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.

Added DiffLines:

* FatSuit: In real life, Sorrell Booke was actually much slimmer than Boss Hogg and had to wear padding under his outfit to appear heftier than he really was.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Daisy's main vehicle during the series' run is a Jeep Wrangler. Jeep at the time was owned by independent automaker American Motors (whereas most of the other vehicles shown were produced by Chrysler Corporation). Two years after the series' 1985 conclusion, Chrysler would purchase American Motors; with Jeep remaining one of the company's top performers.

** Jerry Rushing, a real life ex-moonshiner whose reminisces were used as the basis for ''Moonrunners'' (and who had a RealPersonCameo in that film), went on to sue Warner Brothers for developing ''Dukes'' without giving him credit.
