Just found videos of the Fetch with Ruff Ruffman season I worked on Youtube. I worked on season 4 field production, studio, props, and finale set dressing.
In this video the last two contestants are facing off. Their final face-off challenge is the electromagnetic spectrum stacking challenge. I love seen games/props that I made translated into the cartoon portion of the show. I was also in charge of cheesing up Studio G. Too. Much. Fun.
UPDATE: Looks like the video was pulled when episodes where made available to purchase on demand. You can now get purchase the episode or season pass:
The Parents’ Choice Award website offers this sound advice:
We all agree that watching too much tv can sprout couch potatoes. But watching age appropriate programs, can germinate learning – about friendship, fish or financial ABCs. Manage your child’s television viewing with intelligent choices and parental controls. Set family limits for the what, when and where television shows can be watched.
Season 4 of Fetch is now airing on PBS nationally. I worked six of the challenges, created many of the props, and development of the studio set for the finale. Nothing like making goat costumes and giant cheese props to mix things up a little bit! In addition to field production, I worked in the WGBH studio control room during the filming in Ruff’s garage, Studio G.
Part game show, part reality TV, and part spoof, FETCH! features real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal host named Ruff Ruffman (yes, he’s an animated dog!) Featuring 20 half-hour episodes, FETCH! mixes live-action with animation and breaks the mold with its educational and comical take on America’s newest television genre. Targeting six- to ten-year olds, it is spontaneous, unscripted, and full of twists.
