His son Coop Burtonburger often causes trouble without Burt knowing that it's the cat.
His daughter, Millie manages to manipulate him into getting what she wants. He loves both of them dearly, however.
What happened to Coop and Millie's mother is unknown.
Several episodes show him as a child during flashbacks.
He may be season 1 is 37 years old and season 2 is 38 years old, source needed.
Burt Burtonburger grew up in Bootsville, living next door to Old Lady Munson. It would appear that Burt has lived his whole life in the same house, which he may have inherited from his parents at some point. During summer, Burt enjoyed playing with his Balsa Wood plane, the "Burtonburger Special"; which he tragically lost one day after it collided with a passing bird, sending it hurtling into Mrs. Munson's yard. Burt gave up on ever seeing his plane again, until years later it was retrieved by Coop for one final flight during Search and De-Toy.
Burt also had a sister that his children call Aunt Beatrix. She may be his little or younger sister, the source needed to verify.
Little is known of Burt's adolescence, but he presumably met the woman who became Coop's mom and had Coop. When Millie was born some years later, it is not clear whether it was to the same or a different woman. It is not clear whether Burt was married before or not.
It is not said what happened to their mother(s?). Though divorce or death during childbirth is both highly possible. But nothing is said in the actual series, nor implied.
Burt presently lives in Bootsville with Coop, Millie, and Mr. Kat, where he manages the "House of Swap". He has an active role in the community, as well as his children's lives. Often acting as a mediator during the routine disputes within the household and neighborhood. He makes time for both Millie and Coop, watching doll shows with Millie or playing catch with Coop, he always tries to keep the peace between them. Which unfortunately is not working so well since Coop keeps attacking Millie's "innocent" kitty.
Since growing up, he has found new passions in restoring antiques, making vegetable smoothies and raising his kids.
In King of the Pipsqueaks his left shoulder is strong enough to hold Coop's entire weight dangling from a locked arm held about 45 degrees above parallel with the ground. His right arm is strong enough to hold Dennis' entire weight with his upper arm about 45 degrees below parallel from the ground with slightly more than a 90-degree bend in his elbow.
In Kat of Diamonds his anterior deltoids are strong enough to hold Millie's entire weight with locked arms parallel to the ground.
In The Kat Went Back Part 2 he and Chubby Cheeks are flexible enough to do the -inverted tarantula- with some strain. It is a backbend where the head is brought through the legs and the neck is hyper-extended enough so that the top of the head is facing upward again. It appears to be an advanced version of the Inverted Bow yoga posture.
- "Ahhh, nothing like a fresh paper in the morning" - Burt Burtonburger
Burt comes across as a cheerful and optimistic man, with a positive outlook on life. He can be heard humming or whistling whilst doing chores, or even singing in the shower. Even as an adult he still retains aspects of his childhood, such as his interest in model planes/helicopters and robots. He also enjoys spending time in his shed, fixing junk or old items of value, building floats and even dancing in a hoedown; yet despite his playfulness, he is also a responsible father, laying down discipline when necessary.
He has also shown an interest in ancient history.
His hairstyle looks a lot like Coop's only smaller and darker; he also wears eyeglasses.
He wears a polo-like shirt with a white stripe. He always wears brown pants and black shoes.
Family and Friends
- "That's my boy!"- Burt Burtonburger
Burt is especially close to his son, as they share common interests such as sport, building treehouses, or playing with toys and magic kits. Burt considers Coop to be his buddy, often sharing his thoughts and past experiences about his everyday life, as well as trying his best to coach his son away from trouble. Even though Coop tries his best to follow his father's directions, He seems to fail to do so thanks to Kat.
He also helps his son with his homework and is generally supportive of Coop's interests and ideas, such as building a Tree Fort, a rocket, camping in the backyard, or anything else his son might get up to, as long as it's not too extreme, but when push comes to shove, Burt knows when to discipline his son. Multiple times when Kat causes trouble and Coop all too often gets the blame Burt simply sends Coop up to his room or grounds him from something, although Coop sometimes fixes his messes.
- "He'll be fine sweetie, I'm more worried about Mr. Vet" - Burt Burtonburger
Burt treats Millie like the sweet little girl she is or at least supposed to be, usually taking Millie's side during an argument, although this may be in an effort to teach Coop to take responsibilty for himself. Burt also seems to be aware of his daughter's somewhat selfish nature, occasionally commenting to himself about it.
Despite this, however, Burt is always willing to spend time with Millie or see things from her point of view, even against his better judgment.
- "Try to think of Mr. Kat as a bald younger brother...with creepy eyes and uh...rat tail" - Burt Burtonburger
Burt's first impression of Mr. Kat was less than positive, having reacted in horror at the sight of him. He quickly denied Millie's request to adopt the strange-looking creature. This soon changed after his daughter voiced her protest across the whole neighborhood (literally), to which he reluctantly agreed, stating that if they could not find Kat's owner, they would keep him.
Burt and Kat appear to coexist with relatively few mishaps, which leaves Burt to wonder why Coop and Kat can't seem to get along. He disregards his son's claims about Kat's true identity, as merely fooling around or making excuses. Burt also helps Millie to care for Kat's needs. Including food, toys, comfort and organizing any visits to the vet.
In one episode he learns of Kat being an alien when imbued with Coop's memories but forgets when he gives his memories back. He ignores the note he left himself, thinking it a trick from Coop.
- "What instrument did you play, Henry?" - Burt Burtonburger

Burt is deathly afraid of his next-door neighbour Mrs. Munson or "Old Lady Munson" as he refers to her. Having grown up alongside her, he professes to have nightmares about their past encounters, often warning Coop to steer clear of her at all costs.
- "Hey, Henry aren't you suppose to catch the fish before you cook it?" - Burt Burtonburger
Burt and Henry have a rivalrous relationship, based on opposing beliefs. They often compete with each other over things like who's better at what? They often drag their sons into their fights.
- "Let me get you a chair" - Burt Burtonburger
- "What a gentleman" - Ms. Brannigan
Burt usually annoys her during Curse of Tutankitty's Tomb and Dire Education, but during You Kat See Me they both have a lot in common while talking about Coop in her classroom, This relationship started when Burt saw the MP3 player on her desk. When Ms. Brannigan came over to his house for dinner, however, Millie thinks he likes Ms. Brannigan during dinner. In the end, Burt and Ms. Brannigan agreed to eat in a restaurant sometime.
