New interview with Christine Taylor

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

C’mon down to the Bar None Ranch and follow the summer antics of ranch owner Benjamin Ernst (David Brisbin) and his diverse crew of teens as they work and play on a dude ranch in Arizona. Stars Christine Taylor as lifeguard Melody, David Lascher as senior staff member Ted, Kelly Brown as horse trainer Brad, Joe Torres as Hopi Indian native Danny, Debrah Kalman as ranch hand Lucy and Josh Tygiel as Ernst’s son Buddy.

Hey Dude premiered in 1989 on Nickelodeon and quickly became a fan favorite with its hip, young cast and comedic if not touching storylines set against an authentic Southwestern backdrop. So saddle up for fun in the sun out on the range with Hey Dude Season One!

Those who grew up in the late '80s to early '90s have a warm spot in their hearts for Hey Dude, Nickelodeon's first live-action show. The teenage employees of the Bar None Ranch in Arizona come back from the off-season to discover the ranch has been sold to a tenderfoot named Mr. Ernst (David Brisbin), whose foolishness drives many of the series' story lines--the ones that aren't driven by innocent teenage high jinks. Ted (David Lascher) is a would-be Romeo with eyes for Brad (Kelly Brown), a rich girl who's also an expert rider. Danny (Joe Torres), a Hopi native, often gets caught up in Ted's hormonal schemes, while Melody (Christine Taylor, who went on to play Marcia in The Brady Bunch Movie) does her best to keep everything on an even keel. Rounding out the cast are Buddy (Josh Tygiel), Mr. Ernst's disgruntled son, who would rather be skateboarding back in New Jersey, and Lucy (Debrah Kalman), a genuine cowgirl who's the only one on the ranch who really knows how the place runs. The plots are pretty silly (frequently involving competition among the teens), the dialogue thin, the acting wooden, and the costumes day-glo bright, but there's a sweetness to it all that hooked young viewers of the time. It doesn't hurt that all the teens have a fresh-faced cuteness. Hey Dude: Season 1 has the first 13 episodes; sadly, the only extra is an interview with Christine Taylor, but her warm memories give the interview plenty of charm. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 1 on DVD: Finally!! April 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nickelodeon has finally gotten off their butts and licensed some of their shows to Shout Factory for DVD releases. I have the entire series taken from old VHS tapes so it will be nice to get the episodes in crystal clear DVD quality and for a great price as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big on nostalgia and fun July 10, 2011
Judge Dawn Hunt, DVD Verdict--From a time when a character still had to sheepishly confess his parents were divorced, this is a little gem of a series. While there are definite elements of slapstick, most of the time the cast manages to hold on to the edge just enough to keep from tipping over into outright silliness. As with many sitcoms, a number of the plots revolve around lying, specifically a little lie which snowballs until the characters are forced to tell the truth and then hugs are doled out.

One of the things that really struck me was how the teenagers all interacted with Buddy. I was really surprised they were so patient with him, going out of their way to make sure he was listened to and included. I understand that's how it was written but it's a dynamic that's rarely present nowadays. Any show that has teenagers and middle-schoolers together more often than not has tension between those characters. Usually it's the younger kids wanting attention and the older kids not wanting to be anywhere near the brats.

Another thing which stood out was the careful editing. It's like a neon sign now but back then I didn't know Brad wasn't riding that galloping horse, or Ted wasn't really in danger of being kicked by a stallion. It is very much a product of its time and I like that about it. I enjoy watching for those moments and seeing how they were made to convince an untrained eye what was occurring on screen.

This series has found its way into a lot of people's hearts, and I believe one of the reasons for that is more than half of the cast never went on to do anything else. Thus, there is no getting a fix for any of the actors. They're trapped in celluloid forever for fans here but nowhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! April 14, 2011
Finally! This show was one of, if not the best original series created by Nickelodeon. I can't wait for this release! Let's just hope they release the rest of the series as well. It would also be great to have some bonus material too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dvd set!!! April 27, 2011
By Donny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
wrote on July 29th 2011. I received my HeyDude dvd set the other day, i can't believe how crisp and clear the picture quality is, i'm blown away by it,the colors are so vibrant, of course it helps alot when you have an hdmi cable, but even without it its incredible,they did an outstanding job remastering it, the sound is great too, i was a huge fan of this show growing up as a teenager, its so great to see it again, brings back alot of memories,the interview with Christine Taylor was very good, she talks about her experiences with the show and how it was made, i remember having a big crush on her back then, thank you so much Shout Factory for finally making this show available on dvd,hopefully this will sell alot and season 2 will be available soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hyperventales. July 8, 2011
By Shiver
I know I should probably wait for me to get my hands on this long awaited DVD but I just can't wait. Thank you! Thank you whoever that is bringing this great TV show on DVD. I've been waiting for a long time for this to come out and will be buying this in a few days. I'll be sure to give it a better review when that time comes but still cannot contain my enthusiasm knowing that I get to watch one of my favorite childhood shows. (now if only Salute Your Shorts came to DVD *hint hint)

5.0 out of 5 stars Saddle up for another gift from Shout Factory July 21, 2011
First of all thank you Shout Factory. You guys are great. First you release Designing Women and make me very happy. Yeah Im a guy but I don't care I love those chicks. Then you make all my dreams come true by releasing the remainder of Dragnet. Yay!!! And now Hey Dude. I loved this show when I was a kid. I was six when it came on and the only thing I ever watched on Nickelodeon was Nick at Nite so this show was perfect for me. Mr Ernst was my favorite character. Why? I guess I'm not sure. I remember hating Brad and thinking she was very unatttactive. Boy was I wrong. Kelly Brown (Brad) is smoking hot. So after watching one episode and not really liking it like I used to she kept me watching and I rediscovered after 22 years just how good this show was. Can't wait for future seasons to be released. Again thank you Shout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Nickelodeon!! July 4, 2011
OMG!! I am exstatic that Hey Dude is finally being released on DVD! Thank you Nickelodeon for finally releasing some of the greatest shows ever! I hope you don't stop at Season 1. You did that with Clarissa Explains it All, & The Adventures of Pete & Pete. So not cool! Fans of these shows would like to own the whole series & not bits & pieces. I understand about the money & sales, but what about the fans? I hope you will also release Salute your Shorts, Wild & Crazy Kids & Roundhouse! PLEASE!! Thanks again for releasing Hey Dude! The 90's RULE!
