Demonstrating the striking symmetry between calculus and \(q\)-calculus, we obtain \(q\)-analogues of the Bateman, Pasternack, Sylvester, and Cesàro polynomials. Using these, we also obtain \(q\)-analogues for some of their generating functions. Our \(q\)-generating functions are given in terms of the basic hypergeometric series \({}_4\phi_5\), \({}_5\phi_5\) \({}_4\phi_3\), \({}_3\phi_2\), \({}_2\phi_1\) and \(q\)-Pochhammer symbols. Starting with our \(q\)-generating functions, we are also able to find some new classical generating functions for the Pasternack and Bateman polynomials
