Ruff-Ruff, Tweet and Dave

Ruff-Ruff, Tweet & Dave – our first CGI animated show for pre-schoolder – bringing character to multiple choice!

Ruff-Ruff is an active excitable puppy, Tweet is cute and fluffy yellow bird who loves to sing and Dave is a quirky, inventive blue panda, full of quirky, ‘Blue Panda ideas’.

Together, with Hatty the Hamster and his magical ‘hat full of questions’, they fly off on fun-filled adventures in Hatty’s Spingain spinning top, to fantastical lands, to help their friends, play games and make exciting discoveries!

Ruff-Ruff, Tweet & Dave is a show about choices. For as well as being our lead characters, Ruff-Ruff, Tweet and Dave are also the three possible answers to a series of multiple choice games and questions set by Hatty the Hamster. No matter what the question is, the answer our viewers at home are called upon to shout out, is always either, Ruff-Ruff, Tweet or Dave, as each character champions a different answer for the audience at home to choose. This simple device of using our characters’ names as answers to different types of questions is key to the show’s appeal to pre-schoolers – allowing them to interact with the characters and answer complex problems without having to verbalise complex answers!

Who will you choose – Ruff-Ruff, Tweet or Dave?

Ruff-Ruff, Tweet & Dave is a co-production between Collingwood & Co, Sprout and Sparky Animation in association with Bejuba! Entertainment. The series was pre-sold to CBeebies in the U.K. and TVO in Canada.
