Jeff Altman makes his first appearance as Boss Hogg's nephew Hughie, not yet the shifty schemer he'd become in later episode, but here the relatively honest temporary sheriff of Hazzard County (regular sheriff Roscoe does not appear because series costar James Best was sitting the episode out, protesting against working conditions on the set). In his first official act, Hughie arrests Jesse Duke (Denver Pyle) on a carstripping charge, little realizing that the actual culprits are a gang of female crooks in league with his own Uncle Boss. Featuring among the shapely miscreants are twin actresses Randi Brough and Candi Brough, who decorated many a comedy and adventure series of the era. The original network broadcast of this episode was moved up from its intended airdate of January 18, 1980.
