Episode Summary

EDIT
Buster's League of Champions (Virginia Beach, Virginia)
AIRED:
Unhappy with the newest movie featuring his favorite character, Bionic Bunny, Buster decides to come up with some suggestions of his own for the next one. He decides to do this in the form of a trailer, with the help of some kids in Virginia Beach who live in Trailer City. He assembles them into his very own League of Champions and gets a local church leader to help out with a puppet villain. Along the way, he makes a surprising discovery as to who exactly was responsible for one of the cheesy songs in the awful Bionic Bunny film.moreless

    I mean to leave so close to were the show was shot! That to me is awesome. I also think wow they live in a small place for so many people. I had heard of the trailer park that the kids live in. Buster got some ghetto experience. Shooting' hoops and all. There was a story in my newspaper saying' Postcards from Bust was coming our way. They told us when to watch it so I did. I didn't know the people but Buster got to know them. I don't live that close but we get the same paper. That is so cool in my opinion.moreless

    • Bionic Bunny is a major part of the whole Arthur / Postcards from Buster "culture."

He was featured in The Bionic Bunny Show, which is a Reading Rainbow book.
