FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman

Tuesday, October 5th marks the start of season 5 of the greatest PBS kids' program of the 21st Century (sorry, WordGirl), Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman. Fetch is a combination reality show / game show out of Boston. The star is Ruff Ruffman, a cartoon dog. He assigns his (live, human) preteen contestants various challenges like building an environmentally "green" doghouse and making music with the Blue Man Group. In other words, the kids have to "Go, fetch!"

Ruff is your typical t.v. host, prone to vanity and mistakes. He's assisted by his interns, Blossom the cat (full name Princess Blossom Pepperdoodle Von Yum Yum) and Chet, the mouse (who can usually be trusted to ignore instructions if any cheese shows up). Ruff is occasionally hindered by his evil twin brother Scruff Ruffman or his rival for the affections of Charlene the poodle, Spot Spotnik. The "Fetchers" are all smart young people who are game for anything, and there are lots of amusing references for any adults who are watching (when the Fetchers built a bowling machine, Ruff dubbed it "The Bowlinator"). And then there's Ruff's cousin, Glen, who prefers to be called "Glendalf," and who once sent the Fetchers on a full-scale Live Action Role-Playing Adventure.

Great show. Funny characters. Neat challenges.
