Snyder AIR BUD SPIKES BACK is
a wholesome continuation of
the series about the dog who
can play nearly any sport
imaginable. The video opens
with young Noah coaching Buddy
beautiful Golden Retriever,
through an obstacle course, in
preparation for an upcoming
fair in Fernfield, the place
"where everything is
possible." After racing
through the obstacles in only
16 seconds, Buddy runs to
school to fetch Andrea, Noah's
older sister. Buddy nearly
gets run over by a truck
driven by two losers posing as
plumbers, who plan to steal a
famous jewel that's briefly on
display at the local
museum. As Buddy reaches
Andrea and her best friend,
Tammy, it becomes clear that
Andrea is very sad because
Tammy and her family are
moving to San Diego, Calif.
Andrea eventually decides to
earn money to visit Tammy by
babysitting people's pets. The
dogs get loose one day,
however, and end up smashing
things up at the fair, so
Andrea loses most of her money
paying for the damages.
Connor, the new boy next door,
tells Andrea about a local
upcoming volleyball
tournament, where the prize is
a trip to Malibu, Calif., just
90 minutes away from San
Diego. The team is not very
good, however, until Buddy
shows up to play. The trip to
California seems within reach,
until the phony plumbers
decide they need Buddy's help
in stealing the jewel. AIR BUD
SPIKES BACK is a cute
children's video that will
appeal to youngsters,
especially younger children
who can relate to Noah,
Andrea's young brother, and
animals. Also, Andrea works
hard to earn her trip to
California to visit her
friend. She sets a good
example for young teenagers,
as does her new friend
Connor. Please address your

Moral worldview; no foul
language, but men wear
clothespins on their nose as
they use plunger on broken
toilet and man gets dizzy and
vomits; some very light
slapstick comedy such as dogs
smash fruit cart at fair; and,
nothing else objectionable.
