  1. Yes...I chose my username from the 1977-78 Dodge Monacos used in the show (for Rosco’s, Enos’, & Cletus’ patrol cars), although 1977-78 Plymouth Furys were used as well. A 1977 Dodge Monaco was also the “signature” car used by Fred Dryer in the cop show Hunter, which I’m also a fan of & am a member of a fan-site for it. So, I’ve used ‘Monaco’ as part of a username before, too.
  2. Yeah, I’m not wild about the Dukes fighting amongst themselves, either. I realize it happens in most families at one time or another...but I was always glad when they worked it out and moved onto another episode where the Dukes were fighting bad-guys from outside Hazzard, together.
  3. I love every episode, too (except for the alien one ). I liked Boy’s Best Friend, and the majority of the episode I enjoyed. It was just the bad voice-dubbing that I found strange.
  4. Cartoon characters can sometimes be voiced by different people/sexes/ages, etc...as they’re fake & often supposedly humorous characters to begin with. But, when it comes to real life and a real-person episode of something, if you’re going to dub someone’s voice you’d hope it’d sound halfway realistic. But, the voice they used for Boy’s Best Friend was weird & creepy...like an old lady trying to sound like a child/little boy.
  5. True...but the voice used for a cartoon character worked for that. The voice used for Danny Cooksey’s character in the “Dukes” episode did not!
  6. Possibly...but either way, I still don’t understand why they dubbed Danny Cooksey’s voice with the weird one they did? It sounds creepy...like it’s an adult trying to do a little girl’s voice, but they use it for a little boy. It does not come across believable or “right”. I’ve seen/heard Danny in many other things back then, and he didn’t have a “bad” or unusable voice, so not sure why the dubbing was done?
  7. Adding a side-note: this episode also guest-starred Richard Bull (‘Nels Oleson’ from Little House On the Prairie)...and he’s not the loveable Nels in this!
  8. Recently got the complete series of the crime/detective show Mannix, starring Mike Connors. It was on from 1967-1975 (same years/seasons as Ironside, which ironically I just got done watching, as well). I’ve never seen Mannix until now, so I’m enjoying watching it for the first time! But, watching a late first season episode from spring of 1968 (“Delayed Action”), and Peggy Rea (‘Lulu Hogg’) is guest-starring! Here’s a scene-clip I found online:
  9. They referred to it as Hazzard Cab Co. in the episode, I believe...but the decal on the side says Tisdale Cab Co. I’ve never really noticed that before.
  10. True, but it’s fun recognizing it...Hazzard or not. And we can always appreciate & enjoy it being showcased in almost every episode of DOH!
  11. I love & have Charlie’s Angels, Dallas, and A-Team, too—as well as Wonder Woman, that I discovered the Hazzard square in an episode, lol! I wonder how many other TV shows have used the square over the years?
  12. Awesome trivia! I did know about Carter being in the 05 movie (although I haven’t seen it & don’t want to), but didn’t realize the premiere dates of the two episodes were the same!
  13. Awesome...I thought I recognized the courthouse, gazebo, and even a couple of the store buildings around the square! “W.W.” was also filmed at Warner Bros Studios, so it wasn’t too big a leap to think the same square could have been used in both. That’s hilarious about the woman you knew also named Linda Carter (with an ‘i’)...bet she got teased about the name a lot (although actress Lynda is obviously with a ‘y’), especially back in the W.W. days! Lynda Carter still has one of her W.W. suits/costumes, and according to her can still fit into it!
  14. This possibly might have been stated before if it’s true, but I think a 1979 episode of Wonder Woman (season 3’s “The Starships Are Coming”) used the ‘Hazzard Square’ (Warner Bros. set...not the real-life Georgia location) as a small town Diana Prince/W.W. has to go to, to investigate UFO sightings/abductions. FYI...this comment has nothing to do with the town square, but if you happen to watch this episode, it’s pretty bad...Lynda Carter was amazing as Wonder Woman (and other episodes are WAY better), but the plot of this one is beyond stupid! Anyway, the square looks like the Hazzard one to me, but I could be wrong...some small town square sets used in TV shows back then, look kind of alike to me.
  15. Yeah, they used more than one year/model of several “Dukes” character’s cars...Uncle Jesse’s truck did use different years, starting with the 68–which you never really saw up close or much of. They then switched to a 73, and I believe eventually a 77. Daisy started out with a 74 Plymouth Roadrunner, but eventually they switched to a 71 Plymouth Satellite—with the Roadrunner paint scheme. Then she had a new 80 Jeep, but a couple later year models were eventually used as well. IMCDb has a pretty in depth “Dukes” page & good listing of the vehicles used on the show. Christopher Connelly played Norman Harrington for the entire original Peyton Place run, and in the reunions. He did star in some other movies and guest-starred on several other TV shows later on. Cool about the CHiPs episode—don’t remember that one, I’ll have to check it out sometime! Sadly he died in 1988 of lung cancer...lifelong smoker.
