Poor guy, out of work for such a long time and, unfortunately, never got any more voice roles. RIP Buster.

RIP, Blaster. He really made that character fun and it's a real shame that he could no longer find work.

While Buster live up to a nice old age, it is sad on how he did say he would want to try to make a comeback in VA work but was having a hard time doing so now sadly it will never happen again.

It does bring up an unfortunate reality regarding older voice talent on how sometimes they have a hard time finding work. Oh sure there are those like Corey Burton, Rob Paulsen, Jim Cummings, Maurice LaMarche and (to an extent) Frank Welker. But there are also those who seem to be only getting little to no voice work lately and for the former its usually to just reprise a certain old role of theirs (like Peter Cullen and Optimus Prime for example). But Casting Directors seem to want to focus a bit more on younger and newer voice talent nowadays. Now don't get me wrong giving newer voice talent plenty of attention is by all means a good thing of course. But you can be surprised how underused older voice talent can be.

While not a well known voice actor compared to some of the giants of his time, he was memorable for his lively portrayals of characters like Buster and for his fantastic delivery he would give each performance. RIP

Buster had quite a talent and sadly he was very underused, he deserved more work than what he got. RIP Buster.

One of the greatest voice actors in the biz, I luv lothar, blaster, robbie robertson and zap. I hope I can meet Mr. Buster Jones one day, the 80s cartoons were great.

He probably just retired from voice acting. Maybe he had personal things he wanted to address, maybe he was tired, etc. I hope he's still alive; this guy is awesome!

@NCZ Actually according to this interview he says he would like to be able to do voice-work again but he is now living off of pension and is having a hard time finding a job in voice-work again. Take a look here at...

@Pokejedservo Cool article. It's nice to know what he's been up to. I hope he can make a comeback in the industry; he was a pretty underrated VA in my mind.

I have tried finding that out on a couple different occasions and can't seem to find much info on him. He hasn't been in something since 1998 so maybe unfortunately he is dead...?
