Air Bud Movie Collection: Your favorite Golden Receiver comes to Disney+ in October

The Air Bud movie collection comes to Disney+ in October to bring family-friendly sports hijinks to the spooky season.

Attention, dog lovers! Disney+ wants to inspire you to wag your tail by bringing the Air Bud movie collection to the mouse-eared streaming service! The sports comedy franchise featuring the beloved golden retriever and his animal friends has been a staple of family entertainment for over 20 years. Now, a new generation of fans can enjoy the K-9’s hijinks on Disney+! The Air Bud movie collection arrives on Disney+ on Sunday, October 1.

Charles Martin directs Air Bud from a script by Paul Tamasy and Aaron Mendelssohn. The original comedy revolves around Buddy, an athletic golden retriever with an uncanny knack for sinking baskets and dribbling circles around his opponents on the court. The story focuses on a young boy named Josh Framm (Kevin Zegers) who is having trouble making the basketball team. However, when he meets a stray golden retriever with mad basketball skills, the duo boosts the team and makes it to the finals!

Other additions to the Air Bud movie collection include 1998’s Air Bud: Golden Receiver, where Buddy struts his stuff on a football field; 2000’s Air Bud: World Pup, where Buddy plays soccer; 2002’s Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, where Buddy, you guessed it, plays baseball; and the cleverly titled 2003 comedy Air Bud: Spikes Back, where Buddy plays volleyball better than Maverick and Iceman of Top Gun fame.

After dazzling audiences with his athletic prowess, the Air Bud franchise introduces Air Buddies, a new direction for the series, featuring five adorable puppies: B-Dawg, Mudbud, Buddah, Rosebud, and Budderball! In the original Air Buddies, the pups’ parents, Buddy and Molly, are dognapped, and it’s up to the Air Buddies to save the day! The Air Buddies film series includes Air BuddiesSnow BuddiesSpace BuddiesSanta BuddiesSpooky BuddiesTreasure Buddies, and Super Buddies!

The Air Bud movie collection is for you if you need something to watch with the kids in October (or to put on the tablet while you grab a tasty beverage). The franchise brings hardcore late ’90s and 2000s energy to the animal adventure genre that’s all but extinct. Be honest. Were you an Air Bud fan? Let us know in the comments below!
