— Gooba Gooch in Substitute Teacher
Owner of Junk N' Stuff (formerly)
Gooba Gooch is a recurring character in Season 1 of Henry Danger. He was formerly the cashier at Junk N' Stuff. Gooch would alert Captain Man (and Kid Danger) of crimes happening in Swellview and acted as a lookout for the Man Cave. From Season 3 onward, his duties have been taken over by Jasper Dunlop.
He is portrayed by Duncan Bravo.
Description & Personality
Gooch has grey hair and wears Indian attire of varying colors. He is mysterious, but in a light-hearted way; a notable example is how he first communicates with Henry when he tells him to go to the back and take the elevator.
In The Danger Begins, Gooch is first shown in his desk at Junk 'N' Stuff feeding his plant Omar some juice. Then, he spots a boy coming in his store. The boy introduces himself as Henry Hart, who says he's here about the job. Communicating in a mysterious way, he tells Henry to go to the back and take the elevator down, saying no more after that.
