Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In "Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Duke," Luke falls victim to a toxin that alters his personality. He becames a ''complete'' bastard (even by the standards of the show's worst villains), from being rude, disrespectful and petty to being a masher, a thief, a vandal and willing to (literally) kill Bo for getting in his way.

* WitnessProtection: One episode featured a newcomer whose land Boss Hogg wanted to buy. The problem was that the newcomer was under the trope.

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 adaptation 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!)

%% AbsenteeActor is Trivia and has been moved to the trivia subpage.



* ActorAllusion: Rosco is occasionally shown with a fishing pole. Apparently he is an avid fisherman, just like the actor portraying the role (James Best).
** Morgan Woodward parodies his most famous role,[[CoolHandLuke Boss Godfrey]], in "Cool Hands, Bo and Luke"



* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: In one episode, Boss Hogg makes a deal to get any money in a trunk, while the local museum gets everything else. The money turns out to be Confederate money, which Boss and the show treat as if it were worthless. While of course genuine Confederate currency is no longer legal tender, it can in good condition be highly collectible and ''very'' valuable, and if Boss were careful in his selling, he would make several times the face value of the bills.

* WrittenInAbsence: Both in Season 2. Sonny Shroyer (Enos) was missing for two episodes due to appendicitis (they gave Enos appendicitis as well), while James Best (Rosco) left for a while due to a contract dispute (so they shipped Rosco off to the academy for re-certification). Also, John Schneider was absent for an episode because he was filming a TV movie (this was before the great merchandising dispute in season five), so Bo spent a weekend with the Marine Corps.

** Several of Rosco and Cletus' goofy, cartoonish car crashes would in fact seriously injure (if not kill) the driver. Naturally, they [[MadeOfIron are always unscathed]].
