First Appearance:


Portrayed By:

Adam Lamberg

David "Gordo" Gordon is one of the main characters of Lizzie McGuire. He is the best friend of both Lizzie and Miranda. He usually offers sarcasm and good advice. He is portrayed as being very intelligent, practical and he is a "straight A" student. He has always had a crush on Lizzie.


Gordo is the archetype of the nonconformist, as her prefers to be different from everybody else and follows his own path. 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 brought him to his senses with Matt's help. It is revealed that he is Jewish and had a bar mitzvah. Gordo is always loyal to his friends, and his quick thinking often gets them out of trouble.

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


Lizzie McGuire

Gordo is one of Lizzie's best friends and has been since they were 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, Gordo was pulled into a lip-lock with Lizzie after she realises what a big mistake she has made. In the episode "Dear Lizzie" it is revealed that Gordo has a crush on Lizzie.

Miranda Sanchez

Miranda is also one of Gordo's best friends. In the show, Miranda and Gordo do have their own sub-plots and interactions together without Lizzie, and they even hang out and seek advice from each other when Lizzie is not around.

Gordo and Miranda both have said before that they got each other's backs and are always supportive of each other's decisions. Both of them like to tease and bicker with each other but they get along pretty well.

They also were paired up together for a lot of the projects and activities in school such as in gym class (dance episode) and also social studies project (on Mexico and they have to make tamales).


Claire Miller

Gordo is shown to have a crush on her.


Brooke was Gordo's girlfriend in the episode "Gordo and the Girl." Lizzie is shocked when she sees them two kissing at the place they always hang out. It is possible that she was his first kiss. Gordo spends more time with his new girlfriend than his friends but they break up in the end of the episode.
