Personality

Gus is a good natured, if occasionally naive, boy, as his recent attendance at Third Street made him aware of the school's traditions such as the kindergarten derby. He is also a master at dodgeball and has never been beaten under a pseudonym of El Diablo (Spanish for "The devil"). During his tenure at an old school he attended, he gave up on dodgeball after an incident in which he accidently threw a ball at a small boy, leaving the boy too afraid to go the playground.

Gus often calls his Dad "Sir". Gus sometimes is paranoid and usually power goes to his head. In "King Gus" he became King Of The Playground and he began bossing the other children around and creating a 'cookie tax'. In "Germ Warfare" he wanted to get rid of germs and disinfect the world, thinking that all germs are evil, which put him in conflict with Mikey, who treated germs as friends.

Appearance

Gus is slender and is the shortest of the group. He has a short crop of blond hair. He is usually dressed in a green shirt, dark green pants, brown shoes. He also wears grey square-shaped glasses.

Trivia

  • A running gag is that Gus always goes to the bathroom at the wrong time.
  • Unlike the other main characters, Gus debuts in the second episode.
  • It is likely that his middle name, Patton, was named for an M60 Patton tank his father drove since he is in the military. The tank itself is named after General George S. Patton, the general best known for his leadership while commanding corps and armies as a general during World War II. .
  • Gus was absent in the pilot episode, but was seen in the earliest drawings of the cast. It's implied that he was added to the cast, dropped, and was added back in.
  • In early recordings and comics of the German dub, Gus was named Paul. This was later corrected.
  • Gus has a slightly different character design than the rest of the main six, as he has black dots for eyes rather than white circles with pupils like the others. Library Kid, Becky Benson, and Scribe Kid use similar designs.
  • Gus has the third most number of episodes focused on him, with Mikey in second and T.J. in first.
  • In the first recording for "The New Kid ", Gus was voiced by Ryan O'Donohue . After it was recorded, Courtland Mead dubbed over his lines.
  • In certain episodes, Gus's last name is spelt "Griswold".
  • Due to his dad being in the military, Gus can idenitfy any plane/military vehicles when he sees it.
  • Gus has been to 12 schools in the last 6 years of his life.
  • Gus has a pet snake named Herbert.
  • Gus was only the character of the recess gang to not be zapped by lax.
