There’s no business like show business. And these two misfits have no business being anywhere near it.
Back in the day, they were the toast of Tinseltown. Ruff, a whip-smart cat, and Reddy, his dimwitted but lovable dog sidekick, had the biggest animated series on TV. Then the show ended, and so did their ride on the gravy train of fame and fortune. Now Reddy washes up in a local grocery store for a living, while Ruff is just…washed up.
But one hard-charging agent with stars (and dollar signs) in her eyes is out to change all that. With her help, Ruff and Reddy are about to mount a full-scale assault on the entertainment industry, determined to get back to the top by any means necessary. Game shows, crime dramas, sitcom pilots, reality TV, even (ugh) the convention circuit: this cat-and-dog act will get their paws on it all.
But when the pressures and temptations of fame lead to breakdowns and betrayals, can this odd couple stay together? Or will their biggest fan become their worst enemy?
Lights, camera, action: it’s The Ruff and Reddy Show, a scathingly hilarious showbiz satire starring the classic Hanna-Barbera comedy team from comics legend Howard Chaykin and artist Mac Rey. Collects the six-issue miniseries.
