American audiences first became familiar with this Golden Retriever through his appearances on the sitcom Full House, where he played Comet, the Tanner family dog. In 1997, Buddy starred in the first Air Bud film, as a pooch who is ridiculously (in both senses of the word) good at people sports, specifically basketball. He died shortly after. The next two films in the series, Air Bud: Golden Receiver and Air Bud 3: World Pup (above), featured a variety of dogs playing football and soccer.
