Trivia

Virtually all the voices on the show were supplied by Daws Butler and Don Messick. This is because at the time voice actors were paid by the recording session, regardless of how many voices they did during the session. This is also why female characters hardly ever featured on the show. See more »

Early Hanna-Barbera from the golden age of Saturday Morning TV
10 April 2002 | by raysondSee all my reviews

The "Ruff & Reddy Show" was not only an example of Hanna-Barbera's earlier works,but it is a classic in the utmost sense of the word. I remember catching the show a couple of years ago on the CBN Network,but also most recently on Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel. I never got to see some of the black and white episodes that Hanna-Barbera produced,but the episodes that I saw were in living color and it featured some of the most compelling episodes ever devised and it was always keeping its viewers on a cliffhanger until the next episode(case in point with the same formula that would be seen during "Rocky and Bullwinkle"(1959) years later.). Dilbolical villians,and evil doers at every turn and out to destroy the world,and to leave our heroes Ruff and Ready to save the day! Worth seeing.

THEME SONG: They're Ruff and Reddy Always Ruff and Reddy They're tough and steady Always Ruff and Reddy

They sometimes fight like dogs and cats Even though when to comes to that but when they need each other that's when They're Ruff and Reddy
