Elizabeth Brooke McGuire, (more famously known as Lizzie), is the main character in the show. She is portrayed as a caring, rational and cooperative person, although her animated alter-ego displays her true feelings from time to time. As the show progresses, she undergoes various "image" changes, including becoming rebellious, disrespectful and rude in the episode "Bad Girl McGuire". Lizzie constantly gets into arguments with her younger brother, Matt, but is well-aware of what is right and wrong.

Early LifeEdit

As a young child, Lizzie took swimming lessons with Miranda.[1]

When she was six, Lizzie disappeared in the mall.[2] Once, Lizzie slept over Kate's house and forgot to bring her stuffed pig with her. Jo had to drop him off.[2]

When she was seven, she wanted to be a veterinarian, and pretended she was a horse.[1]

Personality Edit

Lizzie is a sweet, honest teenage girl, who always knows when to do the right thing. She sticks up for her friends, but sometimes she needs reminding to as shown in some episodes. She is very kind and is even nice to her enemies, such as Kate Sanders. All Lizzie wants to do is get by life one step at a time. She is always trying to impress her crushes, such as Ethan Craft. She often has the urge to try to become part of the "popular crowd", as exemplified by her "arch enemy" (and former friend) Kate. Sometimes when she does something that gets her temporarily popular she decides that this sort of life is not for her and gives it up, as shown during the time she becomes a teen model and the time she dated a celebrity. Lizzie is allergic to oyster sauce.

She once said that she hates Matt so much that she believed that she is allergic to him. As a running gag, Lizzie seems to have a crush on her friend Gordo. She even kissed him twice.

Miranda Sanchez is her other best friend. Lizzie has known her for a long time and will do absolutely ANYTHING FOR HER.

Kate use to be Lizzie and Miranda's best friend until she became popular. They renewed the friendship in the movie.

Lizzie wore braces for a short time in sixth grade.[3]

Lizzie is allergic to strawberry ice cream.[4]

Lizzie has a stuffed pig named Mr. Snuggles.[2]

Lizzie has clear ideas for her future. She wants to live in a nice place, travel a lot, and have time for her twin children.[1]

Lizzie's aptitude test suggests a career as a cosmetologist.[1]

Lizzie enjoys making candles.[5]

Lizzie is the only member of the McGuire family who can work Picture-in-Picture on the television.[5]

Lizzie usually sleeps until noon on the weekends.[5]

As a thirteen-year-old, Lizzie looks forward to going on a real date, learning to drive, and dying her hair.[5]
