Pull out those cowboy hats and boots, folks. It’s time to saddle up one more time and head back out to the famed Bar None Ranch. That’s because this spring, Nickelodeon and Shout! Factory will finally release Nickelodeon’s classic live action teen-based sitcom Hey Dude in its entirety.
All five seasons of Nickelodeon’s Hey Dude will be released in one single DVD box set on Tuesday, March 10th. The answer to NBC’s own famed and beloved Saturday morning teen sitcom Saved By The Bell, Hey Dude was the polar opposite of that other sitcom. Rather than take the standard high school backdrop and stories, Hey Dude put a group of teens out in the wild west (so to speak) and watched them work and grow together. While it may have been a teen-centric sitcom, the show’s scritps along with its backdrop and the cast’s acting completely set it apart from Saved By The Bell and all of the other teen based sitcoms and dramas of the day. Now the show’s original audiences will get to experience that originality for the first time again along with a whole new generation of audiences. Those original audiences will be reminded with this set, of what once made programming for younger viewers so great while today’s younger viewers will see potentially for the first time what once made such programming great.
Hey Dude: The Complete Series will be released on DVD on Tuesday, March 10th. It will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart stores across America. Pricing information for the box set is not currently available. However, audiences can keep up with that information as well as information on other titles from Shout! Factory online at:
