Prehistoric Buddy
18 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.

The Buddy cartoons are intriguing to see how very early Looney Tunes characters, before the iconic ones with far more interesting and funnier personalities were introduced, fared. His filmography is very much variable, most ranging between mediocre and decent though 'Buddy's Adventures' is one of the rare very good Buddy cartoons. 'Buddy's Lost World' is one of the above average cartoons, better than 'Buddy's Show Boat', 'Buddy's Bearcats' and 'Buddy of the Legion'.

'Buddy's Lost World' does a good deal right. The animation is nicely drawn and detailed with the black and white looking crisp. Even better is the very energetic and cleverly orchestrated music score. Music played a big part in the Buddy cartoons and it was essential for it to work.

Some of the gags are amusing and there is a fair bit of energy without being rushed. The prehistoric setting is fun, Bozo and the rest of the supporting characters are fun and the voice acting is good.

However, the story is thin and formulaic and could have done a little more with the setting. There are amusing moments, but others could have been crisper timed and there's not much exceptional here.

For a lead character, Buddy is part of the problem too, like in all his lesser-just straining average cartoons he just isn't a particularly interesting or compelling in personality character, pretty bland actually, and his comic timing is barely there.

All in all, above average if never great. 6/10 Bethany Cox
