Editorial Reviews

Christmas spirit is waning around the globe, and people are losing sight of the real meaning of Christmas. Up at the North Pole, Santa and his trusty dog Santa Paws are alarmed because the Christmas icicle, which is the source of Christmas magic, is melting. Even scarier is the fact that only Santa Paws's young pup Puppy Paws can spread the word about the importance of Christmas spirit to the new generation, but all he wants to do is be a normal dog. After looking at the naughty list, Puppy Paws hitches a ride to Fernfield, Washington, to catch up with Budderball and participate in what he perceives to be a more normal life. Budderball, B-Dawg, Rosebud, Mudbud, and Buddha all take a turn hosting Puppy Paws, but he doesn't seem to quite fit in with any one of them. While in Fernfield, Puppy Paws is shocked by the widespread disbelief in Santa Claus and Santa Paws as well as by the general lack of holiday spirit. He also gets a rude surprise when dogcatcher Stan Cruge grabs him and locks him behind bars in the local pound. It takes all of the Buddies working together with a special dog named Tiny and an elf-dog from the North Pole to save Puppy Paws and reignite the town's Christmas spirit, but will it be enough to save Christmas around the world?

Santa Buddies features some nice songs and a good message, but the fully animated segments (especially those with the reindeer) are poorly rendered and give the production a low-budget, even amateurish feel. The film focuses more on the new Puppy Paws character than on the old Buddies gang, but brief scenes of Budderball gorging himself, Mudbud tracking dirt all over the house, B-Dawg dancing, Rosebud preening, and Buddha meditating are all viewers really need in this fourth Buddies film. While Santa Buddies may not be the most stimulating adult fare, children ages 3 to 10 will enjoy it while absorbing a sense that Christmas is about giving, not getting, and that one person can change the lives of many. Voice talent includes George Wendt, Christopher Lloyd, Josh Flitter, Zachary Gordon, and Kaitlyn Maher. Bonus features include three classic Christmas sing-along songs and Steve Rushton's music video "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." --Tami Horiuchi

When Puppy Paws, the fun-loving son of Santa Paws, gets tired of the North Pole, he finds Budderball on Santa s naughty list and figures he s just the dog to show him how to be an ordinary pup.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Miracle February 21, 2011
I have always been a huge fan of the Buddies movie. More than the original Air Bud series. This one though is so far my top fav. It really explains the true meaning of Christmas. Plus the cuteness between Puppy Paws and the buddies is great humor. The cute stray puppy Tiny in the pound also sings a short beautiful song "A Christmas Miracle" and it brings tears to your eyes. Highly worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars My son loves these buddie movies October 3, 2009
This is mainly in response to the previous reviewer complaining about this movie. This movie is obviously not for you because your an adult and you probably don't have children. Because if you did, you would see that kids love these movies, my son watches them all the time(he's 4). The target audience is obviously children, not some grumpy old man with internet access and extreme distaste for Golden Retrievers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kid pleaser, adult nightmare April 18, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This cute-looking little movie is one of those bittersweet selections for a family movie night. My daughter loved the movie, her dad and myself were bored to tears. My daughter is four and loves animals. Anything with talking animals in it pleases her, but the actual movie itself was horrible. Story line, plot, characters, everything about it was so cheesy and lame. But chances are, if you have small children, they will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Buddies set! wish there were more sets! March 30, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My little girl and I are HUGE Buddies FANS and have all the movies! The only disappointment is the lack of toys available from the movies! When I finally found thhis set I was thrilled and although we already own the movie (and have watched it 100's of times) it was worth it to see the thrill on my little girls face!Every night in her prayers she would pray to meet the Buddies and we would wish on a star five individual times - wishing to meet each Buddy! I hope and pray they come out with more Buddy sets! The only problem was B-Dawgs necklace broke and was a bit flimsy although (once we find all the pieces I will try to fix it), Budda's necklace was fine. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE COME OUT WITH MORE BUDDIES SETS! PREFERABLY AT LEAST ONE SET PER MOVIE!!!!! THE BUDDIES HAVE A HUGE FAN BASE AND WE LOVE THEM DEARLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a Christmas movie I will watch all year long. Those "Buddies" are so cute. The voices match each one's personality perfectly.
