Part game show, part reality TV, and part spoof, Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman features real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal animated host — a dog named Ruff Ruffman. Produced by WGBH, the series mixes live action with animation and breaks the mold with its educational and comical take on America's hottest television genre. Targeting 6- to 8-year-olds, the series is spontaneous, unscripted, and full of surprises.
At the Plum Landing website, kids can play ecology games and explore exotic ecosystems. Plum also encourages kids to investigate their own worlds — why veg out on the couch when you can be outside doing something fabulous?
