I loved this show.
9 June 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This was the best show on when I was a kid. I don't know actually how good the acting was cause I didn't know how to judge it then. But, I loved it. It was my favorite show. I'd still watch it if it was on. I thought it was soo cool that they lived on a ranch. And the actors were so funny. I wanted to go live with them. Whenever I see one of the actors on another TV show or a movie I identify them by their character on Hey Dude. Anyways, I loved this show. I wish it was still on the air.
