"Prepare to put your paws up––the tour the world’s been howling for is finally here! Grab the entire family, plenty of treats, and settle in to sing along with Pup Star: World Tour, out now on NETFLIX."

Are you kids fans of Tiny and Scrappy?  If you are scratching your head and wondering who these people are, where have you been?  Just kidding! :-)  First of all, these aren't people, they are actually pups, who star in the hit franchise movie from Air Bud Entertainment, Pup Star.  Back on May 5th, Pup Star: World Tour was released to Netflix and for digital download, which fans of the Pup Star movies were eagerly awaiting the release since last year's Pup Star movie, which introduced fans to Tiny's twin sister, Scrappy.

As the movie title suggests, this third installment in the popular Pup Star movies takes fans around the globe searching for the next Pup Star champion.  Tiny and the judges visit places like India, Mexico, Africa and beyond.  At each stop, "pup idols" give it their best shot to get a golden bone or vote of the doggy judges.  I have to say that out of the three Pup Star movies we have seen (countless time...I lost count after the 25 time of viewing each), that Pup Star: World Tour has the best soundtrack of songs, and will have you singing along, especially to the opening number.

In the second Pup Star movie we met, Scrappy, and in this new movie from Air Bud Entertainment, we meet "Julio," a Mexican heartthrob that seems to steal the hearts of everyone in the audience, as well as Tiny's.  But, something isn't right with "Julio," and as the movie progresses we find old bad guys (think Roland, dog catcher and Bark the Bounty Hunter) resurface to try and bring down Tiny yet again.  Don't worry, I will not ruin the ending, if my chance your family hasn't had a chance to watch the new Pup Star: World Tour, which is now available on Netflix to stream as well purchase on Digital HD, as of May 5th.


"Air Bud Entertainment's PUP STAR is back, with an all-new movie that takes the popular singing dogs on trip around the world, where Tiny and friends find fantastic new songs and meet exciting new canine singers that prove music really is the universal language!"


Here is a quick video my girls did giving their own review/thoughts on this movie.


I also took a video of the girls watching and singing along to the intro theme song, which I have to say is very catchy.  


My girls can't go a day without playing this portion of the movie just to sing and dance along to in the living room. And, whenever they are playing with their puppy toys, I will usually hear them singing this and other songs from the previous Pup Star movie soundtracks, which you can buy from iTunes, or stream from your Amazon Prime Music account.

If watching the movie wasn't enough to get the girls excited about Pup Star, they were also sent a cute cardboard suitcase a couple of weeks ago.  

Inside was a promo code to download the movie to watch in advance of the Netflix release, as well official Pup Star World Tour (PSWT) kitchen tools including a spoon, spatula, rolling pin, baster and two PSWT aprons.  There were also a FREE coupon for the girls to pick up a box of our rescue dog's favorite ice cream, Dogsters Ice Cream Style Treats for Dogs.  There was also a VCA Animal Hospital KONG squeaky ball and bag of Old Mother Hubbard's Natural Dog treats, included in the box, as these are some of the fabulous partners of the Pup Star: World Tour movie.  The girls would have been happy with all these great PSWT goodies, but that wasn't all. Inside the suitcase was a recipe book and letter inviting the girls to create one of the four dishes provided in the Pup Star World Tour Recipe Booklet, and have  it judged, for a chance to win a trip to Orlando where you would stay 7 days in an Extended Stay American hotel (you can even bring your pup to these hotels).  I wish you could have heard the loud squeal the girls let out as I read the letter that told them about this fun cooking contest.

The girls quickly grabbed the PSWT Recipe Booklet from the box and started to flip through it.  It was hard to choose a recipe as first as they said they all looked tasty and challenging to make. But, they ended up choosing the Mexican Street Corn recipe, as they both like the "Julio" dog in the movie.

Here are some photos and video I took of the girls cooking up their own version of the Mexican Street Corn dish.  

Who doesn't love crumbling cotija cheese?

They are owning the kitchen. :-)

Mexican Street Corn Recipe
(Sweet corn topped with crumbly cotija cheese and just the right about of spice -- the best corn you've ever had!

Getting ready to make something amazing! :-)

Yield: Approx. 6 ears
Cook Time: Approx. 45 minutes


  • 6 ears of fresh sweet corn
  • 6 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 6 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp. chipotle chili powder
  • 2 limes, quartered


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place corn husks directly on the oven rack
3.  Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until fork tender.
4. While corn is cooking, in a small bowl combine garlic powder and mayonnaise
5. When corn is done brush with garlic mayo. Roll in cotija cheese.

6. Sprinkle with cilantro and chili powder
7. Squeeze with fresh lime juice, if desired.

They had so much fun reading the recipe and doing all the cutting and prep work themselves.  I handled putting the corn in and taking it out of the oven, but they did everyone else, including the plating.  My girls were having so much fun in the kitchen and were so proud of their final dish.  

My youngest daughter, was even giving me some plating tips to make my serving their dinner fancier.  

She said a little garnish goes a long way.  I guess she was been busy watching cooking shows on television. :-) 

And, my husband couldn't stop eating the corn on the cob, so we didn't have to ask if he liked it! :-)

My girls are not fans of eating corn right off the cob as it usually gets stuck in their teeth and is too messy.  So, we took the Mexican Street Corn recipe up a notch and it made it our own by making homemade tortilla bowls to use as edible salad bowls. The girls love adding their own toppings to their taco and salad bowls we make, so I knew they would have fun showing my readers how we make our own own homemade tortilla bowls, and how easy it is to make a Mexican Street Corn Salad bowl, even your pickiest eater will eat. :-)

Here is the video the girls made, where I explain how easy it is to make the homemade tortilla bowl...

And, here is a photo I showed of the girls showing off the tortilla bowls once they came out of the oven and cooled a few minutes....

Last, but not least, here are the Mexican Street Corn salad bowls my girls made, and loved!

However you choose to eat this dish, you will be in for a real treat, as it is the best tasting corn dish you will ever have. :-) Yum!

If you are looking for a fun family movie/dinner night this weekend, why not consider having the kids help you in the kitchen to make this easy recipe.  Then, when you are done eating, settle in to watch the new Pup Star: World Tour movie.  My girls are planning to watch it again tonight after seeing me write up this post. And, you know what? I don't mind, as I like the movie, too! :-)


I want to thank everyone at Air Bud Entertainment, as well as all the movie partners/sponsors for sending along the PSWT suitcase filled with goodies and letting us watch the movie before it released to Netflix.  The movie released back on May 5th, and the girls have already watched it 15 times.  The first day on Netflix, they watched it twice in one day.  The girls can't get enough of Pup Star: World Tour, and I know your kids will feel the same, when you tune in to Netflix and watch this fun family-friendly movie, which will have you all singing and dancing along to the movie.
