This article is about the Fireside Girl from Phineas and Ferb. For the Recess character, see Gretchen Grundler.

Gretchen[3] is a supporting deuteragonist of Phineas and Ferb, and one of the Fireside Girls Troop 46231 in Danville.

Biography

She was one of the Ferbettes in Phineas and the Ferb-Tones (“Flop Starz”, “Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown”). She also helped Phineas Flynn win the Swamp Oil 500. Isabella Garcia-Shapiro thanked her for a job well done and complimented her on adding the bow to the Team Phineas Race car during the pit-stop (“The Fast and the Phineas”). She also sings in S’Winter (“S'Winter”). In a deep voice, she counts down the blastoff of Phineas and Ferb’s rocket when they visit their star (“Out to Launch”). She appears to have a large IQ, having to repeat her statements due to the others not understanding what she had said, and saying words that no one else in the room knows (“Bubble Boys”, “Isabella and the Temple of Sap”).

Appearance

Gretchen reading

Gretchen has short auburn hair, blue eyes with glasses, and wears her uniform with a large collar, bell-shaped sleeves, and a red belt around her skirt, and low-top shoes, and is slender. In winter, however, she ties her hair into a mid-length ponytail with red elastic, and wears an orange and red long-sleeved shirt with brown pants, and orange slip-on shoes.

Relationships

GretchenRemindingIsabella

Gretchen helping Isabella remember what they need to do.

Gretchen and Isabella appear to be very good friends. In the instances where Isabella does not actually listen to what Phineas is saying to her due to drifting off into fantasies, Gretchen repeats it for her convenience. (“Isabella and the Temple of Sap”)

The Other Fireside Girls

Gretchen along with the other Fireside Girls gladly help out with Phineas’s and Ferb’s Big Ideas. The other Fireside Girls sometimes have difficulty understanding Gretchen first time stating something so Gretchen repeats it in a different way to get her statement across. (“Bubble Boys”)

Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher

Gretchen frequently participates in their Big Ideas. Phineas and Ferb will sometimes help them get a specific patch(es). Other than this, nothing is currently known about Gretchen’s relationships with the two.

Trivia

  • Gretchen is the first of the Fireside Girls (besides Isabella) to have a speaking role in the series. Early on in the episode "The Fast and the Phineas", she is the girl who asks the question about Phineas’s racecar being electronically fuel injected; however, she is not given a name at this point. Her name comes later when Isabella compliments her on the bow she ties on the car, but it is unknown which Fireside Girl she is since Isabella was speaking to the group. The last piece to the puzzle is that Ariel Winter is credited as Gretchen in the end credits for the episode. The episode’s print novelization in Speed Demons further confirms this by way of the narration explicitly stating that it is Gretchen who asks the question.
  • She and Katie are the only Fireside Girls who appeared in the Phineas and Ferb Nintendo DS game.
  • In “Isabella and the Temple of Sap,” she appeared to take the most prominent role, having the most spoken lines of dialogue.
  • She may be a reference of Velma from Scooby-Doo, whom she resembles in several ways, and may be the girl using the catchphrase “Jinkies” off-screen in that episode.
    • She may also be a reference to Marcie from the Peanuts comic strips and TV specials. Gretchen often calls Isabella ‘Chief’ much like the way Marcie calls Peppermint Patty “Sir.”
  • She shares a few traits with an earlier character from Disney with the same name, Gretchen Grundler from Recess. Both girls have red hair and glasses, and both are very kind and smart.
  • She is the only Fireside girl, along with Katie and Milly, to appear in “Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever!
  • She was the only Fireside Girl who didn’t appear in “Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!”, but appeared for a cameo in “A Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas.”
  • She is the only Fireside Girl (besides Isabella) to have a part of the “Too Young” line (“Isabella and the Temple of Sap”) and the only female (besides Candace) to have the “Out, peace!” line (“Monster from the Id”).
  • In “The Ballad of Badbeard”, she appears to get seasick.
  • Gretchen appears to be the shortest of the main Fireside Girls (All episodes that all the Fireside Girls are in) and the lightest as Adyson Sweetwater were able to carry her weight while she was reading “The Fireside Girls Book of Dendrology” (a large, heavy book) with no problems in “Isabella and the Temple of Sap.”
  • In “Tri-Stone Area,” she is seen without her glasses as a cavegirl while singing “Zubada.”
  • Dan Povenmire revealed that she is “a dead-on caricature” of character designer Greg Guler’s daughter.
  • In “Bee Story” she seemed to have gotten annoyed with Katie’s buzzing when asking her what was she doing.
  • Jump Right In is the only song that Gretchen was the lead singer. (“Night of the Living Pharmacists”)
