Real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal animated host!

This fall, FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman premieres its fourth season with a fully animated special and 20 brand-new episodes on PBS KIDS GO!. The animated special features none other than the indomitable Ruff Ruffman, who starts the season with a pretty serious challenge of his own – getting his job back! Yes, you read right: the end of Season 3 found Ruff getting the pink slip from the TV station’s new owner, Harriet Hackensack, an Australian media mogul and (brace yourself) hater of dogs!
Lucky for FETCH! fans, Ruff’s a dog who refuses to take injustice lying down (though a nap is nice every now and then...), so he embarks on an epic journey – in a cooking oil-powered aquatic doghouse shaped like a chicken – to get his job back! Along the way he enlists the help of his family and friends, including Uncle MacRuffmantosh, his brother Scruff, Grandma Ruffman, the dread ghost pirate Black Muzzle, nephew Glen, and, of course, his trusty Studio G sidekicks, Blossom Pepperdoodle von Yum Yum and Chet. What ensues is a gut-bustingly funny animated rollercoaster ride charting Ruff’s agonies and triumphs as he seeks re-employment.
