Buddy’s Trolley Troubles Review
Buddy’s Trolley Troubles is a 1934 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a weak Buddy offering.
The railway setting is overused by now within Looney Tunes and here we do not get to see anything new. Even the characters are forgettable as the villain is typical and Buddy and Cookie aren’t memorable at all. The entire first half is so uneventful, dull and familiar.
But the second half is definitely much better as it features pretty solid action. I liked the trolley chase quite a bit and I especially loved how Buddy defeated the villain and saved Cookie. Those action scenes were surprisingly well thought out and executed and I wish the whole entry was like that. The ending itself is also solid, though I do not see the point of the arriving pigs at all.
Buddy’s Trolley Troubles is familiar in setting and weak in first half, but pretty solid in second half with a couple of memorable action sequences.
