When Brisbane radio station B105 organised a "Hey Dad..!" reunion in September 2009, nearly all cast members refused to take part, once they found out Robert Hughes was to be involved.

Each episode ends with a voiceover by one of the cast members, saying "Hey Dad..! is recorded in front of a studio audience. This has been a Gary Reilly Production for the Seven Network". Julie McGregor's version ends with "This is Betty speaking", while, in his earlier seasons, Ben Oxenbould's version ends with a stammer "...for the Se-Se-Se-Seven Network". See more »
