Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

I bought Season 1 downloads at iTunes years ago -- and then the rest of it never came out! Let's not be seeing that, I hope. I'd like to have these DVD sets. Thanks for getting on that finally. It's only been...22 years!

While I didn't watch much TV growing up, I did catch a few shows while visiting relatives or friends. One I got hooked on was Hey Dude! Season 1 just hit DVD, and I snapped it up. The show doesn't quite hold up as well as I remember it, but it is still fun.

This show originally aired from 1989-1991 and was one of Nickelodeon's first scripted shows produced. Right there, it holds a place in television history, right?

The show follows the misadventures of the staff of a dude ranch in Arizona. While all the sets were constructed, it was filmed on an actual guest ranch in Arizona, giving it a very real feeling.

In the first episode, we meet the teen staff. The three returning staff members are Ted (David Lascher) who has just been promoted to senior staff (whatever that means). There's Melody (Christine Taylor) who is the lifeguard at the rarely seen pool. Rounding out this trio is Danny (Joe Torres), a Hopi Indian. The new girl on the block is Brad (Kelly Brown). She's rich yet is working at the ranch because she loves horses. On the adult front, there's Lucy (Debrah Kalman). She's in charge of the stables and is kind but firm.

As the series opens, the ranch has just been bought by Benjamin Ernst (David Brisbin), and he's moved out there from New Jersey with his son Buddy (Josh Tygiel). Mr. E doesn't know his way around the ranch and is often trying to come up with ways to advertise that don't quite work out. He's your typical bumbling adult on a kid's show, but he does have his moments that show he's much smarter than he normally looks.

The plots for these episodes are usually fairly light and fun. The guys take on the girls to prove who is the best.

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.
