Gordon (Gordo) Finkenhoeffer

Loves science, but is somewhat socially challenged. He's awkward, but has managed to keep his self-esteem intact. His intelligence can lead him to terrific insight or stupidity. Gordo has an internal clock that ticks a bit faster than most. At first glance, he might be called a 'nerd'.

Mrs Finkenhoeffer

Gordo's mother. She is an incredibly imaginative mom, who sometimes entertains the kids in the neighborhood by speaking in a wide range of 'accents'. She's a cool mom who has been adopted as the neighborhood mother. Gloria Finkenhoeffer has an ongoing battle with laundry.

He's older but very physically active. He knows and appreciates his life history, but loves to hear about current trends in culture. He and Gordo share an underappreciated sense of humour. His 'home' costume will be a worksuit/overalls for his handyman work.

Sam Shovel

Based on the Abbott and Costello private eye e.g. "My name is Sam Shovel, private eye. I can smell a crook. I can smell a clue. They could call me a private nose. On my desk is a picture of a thief. A top drawer thief. I caught him in a room full of drawers. Yesterday, I was sitting in my office when she came in. She was beautiful. She entered and dropped her eyes. Quickly, I picked them up. She had a turned up nose. Real turned up. Every time she sneezed, she blew her hat off."

She is the most popular cheerleader in school. She's been captain of the cheerleading squad. She loves the mall and nail polish and is always consumed with the latest fashion trends.

Tyler

Zany, high energy character. He's a game show host trapped in a kid's body. He's highly suggestible and often tries to invent incredible 'labour saving' machines. His enthusiasm can lead him into danger or add an element of outrageous encouragement. The phrase 'tightly wound' could accurately describe Tyler's demeanor.
