Butlins Skyline Gang – The changes to Bud

March 15, 2016 Off By Laura TMOT
If you are an avid fan of Butlins and the Skyline Gang you may have seen some of the images of the new look Bud.
Bud used to have red dreadlocks and skate around on his skateboard using the catchphrase “awesome”. However this year he decides that he wants a new look and Mimi performs a bit of magic that transforms him into a highly intelligent boy with glasses, short dair hair and his name in what looks like a version of the periodic table on his chest.
Poor Dude has lost his place as the brainy one among the gang. as Bud takes his intelligence to a whole new level. Although shocked by this change the adults and children alike that watched the show seemed to enjoy it and it wasn’t long before we saw children running around the Skyline in the new look Bud costume that was available in the Butlins store.

Every time Butlins make a change you will always have people who complain but to keep things fresh and new they need to do these things and I look forward to seeing more of the Skyline Gang shows with this new version of Bud helping the gang to solve their many problems.

Check out this video which includes the new look Bud.

We like the new look Bud but I do wonder if the message that you can change your personality based on your looks is the right one to be giving to our kids?
