Gertha Teeth is one of The Cirque du Freak's female performers. She has super strong teeth which can bite through almost anything and withstand almost anything, including hammers and chainsaws to her teeth.

Also, in the film she kisses Darren and then slaps him in the face and says "Sorry, you aren't my type."



  • "Cirque Du Freak"Gertha is one of the 'nastier' freaks in the book. She holds a certain dislike for Darren. She preforms in the Cirque, saying that nothing can break her teeth. She allows some audience members to try and break her teeth with heavy objects, such as a sledge hammer. She warns the people to not hit her gums though, saying they are quite fragile compared to her teeth. Gertha can chew through just about anything such as bike handlebars, and crow bars.

http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/ActorsS/78469-29320.jpg Gertha is much different in the movies then she is in the books. Even her personality has changed. In the books, she holds a major dislike for Darren. In the movies, she loves him(not in a romantic-way). She is a lot more emotional in the movies as well. For example, there's a scene where Gertha is crying because she claims "she is not an elephant that flies in space" as everyone else, Darren comforts her. There is no such scene in the book.

Kristen Schaal plays this character in the movie.
