End of the Show Edit
Thursday, November 4, 2010 was a sad day for Fetch! viewers. Season 5 and the series had ended.
"It's just so disappointing," says 12-year-old Laurel James. "I wish they would continue the show."
Well, Laurel, you're not alone. All over the United States, people are mourning Ruff's farewell.
"My children glean so much from watching it," Charlotte, a mom of three, says. "They love taking the Half-Time Quiz Show along with the contestants in Studio G."
Good-bye to Ruff, Scruff, Grandma Ruffman, Blossom, Chet, Gwendal, and not to mention all the energetic, talented, contestants. We'll miss you.
Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman may not seem like much, but it is. It's a huge contribution to the fabric of American life.
