Early Life[]

His birthday is July 28.

Gordo's parents are both psychiatrists.[5]

In kindergarten, he threw up on the Magic Circle story rug.[6]

While in third grade, Gordo played the part of the Question Mark in the grammar pageant.[7]

While in the sixth grade, his paper airplane in the Science Olympics struck Mr. Lang, a teacher, in the eye.[8]


Gordo is the archetype of the nonconformist, as he prefers to be different from everybody else and follow his own path.[2]

He likes to film videos and wants to be a movie director, like Steven Spielberg.

He once became obsessed with the game “Dwarflord” but Lizzie and Miranda bring him to his senses with Matt’s help.

Gordo is always loyal to his friends, and his quick thinking often gets them out of trouble.

He does not understand all the "girly" stuff that Miranda and Lizzie do.

Gordo is sarcastic, caring and intelligent; he can also be goofy and witty.

Gordo's aptitude test suggested a career as a blackjack dealer.[6]

Gordo is a fan of Tyra Banks.[9]

Gordo has excellent hand-eye coordination, as evidenced by his agility with hacky sack[10] and unicycles.[2]

Gordo likes to watch foreign films.[2]

Gordo has an aunt who gave him model planes for his birthday.[2] He also may—or may not—have an aunt who lives in Rangoon.[2]

Gordo doesn't like dancing.[2]

Gordo likes "The Mummy" movie.[7] Whether this is the original Universal movie, its 1999 remake, or the Hammer Studios version is unclear.

Gordo's phone number is 555-0199.[10]

Relationships with other characters[]

Lizzie McGuire[]

Gordo is one of Lizzie's best friends and has been since she was one day old. In the episode "The Untitled Stan Jenson Project" it was revealed that Lizzie had a crush on him in the fourth grade.

In The Lizzie McGuire Movie, Lizzie kisses Gordo after she realizes what a big mistake she has made. In the Season 2 episode "Dear Lizzie" it is revealed that Gordo has a crush on Lizzie.

Miranda Sanchez[]

Miranda is also one of Gordo's best friends. They've known each other for a long time. Gordo likes to tease Miranda, like when Matt has a crush on her. Although many people ship Lizzie/Gordo, a few ship Miranda/Gordo.


Brooke Baker[]

Brooke was Gordo's first girlfriend and was introduced in the episode "Gordo and the Girl". Lizzie is shocked when she sees the two kissing at the Digital Bean, a place where Miranda, Lizzie, and Gordo, always hang out. It is possible that Brooke was his first kiss.

Gordo spends more time with his new girlfriend than his friends. Gordo breaks up with Brooke at the end of the episode because he didn't like all the responsibility included in being a boyfriend.

Gordo is also known to have a crush on Lizzie's cousin Heather.[11]
