Noooooooo! Really? You are going to cancel the best show on tv ok, Phineas and Ferb is up there too. Please, please dont cancel it. What do we need to do to keep this show going? Recruit people to watch it? Well do it. Find sponsors to give you money? Well do it. Whats it going to take????
John commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 02.04.12
Many words come to mind do describe the cancellation of Fetch with Ruff Ruffman, "Travesty", "Injustice", "Horrible nightmare from which the world may never awake". Being of somewhat elevated age, I have endured the cancellation of many quality shows over the years, but I can say with complete candor that I have never been compelled to add my voice to a chorus of disappointed fans until now. WGBH simply must reconsider this decision and this time make the right choice. This show must go on.

I typed "4 to 99" with a dash! The dash was removed! D
Rita commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 12.19.11
Please, please, please bring back Fetch! Its such a great show, my 7 and 5 year old boys love it! And we, the parents, do too! Good educational shows that covers the Fetch age range 499 is difficult to find, especially one that covers such a large variety of subjects science, history, math, engineering, not to mention all the creativity exercises!
diana commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 10.28.11
Please bring back Fetch our whole family loves this show. We record the shows and watch them over and over.
McKenzie commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 10.16.11
Fetch! is my 4 year old daughters favorite show. We watch on Demand and have purchased at least one season on iTunes. She will be devastated to hear that there will be no new seasons of Fetch! It is wonderful that there are actual people on the show and it is not 100 animated. All the science is so great. My 4yo has learned so much. I hate to see such a great show go away! Dont Cancel Fetch!!!!
Norman commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 10.15.11
My 6 year old has watched your episodes on TV and since last November the first four seasons on the computer. They are well written and informative on many topics. It is sad that there will be no season 6 and she cried when I told her tonight.
Jack commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 08.22.11
i have seen every episode from seasons 15 at least 10 times and am starting again right now. i have signed the petition at petitiononline.com 8 times and done many facebook things to help save the show including creating a page. i am 17 and still love it which shows how much i care about the show. you have to bring it back, not just for me but for all who love this show. my name is jack sisson and we must save ruff ruffman. long live ruff ruffman.

PLEASE DON"T CANCEL FETCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE BRING BACK FETCH!!!!!!!!!!! All six of my children LOVE Fetch it is such an amazing show! Please reconsider your decision to cancel this terrific and educational program. My 10 year old and my nine year old have always wanted to be Fetchers. Ruff Ruffman rocks and gives great challenges he deserves to be brought back!
Abbi commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 08.01.11
PLEASE PLEASE bring back Fetch! It is my daughters favorite show. It is the only show I will watch with her as all of the other childrens tv she watches my brain cry!
Amy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.29.11
The oldest four of my five children LOVE Fetch! We aould be so sad to see it go. They have even begged me to let them apply to be on the show. Please reconsider and keep making Fetch! Please!!!
Kandy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.15.11
and also, the MAIN reason probably why fetch was cancelled is because they put in new shows to keep kids entarained WELL GUESS WHAT PBS, YOUR NEW SHOWS ARE HORRIBLE SUPER WHY, WILD KRATTS, WORD WORLD, as these shows you replaced with good ones are horrible! They person who played fetch said " We could not compete with Seasme Street,Cyber Chase, and Electric Company" Electric Company?!!?! Thats the worst show ever! Fetch should replace that show! And the first 5 seasin i bet were popular and someday PBS will bring them back just for the money and probably bust them out again! PBS your the stupidest network i have ever seen! Cancelling the best show ever for you stupid boring old new ones, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!
