Buzz Aldrin (born Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr., January 20, 1930) is an American astronaut, and the second person to walk on the Moon. He was the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing in history. On July 21, 1969, he set foot on the Moon, following mission commander Neil Armstrong. He is also a retired United States Air Force pilot.
Here are the shows (and a TV movie!) in which Buzz Aldrin appeared as his fictional televersion:
- "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble" (1976)
- 'Numb3rs' episode "Killer Chat" (2006)
- 'The Big Bang Theory' (2012)
- '30 Rock' episode, "The Moms" (2010)
- 'Sesame Street'
- 'The Fall Guy'
- 'Head Of The Class'
- and sadly:
- 'Punky Brewster'
(Seeing George Gaynes in a dress may have sent Aldrin over the edge. Maybe that's why he was kind of barkers in that '30 Rock' episode.....)
- 'The Simpsons' episode "Deep Space Homer" (1994)
- 'Futurama' (2011)
So here's to you, Buzz! I'd say this is one more accolade to add to your many honors, but I'll understand if you choose to ignore it......
