From episode 20 and onward, Betty often displays an inability to correctly pronounce the words "architect" and "secretary". In prior episodes, she never has any difficulty in saying those words properly. 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 »
Did this show only run in Australia and Germany or why are all those who commented on it from either of those countries?
I really liked this show. I used to watch it every afternoon when it was on the air here..which was sometime in the early 90s. I don't think I've ever seen it since then, and I had no idea that the main characters were replaced until 5 minutes ago when I read it here.
But I did enjoy the episodes I saw a lot- the episodes from the very early seasons. They were entertaining, funny, and the characters were very likeable.
