Plot Synopsis

BUDDY THUNDERSTRUCK is a half-hour, stop-motion action-comedy series that follows the adventures of a semi-truck racing dog named Buddy Thunderstruck and Darnell, his albino ferret mechanic. It all goes down in race-obsessed Greasepit, a place chock full of larger-than-life characters and nitro-burning, gear-slamming, tire-squealing, fish-tailing good times. Together, there's no race they won't win and no scheme too dumb to try. On Friday, March 10, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 12-episode first season.
Netflix released "The Maybe Pile," a 15-minute BUDDY THUNDERSTRUCK special, on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. In this quarter-hour program, champion truck-racing dog Buddy and his best friend, ferret mechanic Darnell, paw through the "maybe pile" and test out a bunch of crazy stunts.
