TV Watch ‘Buddy’ on Nick

Nick Home Cinema premieres “Buddy” on June 8, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. It’s the ‘true’ story of Gertrude “Trudy” Lintz, an eccentric who helped change people’s perception of apes when she raised a baby gorilla. On her New York estate, Trudy and her physician husband care for a menagerie, including four chimpanzees, whom she treats as her children: She teaches them table manners, to play croquet, mix martinis and do housework. But her gorilla, Buddy, is her favourite. Buddy grows up but it becomes difficult for him to fit into the human world. Finally what happens? Does Trudy let him go?
