17 Ridiculous 'Hey Dude' Moments You Forgot About

May 06, 2014 | Updated May 07, 2014

"Hey Dude" turns 25 years old this year. Yes, that will make you all feel incredibly old. The Nickelodeon show aired from 1989 to 1991 and had a second life as part of Nick's '90s Block in 2011. "Hey Dude" followed teens who spent an entire summer on the Bar None Dude Ranch, run by Mr. Ernst, a city-bred man trying to rough it with his son, Buddy.

Many of the teens from the original cast have disappeared from the spotlight, and Christine Taylor ("Dodgeball" and "Zoolander") is known as the show's breakout star. But to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary, most of the stars will come together again on HuffPost Live tomorrow, May 7 at 4:30 p.m. for a "Hey Dude" reunion. Produced in part with the ATX Television Festival, the special will feature Kelly Brown (Brad Taylor), David Lascher (Ted McGriff), Josh Tygiel (Buddy Ernst), Jonathan Galkin (Jake Decker and Debi Kalman (Lucy) as they reminisce about their days on the ranch.

But before you settle in to an afternoon at Bar None, enjoy most ridiculous "Hey Dude" moments you forgot about.
