Product Description

Disney's irresistible talking puppies are back in an all-new movie that takes them far across town to a mysterious mansion where something very spooky is going on. With the help of some unexpected new friends including a friendly ghost this exciting adventure is howling-good Buddy fun.
In a race against a no good hound, the Buddies and their new friends, Pip, Zelda, Rodney, and Skip, must stop Warwick the Warlock and save the world from his dastardly deeds.
Overflowing with action, humor, and a bag full of bonus features, Spooky Buddies is a Spooktacular adventure that treats you to a celebration of friendship and teamwork your whole family will enjoy.

The Buddies puppies are back for another adventure, and this time the talking bundles of golden fur find themselves right in the middle of a Halloween scare that started way back in 1937. Fernfield legend tells of an evil warlock, Warwick, who entered into a pact with the menacing Halloween Hound to open a portal between realities and allow the spirits of the netherworld to escape and take over the world. Time ran out before the Halloween Hound could steal the souls of five dogs of the same blood in order to open the portal. But conditions are just right in the present for Warwick the Warlock and the Halloween Hound to return and complete their mission. The Buddies stumble into the middle of Warwick's plan and suddenly find themselves the town's only hope, along with a puppy ghost from the past named Pip, their new clairvoyant friend Zelda, and a young boy grown old. Young audiences find these cute talking puppies quite appealing, but the whole premise of ghosts and dark spirits from the underworld is potentially quite frightening to some. Additionally, some viewers may be surprised by the film's portrayal of the church as a safe sanctuary from dark spirits and the Bible as a powerful weapon to be brandished in the face of evil. While this fifth Buddies movie is just as cute as and no less believable than the previous films, the writers have chosen to treat the puppies more as one cohesive group rather than as individuals with distinct personalities, and the plot is certainly much scarier than in earlier films. What hasn't changed is the message that teamwork and confidence triumphs over evil. Bonus features include a tour of Rosebud's house, a "Monster Mash" music video featuring the cast of Shake It Up, and a sneak peak of Treasure Buddies. (Ages 6 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars Hocus Pocus Revisited September 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the first Buddies movie I have watched, so I can't compare it to the others. The first thing I have to say is that the puppies are adorable, the kids are charming, and the set is colorful. The second thing is that (at the risk of sounding picky) this movie is basically a remake of the Disney movie Hocus Pocus with a few minor changes, different actors, and of course adding the puppies. Hocus Pocus has always been one of my very favorite holiday movies, but I am genuinely shocked that Disney produced this Buddies movie with basically the EXACT same story line. Were they short on writers or short on creativity? If you have seen Hocus Pocus, you will be amazed at the similarities.

The story opens in a big old house in the past, just 75 years ago vs. 300 years, and sets up the whole story for present day Halloween in a small town. Instead of three witches who are brought back to life by a candle, it's a warlock brought back to life by a mirror. Instead of sucking the life out of children, the warlock needs the souls of 5 puppies (not as scary as it sounds). People are turned into little talking animals, just like Hocus Pocus, and the warlock wanders the streets filled with trick-or-treaters searching for his stolen spell book (sound familiar). All of the town's clueless parents are at the town Halloween dance and don't believe the children when they come looking for help. Seriously, I think they must have used the same script and just replaced the teenaged children with this younger group (more akin to the Goonies clan) and the Buddies. The children seem to be the main characters is this movie, with the Buddies as an aside. I really expected this movie to be more centered around the puppies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Scary for kids under 5 October 1, 2011
I really can only rate this movie based on the first ten minutes. It took only 10 minutes to scare my 5 year olds before we turned it off. I'm very surprise that this movie is rated G!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Way too SCARY for G and kids under 8!!! October 1, 2011
The first 5 minutes of this movie had my 7 year old in tears. It was way too scary and while we watched for 5 more minutes to actually see the buddies and see if she may like it... she was too freaked out and didn't want to watch them anymore. Do NOT get this movie if your kids get a little scared at spooky things - it will not be enjoyable for them at all!

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment, not a movie for young viewers October 8, 2011
By sarahj
After seeing (and really enjoying) all the previous Buddies movies, this was a huge disappointment. First of all, it is much too sinister and scary for the demographic that would likely be drawn to this movie, i.e. preschool-early elementary. Stealing puppies' souls to draw out the spirits of the netherworld??? That is just a little too dark. The other Buddies' movies had elements of peril and suspense, but they were much more age appropriate and lighthearted. They also were balanced with lots of humor and a good story line, both of which are in limited supply in this movie. If you are expecting a film with the same tone and character as the previous, very cute Buddies movies, skip this one. No one in our family liked it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spooky Buddies too spooky! October 24, 2011
By Honeybd
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My kids have enjoyed all the other buddy movies and couldn't wait to see this one. Unfortunately, they walked away scared and I left the room annoyed. The subject matter did not deserve a G rating and wasn't appropriate for little kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars Down right painful October 15, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a cute, entertaining Buddies movie, skip this one. A Disney movie about talking dogs on an adventure would be suitable for 3 to 6 year olds, but within two minutes I needed to explain what souls and ghosts are while blocking out images of an extremely scary dog from Hell. The movie does little to redeem it self from there. There is too little interaction with the Buddies, and it just seems like the writers created just enough material to make a trailer look interesting and didn't care about making a light, entertaining family movie. Air Buddies and Space Buddies both have entertaining, thought out stories and witty dialogue for both kids and parents. Save your money and let's hope Treasure Buddies gets some of the original magic of the Buddies movies back.

5.0 out of 5 stars The kids loved it! September 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Typical Buddies movie - if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Nothing of particular note about this one... but both my 9yo and 6yo LOVED it. The 9yo thinks it's the best of the Buddies movies.

The Buddies are back for another family film for 2011 titled "Spooky Buddies".

For those who have watched the previous "Buddies" films (Note: buddies are the children of Buddy the Golden Retriever, the star of the "Air Bud" films of the '90s), the good news for fans who enjoyed the more involving storyline with the last year's film "The Search for Santa Paws", co-writer and director Robert Vince and co-writer Anna McRoberts continue with the same formula where the film is not all about the buddies but bringing back the "Air Bud" style of featuring the story around the human characters.


"Spooky Buddies" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1) and I have to say that the film looks awesome on Blu-ray. A lot of outdoor shots with sunlight and many costumes of various colors, it definitely lends to the vibrant colors of the film. But also during Halloween night, the black levels are nice and deep but for the most part, detail of the costumes and the closeup of the dogs look great!

So, there is a good amount of detail this time around and I didn't detect any artifacts, combing, banding or any significant problems while watching the film. Another quality Disney presentation on Blu-ray.


"Spooky Buddies" is a dialogue-driven film and the dialogue is crystal clear as its coming through the center and front channels. But one will notice with this latest film is how much of the music plays a big part, especially as it is utilized in the surround channels. A pretty solid soundtrack for this film courtesy of Brahm Wenger and also you get a pretty groovy cover of "Monster Mash" during the Halloween party segment of the film.

Subtitles are presented in English SDH, Spanish and French.
