Daisy (Catherine Bach) tries to help her friend Mary Lou Pringle (Morgan Brittany), who is having trouble selling a house that is rumored to be haunted. It turns out that the "ghosts" are really a gang of thieves who have recently robbed the Boar's Nest and stolen all of Boss Hoggs' (Sorrell Booke) silver. The climactic action sequence is a deft blend of typical Dukes of Hazzard rambunctiousness and good, ol'-fashioned Abbott and Costello-style scare comedy. Tammy Wynette appears as the first of several real-life country singers who are caught in Boss' "celebrity speed trap" and forced to sing at the Boars' Head to pay off their fine: in Tammy's case, the payoff song is "Rocky Top, Tennessee". This episode, originally slated to air on December 6, 1980, was moved up to November 7 by CBS to take advantage of the ratings engendered by Dallas' "Who Shot J.R.?" season-opener on the same night.
