Bolt – Buttermilk Waffles

With his heat vision, unbelievable strength and super bark, Bolt is a heroic dog that can take down any challenge to save his beloved human, Penny. Battling the evil green-eyed man and his cohort of fierce felines, he will go to any odds to make sure his Penny is safe. What Bolt doesn’t know, however, is that he is the main character in a popular television show. When a dramatic cliffhanger has his precious Penny being captured by the man with the green eye, Bolt embarks on a mission to bring her back.


His valiant attempt lands him in trouble though. Unaware that he has entered the real world where he is no longer a super dog with incredible powers, he gets shipped far from his Los Angeles home to the gritty streets of New York. When his powers fail him, he concludes that the dastardly styrofoam pieces have weakened him. His determination is still unwavering. He tracks down an alley cat names Mittens, an assumed accomplice of the green-eyed man. Mittens is terribly resistant, but after discovering the Bolt resides in Hollywood, she grabs the nearest map, one all the Waffle World’s from the east to west coast, and points him in the direction of his home. Bolt then takes her hostage as they track down Penny.

They catch a ride out west and gain another companion; a hamster named Rhino. Rhino, Bolt’s biggest fan, petitions to join their team and Bolt accepts. Shortly after, Rhino absently informs Mittens that he’s seen Bolt’s powers on the “magic box” that humans watch. Mittens tries to convince Bolt that he is not a super dog, but he refuses to believe her. He still has Penny to save, and he must keep his will strong if he ever wishes to see her again.

As the trio get closer to Los Angeles, Bolt finally realizes that he is not a super dog. Seemingly defeated, Rhino draws back Bolt’s determined spirit and he is off once again to find Penny. However, Mittens has cast doubt in his mind that Penny is just an actress and does not really love Bolt. Only when he sees Penny with another dog resembling himself does he accept this fact. Penny still misses Bolt deeply though, and when she is in real danger, Bolt must put aside his grief and rescue her or risk never seeing her again.
