Brittany Shapiro Tenelli is a major character in the franchise.
Brittany is a very pretty girl with grayish-blue eyes with red-pink eyeshadow and blonde hair that is worn in two long pigtail braids held together by four pink holders on both sides. She wears a midriff-baring white and pink shirt, exposing her stomach, a pink short-sleeve jacket, pink pants with white and pink waistbands and pink Mary Jane shoes with white socks. In Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, she wore gold and white bracelets on both of her arms, one of each color on each arm.
Brittany is a very kind, sweet, ditzy, clumsy, bubbly, bouncy, innocent and perky girl who is one of the few characters that doesn't antagonize Jimmy Neutron in any way and she appears to admire him and his brilliance. This makes her a comic foil to the brainy Cindy Vortex and Libby Folfax and one of Jimmy's very few fans. She is very happy-go-lucky and with her head in the clouds, she's often confused in a situation.
Brittany is also illiterate, meaning she doesn't know how to read or write, so she either has her friends do it for her or pretends that can read. She’s very passionate about the people in her life, and falls to pieces rather easily.
Brittany often has low self confidence and sometimes gets picked on by Cindy and Libby when she tries to get involved with their escapades, but they still love Brittany and the three of them are very close.
