The perfect DVD for Valentine’s Day gift giving, Snow Buddies brings home all the fun and excitement to be enjoyed again and again by the entire family.
The five lovable talking pups are back in a brand new escapade! Hip-hoppin’ B-Dawg, the feisty RoseBud, zen Buddha, dirt-loving MudBud and the big fella Budderball are off to the Arctic for a daring Alaskan dogsled race. This time, the Buddies are joined by two new friends, a wise old sled Alaskan sled dog, Talon, and Shasta, a husky pup as well as a couple of not-so-friendly new acquaintances, as they tackle hilarious and hair-raising exploits in a heartwarming story of teamwork, triumph of the puppy spirit and adventure. Snow Buddies stars Dylan Sprouse, Jim Belushi and Kris Kristofferson. Robert Vince and Anna McRoberts return as writers and producers with Vince once again taking the reins as director. The DVD includes all new bonus, including hilarious bloopers, a brand new music video featuring Hannah Montana’s Mitchel Musso putting a hip-hop spin on the classic tune, “Lean on Me,” a behind the scenes “dog-u-mentary,” and more!
An unauthorized detour onto an ice cream truck lands the five Buddies on the next plane to Alaska in this all new adventure! Stranded in the small Arctic town of Ferntiuktuk, the pups are befriended by Shasta, a husky pup, and his owner, a young boy named Adam. The boy has big dreams of becoming a sled dog racer and even his dad’s fears can’t stop him from entering the big race. If the Buddies can get him to the finish line they will be on their way home, so they turn to the wise old Husky hermit Talon for mentorship. Sure they can win with the former champion sled dog in their corner, the pups go into intensive training. But on the day of the race, they unexpectedly find themselves on their own. Unfamiliar terrain, harsh weather conditions and dirty tricks from a rival musher teach the Buddies some valuable lessons about heart, friendship and following your dreams. It’s not the size of the individual dogs in the race but the heart of the team that counts.
