Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Wiki

Title card.

This is the episode guide for the animated series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. The show's pilot premiered on August 8, 2000, as a televised film and was also released on VHS and DVD the same day. The series itself premiered October 2, 2000, and ended in January 2001; and is technically considered incomplete due to the absence of a finale and the fact that as many as six episodes may have never aired.

The guide is ordered by a release date which, unfortunately, does not always adhere to the show's continuity. For the list of episodes sorted by production number, click here.

The release date for each episode listed below is from the original airing in the United States.

The pilot, which was later on split into three episodes, first aired on August 8, 2000 on ABC as part of Disney's One Saturday Morning programming block, produced by Walt Disney Television. The series soon followed, the first episode airing two months afterwards from October 2000 to January 2001, spanning two seasons with 62 episodes in total before it was cancelled without a proper finale. Note that there are 66 production codes in total, however, and that several of them are missing (005, 012, 055, 065). This suggests that because of the show's abrupt cancellation, several episodes never aired.

The series has re-aired twice since the first time it appeared on television. The first time was during UPN's Disney's One Too and ABC's Disney's One Saturday Morning programming block from September 2002 to August 2003; the second time was on Toon Disney from September 1, 2003 to September 2007; the third time was on the Disney Channel from 2006 until 2008.

As of yet, there are no plans to release the series, beyond The Adventure Begins, on DVD.
