Buster
Occupation Biker
First appearance 7th January 2002
Duration 2002
Played by Dave Nicholls

Buster was a biker friend of Dennis Stringer's and turned up with a squad of his fellows at the funeral of Dennis at St. Mary's Church in January 2002 to honour their old pal. Buster's own bike carried a wreath in the shape of a wrench.

Dennis's girlfriend, Janice Battersby, was delighted to see them and, at the funeral tea later, told her that the service was first class, remarking that he'd been to quite a few funerals so he ought to know. Belying his tough image, he later told her that if she needed anything, she only had to ask as Dennis had been, "one of the best".

From Muppet Wiki

Performer:

Buster the Horse is Forgetful Jones' trusty horse. He first appeared on Sesame Street in 1980, and remained a regular until at least 1995, though he has since popped from time to time.

Buster often helps Forgetful Jones remember things, like brushing his teeth. To say that Buster is no ordinary horse is an understatement. Besides having the ability to speak, Buster is capable of brushing his owner's teeth with his hooves, singing, and driving a jeep.

After the death of Richard Hunt (Forgetful's performer), Buster continued to make solo performances. His most recent appearances occurred in Season 36; continuing with the season's focus on health, he appeared in a segment about brushing teeth. He also appeared briefly in Episode 4089, buying fruit from Alan.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Buster redirects here. For the Decepticon Godmaster, see Buster (Masterforce).
Buster Witwicky is a human friend of the Autobots from the Generation One continuity family.
Real men wear pink.

Unlike his father Sparkplug, Buster Witwicky doesn't understand cars -- or for that matter, anything mechanical. Buster prefers reading books, much to the frustration of his father. If only Buster were interested in something useful, like auto repair. Instead, foolish Buster, if he keeps on reading, may end up with a paid scholarship to college. That is a road that could only lead to ruin.

He has an older brother, Spike, who is away at college, and another brother Butch who is just... away.

You probably don't want to know where Buster's other hand is.

Buster and his girlfriend Jesse were making out at a drive-in theatre (blocking the movie from view of his friend "O") when their car was hit from behind by a yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Buster got out to investigate and discovered that the little car was unmanned. There was no one inside! Suddenly, the drive-in theatre became a war zone as jets appeared and attacked. During an explosion, the Beetle was damaged. Buster was stunned to realize the car seemed to be crying (the puss), and leaking a strange substance which was not oil! Buster sent his friends to get help, while he drove the Beetle home, figuring his father could fix it.

His father, Sparkplug, was overjoyed at first when he stumbled across Buster and the Beetle in his garage. Had his son decided to follow in his footsteps? But before Buster could explain, the damaged Volkswagen Beetle spoke to them. "Help me, please! I'm dying!" The Transformers (comic issue)

Buster convinced his father to fix the Autobot, and the boy quickly became friends with him. Buster and Sparkplug became embroiled in the Autobot/Decepticon conflict, and Sparkplug developed a technique to allow Transformers to use Earth fuels that haven't been converted to Energon. When the Decepticons kidnapped Sparkplug and attempted to force him to duplicate the process for them, he tricked them by tampering with the fuel. Sparkplug was rescued before the Decepticon attack on the Autobots thanks to Gears and Spider-Man, but when an argument among the Autobots about his loyalties caused him to suffer a heart attack (though unleashing a wall of flame in front of him didn't help), he was rushed to the hospital by Ratchet and Buster.

Sparkplug always knew his son would eventually get ahead.

