Gort is a character in Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge. He's the junkman in Halloweentown. He hates everyone and everything, and he lives in a messy cottage. Things that get lost in both the mortal world and Halloweentown ends up in Gort's cottage. He has a pet giant bug, which is the only thing that he shows kindness or love towards.
As a reversal, Gort feels complimented when someone something that should be insultive toward him; Aggie desribed him as the meanest, dirtiest and all-around messy person ever, something he felt was like being buttered up. Under the Grey Spell, he becomes a quiet and kind man who dislikes dirt. When Marnie kept switching him with "Apart" and "Trapa", he was left diorinatated and disgusted with himself.
Anything lost in his house goes poof. In other words, it's gone forever!
