Anyone want a puppy for Christmas?

The buddies are back for Christmas and are still tugging on hearts everywhere as when they said there is no cuter puppy than a golden retriever puppy, they really were not joking. Following in the footsteps of Air Bud and Space Buddies, Santa Buddies adds to the line's long lived success.Unlike so many of the Disney movies we review the Santa Buddies are living breathing puppies which Connor finds fascinating. I'm fairly sure now Connor is convinced that Melos and Boo (our Chihuahuas) can talk and they have been holding out on him all this time.


The Santa Buddies story is kinda familiar. It reminds me the story of Scrooge and the Christmas Carol as even the little orphan puppy looking for a home is named Tiny. Though with Santa mixed in it's sort of its own original twist to the story, not to mention the dogs! It's a super cute story and by far my favorite thus far of the "Buddies" movies. Something about puppies and Christmas just go together no matter who you are.

Disney released Santa Buddies in as always my all time favorite format a blu-ray and dvd combo pack. For those of you that have not previously heard my ranting and ravings on this regardless if you own a blu-ray player yet, though after the great sales available over the last week on them shame on you if you don't, you cannot loose by buying the dvd & blu-ray combos. We keep our blu-ray copy at home in the entertainment center and our standard dvd copy goes with us on car trips or kept in Connor's room for bedtime viewings. Either way it's like getting two copies of the movie for the same price as one. If you're pre-blu-ray player then your all set for when you do upgrade and for those of us that have one its just an extra bonus.




I've not yet watched the standard version but the blu-ray version is fabulous. The sound is crisp and the special effects are actually really great for a direct to dvd film. The extras are limited compared to some of the more big budget Disney films but there is a sing along and music video included on both versions. Overall its a super cute Christmas film that will be a great edition to your video library! I grew up in a generation where Christmas specials and movies were just a way of life on Christmas break! It seems like you see less and less of them these days so its really cool to see a new one that we really enjoy!

You can pick up your own copy of Santa Buddies right now on Amazon!

I have two copies of Santa Buddies to give away to my readers. The grand prize winner will win a copy of Santa Buddies plus a really cool Tiny plush doll and the second winner will win a copy of Santa Buddies.

What Disney movie(s) are on my holiday wishlist? Hmmm...I've been collecting Disney movies for years. Think I have almost everything already! However many of them are on VHS, so I guess anything (older) I don't have on DVD or anything newer I'm missing that I didn't buy yet. Vague enough? LOL! Thanks for the contest. Happy Holidays! :)
