Contains the following three episodes:
- Double Sting (47 mins approx.)
Bo and Luke are arrested for fighting with a stranger at the Boars Nest, but in the jail, the local physician suspects that the stranger has a case of the plague and quarantines the jail, with the police, Bo, Luke and Uncle Jesse there. Then the bank is robbed by two crooks disguised as Laurel and Hardy, leaving Daisy to give chase.
- Duke of Duke (47 mins approx.)
Gaylord Duke (Simon McCorkindale), the Dukes cousin from England comes to Hazzard to claim a property that was willed to him, and Daisys heart to boot. But the property has back taxes owed on it, which Boss Hogg is planning to buy for nothing at an auction.
- Follow That Still (47 mins approx.)
The Dukes help Hard Luck Jones, an old moonshiner, get away from the revenuers, until he builds a still on the Dukes property inside an armoured personnel carrier that he stole from Boss Hogg, containing contraband cigarettes.
Based around a battle between good old-fashioned family values and comically corrupt authority and always finding time for an action-packed car chase or two, The Dukes of Hazzard
was perfect fun-filled family entertainment for its teatime viewing audience.
Light on plotting, each episode featured the ongoing feud between the Duke family--lovable rogues Bo and Luke, their sexy cousin Daisy and Uncle Jesse--and the weasly duo of Boss Hogg and Sheriff Rosco P Coltrane. But the plot was arbitrary really; what audiences really waited for were the scenes involving General Lee--a souped-up Dodge Charger--racing, jumping, skidding and even flying around in hot pursuit of the baddies. That and Daisy Duke's fetching collection of hot pants.
The Dukes' theme tune, performed by country music star Waylon Jennings, became another series hallmark. Jennings also provided the cheesy voice-over narration. Taking the same premise for most episodes, this wasn't groundbreaking television but comfortable viewing that gratified its viewers with harmless action, humour and an idyllic view of life in the southern US of A. --Laura Bushell
