Summary of Season 1 (1979) - 5 discs

Good times with the good ol' boys! The "General Lee" is tanked up and ready to peel rubber with Bo Duke (John Schneider) at the wheel and brother Luke (Tom Wopat) riding shotgun in this first season of episodes from the hit television show. Bo and Luke continuously run afoul of bumbling commissioner Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) and his assistant, Sheriff Coltrane (James Best). Catherine Bach co-stars as cousin Daisy Duke -- a vision in short shorts!

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that it's no accident that this longtime favorite has hung around long enough to entertain a whole new generation of fans. The show's lovably indomitable heroes prove time and again that, in Hazzard County, corrupt businessmen and inept cops are no match for them and their orange cohort, the General Lee. While the humor is silly (and sometimes is at the expense of exaggerated Southern stereotypes) and the plots are predictable (with all loose ends neatly tied up by the hour's end), ubiquitous car chase scenes help ensure that the show never gets boring. The only real eyebrow-raisers are some characters' use of guns -- although the shots are laughingly poor and never manage to hit anyone -- and Daisy Duke's skimpy attire, including the famous high-cut shorts that were named after her character. It's all pretty tame, though, which is why we're giving it an "on" rating.

Sexual Content

The main female character wears skimpy tops and provocatively high-cut jean shorts that leave nothing to the imagination. Adults often engage in playful flirting, and occasionally there's some kissing.


Episodes almost always include a car crash or two, but no one's ever seriously hurt. Law enforcement officials carry handguns and often shoot out windows or tires of cars. Some characters also use bows and flaming arrows to ignite the occasional building. Fistfights are common, and the players sometimes use nearby items (chairs, beer bottles) during the scuffles. But aside from some bumps and bruises, no one suffers lasting injury.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Helping people and doing the right thing are major themes here. Contains lots of stereotypes about the South.


Dukes merchandise is available on the toy shelves.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The favorite hang-out is a bar, and overage characters drink beer when they're there (and occasionally when they're not).
