    Found on FB (natch) with these facts about the show. Most interesting were that Cooter, Ben Jones (the scruffy looking) mechanic served in Congress from 1989 to 1993, Boss Hog Sorrel Brookes was a Classically trained actor and this one about James Best
    Read on... interesting facts about the show.
    Bet cha dem Duke boys wouldn't have messed with ole' Roscoe if they knew he was a BB.

    I've read before that the show was based on a Rushing family. Made me wonder if they were some outlaw relatives. Then I thought of Catherine Bach's character and felt somewhat dirty.

    :lol:

    *puts hand on his shoulder*... hey, you weren't the only one homeboy! :fanboy:

    So glad that she decided to opt out on the mini-skirt and went with the cut off jeans. MUCH better fashion decision making there.

    I used to think archery was stupid until I saw this show and realized how many different jams some good archery skills can solve. If I had a nickle for every high speed shine run I've survived because I was able to pop the tires on the car chasing me...

    I rewatched the series as an adult when they released it on dvd. In the first (maybe second epidsode) the Duke boys even make a joke about wishing that Daisy wasn't their cousin. There were alot of inuedndo jokes that I never caught as a kid.

    Some things as an addolescent just stick with you...Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke, Linda Carter as Wonder Woman, and Heather Thomas in the Fall Guy as example. good memories :)

    You forgot Heather Locklear on TJ Hooker?
    The big surprise has to be Sorrel Brooke
    5 Languages?! Military intelligence! Would anyone have guessed from the way he played the role?

    That says something about his acting abilities. Which I've always enjoyed from "What's Up Doc?", Fail Safe, to his occasional cameos on M*A*S*H

    One of my favorite lines with him from M*A*S*H (playing General Barker)

    Gen. Barker: You wanna know what you can do about (Maj.) Burns?
    Col. Blake: What's that sir?
    Gen. Barker: Give him a high colonic and send him on a ten-mile hike!
    Trapper John: With full pack!
    Gen. Barker: Nice touch.
