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.
