I gave up clown college for this?
~ Mr. Wesley

Mr. Wesley is a supporting antagonist in Disney's 45th full-length animated feature film Home on the Range.

He was voiced by Steve Buscemi, who also played Randall Boggs in Monsters, Inc., Francis E. Francis in The Boss Baby, and Bucky in G-Force.


Wesley is a scrawny businessman who works in the black market. He sells the cattle that Alameda Slim steals for him. Wesley is primarily focused on business and making money. He generally doesn't have any patience for Slim's "unique" ways of stealing cattle and he always tries to get jobs done in a timely fashion. He is also shown to dislike the fact that Slim addresses him as "Mr. Weasley", though he only tolerates it out of fear, as Wesley does not want to be on the end of Slim's wrath.


Wesley first appears towards the end of the film when Alameda Slim and the Willie Brothers return to their hideout in the old mines to buy the herds of cattle that they have stolen.

He has a profitable arrangement with Slim, whom he mistakenly refers to Mr. Wesley as "Mr. Weasley." Slim steals cows with his yodeling, Wesley buys them, and Slim uses the ill-gotten money to buy the now-bankrupt farm he stole the cows from. Wesley tries to be punctual and is shown to get very angry when there are any delays.

He also reveals that he gave up clown college in a surprised tone after noticing the chaos on the mine shaft. Eventually, Wesley gets beaten up by Maggie, Mrs. Calloway, Grace, Lucky Jack and Buck, and they lock him in a train cart along with Rico and the Willies, who are seen beaten up as well.

It is unknown what has happened to Wesley afterwards, but it is presumed that he, the Willie Brothers and Rico, end up being arrested following Slim's arrest for their crimes; however, if it is true that they were never found, they possibly starved to death while being locked in the train cart.
