* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first few episodes of season 1 have a bit of this, due to a somewhat more "adult" tone (see LighterAndSofter, below) as well as the fact that they're shot on location in Georgia, so the countryside looks completely different as well as such locations as the Duke farmhouse, Cooter's garage, the courthouse and jail, etc.

* IKnowMortalKombat: The 1998 film ''SpeciesII'' has a non-video game example referencing this show. A clone being experimented on escapes from a government research laboratory, stealing a military humvee in the process. When asked how she learned how to drive, one of the scientists working on her explains that her favorite show is ''The Dukes of Hazzard.''

A theatrical [[TheFilmOfTheSeries motion picture]] version of the series was made in 2005 starring Seann William Scott as Bo, Johnny Knoxville as Luke, Music/JessicaSimpson as Daisy, Music/WillieNelson as Uncle Jesse, and Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg, with a 2007 made-for-TV prequel. Two made-for-TV [[ReunionShow reunion movies]] with the original cast were also made, in 1997 and 2000. (What's often forgotten these days is that the original series was itself a loose SpiritualAdaptation of a 1975 theatrical film called ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonrunners Moonrunners]]'', which featured essentially the same premise and the same characters under different names...or, in the case of Uncle Jesse and Sheriff Rosco Coltrane, the ''same'' names!)

* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: "Luke Duke"? Come on. Once or twice on the show his name elicited comments by strangers. In his mostly positive review of the series, TVGuide's Robert [=McKenzie=] ended with the statement "You don't expect much wisdom from a boy named Luke Duke." (His name was actually "Lucas" and "Luke" was just a nickname.)

** Enos is plagued by a strong sense of duty. He's a deputy, and sworn to uphold the law. Unfortunately for him, Boss Hogg controls the law. At times, one has to wonder if his goofing up isn't at least somewhat intentional as a way of helping the Dukes. Especially considering that he was able to become the head of the Los Angeles SWAT team.
** What's more, Enos is never viewed by the Dukes themselves as being one of Boss Hogg's cronies. They realize that he's just doing his job and is simply too honest to be a part of anything crooked that Boss has come up with. Even when he's chasing them, they hold no malice towards him. In fact, they consider him to be probably the most honest man in the County and -they say it out loud more than once- the only ''real'' law in Hazzard. Whenever they need actual help from the law, it's Enos that they turn to.
** The fact that Enos grew up with Bo and Luke and has a huge crush on Daisy also means that he's very reluctant to harm the Dukes, and makes it hard for them to view him as an enemy.
