The Charge

Rolling with baschnuzzies.

The Case

Max and Ruby are rabbit siblings. Ruby is the eldest, an imaginative rabbit girl who goes on loads of rabbit girl adventures. Max is her little rabbit brother and his dialogue is largely limited to monosyllabic utterances. He's a young bunny and very impressionable. It's a good thing Ruby isn't a depraved older sister. He'd do whatever twisted thing she came up with. But no. She's wicked nice. And the two love each other, the way that only rabbit siblings can.

Four episodes on disc, featuring three shorts per installment:

Episode 1
"Grandma's Treasure Hunt"
"Ruby's Jigsaw Puzzle"
"Ruby's Recital"

Episode 2
"Ruby's Rainbow"
"Home Tweet Home"
"Max's Mudpie"

Episode 3
"Ruby's Home Run"
"Ruby's Missing Tune"
"Ruby's Hand Stand"

Episode 4
"Ruby's Good Neighbor Report"
"Candy Counting"
"Ruby's New Shoes"

This is a sweet show, low-key and entirely inoffensive. Kids raised on more hyperactive fare might be thoroughly bored, but if you're a parent looking to just slow it down a bit and plant your offspring in front of a positive, easygoing show, you can do whole lot worse than Max and Ruby.

Standard-issue DVD: full frame, 2.0 stereo, no extras.

The Verdict

Not Guilty.
