RUFF RUFFMAN AND FETCHERS FROM POPULAR PBS KIDS GO! SHOW FETCH! VISIT MYSTIC AQUARIUM ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4

Special screening of FETCH! Go Belugas Go!, filmed at Mystic Aquarium

Mystic Aquarium welcomes Ruff Ruffman and FETCHers Marc and Emmie from the popular PBS Kids Go! show FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman on Saturday, December 4 for a special screening of Go Belugas Go! The Go Belugas Go! episode was filmed at Mystic Aquarium and stars Marc as he works with trainers to learn how beluga whales are adapted for the water.

Meet Marc here and watch his video interview here.

Meet Emmie here and watch her video interview here.

Guests will have the opportunity to meet Ruff Ruffman and the FETCHers, enjoy a special screening of Go Belugas Go! in the Marine Theater, hear about Marc’s experience working with the beluga whales and participate in FETCH! science challenges on the aquarium’s main exhibit floor.

Part game show, part reality TV and part spoof, FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman features real kids, real challenges, real science, and an unreal host named Ruff Ruffman (yes, he’s an animated dog!). FETCH! mixes live-action with animation and breaks the mold with its educational and comical take on America's newest television genre. Targeting six- to ten-year olds, it is spontaneous, unscripted, and full of twists.

Go Belugas Go! airs on CPTV on Tuesday, December 7 and Monday, December 13 at 5:00 p.m. Click here to check your local listings.
