Watch Max and Ruby

Max and Ruby is an animated television show based on the Max and Ruby books by American children's author Rosemary Wells. Although the original shows were based closely on the earlier written books the television shows have outnumbered the number of books and are now written in the style of Wells stories. Written for preschool children, the Max and Ruby stories try to impress on children what can be achieved by working together.

Max is a five year old rabbit who rarely speaks apart from single or two word sentences; Ruby is Max's sister and is seven years old. Each 24 minute episode of Max and Ruby consists of three short stories based on the lives of Max and Ruby. In most episodes Ruby misunderstands what Max is trying to tell her as she is too busy with a project or activity to stop and listen to her brother; by the end of each story Ruby accidentally works out what Max is telling her and includes her brother in the activity.

Beginning in 2002, max and Ruby was originally voiced by Academy Award nominee actress Samantha Morton, the English actress voiced Ruby for the first two seasons with Max voiced by Billy Rosemburg. The show is a coproduction between Canadian and American animation companies Chorlon and 9 Story Entertainment, the first two seasons were produced by Chorlon and Nelvana. Broadcast in North America by Treehouse TV and Nickelodeon Max and Ruby is broadcast around the world with voices dubbed by local actors. The show is broadcast in countries including Bulgarian, Czech and Pakistan.
