MTV to Film 'Dukes of Hazzard' Special

Tuesday, July 05, 2005

COVINGTON, Ga. — The home of the first five episodes of "The Dukes of Hazzard (search)" will host MTV when it comes to film a special on the history of the late 1970s show.

The show will feature the jumping of "General Lee," the Duke boys' car, at Covington's Oxford College — the same spot the car was jumped for the show 26 years ago.

The special is meant to hype "The Dukes of Hazzard" movie, starring Seann William Scott (search), Johnny Knoxville (search) and Jessica Simpson (search), set to be released on Aug. 5.

Travis Bell, president of the General Lee Fan Club and organizer of the annual "Dukes of Hazzard" reunion in Covington, will serve as historian for the 30-minute program, called "Your Movie Show."

You know what I think would be cool? I don't know who they have planned to make the jump, but I think it would be great if they could get Craig Baxley to do it, since he was the one who did the original Oxford College jump 26 years ago.

My second choice would be Corey Eubanks, which is probably who they'll go with since he's jumped a General once a year for the past 3 years at Dukes events.

Thanks for the info, Dale. I gotta comment on something you said earlier:

The jump will be done without the flag (unless the protests prevail). Goes to show how society really does degrade over time. People have no tolerance for "good ol' boys" anymore. Stinking hypocrites.

This is crazy. MTV is afraid of offending somebody with the rebel flag on the car jump? Say what?!

This doesn't make sense in the least, as the rebel flag on the General is visible in Jessica's video. For that matter, it's visible every @#$%& night on CMT when they air the original Dukes eps. Amazingly, there has been no adverse policial consequence to CMT, or to Jessica Simpson.

*paging MTV, HazzardNet paging MTV* MTV, will ya'll PLEASE gitcher heads outta yer rear ends about the flag? Good grits n' gravy, after years of creative acheivements like "Beavis and Butthead" , not to mention videos that could double as soft porn, you're worried about this? Oh my GOD this flag might be objectionable!!!

Hell, what on yer channel ain't?

As I understand it, it is the college that wants the flag removed. MTV had two potential locations, with the college being their first choice. This is the exact location of the first jump, you know "...fightin' the system like a true modern-day Robin Hood..Yeeha!" THAT jump, that exact location.

I'm not sure of MTV's stance on the issue (I think CMT is owned by MTV, anyway), but it's the college that 26 years ago didn't mind having that car fly over Rosco.

Man, that sucks. It also takes the air outta one of my better rants. Ah well.....

I'd say that without the flag on the car - it's not worth the gain of the location. To me, there is more authenticity in the event, if the car actually looks like the General Lee in full uniform. (Oops, the car name might offend somebody, better omit those letters on the roof too. )
