Show Summary

"Get inside her head!" say the advertisements and you can do that when you watch this Disney Channel family comedy, the most successful of their "Zoog Weekendz" shows. It's all about the ordinary and not-so-ordinary adventures of a junior high student and her two best friends as they try to deal with the ups and downs of school, popularity, boys, parents, a bratty little brother--just life in general. And if Lizzie leaves anything unsaid, you can bet that her cartoon alter ego will say it for her!

Lizzie McGuire merchandise Applause is offering a variety of Lizzie items for sale, including 8" and 12" dolls, a CD case, a journal, a cell phone case, assorted picture frames and a mini-photo album/keychain. When you get to the site, click on "Applause rolls out Lizzie McGuire."

Biographies of Main Characters Lizzie McGuire- The ditzy and loveable Lizzie who's trying to make it through middle school while dealing with a crush on the cute guy in school, her ex-best friend turned popular cheerleader, a bratty brother and of course all the angst that comes with being a teenager.

David "Gordo" Gordon- Friends with Lizzie since she was very little, Gordo is the voice of reason within the group. This amateur filmmaker may be smart and a little different to everyone else in school, but he is a true and loyal friend, always there for Lizzie and Miranda.

Miranda Sanchez- Lizzie's best friend, Miranda is the type of person who's always there to give great advice to Lizzie and Gordo, simply telling it like it is. She isn't afraid to stick up for her friends and is always there with them through the perils of middle school. Matt McGuire- Lizzie's bratty little brother knows how to annoy just about anyone. Whether it's playing a prank on someone or just up to no good it's certain that Matt will be behind it. It is his mission to make Lizzie's life far from pleasant. Jo McGuire- Lizzie's mom may be a bit embarrassing at times, but she sure knows how to deal with any situation thrown at her. Whether it's counseling Lizzie through a difficult moment in life or seeing what Matt is up to, Jo is ready to tackle anything.

Sam McGuire- Being the father of Lizzie and Matt isn't an easy thing, especially when he has no idea what is going on. Though Sam can be a little clueless he tires his best with his kids, sometimes even surprising them with a piece of good advice.

Toon Lizzie- Lizzie's alter ego, Toon Lizzie tells us what Lizzie is really thinking but is to afraid to say. Her sassy and sharp-tongued attitude is a contrast to everything Lizzie isn't. If only Lizzie was brave to tell it like Toon Lizzie, things would be very interesting.

The extended version has these lines: If you only knew all of the notions in my head you'd understand why some days I can't get out of bed Are we winning or losing it's just so confusing but we get one step closer each and every day till we figure it out on the way It might surprise you the stuff we're wise to the things that we can open up our eyes to