While they were gone, the Decepticons attacked, but at the moment of their victory, the poisoned fuel caused the Decepticons to fall inoperative. However, the Autobots' victory was short-lived, as Shockwave arrived, having recently been awakened from his four million year old sleep on Earth, and quickly defeated the Autobots. The Last Stand This left Ratchet the only functioning Autobot, with the others inactive inside the now-Decepticon-occupied Ark. Buster volunteered to sneak inside to see what was going on, and in the course of doing so found the severed head of Optimus Prime. The New Order

Prime told him that he was the only hope for the Autobots, understandably confusing the human. Prime told Buster to disconnect two wires from his head and to apply them to his (Buster's) temples. This shocked Buster and rendered him unconscious for a time. When he woke up, he made his way out of the Ark and reunited with Ratchet. Unknown to Buster, this process passed the essence of the Autobot Creation Matrix to him in order to keep it out of Shockwave's hand. The Worse of Two Evils!

Yeah, but is it art?

While in possession of the Matrix energy, Buster developed telekinetic powers over machines, but they were often accompanied by searing pain in his head. After Ratchet had managed to defeat Megatron (thanks to help from the Dinobots) and free the Autobots (except for Optimus' head, which Shockwave still had captive), Repeat Performance Shockwave learned of Buster's possession of the Matrix energy and sent the (for now) mindless shell of Jetfire to retrieve the human. Buster used his Creation Matrix powers to disassemble Jetfire, then reassemble him and control him directly. After an attempt to infiltrate Shockwave's base to rescue Prime's head backfired, Buster was captured, only to eventually regain control of Jetfire and free Prime. Prime Time!

After passing the Matrix back to Prime Wheeljack and Ratchet built a robotic exosuit for him, much to Prime’s disapproval. In an attempt to prove himself, Buster took the suit and went to the Decepticon Fortress and managed to defeat Frenzy in battle. Unfortunately he was then attacked and pursued by Shockwave. Only the intervention of the Autobots saved his life. Robot Buster!

Hmmm. I have some kind of fuzz on my chin. That's never happened before...

Buster found himself plagued by dreams in which he encountered a new breed of Transformers. Linking minds with Optimus Prime, it was revealed that the Matrix had left an imprint in his mind of the Special Teams, next generation of combining Transformers. The Decepticons had managed to eavesdrop on the vision and so the designs were also revealed to then. Devastation Derby!, Second Generation!

Jetfire later approached Buster, who he felt able to talk to because of the part Buster had played in his creation. A number of errors in judgement had caused him to become concerned that because he had been created on Earth he had a greater loyalty to humans than to the Autobots. Buster was able to convince him that he should be proud to be the first Earth-born Autobot. The Gift

Good? Bad? I'm the guy with the squeegee.

Buster would later play a major role in disabling Ratbat's plan to hypnotize humans into giving fuel to the Decepticons via a chain of car washes (yes, really). Buster Witwicky and the Car Wash of Doom He was also taken hostage by Ratbat in order to prevent the US military from attacking the Decepticons' base (at the time, a starship disguised as a tropical island) Club Con!

Buster's adventures with the Transformers ended soon thereafter, though his brother Spike would play a large role in the Autobot/Decepticon war as well, much to the dismay of Sparkplug (who, understandably, wanted nothing to do with the Transformers any more).

No, really. HE WANTS TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE TRANSFORMERS.
I want to tell you about the Transformers!

Coloring books

At least once, an adult Buster was portrayed as the father of Daniel Witwicky in the year 2005. Buster appeared to be married to Jesse, presumably making Daniel their child. Despite being in the future, they wore normal clothes. Crazy. The Lost Treasure of Cybertron

Dreamwave comics continuity

Following his father's death, Buster racked up enormous gambling debts, which Spike ended up having to pay off. Buster subsequently joined the military.


Trivia

  • "Buster" and "Spike," as well as Butch, were all names considered for the Witwicky boy character in early production material. One such early document shows Spike as the original name, but crossed off and corrected with "Buster" in pen (in Bob Budiansky's handwriting). This suggests that Buster was intended to be the final name of the principal human character, but either Sunbow did not receive the revised materials, or a mistake was made somewhere. It is believed that "Butch" was a very, very early name for the character. See Butch Witwicky for a more in-depth explanation.
