Dukes Review: The Return of Hughie Hogg
K&F Show Summary:
For this show, it’s all about a new story for an old bad guy. Do you remember who Hughie Hogg is? Hughie is Boss Hogg’s nephew who is effectively a younger, greedier version of Boss. Boss brings him into town from time to time to get his help framing the Dukes, pull heists, and groom him for future evil deeds. Now you’re up to speed. This episode mostly revolves around Hughie tricking Boss into giving him all of his possessions in order to avoid an IRS audit. As soon as Hughie has everything he wanted he renames the town after himself and establishes a world that kind of resembles that one time in Back to the Future II when Biff was powerful in the alternate 1985. Maybe that’s a stretch here, but this is a tough episode to write a witty summary of. Anyway, the IRS audit was just a ruse set up by Hughie in the first place, hijinks ensue, and then the Dukes have to help Boss get out of the mess by working together with he and Rosco. Happy Gilmore’s Grandma has a role in here too. (Really).

Original Airdate: 3/6/1981
Corndog’s Insider Dukes of Hazzard Episode Specific Nerd Trivia:
In the opening scene, this is one of the few times you will see the General Lee with the headlight doors open.
12:26 – The General Lee jumping the construction site… This footage was reused numerous times throughout the tv series and was even used in the 1997 Reunion movie as well. The landing was soft enough… it would surprise me if this car was repaired and jumped again.
– If you look close at Hughie Hogg’s VW, notice that the car was not an actual convertible… it was a standard Beetle with the roof cut off.
– After Boss Hogg jumps from the tow truck onto the hood of the General Lee, notice that this car was an SE model with the woodgrain dash.
On the stunt where they crashed two police cars in the the mid air… this was one of my favorite stunts throughout the entire series. It took some serious planning to pull it off. I messaged Ted Barba about the stunt… he drove the car on the right, and stunt driver Lance Turner drove the other car. He said, leading up to the stunt, all of the crew members and other stunt guys were pretty worried about this particular stunt. They hit their marks, their speed and timing were exactly the same, and they pulled off the stunt perfectly.
Here are a few behind the scene photos from this episode. The first picture (with the door in front of the car) would have been Lance Turner’s car… second picture being Ted Barba’s car.
I give this episode an 8… mostly because of the stunts… otherwise, the rest of the episode was pretty cheesy.
Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200
1. Get Diet Coke to Sponsor us….or just Kibbe. FAILED 2. Be characters in the Disney/Pixar movie, Cars 3. Finnegan is the General. Kibbe…is wishing he was the General. FAILED.
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. NOV 2017: THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN!
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).
Kibbe has one!
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!