Kandy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.15.11
I LOVE THIS SHOW D why cancel it, its edcucationally, its better than CyberChase Theyre is real people instead of adults playign as children with 1 big eye and 1 small one ITS ACTUALLY KIDS And i thought they we making season 6 until i found out right now that they cancelled it! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PBS??? Cancel something like Aruther when is reruns CyberChase which is probally to difficult for kids and really boring to me WordGirl which is to much vocabulary or Word World its the same as Wordgirl D If you let the public vote on what show to cancel im guessing its one of the fews things i said Actually, you should let the public vote because we LOVE FETCH WE LOVE THAT YELLOW DOG THAT EATS CHINESE FOOD AND BLOSSOM AND CHET! AND I WANT FETCH SEASON 6! BECAUSE ITS THE ONLY REASON WHY I WATCH PBS KIDS ANYWAY! please bring back the ONLY best show with real kids,real challenges,and realistic fun I hope this changes your mind pbs because you were stupid for cancelling the best show on your channel anyway Fetch with Ruff Ruffman
Jenny commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 06.18.11
Ive grown up watching PBS and even though Im 16 now I can say that Fetch is the best PBS show I have ever seen. Im not ashamed to say that I still watch it with my siblings. I want to tell you about my brother Jesse who is a Fetch fan. He has Down Syndrom and Autism so getting him to like a TV show can be tricky. It has to have action and sillyness in it and Fetch certainly has those elments, but it is also educational! Its hard enough for my brother to have to thrive in a world full of normal people, so its just really nice when something like Fetch comes along that he likes and will sit and watch. He cant fully understand why you are saying that you cant make more Fetch, so I incourage you to find a way to push through with funds. Cancell some other shows that have been aired much longer than Fetch, like Aurther or Cyber Chase. You could even cancell Wild Kratts or World Girl, but why cancell Fetch? Its still a relativly new show, and its one of the few that is REAL.Kids learn better when things are real and when they see other kids doing stuff that they can do themselves. So Im asking you if for no other reason then do it for my brother Jesse. If you dont make new seasons of Fetch, you are robbing him and others like him of clean, exciting, educational TV. Please reconsider stopping with season 5. It is in your power to let Ruff Ruffman live on! Thanks Please consider what I have said seriously and please pass this on the the creators of Fetch and the people who put it on the air. Thank you very much for letting Fetch live on!
David commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 06.13.11
Fetch is one of the best shows for children on television. My kidsnow ages 6, 6, and 9 have been watching it for 3 years and are heartbroken that its been canceled. I am too. I recognize that funding challenges are affecting all of your programming, but this is the wrong show to cut. Please reconsider! And thanks to WGBH for bringing great programs like Fetch into our homes.
Feridoon commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 06.13.11
WGBH, I ask you to reconsider cancelling this show. My daughters, 4 and 6, just discovered Fetch and love it. I am not sure what has captured their interest in it, but I believe it is seeing other kids like themselves doing amazing things. Its a total confidence builder! They even pick out their favorite kids "to be" during the show. Emulating good role models! What more can you ask for in a show? Please dont cancel! I registered with this site just so I could post! I also added my name to the 1500 signatures at petition online http//www.petitiononline.com/fetchpbs/petition.html
Patrick commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 06.01.11
You must make the sixth season of Fetch! Pretty please with egg rolls on top! Ill audition to be a fetcher!!!!!! My name is Patrick. Im ten years old. My favorite sport is archery, and dont worry. I live close to Boston. Fetch is my favorite show, and its even better than Jeopardy! So please may I be the the first season six fetcher?
Stacey commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 05.30.11
hi i am lauren i am 8 and i love fetch so much! i wish i could be a fetcher one day. and if i could i would spend all my tooth fairy money on this! i tink its the best game show ever! i dont know what i would do with out fetch i would not find a game show that is better! everyone loves it even my little brother,my mom,and even my best firend! ruff i hope you blossom,and chet are doing all right because i would love to be on your show. also i wish you good luck! Xo!
Ryan commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 05.23.11
Cant you sell Fetch! DVDs? I would love to buy one!or 5 Also, I heard that Jim Conroy posted he is starting to think about a Season 6. Is this true?
