The Dukes of Hazzard Wiki

Doc Henry Petticord M.D. (Duke vs. Duke) is a reoccurring character from the Dukes of Hazzard.


Season 1[]

Double Sting[]

He is called into the Hazzard Jail to look over Tom Colt after he, Bo, and Luke are arrested. Jesse bails the boys out and they are about to leave, but he yells for them to hold it because no one is going anywhere. He goes upstairs and tells Rosco that no one is allowed to leave. Jesse asks what is he doing there and he remarks ‘tending the sick Jesse, what the hell else do I do?’ Bo says he didn’t hit Tom that hard and Petticord moves over to Bo, explaining to them that he needs them all to listen good. He says that he doesn’t want to start a panic but it looks like a plague and until he knows more as the County Health Officer he is declaring the jail and everybody in it quarantined. He tells them that he is a lovable old country doctor and hasn’t had a good epidemic since the hog cholera of 1943 and that was pigs, but this looks like pneumonic or bubonic plague.

He places the entire Court House under quarantine before leaving.

He gets a call from Bo to come to the Duke Farm after Cooter was knocked unconscious by Luke in a boxing spar. After checking on Cooter he is rushed by Luke, Bo, and Daisy.
