The Dukes of Hazzard Wiki

Merle is a minor character from the Dukes of Hazzard.


Hazzard Hustle[]

Swifty calls him the day before the Dixie Derby, telling him ‘the deal is on.’ He explains he is working with Boss Hogg and wants a quick flash of the Derby the next day. Merle asks if he has another load of suckers, to which Swifty says he does in Rapaho. Swifty says they want to know the winner five minutes before the wire service call. He asks if he’ll get his regular cut and Swifty agrees.

The next morning he finds a place to hide above the race to see who wins.

After Country Dancer wins the race, he calls the number Swifty gave him and informs the person who answered who won the race.
