Buddy Steps Out was an early start for animators Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett
8 March 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This being my first viewing of a Buddy cartoon from Leon Schlesinger after losing Harmon-Ising's Bosko to M-G-M, I have to say it's a good thing Tex Avery arrived a year later so animators Bob Clampett and Chuck Jones didn't get stuck with such bland material such as what is done here. While Buddy and Cookie go out, a picture of the main character comes to life and with the statue Atlas' help, brings a frozen bird inside who starts chirping to a tune on the radio with many other characters in the house coming to life. Reminiscent of other Warner Bros. cartoons with similar formats, Buddy Steps Out is hardly any different but knowing that the animators would eventually be two of the most creative staff members of Termite Terrace, this one is certainly worth a look. By the way, director Jack King originally was raided from Disney. When he returned there, he'd be Donald Duck's resident helmer before his retirement in 1947.
