** Ditto in Mexico, when the series [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff was very popular]], and it's not so unusual to find someone who has a identical (or similar) replica of the General Lee in Mexican streets. It does help most Mexicans don't get the historical nuance behind the Confederate flag and many Mexicans thought that flag is simply a modification of the regular American flag just for making the car to look really {{Badass}}. In fact, the Confederate flag is so deeply associated in Mexico with the series, that many Mexicans end disturbed when they find the truth behind the historical meaning of it.[[note]]It does help the Confederate flag also works as a cultural GettingCrapPastTheRadar, as waving the regular American flag in Mexican streets is something of a taboo for Mexicans [[UsefulNotes/MexicanAmericanWar for obvious reasons]].[[/note]]

** Several of the show's most memorable (if not critically acclaimed) episodes play upon the premise of Boss and Rosco being so naive and stupid -- Sorrell Booke and James Best convincingly portrayed their respective characters as gullible individuals with the mentality of 10- and 7-year-old boys -- that dangerous criminals are able to easily able to get them to help accomplish their goals. Perhaps the best example of this is "When You Wish Upon a Hogg," where Boss' corrupt nephew, Hughie, uses his insight into his uncle and right-hand stooge to convince them that an old, antique oil lamp contains a genie that can help them get rich and put the Duke boys in prison forever. When Trixie (Hughie's beautiful girlfriend) plays her part perfectly, Boss and Rosco -- both adults who, even with their mentality should know that the "genie in a lamp" idea is just fiction -- take the bait. Bo and Luke, naturally, know that the "genie in a lamp" scheme is fraudulent but Boss and Rosco refuse to reason.
