Gretel is Kasper’s good friend. She is clever,
practical, and helpful. She often helps Kasper by
outsmarting the villains. With her many positive
traits, Gretel is a good female role model.
Whereas Kasper is the classic archetype of the
hero, Gretel symbolizes the commoner capable
of performing heroic deeds. Children most
closely identify themselves with Gretel and her
brother Seppel. Gretel is the diminutive form of
Margaret in German. Hence, the name Maggie
can be substituted for American children.
