A group of old-time bootleggers called the Ridge Raiders regroup after forty years to prevent Boss Hogg from financially depleting a senior-citizens center in order to build a nudie bar called the "Play Pen." Level-headed Jesse Duke (Denver Pyle) advises the gun- and bomb-happy Ridge Raiders to fight Boss with the Law rather than with violence, but old habits die hard. James Hampton appears as temporary sheriff Buster Moon, the last in a long line of replacements for regular sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (actor James Best was still "sitting out" the series, protesting working conditions). This episode was written by Si Rose and directed by Hollingworth Morse, who had previously collaborated on the 1960s sitcom McHale's Navy.