Gary commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 05.18.11
Dear WGBH, I wanted to say I was sorry toi hear about the cancellation of Fetch! It is my 8yearold daughters favorite show. She watches it every day as well as on demand. We originally started watching it when we lived in Oregon, and when we moved to Massachusetts in 2009, my daughter was pleased to see us visiting places local to Boston that the Fetchers had also visited. She always said that when she was old enough she wanted to be a Fetcher on the show. Sadly it seems that the show was cancelled before her time. We will still watch it as long as it is broadcast and on demand. If there is anything we can do to support the show and help get it back on the air, please let us know!!!
Joe commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 05.03.11
Dear WGBH, Obviously, you are hearing a lot of folks voice their dismay over the cancellation of Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman. Blogs, Facebook pages and more have been created to save Fetch. Two simply questions, are the creators and staff of Fetch willing to continue to work on the series? If so, how much money do you need to revive the show and keep it going on an annual basis?
Bernadette commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 04.29.11
Please do not cancel Fetch!with Ruff Ruffman! My daughter loves it and has gotten me hooked on it too. Surely there is some way to bring it back. PBS has the excellent combination of educational programs that are also fun. We actually rush home to make sure we dont miss an episode. I would contribute to a fund to bring it back on the air and I am sure that I am not alone in this sentiment.So please rethink the decision and consider the audience before the bottom line.Other shows have been resurrected so I know that it can be done if the powers that be fight for it.
Catherine commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 04.27.11
Please do not cancel Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman! We live in Ontario and my daughters LOVE your show! Please have Season 6 and enable Canadians to watch videos on your site. Thank you.
Leila commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 04.03.11
Dear Fetch! crew, my name is Leila, and I am going CRAZY for Fetch! With ruffruffman. Why are you canceling it? Im dyeing to know! When I was in Hawaii, my dad, Robert, said that since I love Fetch!, I should email you, telling you that you should host it in San Francisco, because as long as I can remember, Ive been dyeing to be on the show. I am 9 years old, love science and technology,love to read and write, have a dog and 2 cats, Sunny, Sam, and Perry.
Jeannie commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 03.31.11
Please do not cancel Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman. Our 10yr old son will be CRUSHED as he has grown up watching Fetch! since seasonone. We are strict parents who do not watch anything unless its PBS. We always refer to your show to support our school science and history projects. Our sons common response is "I learned that from Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman!". We live in Salt Lake City and found out your intentions to xxl when looking up how to audition for your show. Please keep this valuable program alive!
Catherine commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 03.13.11
Please try to find funding for more Fetch! It is the most educational show on television for upper elementary kids. The show is watched everyday as a family in our home and we transfer and use what we learn into everyday life. When someone asked my daughter recently "How did you get so smart?", her reply was "I watch Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman!" Please work to keep this show. It is so depressing to think something so valuable is gone!
Jennifer commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 03.04.11
I signed up just so I could comment. My family and I have been waiting and waiting for PBS to update with the last epi. When I went on a search as to WHY it had not been updated, ended up reading Wiki groan and the Winner was posted there. Ok No big deal, but what shocked me was the idea of it being canceled. I will admit I am 36 years old and I enjoy it. I LAUGH with my boys. As homeschoolers, many topics have been a jumping point to what they will learn.
l commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 02.26.11
Please keep Fetch on the air! My four kids have been huge fans for years, and it is a wonderful program for learning about science, investigation and resourcefulness. I would also contribute to saving the show. Certainly there are options to save the show if you reach out to the parent community. I urge you to reconsider. In this age of social media it would not be particularly complicated to mount a viewer campaign to raise funds.
kd commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 02.18.11
My son cannot believe that Fetch is going to be cancelled. Please please do not cancel Ruff. We are going to click on the petition to Congress to not stop funding PBS and NPR! The only bright spots on kids tv are the PBS shows...everything else is at best junky and at worst violent!
