Ruff And Ready

Good news for fans of Ruff Ruffman – the star of the fan-favorite PBS Kids series will be returning this fall in The Ruff Ruffman Show, an all-new short-form animated digital series.

Along with his assistants Blossom and Chet, the canine host extraordinaire will answer questions from real kids, take on challenges and learn the value of perseverance – all while modeling science inquiry skills.

The 20-episode series is designed to help kids ages 4-8 learn core science concepts through videos, game-play and hands-on activities and will be available on PBS Kids digital platforms on September 20.

Hey, It’s Photo Friday!

Since the Kratt brothers were in town recently for their Wild Kratts Live tour, I thought I’d present a little memento of Kratts past. To wit: this very cool activity book designed to promote Kratts’ Creatures – the first of PBS’ association with the fearless frères (Zoboomafoo & Wild Kratts being the two others).

I probably picked it up somewhere at a PBS convention or it was given to me by someone who attended one but it’s a very cool memento of kids programming from the 1990s. The booklet is designed to help stations and promotional personnel reach out to viewers, schools and the like with activities along the line of games and fun facts.

Check out some of the action…
