Georgie "Firkle" Smith
|Aliases||Little Goth, Kindergoth|
|Voiced by||Various (Nico Agnone, Sebastian Yu)|
Georgie "Firkle" Smith, the little Goth, resembles a kindergartener, and has also been referred to as "the midget". He thinks of everyone else as "conformist nazi cheerleaders", likes spiders, loss, rain and seems to enjoy pain, and was notably referred to as the most "hardcore goth" in the group when he produced a knife and threatened to murder Mysterion in assistance to the great and mighty Cthulhu. He plays the drums in the Goth Kids' band.
Despite his commitment to the Goth cause, he was later revealed to be secretly working with their rivals, the Emos, but he and Henrietta Biggle seem to have returned to normal since.

- "I like spiders, loss and rain. I'm only happy when I'm in pain." (Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers)

- "Emos suck my goth balls." (Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers)
Firkle is close with the other members of the Goth Kids, and is usually seen with the rest of them, drinking coffee and reading poetry... but he's also been sent e-mails by Ike Broflovski, implying a friendship.
Firkle is virtually never seen without the other members of the Goth Kids, and his primary allegiance almost always lies with them... but he was willing to join the Emo Kids when the end of their clique seemed inevitable.

A significant quest in the game involves courting the Goth Kids' allegiance and choosing whether to bring them to the Humans or the Elves. The player must find them behind the school, then learn to dress like them and dance like them to win their friendship. They then join the player's chosen race in the Battle at the School. Firkle is the first Goth kid to take interest in the player's proposal to join them in the game, insisting the Goths "never do anything".
Behind the Scenes
The Goths debuted in Season 7's "Raisins". Up until Season 17's "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers", Firkle was referred to only as "Little Goth" and had not been given a name in the show or internal scripts. The nickname "Kindergoth" was widely used among fans up until the character's name was revealed.
Matt and Trey stated in audio commentary that it was during production on "The Ungroundable" that they first took serious interest in the Goth Kids as characters, and that they represent a different outlook and "angle" on the school and the show's universe.
