As you might know the re-runs of the show were recently cancelled on ‘TV Land’ and fans of the show are encouraging other fans to sigh an on-line petition to bring it back.

The petition is available at Change.org and has already nearly reached the 50,000 names Change.org says is needed to submit to the network.

Here’s what the petition says in part:

“For well over 30 years, the Confederate flag has adorned the roof of the General Lee from “The Dukes of Hazzard” tv show. “The Dukes of Hazzard” was a show about values, morals and principles – not about racism and hate!!! Fans of the show know what the show is all, about and what the Confederate flag really stands for: southern pride and values – not racism or hate!!”

The petition goes on to say, “There were multiple episodes where they helped people of colors other then “white”, and it even had a black sheriff that appeared often, who was respected and feared more then the sheriff of Hazzard… Bring back this TV show that had family values, a family that prayed before dinner, went to church on Sunday, and that was always willing to help ANYONE in need… even their enemy, when the need arose… and their trusty indestructible car that was almost always there to help them help others, when needed… the General Lee”

  1. I fully support the Dukes of Hazard. Its crazy to think of the garbage that is on tv today and that the Dukes was canceled due to one sinful person using a flag out of context. The show has more morals than 100% of the shows today. I have cancelled TV Land from my subscription until it is returned.

  2. I used to like TV Land but i have definantly stopped watching it as much. I will watch it that much more if they return “The Dukes of Hazzard.” But, if they want to cut their own ratings then thats there problem.

  3. The Dukes of Hazzard is not a racially charged show, the paint sheme on top of the car was completly misunderstood, the cross on top of the car is a St. Andrews cross, not stars and bars, the show had no intention to indicate any kind of white supremacy what so ever, the Dukes of Hazzard was not that kind of a show, the Dukes are good ole boys, and they never said one single slur word..

  4. I am all for The Dukes of Hazzard, you can find me on twitter, come and help me to get the Dukes of Hazzard back, sign in or sign up on twitter…

  5. They have set a new record when it comes to doing somthing so cruel like crushing our childhood, and they did crush our childhood by taking away our the Dukes of Hazzard, crushing somebody’s childhood should be against the law, i call it like i see it, most of us grew up with the Dukes of Hazzard, and they still don’t relize the fact that they are out voted, give it up Tv Land…

  6. DEAR TV LAND, I SWEAR, I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL JUSTICE IS SERVED FOR ALL THE DUKES OF HAZZARD FANS……GIVE ME THE DUKES OF HAZZARD OR GIVE ME DEATH….

  7. MY PREDICTION FOR TV LAND’S FUTURE IS, VERY LOW RATINGS DUE TO POOR CHOICE OF PROGRAMMING, SUCH AS MORE BLACK AMERICAN SITCOMS, INSTEAD OF GIVING PEOPLE WHAT THEY REALY WANT TO SEE, INCLUDING US, IF TV LAND DONT SHAPE UP SOON, THEN THERE WILL BE A GOOD CHANCE THAT THEY WILL BE GOING DOWN THE SHITTER.. THEY BETTER HURRY AND CHANGE THERE TUNE, BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE ALREADY CHANGING CHANNELS…

  8. Place the Dukes of Hazzard back on TV Land. There was nothing wrong with the show. It’s a family show and since the dukes has been off tv there a ton more world problems than just a symbol on a car which is totally misunderstood to begin with. The confederate flag has its history yes and there different opinions of yes. But If it anyway stood for racists acts or remarks Uncle Jesse would of made Bo and Luke scrape the flag off that car with their teeth. The Dukes of Hazzard was not only a family show, but it also teaches right from wrong. So there for I support the dukes and the general lee. I vow for the dukes of hazzard to be reinstated on tv land imediatelyl
