The Dukes Of Hazzard show was a actually a movie that came out in 1975 called Moonrunners. With Waylon Jennings as the balladeer. Ben Jones "Cooter" in the TV show but as Agent Fred from Chicago. Bo, Luke and Uncle Jesse did not have the last name Duke but instead was Hagg. James Mitchum played Grady Hagg (Luke), Kiel Martin as Bobby Hagg (Bo), Bruce Atkins as Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane, Bill Gruber as Cooter Pettigrew and Arthur Hunnicut as Uncle Jesse Hagg. See more »
Throughout the series, Hugie Hogg (Jeff Altman) always appeared with a duo of henchman. The henchmen, even though played by the same actors in every appearance, constantly switched names. Actor Roger Torrey's character had the names Wayne and Norris, while actor Pat Studstill's character switched names between Floyd and Barclay. 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 »
I just realised that this series was based on the 1974 movie "Moon Runners," which didn't have the Duke family, but it did have characters named Uncle Jesse, Cooter, and Waylon Jennings as the Balladeer. The main characters, Bobby Lee Hag and Grady even had a stock car which they raced. The car wasn't named "General Lee," but was named after Robert E. Lee's horse, Traveler. They significantly cleaned up the story to make it family-friendly for television. In the movie, the main characters were involved in the illegal alcohol business. Uncle Jesse was a moonshiner who was in trouble with other local moonshiners because of his insistence on quality. Bobby Lee was a rum runner, who used his big old Chevy to outrun the local sheriff and the revenuers (tax authorities).
