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 appearances. His latest 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, and Episode 4201.
- For his initial appearances in Season 12, Buster was performed by Kevin Clash. Ed Christie performed Buster in a musical number staged for the 1982 Daytime Emmy Awards.
- The Buster puppet was often used throughout the series as a substitute for the darker brown horse puppet used for Fred the Wonder Horse.
- According to a Here is Your Life sketch, Buster has an identical twin brother, Whatshisname.
- No Cookies 'Til Dinner (1987)
