Is the "Dukes of Hazard" a classic?!

Talking about the return of Hawaii 5-0 to TV inspired Scott to declare that the "Dukes of Hazard" was classic TV. REALLY?! Kelli says "no way!" What do YOU think?

I liked the old show. I watched some of it with my brothers and my dad. It is seriously a classic. I grew up with the reruns.

"Dukes of Hazard" is very much a classic! It reminds me of my childhood when life was much more simple Smile, I had the "General Lee" toy car and used to sleep with it @ night LOL

I agree with Scott. I loved the Dukes of Hazard, but I guess I am a tomboy, I didn't like the remake of it just not the same.

Dukes of Hazzard was not just for guys. It was one of my favorites and couldn't wait to watch every week. I do agree that the movie didn't even come close to the "classic" show, but then, I'm somewhat of a tomboy, and will only drive a truck! Smile

Dukes of Hazard a classic, NO WAY!! I remember my dad watching it all the time.  My personal opinion on classic tv shows,  Sonny and Cher, and Elvis Live from Hawaii(not really a weekly tv show but deff and classic) now THOSE are classic!!

P.S.  The "movie", if you really want to call it that, was an utter disgrace to the wholesome, character building, family TV that I enjoyed for years with my brother an father, once a week.

Scott, it was Enus Strait. The Dukes are a classic. There have been a lot worse shows on the t.v. and for that matter still are! They always helped the little people and showed that you help your neighbor, if that means jumping a car and yelling YYYEEE HHHHAAAAWWW that just makes it that much better, but when you win the race and donate the money to the orphanage that is true class!

Yes!!!! Every Friday night my nanny would have the grandkids over for a " yeehaw" party!  We would have popcorn or ice cream or something yummy She had made and we would watch the Dukes!!!!  Not a fan of the movie as it was over the top and strayed from the shoe to me. Also .....I grew u in valdosta, GA home of ENOS!  His TV laugh is real!

The Dukes of Hazzard was NOT just for the guys. I really enjoyed watching the wild driving and of course there was the added attraction of just seeing those two cuties Bo & Luke. The humor was pretty good too at least from the point of view of a southern girl(woman). Certainly it was more entertaining than The Brady Bunch.

Oh YES!!!  The Dukes was our Friday Night family entertainment when our kids were little.  I event bought a die cast metal Dukes car for my son Andrew's future children.  Sadly he died in January 2010  with no children.  Tomorrow would have been his 30th birthday.  We had wonderful family times around the Dukes.

Ok, I can see the point in the guys liking the Dukes with the hot cars and action.  I watched it as a high school student when I was not a Christian.  At the time I thought it was a sexist show that degraded the women in it (probably the influence of my high school and college professors). I would not recommend it today with the women in it with way too little clothing on their bodies.  Not something that I would want my son to see.  No, it is not a classic.  I think the action part of the show is probably ok, but when you put the scantily clad women in it (especially Daisy), and the suggestive dialogue, the show is not worth it.

I do believe that The Dorks of Hazzard was truly a classic, that is a classic waste of an hour(3600 of my daily alloted 84,600 seconds every time that I watched it. I was often forced to watch it because my brother-in-law was 12 years old, and autistic, so I let him watch his Dorks of Hazzard. I suppose that it could be a classic if you were 12 years old when it was current. I was well past the age threshold of  considering The Dorks to be entertainment. Thank you and keep up the incredible work that you do. I love you guys.

The dukes of Hazzard is the best show ever made! I learned everything I ever  needed to know from that show. I learned about morals, how to fight, how to stand up for a lady and talk nice in front of a lady. And Daisy Duke was my first crush! Lol  I still watch it when I find it on tv.  It is definitely a classic. Thanks guys. Your station is the best!

The Dukes of Hazzard is most definitely a good old-fashioned American family classic with good morals. Uncle Jesse always kept God in his life lessons. My family and I love it so much that we built a General Lee, a Rosco car and are currently working on an Uncle Jesse truck. We have been to several events surrounding the love of This show and it has created many wonderful friendships and memories for us. I only wish some of the tv shows today had the decent morals of the Dukes...... Yee haw!!!

I am a 31yr old girl (kinda girlie - not too much) and I LOVE the Dukes of Hazzard!  I always have.  I would run to the tv at my grandparents to watch it with my cousin.  Wearing my general lee nightgown.  I did NOT like the remake - I thought it was an insult.   Kelly, put on your favorite jeans, wax the hood of the car and go for a slide - you can't help but smile!

