Buddy's very entertaining adventures
12 September 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Now a fairly obscure character, Buddy was the second Warner Brothers Looney Tunes character, after Bosko and followed by Beans the Cat. Buddy didn't last long, being retired in 1935 after 23 cartoons starting in 1933.

Although not a mind-blowing cartoon, 'Buddy's Adventures' is by quite some way one of the best of a very mixed bag, which tend to range between mediocre (i.e. 'Buddy's Show Boat' and 'Buddy's Bearcats') and decent (i.e. 'Buddy the Gob), with a lot of average ones. 'Buddy's Adventures' is one of the rare very good Buddy cartoons. While the story is still quite slight and quite predictable in its lack of originality, there is actually more story to usual.

There is also more energy than can be typically be found, and Buddy, generally an uninteresting and bland character, shows more personality and charisma and at his least bland compared to the previous cartoons of his.

Once again, The animation is nicely drawn and detailed with the black and white looking crisp, also some of the most imaginative of the Buddy cartoons. Even better is the music score. Music played a big part in the Buddy cartoons and it was essential for it to work, the one in 'Buddy's Adventures' is one of the best ones and synchronises so well with the imaginative visuals.

Gags are beautifully timed and much funnier than any of the gags of the previous Buddy cartoons. Cookie is charming and the voice acting is good from particularly Billy Bletcher.

In conclusion, very entertaining and one of Buddy's best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
