Will My Buddy, Slinky, M.A.S.K. and Silly Putty ever get their close-ups?
'The My Buddy Movie'
Type of Movie: A heartwarming recapturing-youth comedy.
A boy and his My Buddy are inseparable through childhood, but one day the boy corrects a phrasing of the theme song to "My Buddy and *I*" and the doll loses its friendly powers. On the bright side, the boy becomes a successful newspaper copy editor. Years later, though, he's downsized as part of the death of print media. Out of work and friendless, he turns again to his beloved childhood doll, who teaches him that there are more important things in life than proper grammar and one of those things is friendship.
Potential tagline: You're never too old to need a Buddy.
