PuffRuff School is an American animated television series created by TjsWorld2011 for the Fox television network. The series follows the lives of middle school students Emily "MJ" Jordan, Kirby Anon, Pyro Rexton, and Andrew Anderson, and takes place at the fictional PuffRuff Middle School in San Francisco, California. Originally conceived as a satire of teen drama television series, it features a wide range of running gags, cultural references, and subplots.
PuffRuff School was the first series produced by TjsWorld2011 Entertainment and Pyro R. Productions (later Imperium Entertainment). The series' character designs are influenced by that of Whoopass Stew! A Sticky Situation, a 1992 short film made by Tj's close friend Craig McCracken. Tj had previously used the style on his first film Operation Blue (1993), and the initial success of that film and PuffRuff School convinced McCracken to eventually pitch his own show, titled The Powerpuff Girls, to Cartoon Network. Having used traditional ink-and-paint animation since Season 1, PuffRuff School switched to digital ink-and-paint starting with Season 5 in 1998.
During its run from October 9, 1994 to April 25, 2004, the series aired a total of 187 episodes over the span of ten seasons, and spawned various spin-off media, including video games, comics, toys, and a feature film. The series has been praised for its humor, dialogue, and writing, and earned two Primetime Emmy Award nominations during its run. Reruns of the series began airing on FX in 2014.
