Tag Team is the ninth episode of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. It first aired on October 11, 2000, and is the sixteenth episode in production.


After finding out that implants have been injected into their necks, Buzz and Warp team up to trace their origins and confront whomever planted the devices. They run into the Chlorm, who claim that their reasons were for scientific purposes-to study the difference between good and evil. In the process, Buzz and Warp’s partnership is put to the test.


On Tradeworld, Buzz is pursuing Warp Darkmatter and after a lengthy chase, he prepares to arrest him but he passes out.

Buzz wakes up in the med bay where the LGMs and his superior tell him he was unresponsive for eight hours. An x-ray is done, revealing implants in Buzz's neck, which contributed to his passing out. The LGMs try to remove it but it has a defense mechanism.

As Buzz grapples Warp, he is notified by a message from Star Command of the implants he and Warp have had in their necks since the academy. Buzz then tells this news to Warp, who has his minions confirm and is told this is true. Warp insults them for not thoroughly examining him and he teams up with his old partner to discover the perpetrators.



Under construction.


  • This is one of the few times Buzz Lightyear and Warp Darkmatter team up since Warp left Star Command.
  • We learn that Warp had a small afro in a flashback.
  • Buzz's house on Capital Planet (and the other, near-identical houses in his neighborhood) is intended to resemble the House of the Future that resided in Disneyland's Tomorrowland area in the 1960s (similarly, Star Command itself resembles Space Mountain, another Tomorrowland presence).


  • When the LGMs are electrocuted by the implant's defense system, they are wearing medical gowns. When they get back up, however, they are dressed in their usual clothes. It is possible they were knocked off by the impact, but extremely unlikely.
