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.

Dukes Meet Cale Yarborough - S2-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When the General Lee makes a great jump (in fact the jump is used in the opening credits of the show starting in season 2), you can see a camera hooked to the bottom of the car on the passenger's side.

Road Pirates - S2-E5

Factual error: When Roscoe tries the same jump the Dukes did, his car goes nose first into the wall of the ravine. Upon a close up, Roscoe is fine, but not wearing a seatbelt. According to physics, he should go through the windshield or get cut up.

Gold Fever - S2-E2

Plot hole: Roscoe and Enos are chasing the boys. They are well ahead of the Sheriff and go up into a semi with a conveniently made ramp to lose the cops. The dust was dissipated enough that Roscoe, coming up from the rear, could have seen the General in the trailer. Roscoe couldn't be that blind. Plus the trucker couldn't miss the movements of the truck settling down from the sudden adding of two tons.

Movie Nut

Road Pirates - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the boys and Cletus are being chased by Roscoe, they use the nitro. When the car is jumping the creek, as it is seen from the back before it lands, you can see one person wearing the Deputy hat. This shot was re-used from the beginning of the episode.

The Meeting - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After Boss and Roscoe come down to the jail where the Dukes have the mobsters trapped, Boss pulls out a cigar. After the camera cuts a wide shot, the cigar is missing. Then Boss pulls out the cigar again.

Officer Daisy Duke - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Enos posts up an "Armed Robbery" poster for Floyd Baker and Molly Harmon for a $10,000 reward but after he rips it off the wall after he sees them outside the courthouse it turns into a wanted poster for "Grand Larceny and Car Stripping" for Bo, Luke and Daisy Duke. (00:03:50 - 00:09:55)

Hazzard Connection - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Luke is slamming into the smugglers with "the Slammer" car they show a close up side shot of Luke turning into them. In this close up he is driving the general lee, then it cuts back to the slammer.

Days of Shine and Roses - S2-E1

Other mistake: When the General does a jump during their shortcut, it goes through a tree, and lands mostly on the left side of the car, but the next shot, it's still going.

Days of Shine and Roses - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Rosco gets out of the car with the Detour sign, the arrow points to the right, the way Boss went. When he sets the sign up, it points left. Then after Luke grabs it and sets it out ahead of Jessie, it points back to the right.

Return of the Ridge Raiders - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: The boys are driving along an open dirt road, being chased by the Sheriff. As they meet a blue car, they wave, and you notice that there are no bushes anywhere to be seen. When the blue car meets the cop cars, there are suddenly bushes on either side of the road, poorly disguising ramps used to flip the cop cars.

Movie Nut

Treasure of Hazzard - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Lester hits the tree in the Sheriff's car, the grille comes off in the crash. A few moments later, he goes to back up to get back in the chase, and you see the grille is back in place, and minor damage to the hood. (00:38:25)

Treasure of Hazzard - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: After Daisy stops at the tree after Lester and Boss crash, she's facing away from the road. The bad guys and the General go by the spot and are well past Daisy on the right side of the Jeep. After they are past, the camera does a close up on Daisy, and her looking and yelling to the camera "Go get them Bo!" She's not looking in the right direction.

Deputy Enos Strate: Possum on a gumbush.
