In the opening episode of The Dukes of Hazzard's second season, lifelong antagonists Jesse Duke (Denver Pyle) and Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) take a trip down Memory Lane while watching a scratchy old newsreel of their bootlegging days. Arguing over which of them was the better "ridge-runner", Boss and Jesse decide to solve their differences with an illegal, no-holds-barred grudge race. This puts both of the Good Ol' Boys in the gunsights of an elderly, embittered sheriff who has waited for years to wreak vengeance. With this episode, Sonny Shroyer becomes a regular in his familiair role of dumb-but-honest deputy Enos; also, the episode marks the moment in which corrupt Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane forevers forsakes his "cynical villain" status to become a live-action equivalent of Wile E. Coyote--literally so in the climactic chase sequence!