Dukes of Hazard... a total classic from a "New Englander's" perspective.  I loved it, we watched it as a family, Dad, Mom, Sister and Brother.  

Though my Dad did not like Daisy Duke walking around in those tiny jean shorts and such.   But we all liked it.

Scott-it is Roscoe P. Coltrane not Enos P. Coltrane. Now, i have to tell you, when i met my husband in 2000, he had a "Dukes" room. he had showcases full of Dukes of Hazzard stuff. there was very few things that he didn't have that were of DoH. he eventually bought a DoH car and kept it until i was pregnant with our daughter. Get this, he sold 95% or more of his Dukes stuff to...are you ready? Ben Jones "Cooter Davenport" he actually came to our house to pick the stuff up! i guess you could say my husband is a major Dukes fan. CMT is now showing the Dukes of Hazzard again weeknights. My 7 yr old daughter talked about it for 2wks before it aired. WE LOVE THE DUKES OF HAZZARD!!!!

Here's a two for one for klove today. This morning on my way to work I heard about the wow story re: the girl from America who sent the package to the girl she met in Armenia-then this afternoon I here you talking about the Dukes of Hazzard-well, my son who is 17 loves the Dukes and he's collected most of the DVD's of their seasons(which by the way on holidays are very hard to find) and  we have enjoyed letting him watch them 'cause it's good, clean fun. My husband and i enjoy watching them too-well my son having liked them for the past 4-5 years, he asked the week before his 14th birthday if I would email the "Duke boys" now that they are grown up and see if he could meet them, I told him I did not have those kind of connections but to ask the Lord. well, the next week we were in town and my son just happened to notice the sign for the movie theater said John Schneider would be there at that theater the upcomig Monday promoting his movie then "Hot Pursuit"--we were there with bells on-got lots of pictures, autographs for all of our Duke memorabilia, got to sit right behind him and watch the movie together and when the cars would make their jumps in his movie he was promoting, my son was the only one in the theater to yell "yee-high" but Mr Schneider looked straight at him signaling he knew he was a true duke fan!
God cares about us in ways we even dream about!
We Love K-Love!

The "Dukes" were part of many fun Friday nights for our family.  Since there was no school the next day, us kids got to stay up and watch the show. It was also special because Friday night was the one night every week we made popcorn and had soda!  That Friday night line-up was #1 because the Dukes came on @ 8, DALLAS @ 9, and MIAMI VICE @ 10pm.  They just had an all-Dukes weekend on CMT and it was fun to see some of the shows again.  It wasn't just for boys either. My sisters and I enjoyed watching the crazy car chases and we thought Luke & Bo were cute!

YES!!! Dukes of Hazard is a classic.  Here is why I think it is.  FAMILY VALUES. Yep. 1) Uncle Jessie took in "the kids" He was a crusty old man who despite wanting to be left alone, took care of his extended family instead of letting someone else do it. 2) No matter what the situation was, they were a family and stuck together against the "big, bad world" (Boss Hogg). 3) You always knew that no matter how many times Uncle Jessie yelled at the kids what a blamed fool thing to do, what were you boneheads thinking?? that he would never lock them out of the house (um, did the doors even have locks?). 4) Some how with all the car chases and such, the chores STILL got done.  YEEE---HAAWWHHH!!!

Yes it is a classic. My two boys love it and i don't have to be concerned about profanity and sexual content. The movie on the other should have never been released. i came to that conclusion just by watching 30 seconds of it. we need more shows like dukes of hazard,andy griffith and so forth.

The Dukes of Hazzard is a classic.  This year at the Chicago Auto Show the Volo museum was there with one of the original cars.  I got on my knees and pulled a Wayne Campbell--Wayne's World.  Also as a kid I went through four Dukes big wheels.  I told that to Ben Jones at a meet and greet and he just shoke his head.

I loved Dukes of Hazard, and I'm NOT from the country. Although I agree it is a "Classic" it's not up there with shows like -"I Love Lucy" or
some others...but I'm looking forward to seeing the new Hawaii 5-0. I enjoyed the new Battlestar Galactica,by Syfy channel; which i am just now getting into. (season 2). Anyway, Remake can be good, even better than the original sometimes.
Let's wait and see, okay?

Maybe I don't know the meaning, but I don't think calling something a classic is solely based on whether it was a good show or not but the length of time since the show was on air. I thought it was a nice show and entertaining. Lets face it those Duke boys sure were cute and fun to watch. I would call it a classic. You don't see that many shows that are that similar to this show. So many shows these days and even some in the past were basically the same show with differnt characters. I mean the writers even passed around their scripts for all those westerns.
