The Dukes of Hazzard - Episode 1

Ask anybody to name the greatest cars in TV history and the list is often topped by the General Lee. Controversy over confederate imagery aside, the Duke boys and their 1968 Dodge Charger somehow struck a chord with car lovers everywhere.

The first episode of The Dukes of Hazzard is a lot more adult-oriented because the show runners had no idea it would become beloved by kids. It does a great job presenting the characters, their motivations and all of the quirks in pretty short order.

...and the cars! While the General Lee takes center stage with its obnoxious orange paint and improbably jumps, the supporting cast of vehicles is nothing to sneeze at - from Daisy's 1973 Roadrunner to Roscoe's police Monaco to the rare muscle cars that get bumped around because in the 80's nobody knew they were rare... this show is a car lover's dream.
