Buddy’s Day Out Review
Buddy’s Day Out is a 1933 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a pretty good introductory entry for this character.
We follow Buddy with his girlfriend Cookie, their baby and dog as they go out on a picnic. The problem with this film is that the gags are there, but they aren’t that memorable of even emphasized. And of course the plot and the setting are both been there, done that. It is engaging to watch and even charming, but too ordinary to be remembered more.
I liked Buddy here, he was wall introduced and I hope I’ll see him in much better roles from now on as he is likable here, but forgettable. His girlfriend has an interesting look and the baby is amusing. They look like a pretty representative couple for the 1930s and are actually quite memorable as a group, if not individually. The score is solid, but the animation is extraordinary and probably the best in the series so far. Not only are the designs very good, but the film is so polished and so well drawn with such wonderful and charming imagery.
Buddy’s Day Out is typical in plot, but it is so well animated and serves as a solid introduction to Buddy’s character.