LAURA commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 02.15.11
Weve been waiting and waiting for the new season and just now found out its cancelled?????? My son will be SO devastated! Surely theres some way to raise enough money to get it going again! This is a wonderful show and my son learned so much from it. I enjoyed watching it too! Id contribute to a fund to save the show. Update us on what is going on! Im sure TONS of parents would rally around to help save the show! I just think that a lot of us didnt know about it even being considered for cancellation!
Karla commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 02.07.11
Kerry, my son is also 11 and has loved this show from the beginning. He is just as upset as your daughter. I would like to make a plea to the bigwigs at PBS..."Really, what can we do to try to get Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman back in production?" I bet there are a lot of generous corporations out there who can see the educational and entertaining benefits of this show...just as thousands of children and parents have.
Kerry commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.31.11
Our 11 year old daughter broke down and cried the other night when she heard season 5 is to be the last season of Fetch! She is now trying to figure out ways to raise money to keep Fetch on the air. PLEASE let people know who to call, who to contact, to try to keep this great show going.
Jen commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.26.11
PLEASE reconsider taking Fetch out of production. This is my familys favorite show. It is both educational and humorous a great combination!! My children often refer to topics presented in Fetch as schema for related learning opportunities. We are all so upset!
Jessica commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.25.11
Please, tell me this isnt true. My son has watched Fetch! from the very first episode. He always talks about becoming a Fetcher. Please bring this show back! This show teaches independence, adventure, team work and good sportsmanship. These are the qualities that are truly important, please reconsider.
L commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.25.11
My 5yearold Georgia boy talks about being a Fetcher nearly every day! I have told him he is too young. It would break his heart if he learned the show was to be cancelled.
Nancy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.24.11
I cant believe that yet another good kids show is being cancelled. There are so few kids shows left that are educational and fun. Please reconsider and bring Fetch back for season 6! My son is 9 and loves it! Our family watches it together. This is a show that has gotten better season after season. Why cancel a quality show???? Please bring Fetch back!!!!!!!
Jenn commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.21.11
We too are very disappointed that Fetch is being taken off the air. Why are all the good shows canceled? I have four kids and they all love Fetch! My 8 and 6 year old are always asking me how to get on the show. Just a very sad circumstance!! We too would help with funding, though Im sure it would take a rather large endowment to keep it going.
Lisa commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.08.11
PLEASE BRING BACK FETCH....PLEASE....WE BEG YOU....WE WILL GIVE MONEY....My 6, 4, and yes 9 months old and mommydaddy love and miss Fetch. This is a wonderful show that is appropriate for all ages. My 6 year old daughter used the word refraction today appropriately. What can the people do to keep this show on the air?????????????
Lauren commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 01.03.11
I love the show Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman! I am mournful to know that you are taking it off the air. Why are you? This show has really helped me with science class! It is one of my favorite shows to watch! Please respond!
R commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 12.31.10
Guys, really? Even This American Life disturbs their podcasters with cries for cash every couple of weeks. How much were you short? You sure you couldnt take a collection? What sort of grant fell through? The kids, having just watched some wacky cartoon version of Kratts Kreatures, are especially heartbroken to hear Fetch! isnt planning on coming back.
Billy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 12.22.10
PLEASE KEEP FETCH ON THE AIR! I am just a child and me and my brother will be disapointed if Fetch goes off the air. Also we learn a lot of stuff, and we are always excited when it comes on. My favorite season is the 5th season, but I do like season 14. Please keep Fetch on the air. If you dont you will disappoint a lot of childen. Thank You
Don commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.22.10
Please bring back Ruff! My daughter was heartbroken when we watched the last episode. Its such a good, entertaining, educational show.
Samantha commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.16.10
I am 14 years old, and I still watch the show. A few months ago, my family and I went to Boston. And about a month later when season 5 started, It was very cool to watch the fetchers do and go places we went. Like the Duck Boats. I love Chet. He is my favorite part of the show. You gotta love a mouse with no eyes.
