Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman
Part game show, part reality TV, and part spoof, this series features real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal animated host - a dog named Ruff Ruffman. It mixes live-action with animation, and breaks the mold with its educational and comical take on America's newest television genre. Targeting six- to ten-year-olds, the series is spontaneous, unscripted, and full of surprises.

Gearing Up for Getting Ruff's Goat (Episode #418Z)
KQED Kids: Mon, Sep 1, 2014 -- 4:00 AM
All of the Cat Grooming shows are competing with Ruff's ratings and he's desperate to find the mythical Helmet of Victory that will reverse his fortunes. Uncle MacRuffmantosh calls with news that he thinks he's located the Helmet on a faraway mountaintop, so Ruff plans to ride his trusty tricycle up the mountain to retrieve the prize. (Unfortunately, the tricycle doesn't work so well on mountainous slopes.) So Ruff sends Brian, Bethany and Talia to meet with a bicycle expert and physics professor. Meanwhile, in an effort to get some "grooming" into his show, he sends Liza to learn how to groom a goat.
