Dukes of Hazzard S2E23: Southern Comfurts

K&F Show Summary:

The “Southern Comfurts” episode is the final one of Season 2….and while it’s full of crazy cornball crap it’s as weird an episode as it gets and for some reason the General Lee gets painted green to go “incognito”. Not camo green though. Just a normal, run of the mill, Crayola crayon color of green. Weird. Anyway, the Dukes also help a Southern family with the last name of “Comfurt” who come into a lot of money only to lose the money in a pirates trunk in the back of a renal car. Boss Hogg tries to get the money, is kidnapped by some out of town bank robbers, and the Dukes save the day in a green General Lee. Did I mention that they paint it on the side of the road somehow? Hijinks ensue.

-The stunt driver chick in the Jeep is really brave. Or scary.

-When they are at the junk yard – there are dead Rosco cars there, you can see into the back of the false studio buildings, and there’s a General lee there too! And the blue Mustang from a few episodes ago.Two of them! And one dead General Lee.

-They paint the General Lee green in this episode. It fools no one.

-John Henry was played by Edward Edwards…who went on to great fame, including acting in RoboCop. Your move creep.

-Iggins was played by British actor Bernard Fox, who was in Knight Rider, a number of things really, and also Bewitched.

-Holly was played by Miriam Byrd-Nethery. She was on Charlie’s Angels, Quincy, The Fall Guy, Mr Belvedere, and the super duper family favorite, Chainsaw Massacre III.

 

Corndog’s Super Insider Analysis:

hi
A scene from the Southern Comfurts episode. Do you see the nose of a smashed General Lee hiding in this picture? Image: Warner Bros, provided by Justin “Corndog” Cornette.

2:37 – As Bo and Luke are running from Rosco… who is out to repo their tires… the camera cuts to an interior shot of the General Lee. Clearly, this is not the General Lee. It has black interior and has some sort of a cage behind the seats. Possibly a patrol car.

25:11 – Luke is pulling a spare tire from the back of the General Lee. You’ll notice that this car was originally F3 Light Metallic Green.

29.21 – After Bo and Luke leave the body shop, they jump the General Lee. The also jump the police car. This is recycled footage from the first season. Notice the police car is an AMC.

31.47 – When Jesse and Holly are at the junkyard, looking for the grey sedan, this is actually a back lot at Warner Brothers. You will notice there are three wrecked police cars on the lot. At the 32:30 mark, as they are getting back in Jesse’s truck, you can see a wrecked General Lee in the background. The grille and bumper assembly look to be removed, but the fender is a dead giveaway. As the truck pulls forward, you can also see the round turn signal in the lower valance.

32:48 – Luke paints the General Lee green. I bright green Charger doesn’t stick out as much as a bright orange car. They must be using the same built-in air compressor that they use while changing flat tires on the side of the road.

35:05 – When Bo pulls up to the used car lot in the green Charger, you can see a key key dents on the car. There is a dent in the 10 o’clock position of the driver side rear wheel opening… a decent sized dent at the top of the quarter, and another decent sized dent on the rear edge of the trunk lid. This is actually the same General Lee that you see earlier in the episode when they are changing the flat tire.

39:39 – If you look carefully, when the green Charger goes up on two wheels, you can see the hogged out fender…. yup, you guessed it… Mike’s favorite 4×4 GL

The Rolls Royce being used in the episode will be used again in a later dual episode… “Million Dollar Sheriff”.

It was rumored that WGL 35 (the surviving ski car) may have been used in this episode… since there was a lot of green paint found underneath. This really can not be true because we see at least two different green cars, and both are 1969 model cars, whereas WGL 35 is a 1968 model. Unless there was a third green car, I don’t really see this being true.

Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200

rob_ferrari_dietcokesponsorship
Coca Cola Corporation take note. This is how awesome sponsoring our show would be. Even when driving Ferrari F-430 race prepped track cars Kibbe can only think about how refreshing a Diet Coke would be.

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”.

12. Mike to get a new truck for legit towing. DONE!
