Watch out for an episode of the original Dukes Of Hazzard series entitled "Double Sting" which first aired on 11th May 1979. Two robbers disguise themselves as 'the boys'

After Bo and Luke are arrested for fighting with stranger Tom Colt at the Boar's Nest, the local physician suspects that Colt has a case of the plague and quarantines the jail with the police, Bo, Luke and Uncle Jesse there. Then the bank gets robbed by two crooks disguised as Laurel and Hardy and Daisy gives chase.

I can understand Neil. It was first aired way back in 1979 when you were only about 40. Laughing

Came across the following paragraph on this website http://www.guide-books.co.uk/bairnsfather.html

The Staffordshire company, Grimwades, produced all manner of pottery items - complete tea services, vases, shaving mugs, bon bon dishes etc etc - decorated with the immortal cartooons of Bruce Bairnsfather depicting Old Bill and his pals, Bert and Alf, in the trenches.

I saw all episodes from the first 4 seasons from The Dukes Of Hazzard (including the one Ross mentioned), and although it appears to be a bit dated, I can watch that show anytime. A guy can never get bored watching Daisy Duke. Laughing
