Enos Attracts Pretty Girls!

Daisy Duke has competition! This pretty gal in the photo is Alyssa, the 2011 Rock Island County Fair Queen. Unable to resist a man in Hazzard County uniform, she’s seen here with Sonny Shroyer, otherwise known as Deputy Enos Strate, during his appearance in East Moline, Illinois on July 19.  Sonny was accompanied by a General Lee and a Hazzard County patrol car. It was all part of “Dukes of Hazzard Night”  at the Quad City Speedway.

Sonny’s a genuine good ol’ boy, and his charm lights up a room wherever he goes. If you didn’t get a chance to meet him yet, you’ll have another opportunity at Hazzard Homecoming on August 13 & 14 in Sperryville, Virgina. More on that soon!

Covington Car Show to Benefit Troops

Have a General Lee, a Hazzard County patrol car, or a classic car you’d like to show off? There’s an outfit in Georgia who would love to see you.

Operation Sandbox is a non-profit group that makes care packages for our troops serving overseas. This group benefits by an upcoming car show called “Hazzard County Supports Our Troops”, in Covington, GA, on July 30 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

There is no registration fee. The event is free to the public. There is no advance registration for car owners, just come with your car and sign in before 4:00 p.m.  

Here’s how the show benefits the troops. Instead of cash fees or admissions, donations of food and hygiene products are requested for care packages. Food suggestions include single-serving drink mixes, microwavable mac n’ cheese cups,  microwave popcorn,  trail mixes, dried fruit snacks, gum, beef jerky, and similar items. Hygiene product suggestions are travel-sized shampoos/conditioners and all the usual travel-sized stuff you’d need yourself on a trip.

It’s appropriate to have a Dukes of Hazzard themed car show in Covington. This area of Georgia is where The Dukes of Hazzard began; the first five episodes of the first season were filmed here. The Covington town square is recognizable to any long-time Dukes fan, and General Lees are a natural complement to the scenery.

If you can’t make the show, consider supporting Operation Sandbox with a donation, or even a card with kind words for a military service member. Visit their website for more information about what they do.  Our gratitude goes out to all of those who are serving our country.

Dukes of Hazzard on CMT Update

CMT continues the late-night airings of the Dukes of Hazzard, but this week they’ve shook up the broadcast days. No Dukes Monday or Tuesday, but you’ll have Dukes Wednesday through Friday, with a double feature o’ Dukes on Thursday.

Set your TiVo, or pull an all-nighter, and watch the following episodes:

The Canterbury Crock
Wed, July 06, 1:00 a.m. Eastern

Mrs. Daisy Hogg, & Double Dukes
Thurs, July 07, 1:00 a.m + 2:00 a.m. Eastern

Diamonds in the Rough
Fri,  July 08, 1:00 a.m. Eastern

Notable in this week’s episodes: “The Canterbury Crock” features one of the zaniest chase scenes in the Dukes of Hazzard series, where everyone switches cars and then the chase runs backwards. If you’ve never seen Rosco drive the General Lee, you won’t want to miss this episode. Does Rosco crash the General? Watch and find out!

The episode “Diamonds in the Rough” was directed by James Best, ol’ Rosco P. Coltrane himself. Does the episode itself crash? You’ll have to watch and decide on your own!

We should also mention that in the episode “Mrs. Daisy Hogg,”  Daisy Duke has another romance go completely down the tubes. You’d think a girl this pretty would have better luck landing a man.

Meanwhile, we continue to hope that CMT will air The Dukes of Hazzard during a family viewing hour. So far, they’re airing the Dukes very randomly and the pleas of fans have fallen on deaf ears.  We are making our own appeal to CMT concerning this and we’ll let you know if we get a response.

Speed Into Summer with The Dukes of Hazzard!

Officially, summer just started, but it already feels like it’s flying by! One thing you don’t want to skip this summer is the good ol’ fashioned family road trip, especially when you can meet some of the original cast members of The Dukes of Hazzard! Here’s a quick list of what’s going on and who’s gonna be there:

July 01 – Rick Hurst, otherwise known as Deputy Cletus Hogg, will be at Cooter’s Place in Gatlinburg TN!

July 02 – Catherine Bach, Daisy Duke herself, will be at Cooter’s Place in Gatlinburg TN!

