The movie for today’s episode, Santa Buddies, came in via request from Jim Eltringham. It’s part of the Air Bud Cinematic Universe. From IMDB: “When Puppy Paws (the fun-loving son of Santa Paws) gets bored, he finds Budderball on Santa’s naughty list and figures he’s just the dog to show him how to be an ordinary pup. When the magical Christmas Icicle starts to melt however, and the world begins to forget the true meaning of the season, it’s up to Puppy Paws and his newfound Buddies to journey back to the North Pole and save Christmas.” We discuss why Christopher Lloyd’s dog catcher character hated dogs, why Richard Kind voiced the head dog-elf, and how bad George Wendt mailed in his role as Santa. A must-listen for all lovers of Christmas, dogs, or dogs who save Christmas.
