Buddy the Gob is a 1934 Looney Tunes short directed by Friz Freleng. The cartoon features Buddy.


Buddy is a "gob", a sailor in the navy, who visits China and witnesses a local celebration of the 150th birthday anniversary of the Sacred Dragon, wherein a young girl will be sacrificed. Buddy decides to rescue the young girl and ends up being chased by a dragon and the incensed village. Of course, by the end of the cartoon, Buddy and the girl escape safely.


  • This cartoon is Friz Freleng's directorial debut at Leon Schlesinger's.
  • As was typical for the time, since the cartoon's setting is China, the cartoon features gags centered around Chinese culture and Asian stereotypes that would be considered racist by today's standards.
  • The cartoon also briefly features a caricature of Jimmy Durante, a favorite target of WB cartoons at this time.
