Brittany Shapiro Tenelli is a major character in the franchise. She is one of Cindy's best friends and Carl's female counterpart. She is often seen singing, dancing and hanging out with Cindy and Libby as a third member of their circle of friends in many episodes.
Brittany is around the same height as Cindy and Libby and she is very pretty. She has blue eyes with red-pink eyelids and blonde hair that is worn in two long pigtail braids held together by four pink hairbands on both sides. She wears a white-and-pink midriff shirt, a pink short-sleeve jacket, pink pants with white and pink waistbands, and pink Mary Jane shoes with white socks. In the movie, she wore bracelets on both of her arms.
Brittany is very ditzy, clumsy, bubbly, bouncy, sweet, innocent, perky and kind. She is one of the few characters who doesn't antagonize Jimmy in any way and she appears to admire him and his brilliance. This makes her a comic foil to the brainy Cindy and Libby 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. Brittany is deeply devoted to Nick, but of course, he can't devote himself to just one woman. 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.