Joe commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.12.10
I love Fetch,and I would love to be on Fetch for the next season. When is the next opening? sincerly Niamh,Neve
Natalie commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.11.10

My 6 year old LOVES this show!!! Please dont let it go off the air!!!

Dear Ruff, My name is Olivia and I love your show and can I be on Fetch.
Joe commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.01.10
Dear President Obama, With the large amounts of stimulus money being spent these days can you please find some money to save one of the most education shows on television for children? Fetch is a wonderful show that makes kids excited about leaning science. I can’t think of a better use of education funding that is guaranteed to provide positive results. Perhaps you can get the secretary of education or the head of the national science foundation can get involved and saved our beloved show.
Daniel commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 10.05.10
Fetch is such a fun and wonderful program. My kids have chosen Fetch as they only TV show they can watch after school every day. They have been planning for the day that one of them will be on the program for 4 years now. How can we save the show? PLEASE do not cancel Fetch, w/Ruff Ruffman!!!!!!

NOOOOOO!!! Please, please, please, please, dont cancel this show!! My 7yearold twins just discovered Ruff this summer and they are absolutely devoted to this show, even throwing aside SpongeBob and iCarly, their previous favorites. You dont know what this means to them and uswe are delighted that theyve found such a wonderful, educational show and theyre glued to the show and play them over and over. Weve even started doing family challenges modeled after the ones in the show. PLEASE DONT CANCEL NOW!!!

There are currently petitions going on to get the show back. here is the main petition http//www.petitiononline.com/fetchpbs/petition.html and join others on facebook and sign the one on youtube
L commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 08.05.10
How do we get Fetch back on the air? Why is it being canceled? What a shame that a quality, entertaining, educational program be swept under the rug. THe kids learn so much from the show, and aspire to be "fetchers" one day. As an educator and parent, I am sad to see a great show leave the air....there are not enough shows like "Fetch" out there.....a lot of the shows on other channels are filled with junk. Come back Ruff!
Matt commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.24.10
Please do not cancel Fetch!!! You dont understand how much my five year old son loves the show. He literally runs around the house with glee when it comes on, and not only does he learn a lot from the show, he looks up to the contestants as kind of role models. It is a wonderful show, thanks for the great work youve done so far, and please find a way to keep it going! Best, Matt Mackowski, McSherrystown, PA.
amy commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.17.10
I have seen some posts that indicate that this show has been canceled. Is that really true? My daughter LOVES this show and would be very upset if it is true. I think its a great show for her to watch as it has sparked a love of science and nature in her. We will be very sad to see such great programming for kids go away.
jennifer commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 07.17.10
I am so disappointed to hear that this great show is being canceled. My daughter loves this show and wanted to audition for it when she got old enough she is 7 now. Hope the powers that be reconsider.
John commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 06.16.10
My son, who is 7, has been watching Fetch since season 2, and frankly, I think he learns more from FETCH than from school! I was disheartened to learn today that Season 6 has been canceled, despite the fact that casting auditions had already taken place its truly a wonderful show, and hope it comes back some day. At least we have Season 5 coming! Dont know how Ill break the cancellation to my son!
Julie commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 11.03.09
My kids love Fetch! We are actually planning their Birthday Party for this coming weekend with a Fetch Theme... (There are no "Fetch" party products out available, but we are using our imagination). The show is fabulous and has really sparked thier increased interest in science. We sometimes attend the Fetch labs at the Schenectady Museum as well. As a homeschooling parent, I appreciate the resources available to coincide with the programs as well. Great job! (And yes, my son, turning 7 tomorrow, really would like you to lower the age, so he can try out!)
Steve commented on Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman on 09.24.09
My sons love your show. Thank you so much for producing such a clever program. My 8year old is interested in trying out for the program some day. We live in the middle of the country, so it may be impossible, but just knowing how kids audition for the show would be fun. Thank you, Steve Ward Vermillion, SD
