Ever so affectionately referred to as "Booger" or "Buffalo Butt" , Nathan Bookman is the housing project's indolent superintendent. The part of Bookman is played on the series by Johnny Brown. First appearing in the episode " The Family Business " in Season Two, Bookman, who started out as a recurring character before becoming a main character in Season 3, appears in a total of 58 episodes throughout the show's run. At first, as first depicted in Mr. Bookman's first appearance in the episode "The Family Business" in Season 2, Nathan's relationship with the Evans family and Willona starts off quite uneasily. In the episode, when James, upon the prodding of the family, gets a brainstorm idea to launch a fix-it repair shop business in the apartment, since he's a whiz at fixing appliances, and TV's and transistor radios of others who live in the building, Nathan offers resistance in of a clause in his lease prohibiting the operation of commercial activities inside rental units, but winds up using that as extortion, to get James to fix a busted TV for him as well as other repairs for free!
