Button

The family nickname of the eldest child, Paige Thatcher (Tracey Needham/Monique Lanier), on the domestic drama LIVE GOES ON/ABC/1989-93. Paige was a college dropout who returned home to live with her parents.

Note: When he was sixteen, Canadian born Aaron Chwatt, (a.k.a. “Red Buttons”) answered an advertisement for bell boy & singer at Dinty Moore’s Tavern in the Bronx. The customers at that establishment immediately began calling him “Red Buttons” because of his bellboy uniform (with 48 buttons) and his red-colored hair.
