Storyline

Shapely carnival stunt show operator Diane Benson offers Bo the opportunity of a lifetime: Being the star of the headline act. The act involves a stunt driver jumping over a row of 32 cars. Luke investigates Diane's background and learns that several previous accidents involving the car-jumping act were no accidents. When he comes forward with his findings, Bo refuses to believe Luke, leading to a huge fight that could split the Duke family apart. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Warner Home Video includes the episode "Carnival Of Thrills" in the Season 3 box set and describes it as the Season Premiere airing 9/16/80. This is not true. Season 3 began late because of an actor's strike with "Enos Strate To The Top" on Wednesday 11/5/80 as a lead in to Sonny Shroyer's new spinoff series "Enos" which aired an hour later (another episode of "Dukes" aired Friday 11/7/80). "Carnival" was actually shot during Season 2 and aired as a CBS Special Movie Presentation on Sunday 4/20/80 after Season 2 ended. Since the show has aired in syndicated reruns, it is now shown as a 2 part episode (both parts featuring the same teaser trailer). For reasons unknown at this time, Warner chose to release it on DVD in the Season 3 set (possibly because of not enough space to record it with Season 2) and it is the syndicated copy on the DVD.
