“Breaker One, Breaker One!!  Crazy Cooter Comin’ At Ya’!”

Hey Y’all,

Well, the “Dukes of Hazzard,” Cooter’s Place, and all of Hazzard Nation are still rollin’ along in real good shape.

The show is doing great on C.M.T., on DVD, on video games, and on T.V. sets all over the world. And that is directly because of you, the citizens of Hazzard nation!

I strongly believe that the “Dukes” has a timelessness that is universal. Each generation of youngsters that comes along starts watching, and the kids think that it is brand new. The “younguns” love watching it with their parents and grandparents. For that we all want to thank you, the best fans in the world. Hopefully we can keep on keepin’ on for a long, long time.

PS. I hope you like our new website format. And I hope to see all of y’all real soon!

Keep your ears on,
Ben “Cooter” Jones
