The Ralph and Rupert series is a series of brickfilms created by and starring Dave Wardell. The series follows Ralph McCormick and Rupert Buckingham who share a house and get into various shenanigans, often as a result of Ralph's stupidity.
The series ran from 2004 to 2005, with the final released film, No News is Good News, promising a continuation that was never produced. Prior to No News is Good News' release, Wardell had also begun scripting a film titled Candyman! The Ralph and Rupert Musical. Upon returning to brickfilming in 2007, Wardell attempted to produce a Ralph and Rupert Christmas special but was stopped by technical difficulties that prevented his camera from working.
