Spawned a sequel TV sitcom that premiered in September 1990 on CBS, starring Kevin Meaney as Buck, who becomes guardian of the three children after their parents are killed in a car accident. Panned by critics, it didn't even finish its first season before being cancelled, after airing only 16 of 22 filmed episodes.

* GentleGiant: Sure, he's pretty scary if you're a heartless educator or a besotted party clown or a punk, but just watch the scene where Buck tries to convince Maizy she can't sleep in his bed. D'awwwwww.

Much of said hilarity comes from Buck's repeated encounters with [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Tia's boyfriend]], Bug. Buck knows Bug is just using her, and pretends to be AxCrazy for Bug's benefit. Tia decides that ThisMeansWar When not trying to save Tia from herself, Buck [[ItMakesSenseInContext cooks giant pancakes, punches out drunken clowns]] and tries to fix his on-again-off-again relationship with his old flame/employer, [[AerithAndBob Chanice]]. All this builds to a [[{{Heartwarming/Film}} Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming]] in which Buck must choose between freedom and responsibility. Macaulay Culkin's performance as Tia's little brother will remind many viewers of ''Film/HomeAlone'', and for good reason: it inspired the movie.

What do you get when you have a family emergency, and the only person available to watch the kids is John Candy? You get ''Uncle Buck''.

* {{Badass}}: Buck. Only he could threaten people with power tools and peg them with golf balls, and get away with it.
** Judging by the way Pal reacted when Buck walked over to him when he was coming onto Tia, Buck was responsible for his black eye and split lip.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Miles and Maizy, who take to Buck much more quickly than their older sister, find no end of amusement in him actually being able to talk back to her.
