Watch Lizzie McGuire

Lizzie (Hilary Duff) is an ordinary teenager dealing with regular teenage issues as they come up in her day-to-day to life. Lizzie has a sarcastic yet adorable animated alter ego that announces her thoughts and feelings to the audience. Besides Duff, the series also stars Lalaine (as Miranda) and Adam Lamberg (Gordo). Miranda and Gordo are Lizzie's two best friends. Jake Thomas (Matt McGuire), Hallie Todd (Jo McGuire) and Robert Carradine (Sam McGuire) also co-star in the series.

Lizzie has a tendency to be a bit more reserved which is where toon Lizzie's comedic relief steps in. The little toon has no trouble telling it like Lizzie sees it, but is too afraid to say. Lizzie deals with most of her angst very well, leaning on her friends and occasionally her mother.

Lizzie relies on Gordo, who has been her pal since they were little, to be her sanity and her voice of reason. Gordo is an oddball, but a true friend to the end to Lizzie. Then Miranda, who is Lizzie's best friend. Miranda is always there for Lizzie and Gordo, offering advice. Miranda will stick up for her friends, no matter the cost.

Lizzie's family is a bit of an odd group, but they work well together. Her little brother Matt is an annoying brat all the time. He's constantly interfering in Lizzie's plans, and makes extra special attempts to make her life miserable. Jo, Lizzie's mom, is quirky and cute and embarrasses Lizzie more often than not she is still someone Lizzie leans on for advice, and for help with Matt and his menacing games. Then, there is Sam (Lizzie's dad). Sam is clueless almost 100 percent of the time, but he loves his kids and every once in a while he accidentally offers up some good advice!

  • Lizzie and Miranda see a show they liked when they were younger. They decied to go to a taping.They look for someone younger to go eith them so they won't be alone at a kiddy show. Matt turns them down due to his "Dirt, Stains, and Grime" mueseum. After being turned down a few times, they decide to alone anways. When they arrive, Lizzie is spotted by Kate, who the next day tells everyone about the taping.

  • After setting a new school record in gym and then beating Ethan Craft in arm-wrestling, Lizzie is invited to play touch football with the "cute guys." But after winning the game, Ethan and the guys call her a "great dude" and "a monster" while Kate insults her as a "guy-girl." This worries Lizzie so much that she makes an early-morning call to Miranda for advice. Miranda suggests she emphasize her feminine side more, which Lizzie spends the rest of the morning doing. A talk with Coach Kelly helps Lizzie see things in a different light. Afterward she tells off Kate and goes back onto the field to play with the boys again.Meanwhile, Matt isn't doing his math homework. He falls asleep and wakes up to find it all done, but he has no idea that Fredo the chimp snuck into his room and did it for him! Before the truth comes out, Jo and Sam are happy to see their son doing so well in the subject and Melina wants Matt to do her homework for her.

  • After unintentionally inviting Mr. Dig over for Dinner, Lizzie is shocked when he and her dad become buddies. Lizzie soon discovers that constantly having her teacher at her house really cramps her style.

  • Normally conservative Gordo gets an idea on how he can use a credit card for the betterment of mankind --- to finance a movie and create his own "big break".

  • When Gordo's grandmother pays a visit, Gordo discovers that she isn't the quiet, conservative Grandma he remembers.

  • The McGuire family members are all psyched about making their annual journey to Grubby Gulch, a "Wild West" theme park, after missing last year's trip. That is, all except Lizzie, who feels that she's too old for such a "lame" place. But at least she has Miranda and Gordo going with her--although neither of them realize how much they too will dislike the place or that they'll have to get up at 5:30AM for the six-hour trip there!Once they arrive at Grubby Gulch and are greeted by Grubby Longjohn himself, Mr. and Mrs. McGuire and Matt couldn't be happier, but the place is as lame and embarrassing as Lizzie had remembered it, and Gordo and Miranda agree with her. But there is one bright spot. At a concession stand, Lizzie strikes up an acquaintance with a cute boy, Cory, and Gordo meets a nice-looking girl, Clementine. They invite Lizzie and Gordo to go to the mall with them after work, and they even have a date for Miranda. But it turns out that Mr. McGuire has scored some hard-to-get t

  • Lizzie, Gordo, Miranda and Ethan Craft are playing a little basketball (and doing a lot of trash-talkin'!) when Parker McKenzie comes by to watch. After Gordo gets his last shot stuffed by Ethan, Parker comes over to talk, and it looks like she's got her eye on Gordo. He surprises Lizzie and Miranda by saying he might ask Parker out to the upcoming dance. Later at the Digital Bean, though, he's hesitating until Lizzie and Miranda encourage him to do it. When he does ask Parker, she simply tells him, "I can't." Lizzie asks her why she turned Gordo down and Parker is blunt: he's short. He might be a nice enough guy to hang out with, but she doesn't want to go out with a short guy. Gordo overhears this and is obviously devastated. He leave the Digital Bean, leaving behind his two friends, who don't feel very good, either.At school the next day, Lizzie and Miranda are still concerned. Gordo stumbles onto the scene wearing a pair of new (high-heeled) cowboy boots, claiming he's OK with wha

