TriviaEdit

  • Like The Tortoise and the Hare and Harry and the Haunted House, this is another Living Books game that was not based on other people's books, and the first one to be an entirely original story (as mentioned above). But, the art style was sloppier and wasn't really the same as these other two games because it was actually created by Eli Noyes, who produced the 1964 short film Clay. This game was also produced by Colossal Pictures.
  • This game uses an entirely custom credits sequence and not the usual jazz one just like Green Eggs and Ham, Arthur's Computer Adventure, and D.W. the Picky Eater.
  • A preview for this game is featured on V1.1 of Just Grandma and Me and Arthur's Teacher Trouble, and both versions of The Tortoise and the Hare and The New Kid on the Block.
  • The running gag in this game is Ruff's actual bone, though it's not hiding on every page and is entirely absent on the ninth page where Ruff is climbing up the ladder.
  • Ruff only speaks by barking, even onto the title home-page; instead of him speaking English, an off-screen character says it.
  • This game along with Harry and the Haunted House was being featured in Brutal-moose's review of the Living Books series.
