The adventures of the fast-drivin', rubber-burnin' Duke boys of Hazzard County.
Sorrell Booke drew inspiration for Boss Hogg's voice and southern accent from that of US Senator Strom Thurmond.
Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane:
Ohhh! That was a *horrendous* crash!
Sherriff Coltrane's first name, in written or printed form, appears variously as either Rosco (the correct spelling) or Roscoe, throughout the series. This may be a deliberate portrayal of the supposed general illiteracy of "Deep Southern" people.
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!"
