"Granny Annie" is the tenth episode of the second season of The Dukes Of Hazzard.
When counterfeit $5 dollar bills start turning up, Bo and Luke try to figure out where the bills came from, and it turns out that the bills came from their old friend Granny Annie Coggins (Laurene Tuttle), a local artist who is operating a small-time counterfeiting scheme. Boss Hogg hears of it, and he wants the engraving plates that are used make the bills, because he wants to sell the plates to professional counterfeiter Big Jim Downey (George Murdock) for $25,000. Boss has Granny Annie arrested, and confiscates the engraving plates. Bo and Luke set out to clear Granny Annie's name by stealing the plates back and throwing them into a lake. When Bo and Luke swipe the plates from Big Jim, Big Jim thinks that it is a double cross, so he kidnaps Boss, who he thinks is the one who stole the plates. An emotional Rosco pleads to Bo and Luke to track down Big Jim, and keep Boss from getting killed.

Bo decides to go after Rosco, turning the General around. Rosco calls Boss to tell him the boys are following him. Rosco tries to call Enos to deal with the boys but Enos and Granny are singing over the C.B. Rosco jumps a creek to get away from the boys, and due to the oil pressure the boys fall out. Luke asks what now. Bo suggests dynamite and Luke says to use the blowtorch instead. Luke says they need Granny.
Boss locks up the plates and calls Big Jim. He changes the price to 50,000 enraging Jim. Rosco leaves to arrest Bo and Luke.

Boss calls Rosco over the C.B. and tells him to come back to the Boar’s Nest. Bo and Luke listen to them and Rosco gets his car free. Luke asks Bo if he cares who they take the plates from and Bo says no.
Boss hands over the plates and Big Jim takes them. Vic breaks Boss’ door to prove a point as Bo and Luke arrive, and Rosco reminds Boss about his greed. Luke sabotages the car and Bo, Luke, and B.B. follow Vic and Big Jim. When their car breaks down, Bo distracts them so B.B. can put a smoke grenade under the car. Bo and B.B. take Vic and Jim away from the car for Luke to take the plates. They leave headed to Hound Dog Lake. Suspicious, Jim finds the plates are gone.
Jim and Vic return to the Boar’s Nest. They tie up Rosco and Big Jim takes his money back, telling Boss about his assumption of the people who work for him. He takes Boss with him, intending to kill him. Rosco gets free enough to use the C.B. and calls Enos but after not getting a response he tries Bo, Luke, and B.B. He tells them what happened and pleads with them to help. They ask which way they went and Rosco says they went toward Dixville County and he thanks them.
Bo, Luke, and B.B. head out and they call in Jesse and Daisy. Rosco get’s free and heads out to join them. Luke has Bo take Calico Road.
