Part game show, part reality series, part spoof, FETCH! explores the untapped potential of the hugely popular reality television genre and proves it can be a great venue for kids to learn problem-solving skills and teamwork, while at the same time exposing them to different cultures and experiences. Featuring an animated dog, Ruff Ruffman, and a group of real kids, this series will offer young viewers some perspective on competition by reinforcing the age old adage "it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game!
