Oh my gar, I love your har!
  —Jessica Gordon [src]  

Jessica Gordon is a student at Jerome Horwitz Elementary School.

Appearance[]

In her only appearance in the book series, Jessica is a Caucasian girl with curly brown hair styled similarly to Heidi's. She wears a small light yellow hairbow.

She has a radically different design in the TV series. In the show, she is African-American and has darker blushes and red lipstick. She wears a pink dress with a light stripe in the middle and a lighter shirt under it. Her boots are the same color as her undershirt. She also has brown poofed-up hair with squiggly lighter lines for shines. Her design references the "mean girl" archetype.

Personality[]

As the stereotypical "mean girl" of the school, Jessica snarks at everyone she goes into, cares about her appearance more than anything, and has a large ego. She panics whenever her hair gets frizzy or out of hand and will do anything to keep its lust. Although Jessica is a fairly good friend to Sophie One, she often mistreats Other Sophie and makes her a doormat or scapegoat. She even stole Other Sophie's birthday presents while attending her birthday party. Despite being mean and vain most of the time, she can be fairly nice at times and will help out when needed.

History[]

Captain Underpants and the Big Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy - Part 1: The Night of the Nasty Nostril Nuggets[]

She and Stephanie Wycoff show how to cook frozen lasagna in a pop-up toaster for Demonstration Speech Day, but they end up causing a fire in the process.

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants[]

Jessica has a much larger role in the show, where she often engages in her own girly affairs but will often become involved in the wild antics of the show. She has her own girl posse called "The Sophies" that accompany her in almost every episode.

She becomes Messica Gorgon in "The Vexing Villainy of the Vile Vimpire" because of Melvin and his inventions. Not only does she mistreat Other Sophie for things she does a little wrong, but she also treats Captain Underpants like a baby when he's crying while trying to fight with her. She even mistreats Harold after George throws a loaf of bread in his hair.

In "The Bizarre Blitzkrieg of the Bothersome Butt-erflies", Jessica kicks George, Harold, and Melvin out of the school cafeteria when the children are hiding from the Butt-erflies. This action likely would have led to the boys being killed had it not been for Captain Underpants saving the day.

In "The Ghastly Danger of the Ghost Dentist", Gumbalina Toothington throws a ball at Jessica. Jessica sees the ball as false and tacky. Gumbalina threatens Jessica, making her feel unsure. Before she can do anything, the ball opens up into a dental cage that encases her whole body.

In "The Confounding Concoction of the Crooked Combotato", when Jessica and the other kids run from the initial rainstorm, she tries and fails to use Other Sophie as an umbrella. She tells the fourth story. In her story, Combotato and Captain Underpants (or as she calls him "Captain Underwear") wind up at Popular High. She appears with her Sophies as the popular squad and reveals that Captain Underpants and Combotato can join them if they win a rap battle. They fail to win and thus get rejected. When the real Combotato appears, Jessica is disgusted to see her clone with her that has been ruined.

Trivia[]

  • Jessica makes a rule for Sophie One and Other Sophie that they're not allowed to talk, unless they're in crowds. In one episode, when she makes Gooch one of her Sophies, her rule for no talking applies to him as well.
  • Jessica, as well as Sophie One and Other Sophie, do not appear in Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.
  • She shares her voice actress with Dressy Killman.
  • She is the only minor character, and the only girl to have a profile on Netflix.
  • She speaks with a Valley Girl accent. E.g. if she pronounces her name, it sounds like she's saying "Jessicar".
