When the 2 crooks try to take of in the airplane with Daisy and the pilot, at the end of the episode. Bo and Luke manage to crash the plane. In the following shot you see the cockpit, but the pilot is gone and only 3 people exit the plane. Sheriff Grady Bird replaces Rosco in this episode and arrests 2 crooks, but not the pilot from the airplane. Where did he go ?
Editor's note: Good catch. I noticed this myself.
At the begining of this episode, Bo and Luke drive Daisy to the Boar's Nest in the General Lee. Later, they use her car to chase the tour bus. How did Daisy's car get there?
There is a funny situation in this episode where the kidnappers connected two police cars with a chain. In one shot the cable is connected below the bumper, and in the other shot the cable is connected to the bumper of what seems to be Enos' police car. It seems the cars bumper did not hold the chain more than 1 pull, like Rosco and Enos did. When you see the close up destroying the 2 cars, the chain is again on the bumper.
The boys hide the "water heater" at Cooter's farm. How does Cooter have time to run a farm when he spends all day fixing either the General Lee or Rosco and Enos' patrol cars.
Editor's note: Many who own farms only work them part time or as a hobby and have regular jobs. Such appears to be the case with Cooter here.
When they are all in jail watch as Tom Wopat sits down, you can see he smacks his head on the bar, judging by the look on Toms face it hurt aswell.
When Bo, Luke, and Henry are talking in the cemetery about what Boss Hogg is planning on doing, you can see in the background that one of the graves says "Ira Murchinson" on it. That's the same grave that the Dukes saw in a previous episode Duke of Duke.
When the Dukes leave after helping out at the old lady's house, Bo's driving. When they arrive at the Boar's Nest, Luke is driving.
This story was adapted for the classic children's "3D camera" toy ViewMaster. As second set, from the fourth season episode "Pin the Tale on the Dukes", was later released.
When Bo makes a practice leap using one of the carnival cars, he takes off in a Pontiac, but lands in a Dodge.
When Enos get knocked out at the junkyard when Bo, Luke, and Cooter are trying to get the General Lee back he is supposed to be unconcious and when Daisy is trying to wake him up you can see Enos's eye's snap open and then shut again.
When Daisy, Bo and Luke are run off the road about half way through the episode, the pick up truck flips and the roof completely caves in on one side (the side Bo is sitting at). How did they survive never mind not get hurt at all? There isnt even a scratch on them and Bo just climbs out the window.
Boss reveals that Cletus is his second cousin, twice removed.
In this episode Rosco refers to Flash as he. However, in later episodes, Flash is refered to as she and Bo often calls her girl. (This could be explained partly due to Rosco's stupidity)
Morgan Brittany met her husband, Jack Gill while working on this episode.
During the final chase scene Luke is wearing his boxing robes however when the General Lee does a 180, Luke's sleeve of his blue shirt can be seen out of his side of the car. but in the very next scene he is wearing his boxing robes.
This episode marks the first use of a plot that would become much reworked in the show, that of one of the main characters suffering severe personality change. It would be used for Bo later this season in "My Son, Bo Hogg", and for Luke in the fourth season's "Goodbye, General Lee" and season seven's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Duke", and Daisy in season six's 'Heiress Daisy Duke'. It is also used of sorts for Rosco in the sixth season's "Too Many Roscos", where Rosco's place is taken by an impostor. More specifically, the 'personality change' idea would be used for Boss Hogg a number more times, including season four's "Nothin' But the Truth", and in season seven's "No More Mr. Nice Guy". We also see Sorrell Booke play Abraham Lincoln Hogg, Boss's kind hearted identical brother, in "Baa, Baa White Sheep" a few episodes later in the third season.
Daisy's yellow car is seen in this episode again despite having been driven over a cliff in the previous season (The Runaway). This was because the episodes were aired in a different order to what was originally intended.
It is revealed by Sue Mae that Rosco's full name is Rosco Purvis Coltrane.
When the crooks go to sabotage the General, the car is a lot more banged up than it was when Bo & Luke went inside the police station.
When Bo and Luke arrive at the Boar's Nest they give Boss Hogg the wanted poster with Sue Ann's picture on it. Boss leaves clutching it. Later when the Dukes are telling Rosco about Sue Ann, Luke pulls the wanted poster out of his pocket to show Rosco.
