Friendly, But Ill-Informed Ghost

Appeared in The Real Ghostbusters;
"Buster the Ghost"

Buster 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.


As a Tooth Fairy, Buster was caught practicing unlicensed dentistry and warned to stop. 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. 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.
