Jeff Altman as Deputy Hughie Hogg

Played by comedian Jeff Altman, Hughie Hogg is a fictional character on the American television series The Dukes of Hazzard. Hughie was Boss Hogg's equally crooked (maybe even more crooked) nephew.


Hughie drove a white VW Beetle with bull horns on the hood, similar to Boss Hogg's Caddy. He wore an all-white suit, but unlike Boss Hogg had a slender build. A con man and a disguise artist, Hughie seemed to completely lack any moral compass while his "Uncle Boss" deep down had a conscience.

Hughie first came to Hazzard as a temporary Sheriff when Sheriff Coltrane went on vacation.[1] This was apparently typically of Boss, who would call Hughie to come help with a particularly dastardly scheme to get rid of the Dukes, before Hughie would turn on Boss and out-smart him. Boss would end up throwing him out of Hazzard. Despite this, Boss would always give Hughie "one last chance".

In broadcast order:


  • Jeff Altman was apparently not able to reprise his role as Hughie in the 6th season episode "How to Succeed in Hazzard" and was replaced by another nephew of Boss's named Dewey (Hughie's older brother), which was an obvious parody of Donald Duck's 3 nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

  1. As seen in in the second season episode "Arrest Jesse Duke". However he was first introduced in the episode "Uncle Boss", produced early in the second season, but this episode was not broadcast until the third season (for unknown reasons). This only serves to confound the issue because, Enos is still the deputy despite having left for Los Angeles a few episodes before, and Daisy is still driving her yellow Plymouth Roadrunner that her cousins Bo and Luke had let run off a cliff the season before.
