Some Information About Your Favorite Stars
Catherine Bach is probably most well-known for her role in Dukes of Hazzard as Daisy Duke. You might also know the name “Daisy Duke” from the pop culture term for denim shorts. Funnily enough, the original wardrobe for Daisy was a miniskirt, but Bach came up with the idea for shorts and it stuck. Now, Daisy Dukes are Dukes of Hazzard collectibles.
Tom Wopat may have had his start on Dukes of Hazzard, but he actually produced music and toured the world after the show ended. That doesn’t mean there aren’t Dukes of Hazzard action figures of him sold with Dukes of Hazzard DVDs, though. Additionally, Wopat made the signature car hood slide something of a trademark stunt. The first time it happened, it was completely by accident, but filmmakers liked it so much that it became a staple in the show.
So whether you’ve got a Dukes of Hazzard shirt or a Dukes of Hazzard DVD you want signed, know that two of your favorite stars will be there to meet and greet at these events!
