Show Summary

Blending live-action and animation, FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman revolves around an animated dog named Ruff Ruffman, who develops, produces, and hosts his own reality TV show. Ruff runs the show from his state-of-the-art headquarters, otherwise known as his dog house, and issues wild and wacky real-world challenges to a group of 10 to 14-year-old kid contestants. Each episode follows the kids (real kids, not actors) as they tackle their challenges: Everything from training a cat for a commercial to staying afloat in a self-made boat to performing stand-up comedy to blasting off for a shuttle mission at Space Camp. And true to the reality of reality TV, the kids have NO idea what they're getting into until they're off on their challenges.

  • Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman is a great entertaining, humorous and educational reality/animation TV Show on PBS.

    Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman is a great entertaining, humorous and educational reality/animation TV Show on PBS. It features a group of real life kids trying to solve puzzles, accomplish goals and complete challenges to get points at the end. Usually the challenges involve something relating to some problem that Ruff needs to get solved or something he wants to know about. At the end of the show all of the kids go back to Studio G and Ruff calculates their team points based on how well they completed the challenges, then Ruff awards individual bonus points to the kids who did something that helped their team complete their goal. The kid who gets the most points at the end of the show gets a (usually humorous) prize.moreless
  • PBS Kids finally makes a great educational show.

    Cyberchase and Arthur will remain the best PBS kids shows ever made. However,this show should deserve a crown for being the best. The show is about a dog named Ruff who tries to solve problems that he has with kids who are trained. Now,Ruff is animated,but the kids are not. And of course,this is a reality show. But if it's educational,it's awesome. Thank god,Ruff doesn't do any of that "Ask the audience simple questions so easy a caveman can answer them" thing,he has trained kids. and every character is not such an idiot. Ruff is very funny with his funny phrases and crazy antics he does all the time. Blossom is his sidekick(no,not the Powerpuff Girl) who is actually smart than Ruff,but never talks and is a cat,while Ruff is a dog,the kids are not such brats.When someone wins the game,they actually feel happy for them instead of like "I should've won that!". The prizes are also great such as movie tickets,Elefun games,BBQ passes and many more. And of course,this show is funny. The humor relies on Ruff doing something hilrailous or anything like that. This is what PBS kids needed and I hope it returns for season 6.moreless
