Exclusive Preview: THE RUFF & REDDY SHOW #4 – A Social Commentary On Hollywood

DC Comics released an exclusive preview of THE RUFF & REDDY SHOW #4 to Monkeys Fighting Robots Thursday morning. The series is written by Howard Chaykin with art by Mac Rey, with a variant cover by Chaykin as well.

The Show was an American animated television series made by Hanna-Barbera Productions. The show followed the adventures of Ruff, a smart and steadfast cat, and Reddy, a good-natured and brave dog. DC Comics has since reenvisioned the series with a modern spin.

Chaykin uses this series to comment on the social issues of Hollywood, ageism, sexism, and the advertising world. To put it mildly, this is not a Saturday morning cartoon anymore. DC Comics has been bold with the Hanna-Barbera properties, which has created a passionate following among fans.


About issue four:
In the rough-and-tumble, dog-eat-dog world of the business of show, betrayal is just another fact of life, but when Ruff and Reddy betray the one person who believed in them, there’ll be hell to pay—and pay again and again and again!
