He is a small African-American boy with freckles and black hair. He is seen wearing a purple shirt with dark green pants and a green hat.
While not unkind, Gordy is unique at Third Street and seems to be the only person at the school who doesn't like T.J. However, he also admits he doesn't actually have a "reason" to not like T.J, claiming he doesn't need one, much to T.J.'s annoyance. He did say at the beginning of the episode to T.J.'s friends, "T.J. Detweiller isn't as popular as he thinks," possibly meaning he is jealous of him because he has loads of friends and lots of people like him. This dislike held up even after T.J. took him on a trip around the school when they were supposed to be in detention, which Gordy admitted to enjoying.
Gordy has some nerdy traits. He enjoys playing handball, amongst others.
