Film / Air Buddies

Air Buddies is a series of direct-to-DVD movies produced by Walt Disney Pictures. The series is a spin-off series to Disney’s Air Bud movie series.

The movies are about Air Bud’s five puppies: Budderball, B-Dawg, Buddha, Mudbud and Rosebud, who all go out together on a crazy adventure. Unlike the original Air Bud series, however, in this movie series, the animals talk.

As of today, these are the following films in the Air Buddies franchise:

These movies provide examples of these tropes:

  • The Ace: Pretty much every guest dog in each movie.
  • Christmas Episode: Santa Buddies.
  • Cool Old Guy: Deputy Sniffer.
    • Also Bartelby's grandpa in Super Buddies.
  • Covers Always Lie: On the Air Buddies posters, B-Dawg is seen wearing sunglasses. However, he does not wear them at all in the movies.
  • Cute Bruiser: Rosebud.
  • Demoted to Extra: Buddy, the star of Air Bud, was demoted to a smaller role in these movies. While he and Molly did have good-sized roles in Air Buddies and Snow Buddies, they are more AWOL in the other films.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: Unlike Stan Cruge, Ms. Stout is given no Freudian Excuse for why she hates Christmas. She just does.
