American-Made Buddy Thunderstruck Now on Netflix

Have you watched the new “off beat series” perfect for “kids and families” — the one and only Buddy Thunderstruck?

Buddy Thunderstruck, is a brand-new stop-motion television kids’ series created by Ryan Wiesbrock and a new Netflix Original Series. The series, which debuted back in March, follows the adventures of this special semi-truck racing dog and his albino ferret mechanic, Darnell. Buddy’s the brashest, fastest race-truck driver you’ll ever see!

What makes Buddy so great (besides being the coolest dog around) is that all animation of this show – from animation, staffing, editing, to music and more was excited in the United States, which makes Buddy extra patriotic!

This series is geared for ages 6-11, yet has humor and timing that will appeal to parents/older audiences.
