> Description 
The Ruff & Reddy Show was a Hanna-Barbera animated series starring Ruff, a cat voiced by Don Messick, and Reddy, a dog voiced by Daws Butler.

Ruff & Reddy was the first show made for television by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the duo fresh from their production of theatrical cartoons for MGM. The show, unlike its successor The Huckleberry Hound Show, featured a live action host and various theatrical cartoons filling up the rest of the half-hour.

Messick's "Ruff" voice characterization was very similar to the one he would later use for Pixie the mouse. Butler used his tried-and-true southern drawl for "Reddy", a voice that would later become mainly identified with Huckleberry Hound.

A supporting character in some episodes was the tiny-sized Professor Gizmo (also voiced by Don Messick).

Ruff and Reddy borrowed from the serialized storytelling format of such shows as Crusader Rabbit by making extensive use of cliffhanger storylines.
