In March 2010, detectives from the Sex Crimes Squad of the New South Wales Police formed Strike Force Ruskin, to investigate allegations of sexual abuse on the set of the show. In 2012, it was reported that over 200 witnesses; including cast & crew and their friends, relatives and acquaintances; had been interviewed as part of the investigation process. In May 2012, detectives applied for, and were granted, an arrest warrant for a 63 year old man. Since then, detectives conducted extensive inquiries internationally to locate the man, including with the London Metropolitan Police. On August 8th, 2012, Robert Hughes was arrested in London, England, and charged with eleven offences against five girls between 1985 and 1990. Robert has always publicly denied the charges. The case, which went to trial in early 2014, resulted in Robert Hughes being found guilty of ten of the charges. Hughes was sentenced to a prison term of a maximum of ten years nine months, or a minimum term of six years, after which he could apply for parole. See more »

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 »
Surely one of the lamest shows ever to be produced on these shores and thats saying something. Even many of the lead actors didn't stick around for the duration. The fact that it ran for eight years is a sad indictment on the average intelligence and cultural nous of the Aussie viewer. It went round and round in circles, with repetitive gags and poorly-drawn characters. Arthur MacArthur, for god's sake. did they actually pay the writers of this show? I wonder if anyone checked their qualifications. There were tired gags about rural people and second-rate farce situations that were poor imitations of a thousand English and US sitcoms that had gone before. I think that's what I hate about it so much, that it appears no one involved wanted to make it memorable, original or clever, instead opting for the lowest common denominator each time.
