Bunzel Fever is the twenty-ninth episode of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. It first aired on November 3, 2000, and is the forty-fourth episode in production.


It's the annual bunzel harvest on Jo-Ad but Booster misses it, believing his duties are more important. Team Lightyear is soon left fighting Torque and XL on Tradeworld...and a deranged Booster, who is struck down by a fever that he originally dismissed as a myth. Now Team Lightyear must keep Booster under control and defeat Torque and XL so they can get Booster to Jo-Ad to cure him.


Under construction.



  • Booster: (repeated line, while suffering the effects of Bunzel Fever) BUNZEL!!!
  • XL: Why does he keep saying that?
  • Torque: Now I don't want anybody making any fatal mistakes around here.


  • There is an homage to the Big Boy Restaurant chain. When Booster attacks the giant boy robot, the robot resembles the Big Boy mascot.
  • At one point, a Hidden Mickey can be seen on XR's spatula.
  • This is the only episode to feature Gramps Munchapper.
  • XR shouting, "Good morning, 42!" at the beginning is a nod to the 1997 movie, Good Morning, Vietnam.


  • Booster is seen with and without wings in some instances after his mutation.
  • When Buzz and Mira gasp XL's name in unison after breaking into the bar on Tradeworld, their lips don't even move.
