Upside-Down Girl

The Upside-Down Girl is a background character in the Recess series.

Personality and Appearance

The Upside-Down Girl has no defined personality. However, it has been confirmed that she has become impervious to nausea from the many times she hung from her bar. It is possible that she is violent when angry as seen when she warned T.J. that he'd be sorry if she got off her bar. She is almost always seen hanging upside down, the only time she is seen right side up is in "The Game" where said game manages to enamour her to that point.

As a result of always hanging upside down, her blond pigtails always stick up, even on the rare occasion that she is right side up. She wears a one piece white outer-garment with short sleeves and pant legs, and a pink dress over it with the skirt always stuck up.


  • Upside Down Girl has a counterpart at 98th Street School who is African American.
  • Her voice actress is Francesca Smith, who also played the part of Helga Pataki in Nickelodeon's Hey Arnold. The two characters have similar clothes and hairstyles, and one could also argue, violent disposition.
  • She keeps her money and other stuff in her socks, so they don't fall off.
