''Hey, Dude!'' was a sitcom that aired on {{Nickelodeon}} during the late 1980s and early 1990s. It followed the misadventures of the teenage summer help at the Bar None Ranch in Arizona, as well as its owner, an incompetent Mr. Benjamin Ernst. Mr. Ernst, after years of being a nebbish pencil-pusher, gets the urge to be a cowboy; so, he buys the Bar None and becomes its manager. Since his only qualifications (if you can call them qualifications) are his enthusiasm for bolo ties and ten-gallon hats, he's quickly in over his head. Consequently, he has little time to supervise the young staff, who leap on the opportunity to romance each other and concoct schemes... in the most wholesome possible way, of course. The staff are:

The 'muffin' served by Ted and Danny is practically inedible, but the girls cook a meal containing fish, which Buddy is allergic to.

* PutOnABus: When it was discovered that Ted didn't pass all his classes the previous school year, he had to leave the ranch for summer school. He made one later guest appearance (in which he snuck back to the ranch cause he missed everyone) before returning for good a little while later.

* WillTheyOrWontThey: Between Brad and Ted. Although she usually thinks he's childish, there are lots of hints that she really likes him. Ted succeeds in getting her to date him once, or maybe twice, during the series. Kyle fills in when Ted leaves the show.
* WomenAreWiser: Played with a bit most of the time. While the girls are generally closer to Earth than most of the guys, Brad is typically only slightly closer, and Danny is typically closer than either girl [[NobleSavage (probably because he's a Native American)]]. Played perfectly straight in the BattleOfTheSexes episode, where the guys were suddenly incompetent at everything.
