Buzz Lightyear

Buzz Lightyear is the lovable space ranger from Disney/Pixar's 'Toy Story' series. He can be seen in films such as 'Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, 'Toy Story,' 'Toy Story 2,' and 'Toy Story 3.' He also has cameos in 'Cars' and 'Finding Nemo,' while he can also be seen in shorts 'Hawaiian Vacation,' and 'Small Fry.' He is the star of the television show 'Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.' He can be found in video games like Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, and Toy Story Mania. You can also find other merchandise such as clothes, toys, games, comic books, coloring books and pins with Buzz on them.

He hails from Andy's Room, until Toy Story 3 which I would give away anything in case some people haven't seen it. Buzz has many friends that help him out, most notable Woody who is his best friend, and Jessie who is his girlfriend. Others include all of the toys from Andy's Room, and his new friends from Toy Story 3. His enemies include Emperor Zurg, Lotso, Sid, and the other Buzz Lightyear to name a few.

Buzz wears a very cool futuristic space suit. The colors are white, purple, and lime green. It has flight wings, lasers, a com link to star command, a purple hood, and clear retractable helmet. Buzz has a fun personality, he is tough and often shares the role of leader with Woody.

*FUN FACT* Pixar used lime green and purple on his suit because they are the favorite colors of John Lasseter and his wife.

He has been voiced by two different people who are in my opinion two of the funniest men in Hollywood: Tim Allen and Patrick Warburton. He was created by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Joe Ranft, and Pete Docter.

Buzz Lightyear can be seen in Disney parks around the world as a meet and greet character. He can also be seen in shows and parades, along with at All Star Movies resort Toy Story section, and in Fantasmic on the riverboat. Finally you can find Buzz in Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin in Walt Disney World, Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters in Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland, and in Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast in Disneyland Paris.