  • Gordo, editor of the schools "E-zine," reluctantly makes Lizzie the website's advice columnist (it was either her or the flaky faculty advisor Ms. Dew.) But she does surprisingly well in the job. After giving great advice to students like Parker McKenzie and Claire Miller, Lizzie's reputation and popularity skyrocket. But soon she gets overwhelmed with requests for help, and some of the advice she gives turns out badly, like when she suggests to Veruca that she stand up to the school bully. Now Lizzie's afraid to give help to others who have asked, like Ethan, Kate and Tudgeman. Lizzie imagines the possible bad results of her advice: Ethan cuts off all his hair, Kate joins the Peace Corps and becomes a menu selection for cannibals, and Tudge becomes a "Dr. Evil"-like villain demanding two billion dollars from President Craft (and First Lady Kate) or he will destroy the world! Lizzie's confidence is badly shaken and she's ready to quit the job, but Gordo wants her to stay on. He comprom

  • Lizzie's effort to get 11 of her pictures in the yearbook are nixed when Kate, editor of the yearbook, uses her powers to edit them out of the final layout.

  • Lizzie and Gordo are at a Christmans charity drive where the bring presents to an unlikely-looking Santa Claus.

The rest of the McGuire family are there, and they are charmed by an eccentric old man in an elf suit who calls himself Nobby Frostybump and seems to really believe he's one of Santa's elves! Lizzie is disappointed that her family is going off to dinner with Nobby instead of working on the float, but Gordo stays to help. Hours later, Lizzie comes home and is surprised by Nobby. His senior-citizens home is having plumbing problems and he will stay with the McGuires fro a few days.The next day Lizzie and Gordo are busy working on the float. Nobby gets the bad news that the plumbing in his buil

  • Kate is having a big birthday party and her mother is making her invite her whole class, including Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo. Lizzie is dead set against going until she finds out cell phones will be given out as party favors. But her mom puts the brakes on her idea of going because there will be no "acceptable chaperone" there. Miranda suggests the three of them say they are going to the mall, then sneak out to the party. Lizzie is reluctant to go along with the idea, but she does. Gordo gets his parents' permission to go, but that only frustrates him since his parents think he's such a good boy he couldn't possibly get into trouble. So he tries, rather unsuccessfully, to show he has a dangerous "dark side."When Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo arrive at Kate's house the party is ragin': loud music is pumping, Lizzie gets handed over people's heads like a stage diver in a mosh pit, and the supposed "chaperone," Kate's 18-year-old cousin Amy, is making out in the closet! None of their classma

  • Gordo has received some big news: he has the chance to skip the eighth grade and start high school immediately. When Lizzie and Miranda hear this, they strongly encourage him to do it, saying high school is so much cooler than junior high. But Gordo isn't sure about it, and when he points out that a move to high sachool will split up the trio, the girls all of a sudden have something serious to think about too. Lizzie and Miranda now decide they don't want their best friend leaving them, but they are shocked when they find Gordo cleaning out his locker the next day--he's going to high school. Miranda recovers quickly and wishes him the best, but Lizzie is clearly stunned and her alter ego Toon Lizzie urges her to say something to Gordo to try to make him stay, but she doesn't.On Gordo's first day at high school, Lizzie is still terribly troubled by his absence. Miranda is more realistic. She'll miss him too, but she knows it's what he wants and it's something that is good for him. For

  • Gordo and Miranda may be stressed out about starting the eighth grade, but Lizzie feels great about it. She's so self-confident, in fact, that she's taken on mentoring a seventh-grader named Andie, even though Kate sneers at her for associating with a "sevy." Andie seems to worship the ground that Lizzie walks on, and it appears to be a great arrangement at first. But things start to turn a little creepy when Andie starts turning into a clone of Lizzie, imitating her hair style, then dying her hair, then dressing exactly like her! What's even more unnerving to Lizzie is how much Gordo and Miranda like her--even more than the real item, it seems! Gordo is especially taken with Andie, and he actually talks about dating her!Meanwhile, Matt faces a crisis with his Wilderness Cadets group. He must earn a merit patch very soon or he will be demoted to a Bunny Cadet!

In a department store, Lizzie and Gordo are surprised to see Miranda shovel several handfuls of complimentary candy into her purse. This also draws the attention of the security guard.

But the security guard stops her and wants to check her purse. Inside he finds a brand of lipstick from the display.

Lizzie is determined to turn herself into a girl who is perfect for Ethan and with the help of Gordo, she begins a surveillance campaign to determine all of Ethan's likes and dislikes so she can make herself over for him. Meanwhile, Matt and Lanny are trying to whip up an "evil potion," but instead they come up with a great-tasting smoothie. It's so good that when they begin to sell it to neighboring kids, Matt's back yard becomes the newest hot spot in town, and soon everyone is flocking to the "Club Flamingo."Lizzie goes on her campaign for Ethan and it seems to be working: he's knocked out that all of a sudden they seem to have so much in common. She even knows how to dress like his fanta
