Buzz McCallister is the tertiary antagonist of Home Alone and is the big brother of Kevin.


Buzz McCallister is the older brother of Kevin McCallister in Home Alone. Buzz is portrayed as an immature, not-so-smart teenager who has nothing better to do but pick on his brother, Kevin. Although Buzz has underestimated Kevin more than once, he is quite protective when it comes to his siblings.

Biography Edit

Home Alone Edit

It is implied that Buzz is interested in girls when he asks whether or not French girls shave under their arms. When Kevin comes into the room, Buzz asks, "Don't you know how to knock, phlegm-wad?"

After rudely refusing Kevin's request to sleep in his room (as Kevin does not want to sleep in the hide-a-bed with Fuller), Buzz tells his cousin Rod and Kevin about Old Man Marley, and also says that he is the rumored South Bend Shovel Slayer and who murdered his whole family in 1958 and uses his salt to turn victims to mummies.

During dinner, Buzz decides to dig in and take upon a whole cheese pizza that he and Kevin were actually supposed to split. This causes Kevin to get upset with Buzz over the fact that he didn't save any slices for Kevin. After finding this out, Kevin tackles Buzz towards the kitchen island, causing milk to spill towards the entire family's airline tickets. As a result, Kevin is sent to the third floor for the night by his mother, Kate.

When the family is at Uncle Rob's apartment, Buzz's sister, Megan remarks that he isn't worried about Kevin being home alone, and Buzz replies "No, for three reasons. A. I'm not that lucky, 2. We have smoke detectors, and D. We live in the most boring street in the United States of America, where nothing even remotely dangerous will ever happen, period", which shows how wrong he is about Kevin.

At the end of the movie, we notice that Buzz slightly cares more for Kevin again to a certain extent and is very faithful to him since he was able to stay home alone for several days. He even says that Kevin cannot tie his shoes upon hearing that Kevin had gone shopping and had gotten some milk, eggs and (in a deleted scene) fabric softener. When the family splits up to go to other rooms in the house, Buzz heads towards his room after returning home and having a moment of reconciliation with Kevin. While Kevin is standing at the window watching Marley go to his house with his family, he hears Buzz call "Kevin, what did you do to my room?". Kevin runs off (probably to Buzz's room or somewhere else in the house) as the film ends.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New YorkEdit

At the school's Christmas concert, Buzz senses the opportunity for another trick. When Kevin is doing his solo, Buzz waits for the right moment to borrow Fuller's candles; Fuller hands them to him and sticks them behind Kevin's ears, making them glow, and everyone on the audience (including Uncle Frank) bursts into laughter, except for the piano lady, the conductor, their mother, Kate, their dad, Peter, and Aunt Leslie. Kevin punches him and he falls, causing the entire performance to be ruined

That night, Buzz apologizes to the whole family and to Kevin and the rest of the family, and they clap for him; however, he cheapshots Kevin by saying "Beat that you little trout sniffer!" And Kevin leaves the room angry with the family for believing Buzz and not him.

Later, when they are in Florida, Kate gets the call from the police that Kevin is in New York, and Buzz gets ready to pack up and go to New York along with the other McCallisters.

On Christmas morning, a truckload of gifts comes to the Plaza as a reward for Kevin's foiling Harry and Marv's attempt to rob Duncan's Toy Chest, and Buzz realizes that had it not been for Kevin getting on the wrong flight, they would not be in the suite with the Christmas tree and the gifts in the first place. He tells the family this before allowing Kevin to open the first present. This causes them to clap again, this time for both him and Kevin.

When Buzz receives the bill for Kevin's original stay at the Plaza Hotel, he gives Cedric, the bellhop, a wad of pink chewing gum as a tip (which makes Cedric remark on how nice the family is). Buzz then looks over the bill, smiles upon seeing the total on the last page and says "Merry Christmas, indeed" before calling out "Oh, Dad!"

Non-canon appearancesEdit

Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House Edit

In this movie, Buzz is shown to have curly hair and looks much smaller than he did in the first 2 films.

Buzz lives with his mom, Megan and Kevin, and his parents have divorced. Buzz would rather go to the movies with his friends instead of watching Kevin while his mom goes out.



  • An adult Buzz was originally going to feature in Home Alone 5 as a gamer who chatted to Finn Baxter online. But this was avoided in order to keep the film more standalone and the role was given to a new character named Simon.
