In a show full of selfish, mean-spirited robots, GIR is a breath of fresh air. He is child-like and free-spirited, displaying a love for Earth that is atypical of most SIR units. Despite being a "mongoose-dog" with a zipper that doubles as a tail and a head that can be pulled over like a hood, GIR is inexplicably good at disguising himself on Earth and has a penchant for befriending humans, particularly teenage females. He has also been known to bail Zim out of trouble, such as saving him from alien fanatics in "Attack of the Saucer Morons".
