The Dukes of Hazzard

The Great Bank Robbery - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: The bandits lock Bo and Luke inside closed coffins and then leave. Bo and Luke begin "rocking" the coffins back and forth to tip them over so they can escape. However in the following shots, as Luke is rocking inside his closed coffin, the camera slips or shifts too much, and you can see the barns' interior at the sides of the screen, alongside some equipment.


Show generally

Revealing mistake: Bo and Luke Duke's car the "general Lee" usually has no glass in the side windows due the doors being welded shut as per NASCAR regulations which is why they climb through the windows to enter and leave the car, but when the general is doing one of its many jumps, in the long shots there is glass in the side windows.

Swamp Molly - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When the truck goes into the water, you can see the driver was either a stunt driver or a dummy. Also, you can see the top of the truck just under the surface of the water, suggesting it was on the bottom. A few seconds later, and all you can see are bubbles.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When the boys are stopping to check the ambulance, you can see the smoke device burning used to simulate the engine running badly.

Limo One is Missing - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When spying on the hidden chop shop, the boys are using Cooter as a stepladder, with their feet on his shoulders. After he complains about their boots, they jump down after Daisy warns them. If you look at Cooter's shoulders, you can see that they're padded for the stunt.

Daisy's Song - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: As the Sheriff's cars are nearing the area where the Mobile Madam is, they're driving fast. As the RV and Bo are nearing the gate of the property they're on, you can see the two Sheriff's cars sitting just to the left of frame, then just beginning to move to make the pursuit look good.

One Armed Bandits - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Three times during the final chase there are close ups of the boys in the General Lee. If you look, the car is stationary on a brown dirt road, and the car is being shaken to simulate driving.

One Armed Bandits - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When there is a close up of the boys the first time they are driving through the junkyard, you can see through the passenger window that the car is being shaken to simulate driving.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In the driver closeup shots, look at the backgrounds. A lot of the time, it shows the vehicle making turns, and the driver doesn't match the motion. Also, there are a lot of closeups where you see blue screen instead of scenery, or they go from city to country in a moment.

Movie Nut

Gold Fever - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: Toward the beginning, when the Dukes meet the Texans, when the Texans toss up shot glasses to shoot, you see a white wire attached to one of them, probably to bust the glass on cue.

Movie Nut

The Ghost of General Lee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys from Sweetwater county try to steal Boss' safe, you see them pushing it up a ramp into the pickup truck. But in the next shot, when Daisy calls the operator, the safe is in the corner. And when Bo and Luke go to untie Daisy, the safe is gone.

Double Sting - S1-E13

Question: In this episode, Jessie, ticked off that he had to pay the boy's bail, says that the mortgage payment has to be made to Jason Higgins. I thought that J.D. Hogg held the mortgage to the Duke farm. Has my memory got a hole in it?

Answer: Hogg didn't own the farm and hold the mortgage until that episode. He says that he "bought aII Jason's hoIdings Iast week", but the Dukes didn't know about it and thought they still had to pay Higgins.
