The Dukes is an animated series which ran on CBS in 1983 based directly on the popular live-action television series The Dukes of Hazzard.

Plot

This Saturday morning cartoon featured the Duke boys and their cousin Daisy in an automobile race around the world against Boss Hogg, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane, and Rosco's dog Flash in a duel for the prize money which the Dukes hope to use to keep the family farm from being foreclosed by Boss Hogg. Actually, Boss Hogg wants the money and the land for himself so he alongside Rosco and Flash plan various schemes to keep the Dukes from winning. Most of the adventures are read from a post card by Uncle Jesse Duke to his pet raccoon Smokey.

The first season fell during the period of the live-action show's infamous replacement of the regular Duke boys with "clones", Coy and Vance Duke, after the actors playing Bo and Luke walked out over a dispute about royalties owed to them. Thus, the first season of this animated series featured Coy and Vance. Bo and Luke eventually replaced Coy and Vance in Season 2 Episode 1 (14): "Boss O'Hogg and the Little People." This episode also featured a new introduction and voice over that reflected the change in characters. The series followed no particular logical geographic path; for instance, consecutive episodes feature appearances in Venice, Morocco, London, Greece, India, Uzbekistan, Hong Kong, and Scotland. Furthermore, another inconsistency was that one of the original premises of The Dukes of Hazzard was that Bo and Luke were on probation, which would seemingly preclude them (but not Coy or Vance) from leaving the state of Georgia, much less the United States.

Production

The show was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with future sister company Warner Bros. Television, producer of the live-action series.

Syndication history

Although it is among the many Hanna-Barbera series owned by Time Warner, The Dukes has never been seen on Cartoon Network nor its sister channel Boomerang, despite the fact that both channels are also owned by Time Warner.
