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.Read more ›
Season 1 includes 13 "bar none" eps, each more over-the-top than the next. What I always liked about "Hey Dude" was that it was a kid's show that always made comedy out of everyday issues that kids have. Some of my favorite eps include "Ted's Saddle" and "Ted and Brad Get Handcuffed".
The series includes a strong cast of characters, including David Brisbin as the NJ native turned cowboy, Mr. Ernst, David Lascher as Ted McGriff (you gotta love that name), Kelly Brown as the resident rich girl Brad, Joe Torres (who is still very much alive) as Danny and Christine "Marcia Marcia Marcia" Taylor as Melody.
Shout! included a brand-new interview with Christine (it's about 15 minutes in total) which was pretty interesting to watch.
This is packaged in a clear plastic case, and an episode guide is included on the inlay, the discs also include a color silkscreen picture on each (see scans of everything I posted).
Relive all the memories and enjoy all the hijinks in the wild west with season one of "Hey Dude". Here's hoping Shout! puts out further seasons of this western classic. Just be sure to watch out for those man-eating jack rabbits and that killer cacti.
