Posted by David Lambert
Hey Dude: Season 1 is now on DVD, so saddle up and mosey on over to the Bar None Ranch, where well-meaning owner Mr. Ernst (David Brisbin, "ER") tries his best to ride herd on his teenage staff, who always seem to be getting into some sort of scrape or other as they work and play out on the range: 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, Debra Kalman as ranch hand Lucy and Josh Tygiel as Ernst's son buddy. On DVD for the first time! Originally aired on Nickelodeon 1989-91, with reruns from 1991-99. Long requested by fans, it's #5 on TVShowsOnDVD.com's Most Requested Unreleased Shows for 5 years running! All 13 episodes from the first season on a 2-DVD set.
Yes, you read it correctly! Nickelodeon's new deal with Shout! has struck gold for fans, bringing Hey Dude - Season 1 to DVD at long last! According to Amazon's pre-order listing (which went up over the weekend), the highly anticipated 2-DVD set will come to stores on July 19th. Cost is a mere $19.93 SRP, and you can lock in your copy at a discount using the provided link. Information sent to retailers by Shout!'s distributor, Vivendi Entertainment, shows that the running time is approx. 325 minutes, with full screen video and English stereo sound. They also had the front cover of the box, shown below, which may or may not be the final version (and so it could be subject to change). [UPDATE - We've replaced the original 2D "flat" art we had posted with a 3D picture of the box that was added to Amazon's listing] Check it out:
