Are the Buddies Ever Gonna be Put to Sleep?

    The closest thing to a sequel Hercules got was a Direct-to-Video "movie" which was basically 3 episodes of the TV series, like Cinderlla II was based on a planned series that thankfuly never existed.

    I just said that.

    Anyway, there are at least 6 of these videos that are 3 episodes of a cartoon series...

    Hercules, Cinderella 2, Tarzan (the first DTV project, the second one was a prequel), I think there was something with Beauty and the Beast (not the Christmas one), Atlantis (which, like Cinderella and B&TB didn't get to be an actual series), and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (but with all of Buzz's lines redubbed by Tim Allen and a fun little Pixar made intro).

    Belle did have one called Belle's Magical World, but it's almost as bad as Cinderella if not worse.

    Not that I care, but are we to assume that this new "Santa Paws" DVD is also part of this Buddies franchise?

    And, honestly, HOW many of those movies are there now? In addition to the original Air Bud sequels that weren't necessary to begin with?

    We can all agree on this. The original Air Bud sequels were basically "look what other sport we can get a dog to play." That was the only reason those were made.

    The Buddies were a lame spinoff to fill the quota of lame talking dog movies featuring the same talking dog cliches that 4 year olds love, and everyone else wishes grievous harm on everyone involved.

    Seriously. ENOUGH with the 15 year old rap slang rappers used only once before out of touch 50 year old white people started using it.

    I gotta admit, when I saw the title, I laughed for at least a minute and a half, and I own two dogs. Found this out today, The "Buddies" series is currently tied with The Land Before Time series for sequels, and there is another Buddies sequel coming in 2013. There you have it, folks! The buddies are going to beat The Land Before Time franchise! Ain't that sad......

    Sadder than a little kid dropping an ice cream cone on the ground.

    This is what happens when you take away the DTV sequels of animated movies. They have to resort to live action ones.

    Incidentally I have been writing an original sequel to the Disney movie Pinocchio that revolves around the Coachman of Pleasure Island getting his long overdue just desserts. I only have the epilogue to go but seriously I wish Disney had already done something like that themselves.

    With all the movies they make like Spooky Buddies I think they should sell them to Warner Brothers and then call them Scooby's kids....that's how farfetched they seem....

    Scooby does NOT need 5 more Scrappies. And frankly, a movie about 5 Scrappy-Doos running around going "Lemme at 'im! Lemme at 'im! P-p-p-p-p-ppuppy Power!" for 90 minutes would be a LOT better than the talking dog stuff Disney keeps crapping out.

    That said... What the Glob!!?! Disney... you OWN Marvel. You don't need some halfbutt talking dog Superhero movie. You already ruined one.

    I'm not saying it's a good idea...I'm just saying that it would make more sense with Scooby then with Air Bud....

    I like talking dog movies. That said the Buddies are something even I'm not interested in seeing. Since the Hub started running them I've had a chance to watch them for free but I just have no interest in seeing them.

    No one likes new characters in Scooby-Doo. Good idea, bad idea, more sense or not. Scrappy did save the franchise in the 70's strangely enough... but when's the last time you heard anyone talk about Scooby-Dumm, Yabba-Doo, Robi the robot, and Flim Flam in a positive light? It needs to stay the core 5.

    Though... eh... I like Scooby-Doo.

    I wouldn't hate talking dog movies if they weren't so obvious. Butt sniffing jokes got tired after the first one. The Buddies are just stock personalities that say stock phrases with nothing original or clever about them. They still have the oh so hip 90's style hip hop speak character 50 year old white guys with ulcers swear kids like unironically.

    I like Scrappy personally, even more so than Fred and Daphne....especially Daphne...*shudders*
