  • FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman

    FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman (2008 - 2009)
    Television (Comedy, Family, Animation, Reality-TV and 1 More) Producer FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman is a new reality game show for kids. Blending live-action and animation, FETCH! 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 10-14 year old kid contestants. Each of the 20 new episodes 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. Written by Anonymous
