Air Bud, also known as Buddy, is the titular protagonist of the Air Bud series. He plays a different sport in each film (basketball, football, soccer, baseball and volleyball, respectively). In Air Bud: World pup, he becomes the father of five puppies: Budderball, B-Dawg, Buddha, MudBud and RoseBud, though none of them are given actual names until the first Air Buddies movie. Air Bud only appeared in the first two films of those series.

Air Bud films

The first two films in the franchise were released in theaters, while later entries were direct-to-DVD releases.

Air Buddies films

Air Bud has a less important role in Air Buddies and Snow Buddies. The films were all straight-to-DVD (later Blu-ray) releases, except for the first film that remains a DVD only release.

  • Air Buddies (2006) – Buddy and Molly were dognapped by Grim and Denning for Selkirk's greedy purposes. It's up to the buddies (and other animals) to come to the rescue.
  • Snow Buddies (2008) – Sadly, his final appearance. Budddy and Molly go to Alaska to find their puppies.
  • Santa Buddies (2009) – Although he does not appear at all, he is briefly mentioned (though not by name) by B-Dawg at the start of Santa Buddies.

Other films

In Ralph Breaks the Internet, Air Bud is mentioned by the Stormtroopers when they lost track of Vanellope, thinking she was hiding in the Air Bud pavilion.
