Dukes of Hazzard 35: Classic 80s comedy celebrates anniversary

See also

The Dukes of Hazzard is 35 years-old today and several adults are remembering their childhood from the 1980s when the comedy aired every Friday night on CBS. WebPro News reports Jan. 27 that the show starred first and foremost, the General Lee race car in addition to two good-looking outlaws and their sexy niece who lived with their Uncle Jessie in the rural south. Bo and Luke Duke were always running from the laughing stock local sheriff -- Rosco and his deputy, Enos.

Boss Hogg was the town's corrupt town commissioner always framing the Duke boys for something which meant Bo and Luke had to do something unlawful to get out of their plights.

The original Duke boys were played by John Schneider and Tom Wopat. Catherine Bach played Daisy Duke. They were part of a show that would later become a pop culture classic in American television. It is hard to believe the Dukes of Hazzard is 35 in 2014.

John Schneider appreciates what his work on the Dukes of Hazzard has done for him, but does not like it when he is automatically associated with being Bo Duke.

“Every time somebody starts out, ‘You know him best from the Dukes of Hazzard,' I just want to strangle them,” said Schneider. “I did a couple of radio interviews recently, and one guy said, ‘We got Bo Duke on the line,’ so there I am, on live radio, and I say, ‘Really? Is that right? That’s who you have on the phone right now? I’ll do ‘yeehaw’ for you later.’”
