Locations Detail


   Searching information about the set of Hazzard at the Warner Bros. Studios, I stumbled even in the pictures that I had always taken in 2009 at Universal Studios. Looking closely at these images, I realized that I have visited a set used for other two legendary show that accompanied my childhood: I speak of "Knight Rider" and "Diff'rent Strokes". To be more precise, in fact, in the episode 16 of season six of "Diff'rent Strokes", Arnold and his family go to visit Universal Studios and stumble on the set of "Knight Rider" while they are shooting an episode of the TV series. The set in question is set at Universal Studios and it's the Mexican set and below I will show you the pictures taken by me in 2009, by comparing frames taken from the episode. In the oval red, you can see the Mexican set, where you can clearly see its proximity to the set of "Jaws" that reproduces the port of Amity.

   Below you can see an enlargement of the map where you can see with more detail the Mexican set. The red arrow indicades the spot where Michael comes into the picture before the explosion and the two red rectangles indicate the point where the two cars (where Arnold and Dudley hide) are parked.

   And here one of the first pictures I took on the set, where you can see the square and some buildings on two of its sides.

   And here we can start the comparison: of course the set over the years has slightly changed, but the structure is always the same. As you can see has changed the door of the building (perhaps a church) at the top right, and they added a shed between the two buildings and a fountain in the corner of the square.

   Here we see the detail of the door behind the crew. You may notice that the inlays around the arch and the wooden door remained unaffected.

   Another comparison where you can see the front door and the inlays around it.

   Here we can see the roof on the left side of the door. As you can see from the frame extracted from the episode, this shed is behind the director.

   The following frame shows the moment when Arnold and Dudley trying to climb in one of the parked cars. As you can see from the buildings in the background, we can see the door with inlays on the left and the door of the church on the right.

   Below another photo taken by me during my tour of 2009. The position should be the one where the police car was parked.

   However, in this photo you can see the Mexican set from another point of view, that is just from the road where the criminals fled.

Click to enlarge!

   This is always a different point of view of the set where we can see the building located in the corner in the previous photo. The curious thing is that this building is a huge warehouse, as you can see from the aerial photographs of the area.

Click to enlarge!

   Here are some photos of the set found on Internet. As you can see the cars saw in the episode were positioned where the Universal's shuttles are parked.

   This is another point of view of the square that shows the point from which the criminals escape.

Click to enlarge!

   Two other views of the square where you can see the building with the door and the inlays and the building that is supposed to be a church.

   To finish the visit of this set, in the next two images you can see in detail the building with the large door and its inlays.
