Buzz Lightyear is a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. Buzz is a space ranger hero according to the movies and action figure in the Toy Story series. Along with Woody, he is the co-leader of Andy's Room. He also appeared in the movie Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins and the television series spin-off Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, as well as the two film sequels. His often repeated catchphrase is "To infinity ... and beyond!" Tim Allen voiced the character in the Toy Story film trilogy and the Buzz Lightyear movie, while Patrick Warburton provided Buzz's voice for the TV series, and Pat Fraley voiced him for the video games and the attractions in Disney Parks.
Buzz Lightyear's name was inspired by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin; the second person to walk on the Moon. Aldrin acknowledged the tribute when he pulled a Buzz Lightyear doll out during a speech at NASA, to rapturous cheers; a clip of this can be found on the Toy Story 10th Anniversary DVD. Aldrin did not, however, receive any endorsement fees for the use of his first name.
Regarding the design of Lightyear, his creator, John Lasseter, is on record as saying he wanted to create an action figure in the line of G.I. Joe for Toy Story and decided upon a spaceman figure. He attributes his design to the influence of Apollo astronauts, in particular their clear helmets, skullcaps, communication devices and white suits
The purple and lime green color scheme were his wife's and his own favorite colours respectively. The wholesome good looks of television actor Ed Kemmer are also believed to be a prototype for Lightyear. Kemmer played Commander Buzz Corry in Space Patrol, one of the first science-fiction series on US TV.

Big deal, I'm a toy? I've never been destroyed,
I escaped a house with a mental kid, I didn't need the cowboy.
Cos he's just as good as me, he's got his own work to do,
Wow, you landed on rock, I can do that too.
Little Bo Peep lost her sheep, she didn't know where they were,
So I did the dead for her, then let her take my sperm-
In sex, I'm complex, you see, you're just a me wanna be,
You're dead now anyway, i'm buzzing in the groovy movies!
Come in Star Command, we've got a douchebag-
Who thinks just because he's a human, he can brag to me, catastrophe.
Oh, we'll see who he'll be when he stepped a step too far,
And after I've whooped his ass on the farest far out star.
Take your flag and shove it up your ass,
When you're looking at me, you're looking at class.
I've got a reason to be scared, I'm only have a foot long,
I've won this fair and square, to infinity and beyond!
