Fast Cars, Moonshiners and a bunch of wacky adventures- Dukes of Hazzard became a pop-culture icon almost immediately, who’s popularity continued to grow exponentially throughout the years. As kids we dreamed of jumping the General Lee over hay bales and barns, running from the law and just causing a good old ruckus which translated instead into bike jumps, wheelies and lots of skimmed knees and bruises. This piece of our childhood, that ran for 7 seasons, was never meant to go past one season but as we take a look back, we can remember why it was so awesome in the first place and maybe learn some new things you didn’t know about the Duke boys shenanigans.
It Was Based on a Movie
