I loved The Dukes of Hazzard so much as a kid my bed was adorned with The Dukes of Hazzard sheets and covers. Daisy Duke was my very first crush.

I had a Dukes Of Hazard lunch box and colouring book. Daisy was many young boys' first crush. R.I.P Roscoe.

I grew up with the Dukes. Friday night was Dukes night for us- and yes I had the crush on Daisy. But Rosco was special with his laugh and Flash. And his "Little Buddy" Boss Hogg.

RIP James. You brought Rosco to life for us. The Dukes wouldn't have been the Dukes without you.

I was a teenager when this came out so Daisy was my favourite . My friends and I only liked the first season it got old pretty fast.
