Tooth Fairies were apparently ghosts or ghost-like beings hired by a "Tooth Fairy Organization" to secretly retrieve children's lost baby teeth and leave small sums of money in their place.


Ghosts who were hired to be a tooth fairy were given a uniform to signify their position. At least one type of uniform consisted of a red coat with a tooth brush motif and tooth brush shaped shoulder boards. They also had a red hat, white, cane shaped magic wand, and a change purse that would exchange teeth for coins.

A tooth fairy's job is to sneak into a child's room at night and exchange the baby tooth the child left under his/her pillow for money. They were not supposed to get caught, a goal which made ghosts especially suited for that line of work. If a tooth fairy abused or was unable to fulfill his job, he may be apprehended by the Tooth Police and reprimanded or fired.


Buster the ghost was a hired as a tooth fairy but he was eventually fired for getting caught practicing unlicensed dentistry on children in their sleep. He was apprehended by the Tooth Police and stripped of his uniform.
