Welcome to Episode #21 of the Kibbe and Finnegan show! If you’re new to the show, Mike Finnegan and I have taken our Dukes of Hazzard fandom and turned it into a full fledged automotive podcast Gong Show of sorts, completed with a full episode review from The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s every 40-year-old’s dream, right?
You can find every episode here on The MuscleCar Place and iTunes and Google Play, and from time to time we’ll also be posting video clips and (and even) full shows to Finnegan’s Garage on YouTube. For those of you that want the show on Android but don’t like Google Play….we’re working on it (specifically via Stitcher). For now if you click the “Download” link at the top of this post you’ll be able to stream it on your phone directly. You can also pull the RSS feed as well.

Faithful listeners, it’s time to go for the gold and to take this show to the next level. As you know it’s our goal to make this show the best it can possibly be by taking to a weekly (or even more often) format, adding on live streaming, and – basically – making it into a full blown online radio show. To get there takes sponsorship support though, and to do that we need to show sponsors that our audience is the read deal…and that we’re worth it! That’s where you come on.
On Friday March 17 at 12PM EDT we’re asking you to use your Instagram power and contact @CocaCola to sponsor our show. They need to know that you love the show, want more of it, and will buy Coca Cola products to do it! Think like a sponsor and show them that there’s something in it for them! Use a picture or video of your choice (keep it clean) and use the hashtag #sponsorkibbeandfinnegan and be sure to send them to our Instagram page too: @KibbeandFinneganShow!
Dukes of Hazzard S2 E10: Granny Annie
K&F Show Summary:
The Dukes accidentally receive counterfeit $5 bills from local amazing artist “Granny Annie” who was producing them for herself to avoid the need to get her monthly welfare check. Boss Hogg somehow gets involved and sells the engraving plates to make the fakeroo $5’s to a reall really bad guy. The problem? Boss didn’t actually have the plates, because the Dukes stole them back after Rosco stole them from them in order to protect Granny Annie who promised she’d never do it again (it’s complicated – it took me forever just to figure out how to write that). When the bad guy decides to kill Boss though, Rosco asks the Dukes to come to his rescue…and they do! This is the episode that proves the bad guys aren’t really the bad guys and helping your neighbor is the best way to live. The General jumps a moving train. Hijinks ensue.
Legit Show Info:
Season 2 – Episode 10 “Granny Annie”
Written by Bruce Howard
Directed by Dick Moder
Actor Ben Jones (Cooter) was replaced in this episode by his cousin B.B. Davenport. This would not be the first time a Dukes actor was replaces with (essentially) a duplicate character. According to the Dukes of Hazzard Wiki, during the second season (1979–1980), Ben Jones boycotted the show due to a dispute with the producers: they wanted the character to be clean shaven, whereas Jones had grown a full beard. As a result, Jones left the show for several episodes and it was explained in the series that Cooter was out of town. Filling in for Cooter at the garage during his absence were his cousins, B.B. Davenport (in only one appearance, played by Mickey Jones), and L.B. Davenport (played by Ernie W. Brown). Eventually, an agreement was reached – Jones would appear clean-shaven, and the character returned to the show with the episode “Treasure of Hazzard”, (1980). (However, for continuity reasons, with the episodes being broadcast in a different order to that which they were produced, Cooter did not appear clean-shaven until the start of the third season.)
Corndog’s Super Insider Analysis:
–This episode really did not have much insider information, but there are a few things that I picked out. At the beginning of the episode, the Oak Ridge Boys are playing at the Boar’s Nest to pay off a speeding ticket. This is the first of many other “Celebrity Speed Traps” that continue on throughout the rest of the series.
10:08 – When B.B. Davenport (played by Mickey Jones) goes out to the truck to CB the Duke Boys and warn them about the fake $5 bills, you can clearly see on the door where “Cooter” was removed from the Hazzard Garage decal and “B.B.” was applied right over it.
14:54 – When Rosco slams into the side of the General, it crushes the door in and the B-Pillar and front of the quarter is laid it pretty bad. This would have been a guaranteed death sentence for the Charger.
15:41 – General Lee jumps Train: As you’re well aware, this was one of the most famous jumps of the General Lee and Al Wyatt Jr. was the driver. This jump took place in Oxnard, CA. Police had local traffic blocked at the end of the road, which would give him plenty of space to shut the car down. Al said that he hit the ramp at about 80mph and the jump was around 30ft high. It is said that the car flew 230ft and it was the longest jump in a General. When the car hit the ground, he had no brakes. Not only that, but apparently the police officer didn’t get the memo and opened up the road to traffic. When the car landed, Al quickly realized that he was driving into oncoming traffic without brakes, so he cut the wheel and stuff the car into a 10-ton box truck that was parked on the side. The hood came through the windshield opening and the rear of the hood was sitting right above the steering wheel.
27:23 – They drive across the famous covered bridge that is at Golden Oak Ranch (Disney Ranch). I’ve mentioned this bridge before… many TV shows and movies have filmed on that bridge, including Kid Rock during Joe Dirt.
28:50 – They show a roof view of the General driving and you can clearly see how the stars were hand-cut and very inconsistent. One of the Veluzets have said that his wife and daughter would sit at the kitchen table and hand cut all of the stars would of vinyl.
Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200
1. Get Diet Coke to Sponsor us….or just Kibbe.
2. Be characters in the Disney/Pixar movie, Cars 3. Finnegan is the General. Kibbe…is wishing he was the General.
3. Syndicate the show onto TV and radio, having awesome guests in studio, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on regularly to be our best friend.
4. Get John Schneider himself on the show with us. Pray to God he actually likes us and isn’t freaked out.
5. Blow up the podcast so that it becomes a regular weekly show, interviewing celebrities, and actually providing a living for us capable of allowing us to race cars anytime we want plus let our wives get the shoes they like.
6. Get our own studio.
7. We each get a General Lee (real car – not a toy).
8. Get a Voiceover Guy to announce the segments.
9. Jump a car together. Kibbe wants to go 30-feet vertical.
10. Make a Dream GL that is based off of a 1973 NASCAR Charger (like the 1/16th scale AMT model)
11. Kibbe needs a new wallet to replace his “George Costanza”.
Mike to get a new truck for legit towing. DONE!
