Eileen (aka the Birthday Girl) is a recurring villain on the series WordGirl.

Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]

Eileen is a 10-year-old girl with orange hair who wears a pink dress with light blue sleeves on both sides of the top portion of her dress; she also wears a light blue bow on her head, a purple and gold cat necklace around her neck, pink frilly socks and white shoes.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Eileen can easily be described as greedy, selfish, heartless, aggressive, self-centered, immature and sometimes cruel. Usually, she appears to be a innocent little girl to others. She does whatever it takes to acquire anything she may want by using a faux-polite manner, big eyes, and a lisping voice, along with the the statement "Today is my birthday!". Whenever she is denied something she wants, she yells, "Mine, MINE, MINE!", growing in height and turning a darker shade of green with each yell until the owner of the coveted item hands it over in fear.

Eileen thinks that every day is her birthday (hence why she is nicknamed "The Birthday Girl") and such uses the excuse as a reason to get special treatment from anyone and everyone, usually to great effect. Because she thinks every day is her birthday, she thinks every party is her birthday party, every cake is her birthday cake, etc.  She also greatly annoys Becky because of her lisp, using the "w" sound in words instead of “l” or “r”. e.g. "I wearned my wesson," "Today's my biwthday!", "What do bestest-westest fwiends do?".

In addition to using it to get what she wants, she also uses her cute charm to get herself out of trouble, as shown in "The Wrong Side of The Law."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Her powers are based on those of the Hulk, a Marvel superhero; however, unlike the Hulk, her powers are based on greed rather than anger.
  • The only way to reverse Eileen's transformation is to trick her into doing something generous instead of greed, although sometimes her greed alone can backfire on her (as seen in "Who Wants Candy?").
  • It is unknown what Eileen's last name is, if she even has one at all.
  • In her debut episode and Slumber Party Pooper, it is revealed that Eileen loves gold stars.
  • Violet was the first person ever to refer to Eileen as "Birthday Girl".
  • As seen in "The Rise of Miss Power," there is a possibility that Eileen can transform into Birthday Girl without having to do anything greedy.
  • Interestingly, as Eileen transforms into Birthday Girl, her clothes seem to show no signs of tearing apart the bigger she gets.
  • Eileen's real birthday is the same as Violet's, as revealed in "Sonny Days with a Chance of Showers". So, if she were 10 at the time, she would have been 11 by that episode.
  • Although not officially confirmed, the cat necklace that Eileen wears is possibly the thing that gives her the power to grow.
    • In ”The Birthday Girl”, Eileen shrank back to normal size after giving her kitty necklace to Violet, making this theory make some sense, though it is possible Eileen shrank due to doing an act of generosity and not because of the necklace itself.
    • It is also revealed that Eileen received the necklace from her mother, somewhat hinting she was the “original” Birthday Girl before Eileen was born.
  • In “The Wrong Side of the Law”, several pictures on the walls of Eileen’s house is a clown with orange hair, hinting this could be evidence that her father is a clown.
