Buster is a fifth grader and a friend of Lawson. He is a jock and a bully like Jocko and Cheay. He is tall, sports spiky auburn hair and wears a blue shirt with two red stripes.
In the episode "Bad Hair Day", he was desperate to get the Mikey haircut because he was going to his cousin's wedding, but did not get the haircut. He was the only one who didn't get it, apart from Spinelli and Gretchen who were absent from school.
He was voiced by Kath Soucie in "Pharaoh Bob" and Erik Von Detten for the remainder of the series.
- He slightly resembles T.J.'s 1996 design in the pilot.
- Buster dresses similarly to Jeffy from Daria, which shares many of the same writers as Recess.
