Storyline

This was another attempt to take a successful primetime television series and turn it into a Saturday morning cartoon. In it, the Dukes, Daisy and her cousins, Coy and Vance in the first season, and then Bo and Luke in the second, were racing Boss Hogg and his right hand man Roscoe, to win the prize money, to pay the mortgage on their farm. Everyweek Uncle Jesse who was back on the farm would get a letter or postcard from Daisy detailing the events that would take place in the episode. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The series started during Tom Wopat and John Schneider's walkout on the original TV series, therefore Coy and Vance were the Duke boys in the first season, but after Tom and John settled and returned, Bo and Luke replaced Coy and Vance for the second season. See more »

in a way this proves to be the era of the Advertisement Cartoons
4 May 2007 | by StLouisAssassinSee all my reviews

in a way this proves that in the 1980's cartoons were not about substance and creativity, but were instead used as tools to sell merchandise(toys) to youngsters (or were used to promote another TV show or movie) and there were even entire cartoons based on video games. It seemed that every 1980's cartoon that was introduced to our kids was trying to sell or promote something else.

I remember in the mid 1970s seeing animated version of Star Trek and thinking that it was cool. But I didn'realize was that the Star Trek cartoon was the beginning of a new trend. The trend was to take a popular TV show and reinvent it as a Saturday morning cartoon.

"The Dukes" as the cartoon was titled wasn't all that bad. but it wasn't all that good either. It wasn't the only prime time driven cartoon out there in the mid 80's ..there was also Mr. T, The Real Ghostbusters, Rambo:The Animated Series, Hulk Hogan's WWF wrestlers(yes they too had their own 1980's cartoon), and lets not forget that George Lucas gave us "Driods & Ewoks" .all of these cartoons were based on other T.V. shows (Or Movies).and none of them proved to have any real staying power and were gone as quickly as they appeared. .

then there were the 1980's toy commercials cartoons, these were cartoons that only had one purpose and that was to sell more toys and the toy makers used the cartoon to promote their products. examples... G.I. Joe:Real American Hero, He-Man & The Masters of the Universe, Dungons and Dragons, Transformers the series, Captain Power, Teenage Mutant Nija Turltes And then in the mid 80's came the video game based cartoons such as Pac-Man, Q-bert and others. ...I can still remember that they had a prime time Pac-Man Christmas special. .

Just a side note........I actually did like the G.I Joe & Star Trek Cartoons.

but it seemed that ever 1980's cartoon that came on our tube was about something else other than just being a fun and entertaining.

I believe that is why the classic Disney(Mickey Mouse) and Warner Brother(Bugs Bunny) cartoons are so good and never go out of style. Those classic Cartoons are not trying to make us buy the latest fad, there not trying to get us to watch another TV show, there not trying to get us to play a video game...no...those classics are just fun and entertaining. And that why they never go out of style.
