Buffalo Butt

Insulting nickname given to overweight building superintendent Nathan Bookman (Johnny Brown) by Chicago housing project tenants Willona Woods (Ja’net DuBois) and J.J. Evans (Jimmie Walker) on the sitcom GOOD TIMES/CBS/1974-79.


When Bookman’s wife threw him out of his apartment, he tried to move in with Willona who quickly refused his proposition with the remark,”Make you home where the buffalo roam!”


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins."
