Description Edit | History

The television series The Dukes of Hazzard follows Bo and Luke Duke, two cousins living in a rural part of the fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, with their cousin Daisy and wise old Uncle Jesse, racing around in their customized 1969 Dodge Charger, The General Lee, evading corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg and his inept county sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Bo and Luke had previously been sentenced to probation for illegal transportation of moonshine - their uncle Jesse made a plea bargain to stop brewing moonshine in exchange. As a result, Bo and Luke are not allowed to carry firearms (instead, they often use compound bows, sometimes tipped with dynamite) or to leave Hazzard County (although the exact details of their probation terms vary from episode to episode; sometimes it is implied that they would be jailed for merely crossing the county line; on other occasions, it is shown that they may leave Hazzard as long as they are back within a certain time limit).

Corrupt politician Boss Hogg, who either runs or has fingers in just about everything in Hazzard County (and whose exact powers, much like the terms of the Duke boys' probation, vary between episodes) is forever angry with the Dukes, in particular Bo and Luke, for eternally foiling his crooked scams and is always looking for ways to get them out of the picture so that his plots have a chance of succeeding. Many episodes revolve around Boss trying to engage in an illegal scheme with criminal associates. Some of these are get-rich-quick schemes, though many others affect the financial security of the Duke farm, which Boss has long wanted to acquire for nefarious reasons. Other times, Boss hires known criminals from out of town to do his dirty work for him, and often tries to frame Bo and Luke for various crimes such as bank robbery (thus resulting in imprisonment and allowing Boss easily to acquire the Duke farm). Bo and Luke always seem to stumble over Boss's latest scheme, sometimes by curiosity, and often by sheer luck, and put it out of business.

Owing to their fundamentally good natures, the Dukes often wind up helping Boss Hogg, albeit begrudgingly. More than once Boss is targeted by former associates who are either seeking revenge or have turned against him after a scheme has unravelled in one way or another - including Boss's greedy nature; Rosco's bumbling; the criminals simply outsmarting the two; or their consciences coming to the surface. Sometimes criminals who are even more crooked and ruthless than Boss come to town. Sheriff Rosco also finds himself in trouble more than once. On such occasions, Bo and Luke usually have to rescue their adversaries as an inevitable precursor to defeating the bad guys.
