Trivia

"Hey Dad..!" shared a studio with Australian drama series Home and Away (1988). At midnight early Saturday, the Home and Away set would be dismantled, the crew working all night to install the Hey Dad..! set. Following the Hey Dad..! tapings late Saturday, the Hey Dad..! set would be taken down, and the Home and Away set re-installed. This was a regular occurrence for the duration of the series.

Goofs

At one point during the show's first season, Martin states that the street address of the Kelly house is 33 Jacaranda Avenue. In the series finale, Greg mentions that the address is 26 Jacaranda Avenue. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Worst TV Show Ever Produced
29 April 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews



Hey Dad would have to be the worst TV show in the Universe. I am still trying to figure out why it ran for some long. Put it this way, I've laughed more in just one episode of Different Strokes than I have in the entire series of Hey Dad.
