Dukes of Hazzard Screen Test

Ever wonder how it looked when John Schneider and Tom Wopat became Bo Duke and Luke Duke for the first time? Here’s an early look at The Dukes of Hazzard, through a screen test in 1978.  While this exact scene never shows up in an episode, the plot elements sound familiar to “Daisy’s Song.”  You’ll also notice a little more cussing and a slightly edgier feel, which was true to the first few episodes.

This screen test is part of the Bonus Features on The Dukes of Hazzard Season Two DVD set.

Dukes of Hazzard for Night Owls

Or for early risers…like, real early. CMT is broadcasting “The Dukes of Hazzard” on weeknights at 1:00 a.m.   Don’t they realize farmers get up early, but not that early? We’re not sure why a family-friendly show like The Dukes of Hazzard is in the same time slot as most infomercials, but it doesn’t bode well.

Many Dukes of Hazzard fans are young viewers and their entire families. It’s one of the few shows on television that you can sit your child in front of and not worry about what they’re going to see or hear.  We hope CMT restores the Dukes of Hazzard to an appropriate time slot that would serve the traditional audience of the program.

Check your local listings for the latest CMT schedules.  And keep your fingers crossed.

Paul R. Baxley 1923-2011

It was only a month ago that the HazzardNet community expressed condolences on the passing of Peggy Rea. It is with sadness again that we offer condolences to the friends and family of Paul R. Baxley, the incredible stunt coordinator and stuntman who helped to give the General Lee wings to fly. Paul passed away March 4th at the age of 88. His stunt career spanned several decades and numerous films and television shows.

RIP Paul

In Memoriam

The HazzardNet community wishes to express its condolences to friends and family of Peggy Rea, who played Lulu Hogg on the Dukes of Hazzard. Peggy passed away February 5th. She was 89. Peggy started her acting career back in the 50’s and is best remembered for her role on the Dukes of Hazzard and also on the Waltons.

She will be greatly missed.

Also, with the recent passing of Peggy, HNet Staff was alerted that actress Neva Patterson, who played the memorable character Swamp Molly in the episode of the same name, passed away December 14th, 2010. She was 90. Neva had many memorable roles throughout her lengthy career, perhaps best remembered as Cary Grant’s fiance in “An Affair to Remember.”

 

Another great performer who will be greatly missed.

RIP Peggy and Neva.

Fan O’ the Month!

January is the time of the year that most folks dream of Waikiki Beach but the first Fan Of The Month of 2011 dreams of the beach all year long. If you haven’t already guessed, the latest fan of the month is waikiki23.

Even though waikiki dreams of Hawaii, her roots are practically in Hazzard County considering she was born and grew up an hour from Atlanta. Hmmm, makes ya wonder if she ever ran into any Dukes while she was young.

Waikiki now lives in the wild and wonderful state of West Virginia where she lives in a town very similar to Hazzard. She is relatively new to the HazzardNet, having joined in early October, but she has made a big impact here with all of her great posts, already totalling nearly 600.

Her favorite character is Luke. Don’t tell anybody but Luke was her first crush. She loves his intelligence, level headedness and willingness to fight for his family.

Her favorite episode is the Ghost of the General Lee and her favorite season is four. She has been a fan for six years and loves the Dukes of Hazzard for many reasons, the biggest being (yep, you guessed it) Luke. She also loves the show for the lessons it teaches, especially those bits of wisdom provided by Uncle Jesse. The action and car chases are another reason waikiki is such a big fan.

Her favorite thing about the HazzardNet is the good folks here. I bet they remind her of many of the characters. She loves all the threads but her favorites are trivia and the one word song title.

Her top three goals in life are to get married someday, own a home and learn to play the piano. Her favorite country singers are Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Trace Adkins and Rascal Flatts. She loves the Pittsburgh Steelers, West Virginia Mountaineers, making jewlery, scrapbooking, making quilts and cooking. She loves to write and is a huge fan of the old television show “Emergency”. The show inspired her to go into nursing for awhile but her real dream is to be a firefighter….another noble profession depicted in that old TV classic.

She loves to write and has written numerous fanfics centered around “Emergency” and is just now starting to write Dukes fanfics.

She also has a very interesting hobby that might not surprise you considering her name and love of the warm beach. She collects bottles of sand from famous beaches around the world and has quite an impressive collection.

Speaking of warm and impressive, we’re very impressed with waikiki23 and we sure hope her great posts continue here on the best website on the internet. Warm, thoughtful caring folks like her are what makes this place so awesome!

Congratulations waikiki23 from all of us at HNet!

Happy New Year!

As we race towards 2011,  we can’t help but glance in the mirrors once last time as 2010 falls behind us.

And count the fillings in our teeth.  Was that a rough road, or what?  2010 was a bumpy enough ride to shake everything loose.

Fortunately for Dukes of Hazzard fans, 2010 had its share of good news.

CMT brought the Dukes of Hazzard back on the air.   Warner Bros released “The Dukes” cartoon on DVD.

And here at HazzardNet, we managed to break through a roadblock,  jump the creek, and land on all four wheels.   We collected a few dents and dings along the way, but we’re happy to see Route 2011 ahead.   We’re glad to have you with us for the ride.

Look for our Year End Yap & Wrap Newsletter in the next day or two.  Meantime,  celebrate New Year’s Eve safely, and Happy New Year from all of us at HazzardNet!

Merry Christmas!

On this Christmas Eve,  we send our good wishes to all our friends, neighbors and cousins.  May the warmth and cheer of this special season be with you and your family.    Thank you for being a part of our community.

Merry Christmas, and God bless!

Sincerely, the HazzardNet Staff,


Meadowmufn, MaryAnne and Brian
