Where to Watch Every Air Bud Movie Ever: A Streaming Guide

Published on

This might surprise you, but there are actually 14 movies in the Air Bud franchise, from sports films to superpowered puppies, treasure-hunting hounds… and even one where the iconic golden retrievers go to space! Check out our guide below to find out where you can watch every Air Bud movie online using streaming services like Disney+, Netflix, Prime Video and so much more.

In 1997, the world was introduced to Buddy, the basketball-playing golden retriever in the film Air Bud. In the movie, Buddy escapes his abusive owner and finds a kid practicing basketball by himself. The two hit it off and it’s revealed that Buddy has a knack for shooting hoops, eventually leading him to join the school’s basketball team. The film wasn’t necessarily a box office hit, grossing just over $27 million…but compared to its small budget of $3 million, it turned a solid profit.

From there, we got another cinematic sequel, Air Bud: Golden Receiver, which follows Buddy joining the high school football team. The film was ultimately a box office dud, making Golden Receiver the only other theatrically-released Air Bud movie. But Air Bud was very successful throughout the following years thanks to the home rental market, and the franchise got numerous straight-to-video sequels like Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch (baseball), and Air Bud: Spikes Back (volleyball).

In 2006, a new spin-off film series was launched called Air Buddies. Designed for younger kids, the films follow a group of puppies who go on various adventures. And if you thought it was wild watching Buddy play basketball and other sports, you won’t believe the hijinks these pups get into. From the ghost-hunting Spooky Buddies to the space-traversing Space Buddies, and even their own superhero take with Super Buddies, the Air Buddies series is totally bonkers, but also a great time for kids.

The franchise received another spin-off with two Santa Paws films. Filled with a new set of pooches, the first film follows Paws, a dog who helps Santa bring Christmas cheer to the world, and the sequel centers around Paws’ puppies, who must learn the true meaning of Christmas.