  16. Awesome!! As stupid as this sounds...I did remember seeing in the cast list before that Catherine Bach (Daisy) was in it briefly, but forgot to mention it! Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing on Dallas) was also in it. However, I am going through P.P. from pilot episode through the reunion movies—as this is my first time! I’m currently in Season 4 (one more season after), so I’ve not gotten to or seen either reunion movie yet. I just scanned a few minutes into each one to make sure the DVD plays, when I first got the set, and this must have been the reunion I was thinking of. That’s cool about possibly Uncle Jesse’s truck being used in a scene...wonder if it was a truck on the studio lot, and was still there when Dukes came? Of course an identical one would have been originally used in Georgia, before moving to the Warner Bros lot in CA...so maybe the truck in the P.P. reunion was just a coincidence? Thanks, HossC, for all the info!
  17. Adding to my above post...out of curiosity, I wonder where the first P.P. reunion movie (“Murder in Peyton Place” 1977) was filmed? Im on my cellphone at the moment and I can’t seem to find filming locations for it on IMDB. I’m sure it was probably not the “Dukes” Warner Bros. set as this was a couple years before “Dukes”...but I’d be interested to know if possible. It’s probably on YouTube as well, but it’s late and I’m going to bed, lol!
  18. I love and enjoy a lot of different shows from all decades, mostly crime/cop/mystery, but some action adventure ones too, as well as prime time dramas. So Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, Dynasty, etc...are ones I like. I know, I’m weird! I’m currently going through the original Peyton Place series for the first time, and the set I got also includes the reunion movies (there were 2) & the original theatrical movies (based on the original novels). Anyway, I’ve actually not seen the reunion movie “Next Generation” yet myself...I only quickly scanned the DVD it’s on when I first got it. And I swear the town square, gazebo, court house, etc...looked just like the Warner Bros. set of Hazzard (not the Dukes original Georgia locations). But, it perhaps is not, and they fully used the Texas location...as I have read they filmed some of it in Texas, and veteran actress Dorothy Malone (who was one of the main stars of P.P.) was thrilled, as she had retired to Texas & it wasn’t too far to travel to film the reunion movie...so the Texas town does make sense.
  19. I’m doing okay...surviving the “pandemic” I guess! Yeah, I’ve seen the Hazzard square in some other things...I think it was also used in the drama Gilmore Girls. I never watched that show, but I think I read once it was the same square...just some buildings changed & revamped some since the “Dukes” days. It’s still around I think, so it’s probably been used in lots of things over the years.
  20. I’d have to always go with the General Lee ...but I’d still love to have Daisy’s Roadrunner and/or Satellite (my 2nd favorite car next to the General), Uncle Jesse’s truck, Boss’ Caddy Convertible, and Rosco’s Plymouth Fury! If I had money I’d have one of each...as sort of a real life collection! But sadly I can only afford the diecast models—and even those weren’t cheap!
  21. This may have been mentioned before, but I think the (1964-1969) Peyton Place series reunion movie in 1985 (I believe called Next Generation...as it was an attempt of a new P.P. revival series but that never came about) used the “Hazzard” town square. The original P.P. town square was similar to what the Hazzard one was in Dukes, but it had probably been dismantled after that show went off the air in 1969. So, in 85 right after (sadly) Dukes was cancelled I’m sure the town square was available for use.
  22. Saw this on Facebook...someone has Uncle Jesse at heart!
  23. I’m currently going through the 70s sci-fi action series The Six Million Dollar Man, starring Lee Majors (The Bionic Woman will follow), and an episode I watched earlier this evening guest starred a young Rick Hurst (going by Richard Hurst at the time)! The episode was a season 2 episode called “The Midas Touch” from fall of 1974. Hurst played a somewhat goofy (imagine that ) bad guy named Conners. Here’s a pic from the episode:
  24. Interesting! I know in reality that’s where Dodge Charger headlights were back then...behind flip-up covers. But I never really remembered them being up and/or on in the show, and I never thought to look at the General Lee model for that. Cool!
  25. My General Lee is an Auto World Silver Screen model too (as is Daisy’s Satellite)...but my General’s headlight covers have always been closed. I’ve never thought to see if they open...I’ll have to check that out.
