Circus time with Buddy
8 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 Buddy's filmography is a mixed bag (the best cartoons tend to be decent but not great and the worst mediocre) and he tends to not be the most interesting or compelling of characters (while there are cartoons that see a heroic side to him, he tends to be quite bland), 'Buddy's Circus' is one of his decent efforts. It is not a great cartoon and there are better circus-themed cartoons around.

'Buddy's Circus' does have a good deal to like. The animation is nicely drawn and detailed. Music played a big part in the Buddy cartoons and it was essential for it to work. Luckily it has the liveliness and energy, as well as the lush and vibrant orchestration.

The supporting characters are quite fun, while there are amusing moments, there is more energy than seen previously and the gags are generally well timed. The voice acting is good.

However, Buddy is still a bit bland. 'Buddy's Circus' is amusing but never hilarious, with too many of the gags feeling derivative that outcomes are easy to predict.

As always, the story is mostly thin to the extent that one would be forgiven for thinking it to be plot-less. The second half does inject a bit of plot and it's done well. The first half could have had more excitement.

In summation, decent. 6/10 Bethany Cox
