Really great that Warner Bros released this onto DVD finally. Great picture and sound quality also. No special features, just the all the episodes. A must for any serious Dukes of Hazzard fan of any age.

I have bought this DVD set twice before with bootleg copies so it was nice to get the real thing from Warner Brothers and I love watching these episodes! You get Bo, Luke, Coy, Vance, Rosco, Daisy, Boss Hogg, Uncle Jesse, and all the rest! Every Duke fan will love it.

Boss Hogg was really in his element as an expressive and frustrated cartoon character to be sure.

"The Dukes" cartoon series was produced at the time when Tom Wopat and John Schneider were in a contract dispute with the live action series and had sat out the 1982-1983 season. The series producers casted Byron Cherry and Christopher Mayer as cousins Coy and Vance to replace Bo and Luke in that season's episodes. The contract dispute probably was the reason why the cartoon series premiered in Spring 1983 on CBS instead of the Fall 1982 season. Wopat and Schneider settled their dispute and returned to the live action "Dukes" series for the Fall 1983 season and for the final 7 cartoon "Dukes" episodes aired in Fall 1983 and Cherry and Mayer remained with the series as supporting co-stars for that season before they were written off the series.

The stories usually began at the Dukes Farm with Uncle Jessie reading the latest letter sent by Daisy from the foreign locale where the day's episode took place with his pet raccoon Smokey keeping him company. The action then switches to that foreign setting with the Duke Boys and Daisy in the General Lee would be racing Boss Hogg, Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane, and Flash the dog in Boss's Cadillac convertible. Boss Hogg would play the cheating Dick Dastardly role in this updated version of Wacky Races while Sheriff Roscoe would chuckle and snicker like Muttley when Boss's plans to cheat always backfired. The Dukes would usually meet someone in trouble in their various foreign country visits and would help them out with some cool stunt driving and racing while Boss Hogg might team up with various foreign bad guys to stop the Dukes and whoever they may be helping.

Fun show although the animation of the General Lee racing and jumping over obstacles and Boss Hogg's team was in the typical 1980s-era Hanna-Barbera limited style. The original live-action series cast members' voices added a lot to the series.

Love having the show, but disappointed in the sound. I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch of made to order DVDs or what, but the discsi have seem to have sound issues. Right away from the first episode, the music and sound effects are so strong that they all but drown outa y of the actual voices. The first episode starts off with Jesse narrating, but I could hardly hear what he said over the background music. If the voice levels were set higher (at least higher than the music), I'd gladly give 5 stars.

I'll begin by saying it's debatable whether this belongs with the 7 seasons of "Dukes of Hazzard." But that said, it's really worth giving a chance to. The voices are all the same, so that would lean towards the answer yes.

This cartoon revolves around the Duke boys ad Daisy racing Boss Hogg, Rosco, and Flash around the world. The Dukes want the prize money to save the farm, and of course 'greedy old boss wants the reward money and the farm for himself. So he's been a cheatin every foot of the way.'

There are 20 episodes. The first 13 are with Coy and Vance, and in the last 7, Bo and Luke return. Of course, there is no explanation as to why Coy and Vance disappeared.

Some people may be upset about the fact that there is no geographical logic. One day they are in France; then they are east in Switzerland; then they are back west in Ireland.

There is a lot of racing, but of course they stop a lot and often become involved in some criminal activity that just happens to be going on in the area. In 'Dukes of Venice,' Coy and Vance have to solve the mystery of a stolen artifact. In "Dukes In Hollywood," Bo and Luke find themselves in the middle of a corrupt movie set.

Rosco's dog Flash has some great time in the spotlight. In "Morocco Bound" and "The Dukes in Hong Kong" she saves everyone.

Rosco and Boss especially keep this cartoon going. Boss is as bad as ever, but he is so hilarious that we can't help but like him. In the absence of Enos, Rosco is notably more honest. In one admirable moment, he rebukes Boss because one of his schemes to delay the Dukes in the race could result in them being hurt.

The arguably best episode is "A Dickens of a Christmas" where it's Christmas Eve and Christmas spirits visit Boss. Rosco's dinner with Flash is especially memorable, and Boss has a beautiful moment of Christmas spirit.

A lot of hard core DOH fans may not consider this official DOH material. But in my opinion, it's really worth at least giving a chance to.

I was born well after this show ended. I grew up watching re-runs of the live action show on TNN back in the 90's. I bought this set for my nine year old daughter and she absolutely loves it.

Regardless of what people think, this is a clean, good family cartoon. Don't hesitate to pick it up. It won't set the wallet back too much and the whole family can enjoy it.
