    Rest in Peace, James Best

    Along with so many classic cartoons like He-Man and Transformers, I grew up watching The Dukes of Hazzard. Childhood would never been the same without Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Say hi to Uncle Jesse and Boss Hogg for us.

    He was best known for Sheriff Roscoe, but in truth he had a long and prolific career as an actor. Thanks for some great memories, James. "Hoo hoo, I love it, I love it."

    He will be missed... i loved this guys shtick as Roscoe..... he was a riot!!! RIP
    Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
    But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
    but not as brightly lit... a DARKSIDE.

    He will definitely be missed. I grew up on the Dukes, watching it with my cousins, and loved Rosco.

    What a shame. I grew up watching the Dukes of Hazard and can recall the bulk of the opening song with out any help. My brother and I both had the 4" and 8" Bo and Luke with the General Lees along with all of the other Duke merch, the Etcha Sketch games, books, etc. Best did a wonderful job playing Rosco. He always made me laugh as a kid.

    I remember how they used to sometimes end the show with the recording of that strange laugh he did as Roscoe.
