Inspired by the very popular CBS live-action series, The Dukes of Hazzard, this animated TV show features the Duke boys and their cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) in a race around the world. In The Dukes, they want to win the prize money to save the family farm. Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke), Sheriff Rosco (James Best), and Rosco’s dog, Flash (Frank Welker), compete with them to ensure that they don’t win so Boss can finally get control of the farm. Each episode is introduced by Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle) and his pet raccoon, Smokey (Frank Welker).
The first season features cousins Coy and Vance Duke (Byron Cherry and Christopher Mayer), the replacements for Bo and Luke that were added to the primetime show when Tom Wopat and John Schneider left during a contract dispute. The latter eventually returned to the live action show and Bo and Luke took over in the cartoon as well. The Dukes of Hazzard’s popularity was on the decline at this point and The Dukes lasted just two seasons and 20 episodes.

This is so cool! I had forgotten about this one!
Cool! I vaguely remember this show back when the Dukes of Hazzard was really popular, but haven’t seen this or even heard about it for many years! Would be fun to watch again!

I loved the actual show. I just barely remember the animated series. Would love to watch this and see how it compares to the live action show.
