Viva Buddy provides some amusements of the usually bland leading character
28 February 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another Leon Schlesinger/Looney Tunes cartoon from the '30s that starred perhaps the blandest character that Warner Bros. ever had in their roster: Buddy. Here, he's in, I guess, Mexico playing a Latin American-flavored tune while we encounter many, I'm thinking, stereotypes of the era including a Wallace Beery-inspired Pancho Villa character. Cookie's there too, dancing as a senorita who gets both Pancho's and Buddy's attention. Filled with plenty of violent gags, Viva Buddy moves along briskly and is a little entertaining but it also seems a little rushed and the way it ends is a little bit of a cop-out. Still, I'd recommend this to any Warner cartoon completist out there and you gotta dig the caricatures of The Four Marx Brothers (including one of them actually pronouncing himself as "chee-co" instead of the usual "chick-co"!) in the middle of all this...
