Voiced by

Portrayed by

Alphonso McAuley (film)

Bucky Miller is a member of the Junkyard Gang.

Appearance & Personality[]

Bucky acquired his nickname from his large buck teeth. He wears a yellow t-shirt, green pants, and yellow sneakers. He sports a soup bowl-style haircut. He has very poor posture, particularly when walking. It is claimed that Bill Cosby meant for him to have Spina Bifida, but an episode explaining this fact never aired.

In the original series, Bucky is second only to Russell as the shortest member of the Junkyard Gang. He is also the quietest member, and as such little is known about his private life, but he is invariably shown to be friendly and easygoing. By the time the 1984-85 episodes aired, Bucky had grown taller and his voice became deeper.

In the Junkyard Gang, Bucky plays the stovepipe organ, which consists of a discarded piano keyboard and a junked wood-burning stove and pipes.

In the film, his appearance remains the same, with the only exception that his pants were colored in a lighter green, and wears yellow and white sneakers. He is often seen arguing with Dumb Donald whenever the latter blurts out "I don't know" to whenever Bucky asks rhetorical questions until Bill cuts off their arguing.


  • Bucky is a the fastest and most flexible sport of the gang.
  • As shown in the final part of the live action movie, the man that Bucky is based on is seen with the rest of the Junk Yard Gang paying their respects to Albert Robinson's grave. 
  • In Seasons 3-8, Bucky has grown and his voice became deeper, he also plays a bigger role in the series.
  • Bucky is best friends with Mushmouth and Russell
