Buster Franklin Carmichael is one of Susie's two brothers on Rugrats, and the oldest of the male children in the Carmichael family. He enjoys playing sports and is admired by his younger siblings Edwin and Susie, probably because of his bravery. Buster and his older sister Alisa often fight for dominance, as they are the oldest of the Carmichael children.


Buster is "the king of sportsmanship" for the Carmichaels. Buster, his siblings, and his parents all make their debut in "Meet the Carmichaels", in which their family move into the neighborhood. Like his older sister Alisa, Susie admires Buster for his bravery. He is a typical 10-year-old boy, very active, loves games, and is often playing sports. He likes to play with Susie when he can, but he has a habit of trying to be dominating.

Buster has a sibling rivalry with his older sister Alisa, as seen in "The Last Babysitter" where they butt heads for dominance and Buster then plays a prank on her after she orders his friend Sticky to go home. However, because of Susie and Tommy's interference, his prank fails and Alisa sends him to bed early.


Buster has brown-colored skin and a pair of round white eyes with black pupils. He has dark brown lips and many white teeth. The character can often be seen wearing a red-and-white jersey and has dark brown hair.


  • Despite being a sibling of one of the main characters, Buster does not appear to be present in the 2021 Rugrats reboot.
