The Return of Corndog: A Cinematic Discussion of Non used Cinema General Lee’s that Kinda had Cinema Ties….ish (and a Dukes Review Too)
Finnegan is out on Roadkill duty this week so once again Corndog took the mantle of responsibility, charging forward with the old claim that the show must go on. Neither rain nor sleet will keep us from our appointed rounds…and I had more geeky General Lee questions to ask him.
The discussion stars around the non-screen used but “real” General Lee’s that have pointed up in the world, and what Corndog’s take is on them (including one that just went to a Mecum auction). Shocker – he knows the story on them all. But did you know that there were about 5 unconverted Chargers left after the Dukes series ended? It’s true….and at least two went on to become super authentic replica Generals. And that discussion lasted 20 minutes alone. And my brain hurts.
Also in this episode – an actual Dukes review that we made it to! This one is a good episode centered on the classic story-line you’ve heard a thousand times: two bad guys put a stolen gold certificate in the back of a tattered rear seat of a taxi-cab that Bo and Luke are driving (to help Miss Tizzdale) that ends up in an upholstery shop where Boss and Rosco dress like ghosts, which ends in the entire story completing in a massive cause of mail fraud and a minor case of shenanigans. And a General lee jump is in there too. So, good. -Kibbe

Season 3 – Episode 21: “The Hack of Hazzard”
Written by Len Kaufman

Original Airdate: 4/3/1981
Corndog’s Insider Dukes of Hazzard Episode Specific Nerd Trivia:
This was a pretty good episode. Even though there was only one GL jump and one police car jump… I thought that it had a decent amount of car footage. There appears to be 3-4 different Chargers that were used… the car with the painted over rocker moldings seemed to be used quite a bit. When the camera cuts to a close up of the interior of the General Lee, this appears to be a factory saddle interior car.
2:07 – Bo, Luke, and Daisy pull up to the post office. The General Lee is a ’69 model and is sporting a pair of painted-over rocker moldings and wheel open moldings.
19:56 – After Rosco is covered with fruits and vegetables, and is chasing Bo and Luke. Rick Hurst (Cletus) actually does his own stunt… and does it well. Ted Barba is doubling Rosco as he runs down the sidewalk… Rick jumps on top of and runs across the hood of the police car, jumps, and tackles Ted (“Rosco”).
27:12 – When Bo and Luke are looking around in Uncle Charlie’s Upholstery, Luke uncovers a saddle tan ’69 Charger rear upper seat frame from one of the General Lees.
30:54 – We finally get to see the General Lee make a jump over the pond.
37:54 – Luke calls Daisy on the CB but calls her “Country Cousin” instead of the usual “Bo Peep”.
40:10 – When Rosco and Boss Hogg veer off the road to avoid Daisy’s Jeep, and the hood pops open… there is no one in the passenger seat when they show the in-car view.
At the end of the episode, they go to the old abandoned town “Shoveltown”. Last night while reviewing the episode, I quickly fell off into the rabbit-hole trying to figure out exactly which set this was. I assumed that it was the old Laramie Street Western set at Warner Brothers Studios… but there are a lot of differences between the two. I finally found an early enough aerial photo of Warner Brothers Studios and was able to compare the buildings to the screen shots. This was filmed at Laramie Street.
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!
