Trivia: A human is found as a baby by elves, is brought up by them, then finds out he is adopted and heads out to the big city to make his fortune (and there are a lot of jokes about his height thrown in). As a Terry Pratchett fan, this sounds very familiar to me. Terry has a character in his books called Carrot who was found as a baby by some dwarves and was brought up by them, then finds out he is adopted and heads off to the big city to seek his fortune. Carrot is also very innocent and has no sense of sarcasm or irony. His adopted father also says something to him about thinking he'd figure it out when he hit six feet tall.

Question: Is Buddy left handed or right handed? I'm just asking this because during the movie he acts left handed and then he acts right handed.

Answer: I can think of two possibilities: (1) he suffers from cross-dominance, where he uses one hand for certain tasks and the oppostie hand for others, or (2) he's ambidextrous (which is a rare variant of cross-dominance), which means he can perform tasks using either hand with equal adeptness.

I have cross-dominance. Never knew what it was called, thanks.

Answer: Maybe they reverse the image occasionally to make the scene 'work' better. [Or, to make Buddy appear ambidextrous. (?) ].
