The Dukes of Hazzard
The Dukes of Hazzard is a popular American television series that ran from 1979 to 1985. The show centred around the ‘Duke Boys’ – cousins Bo and Luke Duke – who drove around Hazzard County in their iconic customised car known as the General Lee. Other Dukes included female cousin Daisy and family patriarch Uncle Jesse. Opposing the Dukes were County Commissioner Boss Hogg and his Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Almost 150 episodes were broadcast during its original run as well as spin-offs, films, toys, video games and a wide range of other merchandise.
