Buddy's Day Out marks the start of a series of cartoons starring a forgotten Warner Bros. character
I just watched on DailyMotion this cartoon short from Leon Schlesinger Productions whose product was distributed by Warner Bros. It marked the first appearance of a character named Buddy. Who? You ask. Well, when Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising left to go to M-G-M, they took Bosko with them. So Schlesinger raided the Walt Disney studio for animators and the character they created to replace Bosko was Buddy who was basically Bosko in whiteface with girlfriend Cookie, pet dog Happy, and little brother Elmer. With that all said, this cartoon has some amusing sight gags like a car going back through a fence and crashing into various animals before landing in Cookie's yard or a train that seems on its way into crashing into a car with Elmer and Happy inside when Buddy and Cookie use a ladder to derail the locomotive in another direction. Otherwise, there is some cringe-worthy spots of some little animals and insects saying, "Woogie, woogie, woogie" or variations thereof that makes the cuteness factor here really annoying. So on that note, I'd recommend Buddy's Day Out only for those really curious of what the Looney Tunes gang had to go through to eventually get to the greatness of Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, etc.
