The Dukes of Hazzard - "Yee-Harrggh!!"

Bo, Luke, Daisy and the good ole General Lee feature on the front of this American "Dukes of Hazzard" bubble gum packet - copyright 1980 WARNER BROS. INC.

Bo and Luke Duke aimed to keep Hazzard County the sort of place that good ole boys would want to live in.

The Dukes of Hazzard began on the BBC in 1979, which was also its American debut year. In 1980, the Beeb placed the show in its Saturday teatime slot and it became a legend.
