukes were polite, virtuous and church going. How could they not like that? How could a parent object to anything like that? But of course as kids we liked it for different reasons.

Stunts, fast cars, Daisy, Boss Hogg and Roscoe. The Dukes of Hazard was so absurd sometimes but it always entertained you and more often than not it made you laugh. Could you imagine what the script must have looked like when they first pitched it to studio? Could you imagine how silly Roscoe must have looked on paper? I mean how do you write in his ridiculous laugh? How do you write all of his idiosyncrasies? Or was that all James Best? I don't know, but it sure was funny.

TV is different now in the 90's and beyond. Shows are more gritty and real and there is nudity and foul language and talk of homosexuality and alcoholism and a plethora of other issues. And that is fine. I like shows like Dawsons Creek and Friends and such, but Dukes of Hazard is a throw back to a simpler time. It is a time in television history when innocence was combined beautifully with humour, fast cars and lots of scenes of the General Lee jumping creeks. This was so much fun to watch and even when Coy and Vance came on the show, it was still okay.

The Dukes of Hazard was classic TV. My generation looks at this like my parents generation looks at Leave It To Beaver. Has twenty years really gone by?
