** They were also too keen on Warner Bros. mandating the use of miniature work to make the car sequences ever more spectacular in the later seasons. Neither were the stunt personnel.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsenteeActor:
** James Best and Ben Jones each boycotted parts of season 2 due to disputes with the producers, while John Schneider and Tom Wopat missed most of season 5 as contract holdouts. Catherine Bach doesn't appear in season 3's "To Catch a Duke".
** Even the General Lee is missing from one episode! Granted, that episode ("Mary Kaye's Baby") was only the third episode of the show's first season, so the car probably wasn't established enough as a "star" in its own right for its absence to have been noticed by many viewers at the time.
** Averted by John and Tom when the whole cast offered to join their boycott of season 5. Catherine mentioned offering to walk off with the two of them, but they told her not to. According to one source, they said that solving the pay dispute that was the reason they left was "man's work," but another simply said that they knew if all three of them walked, there'd be no show to come back to. Also averted by Denver Pyle and Sorrell Booke, the only cast members to appear in every episode.

* FollowTheLeader: Owes just as much to ''SmokeyAndTheBandit'' as it does to ''Moonrunners''.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: Most of the cast were of the view that the scripts could have been generally better (the writers, in turn, said they were straightjacketed by executive producer Paul Picard's guidelines - that's why, for instance, it almost never gets dark in Hazzard County). Tom Wopat felt the ''cartoon'' had better writing ("Some of them are pretty funny. And the car flies!").

Added DiffLines:

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: In later seasons Sorrell Booke and James Best were often allowed to ad lib once the producers realized the duo's comedic chemistry. Both Best and Booke submitted ideas to the writers, which were almost always used; several of these acts were used in their real-life birthday party package.


Added DiffLines:

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: In July 2015, two weeks after Dylan Roof was arrested in the killings of nine African Americans at a church in Charleston, S.C., and, along with his racist manifestos, photos of him posing with the Confederate flag became public, Warner Bros. stopped licensing Dukes of Hazzard merchandise, including the General Lee (which has a large Confederate flag painted on top). Shortly thereafter, TV Land pulled reruns of the show off its schedule, effective immediately. [http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2015/07/01/tv-land-pulls-reruns-dukes-hazzard/] It is unknown when, or if, the show will return in the future.
This list shows the last 10 events of 30. Show all.
