Tough & Steady ( lyrics from their theme song.)
17 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THIS IS THE first Hanna-Barbera Produced TV cartoon series. It was different than their standard fare that was to come down the pike in the next few years. Rather than being all cartoon with multiple character features, this show featured a single cartoon series, Later syndicated half-hours, such as THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND Show, featured the main star (HUCK)and two back-up features (PIXIE & DIXIE and YOGI BEAR).

FURTHER MARKED DIFFERENCES are apparent in the use of live (or videotaped) performers in studio. The implementation of a puppet side show added an element of contrast to the comedy of the RUFF & REDDY Cartoon adventures.

AND SPEAKING OF those R & R adventures, they had a sort of continuing theme, much like a movie serial, sans the cliff-hanger endings. Theirs were humorous, but strung together by the inclusion of a singular plot line and some protagonists.

IN WHAT WAS most likely an intentional switch in names for comic effect, RUFF & REDDY were polar opposites in their appearances. With Ruff ("ROUGH") being the expected name for the huge bulldog, he was Reddy ("READY") and the small cat partner was really Ruff ("ROUGH"). (Did you get that one, Schultz?)

UNLIKE SO MANY more of their productions, this Hanna-Barbera show was shown on the network of NBC, instead of being sent out via the wonders of syndication.