July 04 – Ben “Cooter” Jones will be at…no, not Cooter’s Place! Fooled ya. He’ll be at the community 4th of July shindig in Sperryville VA!

July 08-10 – John Schneider, known around here as Bo Duke, will be at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, PA!

July 16 – Sonny Shroyer, a/k/a Deputy Enos Strate, will be at the Johnny Lightning collectibles shindig in Dyersville, IA!

July 30-31 – John Schneider will be at the Marilla Car, Truck & Cycle Show in Marilla, NY!

Aug 13-14 – James Best, ol’ Rosco P.Coltrane, makes his only summer appearance scheduled thus far, at the Hazzard Homecoming in Sperryville, VA! Hazzard Homecoming is the big Dukes shindig of the summer, organized by Ben Jones and the lovely Miss Alma. Catherine Bach, Sonny Shroyer, and Rick Hurst will also be joining Ben Jones at this event. This is the place to see a General Lee, and to enjoy bluegrass music, all surrounded in the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

*UPDATE*  John Schneider will also be at Hazzard Homecoming but *ONLY* on Sunday, August 14th!

What about Tom Wopat, of Luke Duke fame? He’s given his regards – and time – to Broadway! You can see him in the Tony-award winning musical, “Catch Me if You Can.”

Note, many of the above events, such as Hazzard Homecoming, and the car shows, require an admission fee. We will be adding more event details and links to our Forums section for each cast member. Also, please be aware that cast members generally do not give “free” autographs. An autograph may be included if you make a merchandise purchase from them, but if you bring an item of your own to have signed, be prepared to pay. Cast members each have their own rules n’ deals on these matters, and generally reserve the right to restrict their autographs to approved merchandise.

Christmas 2010 is “01” to Remember!

Odds are, if you’re a Dukes of Hazzard fan, there’s something Dukes-related under your tree this year. “The Dukes” cartoon DVD could be one of the gifts with your name on it!

Or maybe it’s the Complete Dukes of Hazzard series on DVD, which, believe it or not, is currently sold out per Amazon.com. (Amazon is still accepting orders and will ship as new stock is available.) Add this to how quickly the first 400 autographed copies of “The Dukes” DVD went, and one thing is clear. Nothin’ says Christmas like the Dukes of Hazzard!

Awright, we know Christmas has a much deeper meaning. Look for that in our next post. For now, we’re speakin’ to those of ya’ll who haven’t finished your shopping, don’t have a whole lot of moonshine money to spend, and need a quickie.

As in, a quick gift idea! Stuff somebody’s e-stocking, or maybe your own, with The Dukes of Hazzard episodes on demand from Amazon.com! At only $1.99 a pop, this is a great way to use an Amazon Gift Card. Currently, episodes from seasons 1 and 2 are available in you-pick-em varieties for $1.99 each. Or, download the entire season for $14.99.

Delivery time ain’t a problem when you’re downloading! Amazon Gift Cardscan be immediately emailed to your lucky recipient, and the whole thing is faster than the General Lee taking a shortcut during an overland road race with the farm at stake.

New Orders For The Dukes Cartoon Now Accepted!

Late last week, The Dukes cartoon dvd became unavailable on the Warner Bros Shop website. We asked one of our contacts about it and it was confirmed to be sold out. However, we found out later it was only the limited edition autographed copies that were sold out. Today, the website was updated to offer The Dukes Animated Series dvd (without autograph) and they are now accepting orders again. Yeeehaaa! The price has been reduced to $24.95. We have received and watched ours already and we’ve gotta say, it’s worth every penny!

Order your copy of The Dukes Animated Series dvd in time for Christmas. Orders over $50 qualify for free ground shipping.

The Dukes Animated Series DVD is SOLD OUT!

In just a few short weeks, the limited run of The Dukes Animated Series DVD is sold out. The Dukes cartoon proved to be quite popular with fans and is no longer available on the Warner Brothers site. We’ve put in an email to our contacts to clarify if The Dukes Animated Series dvd will be available in the future or if it’s gone forever. Hopefully, it’ll be back. In the meantime, if you want a copy, your best bet is to keep an eye on our Dukes of Hazzard auctions to see if someone puts theirs up for sale.

Once we have more information, we’ll let y’all know!

UPDATE: See this post on The Dukes Animated Series for clarification. The dvd is available again!
