Overview

The television series The Dukes of Hazzard follows Bo and Luke Duke, two cousins living in a rural part of the fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, with their cousin Daisy and wise old Uncle Jesse, racing around in their customized 1969 Dodge Charger(History is explained in the the episode "Happy Birthday General Lee), The General Lee, evading corrupt county commissioner Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg and his inept county sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Bo and Luke had previously been sentenced to probation for illegal transportation of moonshine - their uncle Jesse made a plea bargain to stop brewing moonshine in exchange. As a result, Bo and Luke are not allowed to carry firearms (instead, they often use compound bows, sometimes tipped with dynamite) or to leave Hazzard County (although the exact details of their probation terms vary from episode to episode; sometimes it is implied that they would be jailed for merely crossing the county line; on other occasions, it is shown that they may leave Hazzard as long as they are back within a certain time limit; several other technicalities of their probation also came into play at various times).
