Buster [1] is a ghost that is often accompanied by a sentient pocket watch. He has tried many jobs, but ended up being fired all the time. [2]

HistoryEdit

As a Tooth Fairy, Buster was caught practicing unlicensed dentistry and warned to stop. [3] However, on a routine job, Buster again performed unlicensed dentistry on a boy named Tommy. Soon after, Buster was detained by the Tooth Police and fired. While wallowing in sorrow, he saw a television ad for the Ghostbusters' services and thought that they were people who took care of ghosts.

Despite Egon's objection, the Ghostbusters hired Buster as a cook. While they were out on a bust, he invited many ghosts to the Firehouse and threw a party. The presence of so many entities disturbed the ethereal balance and threatened to create a hole in the space-time continuum. [4] [5] It was only then did Buster realize exactly what it was the Ghostbusters did. The ghosts were forced out of the Firehouse by venting the Containment Unit. He then got a job at a ghost town in California, but he left his pocket watch behind. [6]

TriviaEdit

  • Buster doesn't care for Zombies because they have bad teeth. [7]
  • When listing a previous occupation as a Ghost Writer, Buster states, "You can't get any lower than that." This appears to be an inside joke made by the writers of the episode.
  • Buster has had at least 6 jobs
  1. House Haunter [8]
  2. Graveyard Ghastly [9]
  3. Ghost Writer [10]
  4. Tooth Fairy
  5. Firehouse Cook
  6. Ghost Town Custodian
  • Buster is a good cook. [11]
  • On page three of Ghostbusters Issue #1, Buster makes a non-canon cameo as an audience member of "The Ja'nine Show."
