Death by Minions: Buster’s Tragedy

I’m doing something a little different today. Something out of the norm. My kiddos are off school for rodeo break (only us Tucsonans know what that is – Google it if you want) and I thought it would be fun to partake in a contest. A friend of mine entered The Anual Contest of Whatever over at The Evil Squirrel’s Nest. And I decided to give it a try. Basically, you must make Buster, one of ES’s cartoon characters die. And I employed the help of my girl spawn (8 yrs old) for set design and photography, and boy spawn (5 yrs old) for story writing. Here’s what they came up with.

Death by Minions: Buster’s Tragedy


Buster the possum was eating leaves and didn’t notice the minions were coming. They tied him to the train track, smashed his arms and legs, and killed him dead. Then they throwed him in the garbage. The minions left but the possum came back to life. He ran away to his little hole for safety. Then he ate some food and he lived happy.
The end.


So that’s it. Haha. I love how my 5 year old couldn’t bear the loss of Buster and brought him back to life. Too sweet. I also love how Buster is seemingly flipping us off in the afterlife. No shame in that possum’s game.

There you have it: our entry in the third annual contest of whatever. I hope you enjoyed this as much as me and my kiddos did. There’s still time to enter, but the contest ends tomorrow morning. Go here for the rules.

  1. This is great. Good luck! What an awesome mom you are.

    • Awww thanks Juliette! If there’s anything kids enjoy most, it’s killing imaginary possums. Lol. ♡ I love your contribution also by the way. Lovely Buster artwork. 🙂

  2. OMG! Is that Play Doh? That is a more realistic interpretation of Buster than even I can draw! I love this! And it’s OK that Buster came back to life… he does that for me as well. That’s how I can keep killing him off every week!

    Thanks for this great last minute entry, and best of luck!

    • Yes, Play Doh! My daughter is very detailed. Lol. Thanks for the opportunity! My kids are excited to see the results. All of the entries are fantastic. 🙂 Fun stuff!
