"Strange Visitor to Hazzard" is the fifteenth episode of the seventh season of The Dukes Of Hazzard.
There have been some UFO sightings in Hazzard County lately, and Bo and Luke are starting to think that people are crazy, until what seems to be an alien (Felix Silla) hides in the General Lee and comes back to the Duke farm with them. When Boss hears of it, he wants to take the visitor and use him as a tourist attraction. At the same time, a pair of thieves named Mickey Larsen (Dennis Burkley) and Buck Simmons (Britt Leach) are casing Hazzard in preparation for a planned robbery of the Hazzard Bank.
While driving in the General, Bo, Luke, and Daisy listen to Elton on the WHOGG radio talking about a flying saucer scare in Hazzard. He says Jed Barton claimed to see a UFO and Bo expresses annoyance. The radio continues how Zeke Ferris claims he shot at a UFO. When Elton tells them not to panic, Bo sarcastically tells Daisy not to panic. Daisy remarks she thinks there is actually something to all this and Bo and Luke complain.
Balladeer: In Hazzard, lots of weird things have happened. From Sy Erzo’s two headed calf to widow Barlow’s second marriage. But lately, folks are seeing weird things in the sky, even them that ain’t drinking moonshine.
While the Dukes laugh about it, they hear a call from a man named Clyde who says he just saw a flying saucer. Luke remarks the man sounds excited and Bo laughs. Luke calls Clyde while Daisy gets Bo to stop laughing. Luke tries to calm Clyde down and Bo asks him if the UFO is still there, meaning it as a joke and annoying Luke and Daisy. Luke tells him to go home and get some coffee. Bo suspects he’s been drinking, saying it sounds like he’s had a whole lot stronger already. Daisy argues with them and says they can’t all be drinking. Luke says while he enjoys science fiction he doesn’t believe it. They see Clyde coming toward them and both cars swerve, Clyde taking out a number of mailboxes. The Dukes stop to check on him and after making sure Clyde is alright, they leave.
Balladeer: The next morning however, right before dawn, Enos was returning from a night patrol when he was passing Skunk Hollow and a most amazing thing happened.
While Enos is driving he sees a bright light. He pulls over to see what it is and gets out of the car. When the light leaves he jumps back in his car before pulling out the C.B. and making a report over the C.B. However his radio fries out and he speeds back to town.
Town of Hazzard
Boss calls together a town meeting over the empty treasury. He talks to Rosco about how they can get a new revenue. Bo and Luke go to see Cooter to get gas in the General. Cooter asks if they heard the morning news before quoting the radio to them about three more UFO sightings. Bo and Luke agree that people are getting carried away but Daisy insists that something must be happening. Cooter also expresses disbelief, joking that the aliens would want to attend the dance on Saturday. Bo join in, saying they must be ‘small planet folks’ and Cooter adds that they are coming to the dance to do the moonwalk. Enos suddenly speeds up, driving recklessly and starts yelling about the UFO sighting. Bo laments ‘not you too’. Enos screams again about it and Cooter tells him to settle down and explain. The Dukes and Cooter try to calm Enos down and Enos describes it before rushing off to tell Rosco and Boss, driving all over the road. Daisy says Enos doesn’t drink but Bo says that’s just how Enos is. Enos barges into Boss and Rosco’s office and tells them what he saw. Boss is shocked and listens to him while Rosco pinches his nose. Rosco asks Boss if he’s going to believe Enos but Boss and Rosco leave.
Boss and Rosco head to Skunk Hollow. Rosco says Boss never believed in UFO’s and Boss says he didn’t, but Enos just claimed to see one and Boss is sure people are ready to believe in it so he’s going to make the place a monument. Rosco protests that it stinks out there and Boss disregards it.
Two thieves, Mickey and Buck, decide to camp out and get some rest in Skunk Hollow. As they are trying to rest, Little Cousin comes close to investigate, startling them but remaining unseen. The two go to sleep. Bo, Luke, and Daisy stop and the two hear them. Bo teases Daisy about seeing a flying saucer and Luke and Bo joke about the crab apples. Daisy since they are there they should get some and she’ll bake a crab apple pie. They agree and Bo gets some sacks from the trunk. The three start gathering apples. Bo asks Daisy about making jelly too.
Boss and Rosco arrive and are surprised to see the Dukes are there. The Dukes see them too and the two men hide in the bushes. Rosco says they are under arrest for trespassing and Bo asks what is he talking about. Boss says they just declared the area county property. Rosco says he wants the apples. The three Dukes dump all the apples on Boss and Rosco and take off in the General, making Rosco and Boss happy. They chase after the Dukes to ensure they won’t come back to Skunk Hollow. The Dukes are shocked that Boss and Rosco tried to arrest them over picking wild crab apples. Luke plans to lose them by jumping the car. Rosco and Boss let them go and head back to Skunk Hollow.
Daisy is surprised when they head back and Luke realizes they just don’t want the Dukes around Skunk Hollow. The three decide to drop off the groceries as home before going to investigate. Boss and Rosco return to Skunk Hollow. Boss says he’s going to make strange marks on the ground and for Rosco to take some powder and make a big circle so they can burn it to look like a space ship engine. As the two talk Mickey gets an idea. He wants to pretend like an army of aliens are lying in wait in Skunk Hollow to mess with the locals. While working on the fake landing, Rosco accidentally lights Boss on fire.
Bo, Luke, and Daisy arrive and Jesse says one of these days they are going to miss the stop and go through the house. The three apologize as they get the groceries and Daisy screams, seeing Little Cousin in the back seat. Bo, Luke, and Jesse all look too before Little Cousin teleports away. The four start talking, all shocked. Daisy sees them on the roof and the Dukes approach. Luke and Daisy call them down and Jesse thinks they don’t understand. Luke tries to communicate. Luke reminds them Enos saw something in Skunk Hollow. Little Cousin comes down, shakes all their hands, and goes into the house with them. Daisy decides to call Enos.

Balladeer: Even in Hazzard, you never know. And so ended one of the most unusual events in Hazzard in quite a while. Boss was awful peeved at losing out on his UFO scam, particularly when it wasn’t no scam. Which, ironic, is what makes it so real in Hazzard.
Rosco, Boss, Enos, Daisy, and Jesse arrive. They all wave goodbye.
