The information of the Get-Along-Gang members, Mr. Hoofnagel, and Officer Growler and all voice credits were given to me by Arthur Yee. The profiles for Catchum and Leland are my own. All of these characters will appear in my fanfiction.
Originally from the 1991 Disney cartoon "Darkwing Duck," welcome Gosalyn Mallard to the Get Along Gang! I used her in my fanfiction "Lucky Thirteen." DWD is a favorite cartoon of mine, and I had been using Gosalyn and the GAG kids in the fanfic on my other page. I'm a crossover fiend, and I just can't quit cold turkey.
Gosalyn Mallard: The newest member of the Get Along Gang. Originally from St. Canard, she moved to Green Meadow with her father, Drake, former crime fighter Darkwing Duck (but only Gosalyn knows this). She's a tomboy, much more so than Bernice. Likes skateboarding and sports. Catchum is somewhat afraid of her. Gosalyn sometimes clashes with Montgomery when it comes to figuring out what to do in a jam. Montgomery would try to reason, Gosalyn would rather use action than words.
VOICE: (from the "Darkwing Duck" cartoon) Christine Cavanaugh
The next set of profiles were submitted by Arthur Yee. He told me that these were the offical "American Greetings" descriptions. AG is in quotes, Arthur's comments are after them.
Montgomery "Good News" Moose:
"'Good News' is the unofficial leader of the Get Along
Gang because of his good nature and his ability to
always do the best he can. Maybe not the fastest
thinker, 'Good News' is the most thorough one. He is
also very athletic and is good at most sports- except
those which his size makes it hard for him."
Like to tinker with gadgets and scientific
experiments. Tallest member. Awkward at times. Has
an uncle who is a film director. Best buddies with
Nelvana end credit appearance- Dancing with his roller
"Dotty's full of vim, vigor, and vitality with enough
energy to fill a football stadium. She's a
cheerleader through and through and is a strong
supporter of the gang and all of its activities. She
is also a 'take charge' person; and whenever the gang
has trouble deciding what to do, Dotty's the one who
jumps in and suggests a plan of action. The other
kids in the gang often come to her for advice or help
when they are in trouble."

cousin Wilton. Her grandmother has a good cookie
Nelvana end credit appearance- Leading the gang in a
cheer and waving her pom-poms.
"Zipper is another athlete of the gang. That's just
one of the many areas in which he competes with
Montgomery 'Good News' Moose. But Zipper really
prefers to take part in sports where the only
competition is himself. That's one reason he likes
running so much. Because he's a runner, Zipper's body
is a temple, and he takes a lot of trouble to look
good. All in all, the gang thinks that Zipper is a
good guy to be around."

waterfront and moved to Green Meadow.

to Woolma; and her loyalties are to the gang and all
that it stands for."

who lives in the waterfront.

Bingo "Bet-It-All" Beaver:
"Bingo is the most innocent looking of all of the kids
in the Get Along Gang. No one would even believe that

true...Bingo's got his name because he likes to
bet...on anything and the gang has lost count of all
the times Bingo's betting has resulted in some really

gang and loves being a part of all the gang's

"Bernice may not be as daring as the other kids in the
Get Aong Gang but she still is an important member.
She sometimes is the 'lookout' for the gang if they

Flora "Forget-Me-Not" Fox:
"Although many of the residents of Green Meadon
believe Flora is timid and reserved, she is, in fact,
just the opposite. When fun and excitement are in the

looks shyly at someone, it's no wonder that she's
called 'Forget Me Not'".

should be- very prim and very proper. She's always
dressed in her very best and can stay neat and clean
while joining in the gang's good times. She just
dusts off her shoes and smoothes out her dress without
anyone knowing that she's just finished playing nine
innings in the gang's season opener. even though her

Sweets Factory and Lolly can often supply the gang
with chocolate bars, she is and always will be one of
the gang because of herself."

in the Nelvana pilot and in 2 tv cartoons.

"Rudyard came to Green Meadow as a foreign exchange
student. But he found the language and customs and
ways of Green Meadow a little strange. That, and the
fact that he was so quiet (Rudyard says that all of

hard. Then he met the gang and everything changed.
Rudyard loves jokes, even when they are on him. After
all, jokes are just good-natured friendly fun."
