The Dukes of Family Feud

The classic game show Family Feud is now available in a "best of" DVD set.

I got my hands on this and I was really excited to see that amid a fantastic group of celebrity guests, the cast of The Dukes Of Hazzard were listed.

What a thrill! The Duke boys on the Feud! This is more exciting than that time I thought I had eaten all the leftover pizza, but then I opened the fridge and there was a slice left.

Oh boy!

From left you have Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane, Luke Duke, Daisy Duke, Uncle Jesse (not the one from Full House) and Boss Hogg.


That couldn't be more exciting.

Then later on the DVD is ANOTHER Dukes episode of Family Feud!

Oh man! How sweet! I wonder who they will have this time? Will they swap out Bo for Luke? Uncle Jesse for Cooter? Roscoe for Enos?

Ah, the anticipation I had as the curtain opened...

And then I see this:

Suddenly I was brought to tears and a trombone player knocked down the door to play "wamp waaaaah" sound that they make on Let's Make a Deal whenever the deal sucks.







I'm sorry. I am just a little disappointed.

Let's take a look at these jokers.

OK, here is my best guess.. from RIGHT to left we have: Richard Dawson, Cletus, my cleaning woman, that dude that works at the bagel shop that fooled around with Tina Testarelli she and I were dating back in '98, the secretary from Ferris Bueller's school and Gilbert Gottfried.

Let's take a closer look.

Thats Rick Hurst who played Cletus Hogg on the show from 1980 to 1983. Look at how proud he is!
At first I thought he would be ashamed to introduce Dawson to this raggedy bunch that they cobbled together, but then it dawned on me: this group of useless meat sacks is the ONLY crowd that Cletus would get to rule over.

Next to Cletus is

This sexy thang is Lindsay Bloom who played Myrtle, the telephone operator, on the show. Cletus says she over hears all of the gossip that way. I have a vague memory of her relaying dirt to Boss Hogg.
I also have a vague memory of her in a wet t-shirt in the flick H.O.T.S..

Even that doesn't make me happy to see her on this show. I'd rather see Uncle Jesse in a wet t-shirt. Either Uncle Jesse.

Next up is this guy:

Cletus tells us this is a member of the Duke family...
But it ain't Bo or Luke.

Heck, it ain't even Coy or Vance (the fake Duke boys.)

Nope, this is cousin Jeb Stuart Duke.

He appeared on ONE EPISODE.

No foolin'.

This means that he appeared on an equal number of Family Feud episodes judging by this photo alone.
Look at his IMDB page:

I found this post on a Dukes fan site (yes, there is a Dukes fan site... plenty of them in fact.)

Jeb Stuart Duke
I had watched the show" Along Came a Duke" and the actor that played him was cute. I had thought him and Bo looked a lot alike. Where has he been after he before I know I have seen him somewhere before.

I don't know where else you saw him, Julieduke, but I bet you will wanna stop by my house next weekend!
I am having a Jeb Stuart Duke-a-thon. It's going to be a marathon showing of the complete catalog of Christopher Hensel performances. It will be from 6pm to 7pm on saturday (that time includes a dinner break.)

Afterwords we will be trying to figure out how you could have 4,113 different posts on the subject of the Dukes of Hazzard.
Then again, I probably have written that many jokes about the concept of there being two different "Uncle Jesse's" on TV.

Perhaps I should just shut my big mouth.

Next up is Peggy Rea who played Lulu, Boss Hoggs wife:

Now, don't get me wrong, Lulu was a funny character who appeared on a handful of episodes, but does she really belong on the Family Feud?
I can only imagine the sadness of anyone that tuned in to see the stars of the Dukes of Hazzard and gets... this:

I have seen better casts on a fishing show for re-re's.

Finally we have Jeff Altman:

Jeff had starred in Pink Lady and Jeff where I bet he played Pink Lady.

He appeared in a total of SIX episodes of the Dukes of Hazzard.

He played Hughie Hogg who was probably Boss Hogg's nephew.

Well, I gotta run. I wanna see if this parade of mediocrity can beat The Jeffersons.
