James Best also left the series temporarily during season two over a dispute regarding the dressing rooms. He was replaced by Jeff Altman as Hughie Hogg, followed by Clifton James as Lester Crabb, Dick Sargent as Grady Byrd, and James Hampton as Buster Moon. Altman and James were listed as guest star sheriffs, while Byrd and Hampton were actually listed in the opening credits. Dick Sargent as Grady Byrd also was the only one that was Hazzard County's sheriff, twice.
Jefferson Davis 'Boss' Hogg:
Roscoe, arrest them Duke boys!
A main plot point of the series was Bo and Luke's probation, which restricted them from legally leaving Hazzard County. However, when actors Tom Wopat and John Schneider walked off set over salary disputes at the start of Season 5, the characters of Bo and Luke were temporally written off the show and replaced by look-alike cousins Coy Duke (Byron Cherry) and Vance Duke (Christopher Mayer). This move was explained by informing viewers that Bo and Luke had left Hazzard County to race as professional NASCAR drivers. But how could Bo and Luke travel around the country if they were still on probation?
From season two on, an audio stinger of Roscoe's "Coo Coo" was played over the Warner Brothers Television closing logo. In some episodes the audio was of Boss Hogg exclaiming "Them Dukes, them Dukes!"
