* TooSoon: Don't expect to see this on television again any time soon after the Charleston church massacre perpetrated by white supremacist and Confederate sympathizer Dylann Storm Roof.

* TooSoon: Don't expect to see this on television again any time soon after the Charleston church massacre perpetrated by white supremacist and Confederate sympathizer Dylann Storm Roof. The outpouring of white nationalism from the alt. right, which includes both confederate sympathizers and neo-Nazis, two years later overshadowed the charm of the show's southern pride even further.

Added DiffLines:

** Most of the cast of the film doesn't look back fondly on it. Seann William Scott said he enjoyed filming it and is still friends with his castmates (particularly Johnny Knoxville), but didn't like the final product. Even his family was embarrassed for him when he invited them to the film's premiere.

* DuelingShows: Part of the ratings decline during the second half of the series run was attributed to the debut of ''Series/KnightRider''. While not airing directly against each other, both shows vied for the attention of a largely younger audience with an interest in souped up cars. As a result producers began to increase stunt and jump sequences featuring the General Lee. The rivalry between the series was played up in a satirical cross over story between the two shows in a 1983 issue of Cracked magazine.

** 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 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.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: In July 2015, two weeks after Dylann Roof was arrested in the killings of nine African Americans at a church in Charleston, S.C. (after which, 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 [[http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2015/07/01/tv-land-pulls-reruns-dukes-hazzard/ pulled reruns of the show off its schedule]], effective immediately. It is unknown when, or if, the show will return in the future.

* ActorAllusion: In one of the ''Bandit'' Creator/ActionPack {{Made For TV Movie}}s (based on the ''Smokey and the Bandit'' films) John Schneider plays a sheriff going after Bandit who seems to have gotten a passing grade (though not all As) from the Roscoe P. Coltrane driving academy.

* ActorAllusion: 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"

* WrittenInAbsence: In season five, it's explained that Bo and Luke left to join NASCAR.

to:

* 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. In season five, it's explained that Bo and Luke left to join NASCAR.
This list shows the last 10 events of 43. Show all.
